Inspirations[edit]

What source states Greenwood created the Elemental powers & where does it state he was inspired by Moorcock? To my knowledge, the elemental powers were created by Jeff Grubb for 1987's Manual of the Planes.--Robbstrd 01:18, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm on the same page as you with this one. I'm going to call this conjecture until I see some evidence. BOZ

The Elemental Powers were cribbed by Grubb from Ed Greenwood's campaign (in 1987, TSR published the first edition of the Realms). Greenwood credits Moorcock in his article "Down to Earth Divinity", in Dragon #54. This article has lots of details about the "real inspirations" of the various FR gods. 4.232.123.187 23:26, 29 March 2006 (UTC)Thasaidon

Lajos Kossuth[edit]

Someone continues to add a short historical note on the historical figure to this article. This is unnessecary, as no one searching for Lajos Kossuth would do a search for "Kossuth (Dungeons & Dragons)" & expect an article on the historical figure to appear. Simply searching for "Kossuth" takes one to a disambiguation page, so again, the addition is unnessecary.--Robbstrd 01:28, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

That is the origin of the name though correct?
Please sign your posts. As for the origin of the name, if it can be documented that the character was named for Lajos Kossuth, fine. If not, then we cannot rightfully make the assumption.--Robbstrd 00:11, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
I don't know if there is any connection between Lajos Kossuth and the Dungeons and Dragons Kossuth, but it might be worth noting that Palmer & Colton's seminal history textbook does refer to the Lajos Kossuth as "the flaming Kossuth". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.200.137.216 (talk) 04:34, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
