Dungeons & Dragons "boxed" editions
Shouldn't there be a mention that the Known World Gazetteers did not originate from Advanced Dungeons & Dragons? It was published for the "boxed set" version of Dungeons & Dragons, which did not use the word "Advanced" although the rules material ended up being pretty extensive in its own right and were collected into a hardcover, before the "boxed set" version was discontinued. A lot of good ideas started in D&D as opposed to AD&D, such as weapon specialization bonuses. Then D&D was discontinued, and the version of the game using multiple hardcover rulebooks changed name from Advanced Dungeons & Dragons to simply Dungeons & Dragons. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:38, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
- Does it appear that this article currently conveys the idea that the gazetteers might originate from the AD&D game? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:48, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
- The Gazetteers (extensive material on the Known World) originated with Dungeons & Dragons, but not with the version which is now called Dungeons & Dragons. It's confusing and obscures proper recognition. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:07, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
I have added source material published on Mystara, hopefully clarifying some of the Dungeons & Dragons vs. Advanced Dungeons & Dragons question above in the process. However, I do not know which of the general Dungeons & Dragons products refer to or can be considered Mystara material. Perhaps someone could add the appropriate products?
In case most Dungeons & Dragons products could be considered Mystaran, I am not sure if the source material list I started here really makes sense, or if referring to another list of Dungeons & Dragons material would be better?
I have also added some in-line citations. It would be great, however, if someone could provide more "secondary source" than Dragon magazine. I imagine that some source other than TSR has made some statement about the Mystara setting over the years? Daranios (talk) 18:03, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
