Are you going to want everything that is part of this campaign setting locked? --Green Dragon 23:27, 20 September 2006 (MDT)

Hmmm good question... I'd say that was not necessary. I do want suggestions and all that. Also, I cannot catch all typos and grammar errors by myself. And having to unlock, correct, and relock a page for every typo seems a bit unnecessary. Perhaps later on, when the settings is almost completely done.

Okay, just remember to tell me when to lock it. --Green Dragon 22:13, 21 September 2006 (MDT)

PDF on D&D Wiki?[edit]

Hello. Do you want the PDF file to be stored on D&D Wiki? It will be saving bandwidth for the external site, and it will also allow D&D Wiki to be usable fully even if that external site goes down. Let me know what you think. — Blue Dragon (talk) 11:54, 11 April 2007 (MDT)

It'd be cool if you could do that. I know I've been away for quite some time now, but real life's really being a bitch at me currently. -.- But the WGCS is still making progresses, no worries. ;) Just check the CBG Thread for the recent update. :)
I don't know if it will be of help, but I switched to DocBook for writing the WGCS. If you want, I can post the XML sourcefiles. Perhaps there was a transformation to make Wiki "code" out of them? Ra-Tiel 00:35, 13 April 2007 (MDT)
Hello Ra-Tiel. If you wold post the XML sourcefiles, I would be happy to look them over and see if there is a good way to convert them to wiki code. Thanks! — Blue Dragon (talk) 21:55, 16 April 2007 (MDT)
Hi. Sorry for the delay, but the last weeks were quite exhausting. I got a new version of the the setting PDF, and a ZIP with the DocBook sources. I've also been googling around a bit and found this, perhaps it can help you finding a way of converting the XML files into Wiki code. Regards. --Ra-Tiel 15:26, 7 May 2007 (MDT)
I started to convert them. Let me know if Worldgate (3.5e Campaign Setting)/Basics looks the way you want it to. If it does, then I will continue to convert the rest of them. — Blue Dragon (talk) 11:12, 13 May 2007 (MDT)
Hello Ra-Tiel. I have converted all of the XML sourcefiles that were in the zip (Basics, Skills, Races, and Abilities and Karma). If you can get me the others, it will not take long to convert them. Disclaimer: I have not wikified any of the files — I just converted them to wiki format. They still need to have templates applied, and I feel that some of them (Skills, Races) should be split up into separate pages for each item. — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:54, 13 May 2007 (MDT)
I also did not add references to any of the tables. There is an extension to do this on D&D Wiki, but I did not include it in the converted Wiki code. — Blue Dragon (talk) 17:58, 13 May 2007 (MDT)
Wow, looks good! :D I hope it wasn't too difficult to make the transformation? :D
However, one thing. I wondered exactly what definitions I would have to use to make sure that the setting stuff (races descriptions, societies, nations, ...) would be marked as PI, while the game mechanics (ability values, races game information, skills, ...) would remain open under the OGL. Do you think that a notice at the beginning of each page would be enough, or that there was something else to do?
--Ra-Tiel 22:51, 13 May 2007 (MDT)
A notice should be enough. --Green Dragon 22:10, 8 August 2007 (MDT)

Converted files in Races missing characters[edit]

In the races section, some of the first letters on each line were accidentally cut off. This needs to be fixed before these go into production. This only applies to unordered lists. — Blue Dragon (talk) 18:01, 13 May 2007 (MDT)

Just curious, has this been done yet? --Green Dragon 22:15, 8 August 2007 (MDT)


discussion on worldgate campaign setting


Well, what can I say? I have been toying around with this idea for quite some time now, and finally decided to put it down. The Worldgate Campaign Setting (WGCS) could probably be best described as "Babylon 5 meets Stargate meets EarthDawn", although I'm also having some ideas of my own :P . I had started the first discussion about it here on the WotC boards, but now have grown utterly frustrated as to the complete lack of feedback and answers.

All basic information as to my inspiration and motivations, mechanical changes (which are drastic indeed as I do away with HPs and AC), and class mechanics can be found in that thread. There is also a preview PDF available here which shows a bit of what I have in mind for the WGCS.

If you have any comments, suggestions, questions, or ideas regarding the WGCS, just drop me a line on the discussion page. The same's true for any grammatical and spelling errors. If you find some, just tell me on what page/section/paragraph and I'll correct it. Thanks guys. :)


UPDATE: Although having been very busy recently, I got around working on the WGCS again. I know it sounds silly, but I changed the system again. *doh* No matter what class combination I tried, it just wouldn't work out for the flavor I had in mind for the CS. Therefore, I decided to ditch classes altogether and go for a purely skill based system.
I've got a new preview file up here and a corrosponding thread over on the Campaign Builders' Guild. The basic premise and tone of the setting remain the same, just the mechanics changed. I'm currently experimenting around with the skills and feat trees.
Btw, I wish you all a Happy New Year 2007. :D

So, finally something new on this site. ^^ I've been working for quite some time now on the WCS, and made a switch from LaTeX to XML as the underlying technology for writing (as you probably already knew if you took a look at the dicussion ;) ). All the old stuff previously on this site (like the weaponmaster class), are utterly obsolete by now (and therefore removed from the project).
BlueDragon is currently converting the XML sources into wikipages, so I think that there'll be soon some more content. :)
