Name of Inn

The name of this inn is a jumble of the two inns referenced in TC1: Into the Haunted Forest. Mike McArtor admits the mistake here. So the questions is, do we make an entry for all three inns? This is supposed to be the Travelers Stop Inn but got the "wood" part from the Spirit of the Wood inn located in the middle of Arthfell Forest. Gee, isn't compiling canon fun when there are discrepancies between products? -- Yoda8myhead 21:05, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Personally it seems a bit odd to create a page for what one of the writers has admitted was effectively a typo. I think its probably best just to compile the information in the Traveler's Stop Inn and perhaps make a note where the information from the entry comes from and the spelling error. It seems like a lot of effort to write an entry for a place that is not meant to exist. That's my take on it anyway. -- Cheddar bearer 21:51, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that's sort of what I'm thinking, too. There's a lot of info on the inn, it's owner, and staff in the module, so I will move the article to that title. This way, any other references to the Inn of the Wood will go to the correct entry. The Spirit of the Wood inn should get its own entry as well. -- Yoda8myhead 21:56, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

In somewhat related news there is also an issue with the halfling language. Page 221 of the Campaign Setting states that the language formed eons ago. Then it states later in the same entry that it formed during the time of halfling slavery in Cheliax. Um, didn't that practice only begin after the Infernal takeover? Did the Chelaxians practice halfling slavery back when Aroden was still alive? -11:32, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

I believe that slavery has been practiced just about everywhere until the Andoren revolution in 4669. To my knowledge, this level of detail hasn't been divulged yet about slavery, but in the meantime, I'd phrase it as an eons old language which morphed into its modern form within the context of their slavery in Cheliax. We might want to make a "canon conflict" template which can be placed somewhere on articles where it applies to state that there is some official contradiction on the issue, and clarify the two (or more) variations. Let's start a forum discussion of how to handle these types of situations. -- Yoda8myhead 21:33, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
