I noticed a few things that could do with a bit of improvement.
Someone has tagged the d20 System section for a lack of citations. (IMO this was done by a lazy tag-and-run merchant, as I found a couple of things on Google and I'm sure they could have done that as easily as me.)
The following facts still need reliable sources (for citations):
- "Goodman and Zeitgeist also produced a Blackmoor d20 adventure module, Dave Arneson's Blackmoor: The Redwood Scar (2004) and sourcebook, Dave Arneson's Blackmoor: The Wizards Cabal (2005)." - As far as I can see that would be confirmation that Goodman Games published/distributed these two. (Are there any more GG products?)
- In 2006 Zeigteist Games started publishing new books on their own. The 2006 release calendar includes a softcover reprint (with added content) of Dave Arneson's Blackmoor Campaign Setting, a hardcover version of the Dungeons of Castle Blackmoor, Player's Guide to Blackmoor, and the adventure 'Temple of the Frog (which had a sneak preview event at Gen Con 2007)." - As far as I can see that would be a confirmation of the Zeitgiest Games dates, plus a second confirmation about the GenCon thing.
- "The version of the campaign for D&D 3.5 ended in February 2009 at Megacon with a version of the campaign for D&D 4th Edition expected to launch at GenCon 2009." - The words "expected to launch" make me think this is a guess. Does anyone know what actually happened? Got a source for that?
- "A List of their released adventures can be found here. The episodes for the MMRPG are available for free to play at home and at Gaming conventions such as Gen Con and Megacon." - Hmm. This first sentence is just bad. But I think that the link itself could probably be used as a citation for the rest of this bit.
- "Megacon is Blackmoor's home convention, where the new season is kicked off each year." - I can't find anything to back this up on the Megacon website. In any case, it seems to relate to MMRPG rather than the d20 System game. Is there anything on the MMRPG website?
I'm tempted to make MMRPG a separate section following the d20 System section (as it would seem to be a slightly different thing, that uses the 3e game and changes it). Maybe the relationship between Greyhawk and Living Greyhawk could provide a clue.
PREPOST EDIT: Just checked that. They have two sections for 3e and LG.
Has anyone got a clean copy of the Blackmoor logo? Other settings (eg: Greyhawk and Spelljammer) have the logo in a box at the top of the page. From what I can see on other pages, people will moan if the fair use rationale isn't explained or if the resolution is too high (so I might need it crunched down a bit).
Another thing to mention is a question on the article's talk page:
How does this fit into the big picture?Should there be an inclusion of Arneson's pseudo supplement/outline of Blackmoor that Judges Guild published back in the day? I believe it contains material that still hasn't been re-presented in any other source. 18.104.22.168 05:35, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
One final thing I would say is that this article is biased towards Mystara. It makes no mention of the connection to Greyhawk or Wilderlands of High Adventure. I think the Mystara stuff should be there, but the relationship with the other settings should be explained. Havard was recently posting about the C&C Socieity and something about that might also be helpful (from a historical point of view).
That is all I can think of, but I know that there is a lot of real-world stuff about Blackmoor on Dragonsfoot and other places. It is possible that elements unique to Blackmoor could be explained a bit better. I'm not entirely sure where the campaign would be explained. It seems like Blackmoor was pretty much aborted by TSR, before it started. And the DA modules have got "Mystara polution".
Perhaps the Blackmoor article needs something like the Greyhawk article's Early development or Home campaign sections. (Actually, I'm really liking the way the GH article breaks the history down into years - rather than just editions. Maybe Blackmoor could benifit from that sort of change.)
