While constructing a timeline of world events for well, The World (as its known in 4e), I found myself looking for references across the Internet.

Fortunately, a number of people in the past have had very similar ideas, and they created great lists of citations.

On that note, the Internet has been a fantastic resource in general (I shouldn’t need to tell you this) for locating and organizing obscure bits of D&D miscellany.

Among other things, it helped me come to realize how “small” the world of Planescape really was. I forget if I mentioned this already, but it was nice to be able to see the entire product line broken down nearly on a single page.

It actually helped me contextualize some of the other product lines and campaign settings in a more… pragmatic, I suppose? fashion than I previously believed possible.

My cosmonomicon is currently broken down into individual references and citations organized in Trello. I think I’m better beginning to understand the limitations of the app, and is be willing to experiment with something else after the cosmonomicon is completed. (Or at least developed to my satisfaction.)

I’ve been careful to include citations as I create pages on my campaign wiki because there are few things more frustrating than trying to recall (and then subsequently being forced to search for) something you got from no fewer than three locations across four editions.

Ugh, like with the Manual of the Planes. That’s been printed in every edition.

Last night I added a table which functions as a district-by-district breakdown of an adventure location we’ve been using in the library campaign. It’s intended for use by players or the Dungeon Master, with rumors and hooks instead of ‘secrets.’

I’d honestly like to add one for most of the cities our campaigns have taken us, but I really don’t think enough material exists to just MAKE them, I’d probably wind up writing a lot of the material myself.

Which I’m not against doing, mind. I just have other stuff to do at the moment.

Oh, and Cornerstones is moving along in fits and starts. I have some more… sources, I guess? to draw from. All the citations help, I’m working with 1e and 2e D&D more for inspiration and development. I read an article that gave me a new way to read Keep on the Borderlands that was helpful. It had uh, flowcharts, I think.

Short post this morning, I have other stuff to work on.
