PathfinderWiki:Dragon Empires Gazetteer Inclusion Initiative

From PathfinderWiki

In December 2011, Paizo published the Dragon Empires Gazetteer, which details a whole new continent of Golarion away from the heretofore favoured Inner Sea region: namely, Tian Xia.

This book's contents will expand the Pathfinder Wiki greatly in a number of areas and will provide the foundation for many future products set in Tian Xia. For this reason, the extra rigour of an 'Inclusion Initiative' is considered appropriate. This will incorporate all information from the Dragon Empires Gazetteer into the wiki as systematically as possible. To facilitate this and ensure that we do not skip sections, below is a listing of all sections in the book. Please place your 'signature' after any section you have fully completed and strike through the text; please leave the text in bold face and an administrator will check your work and then remove the emboldening on the text post that review. Use the talk page to ask any questions or comment on the process.

This inclusion initiative will follow the same rules as for the parallel work: the Inner Sea World Guide Inclusion Initiative. For instance, it is very important not only to create a complete article about each of the subjects listed below, but that one should also make sure that one's article contains no red links. The strength of the wiki is the ability to quickly browse between related topics via hyperlinking; without that, we are simply a book on the internet.

Dragon Empires Gazetteer contents

Below are the main headings within the Dragon Empires Gazetteer (DEG) which we should focus on. Some have been left out because they do not fall within the Scope of the project (such as feats). When committing to a specific topic, please place the {{DEGII}} template at the top of the root page on the subject to indicate that it is being worked on and by whom. Subarticles do not need this template but can include the {{WIP}} template, should you feel the need. Thus [[Minkai]] would have the DEGII template, but neither [[Absalom/Geography]] nor [[Jade Regent]] would use it even though both articles will be updated as part of the inclusion of the Minkai chapter of the DEG.

Dragon Empires Primer

Shortly after the publication of the Dragon Empires Gazetteer, Paizo published the Dragon Empires Primer as part of their Pathfinder Player Companion line. It is suggested that any articles written within the DEGII also incorporate material in the Dragon Empires Primer, where appropriate, and add a reference to this source.
