The Known World
The Known World
My original idea will probably have to wait, instead how is this- the start of either a Mystara Dictionary or an index for this wiki (we could develop this in either direction). Here is a start to the letter "A":
Goals for each entry:
Stage One- have each entry with a word or two in way of explanation
Stage Two- have each entry with a short sentence or two in way of explanation
Stage Three- have each entry be a link to an article on here
The first issue is we should set some guidelines for sorting names.
What does anyone think? Is/Would this be useful? I can start the first few letters but this will take a lot of work from others as well.
note: not all of these are worthy of being turned into full articles, probably the vast majority are not worthy.
