Consistency[edit]

Decided to flesh out this page a bit, but worried that I might be getting the style wrong. Doesn't seem to be much consistency within the various D&D settings though. Obviously the important details will vary from world to world, but there are probably some basic patterns that could be followed. FrozenPurpleCube 01:47, 5 September 2005 (UTC)

Some consistency in describing all the game worlds would probably be nice. A basic outline and some sort of list of salient facts would probably be sufficient. (Though I suppose it might take a little doing to coordinate even such a small list of items amongst what is probably a rather large community of contributors....)

There are a few things I think should also be included in this description:

  1. A summary of the domain level of play.
  2. A list and brief description of major characters in the setting.  (The Gorgon, Rhoubhe, etc.)

I'd be happy to contribute, but is there anything else that seems like it should be included? Geeman 08:07, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

I added a section on the Domain level, but it is rather rough. I also moved the paragraph about the fan-produced 3e Birthright Update at the end of the section on Birthright products rather than in the introductory text under a section called "New Products" since I think that's more appropriate.

Tags justified?[edit]

- Notability:
'In 1996, Birthright won the Origins Award for Best Roleplaying Supplement of 1995.'
Wikipedia:Notability (books) says that a book is notable when it has won a major literary award. Birthright is a game and has won a game award. Is there a list, which awards count as major for the purpose of establishing notability? If not, I would see this criterion as fulfilled and therefore remove the tag.
- Lacking citations:
All plot summary information presented here is based on the books listed unter 'List of Birthright Products'. Maybe this could be made clearer still (using footnotes?). Only the sources providing real-world context are missing.
In this light: Is the lacking citations tag really justified?

Dragon?[edit]

I saw nothing about those articles in Dragon Magazine which had Birthright as theme and described various details. Should those be mentioned here? On birthright.net they are already mentioned. ConjurerDragon (talk) 10:06, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Which Dragon articles? The only one I see mentioned is the one that says Rich Baker co-designed the setting, unless I am just missing something. 24.148.0.83 (talk) 12:02, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

There are several Dragon and as far as I remember 1 Dungeon Magazine that contain articles about Birthright. Dungeon Magazine 59 May/June 1996 contains a full adventure in the Birthright world: "Seeking Bloodsilver", Dragon Magazine 249 contains the article "Heroes of Cerilia", Dragon 241 contains the "Chronicle of Cerilia", Dragon 221 contains new realmspells for the Birthright setting, Dragon 232 "Weapon of the Waves (Seapower in Cerilia)", Dragon 248 an article about a Dragon of Vstaive Peak, Dragon 216 an article about "Simone Hawkes Birthright", Dragon 233 contains an article about an Al-Quadim adventure modified for the Birthright setting "Scions of the Desert" ConjurerDragon (talk) 20:14, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Why not! Birthright didn't have an overabundance of source text, so it couldn't hurt to mention (briefly, in most cases) any supporting material that appeared for it. 24.148.0.83 (talk) 01:16, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
