Just finished them, and the "Special Issues" page also.

Comments and/or criticisms are welcomed and encouraged.


Just don't blame me for the "Special Issues" page - they won't index properly. (Grubbiv and Hermit are working on it)


Dave, get the barbarian in the corner a drink, quick!

Superb effort jkason!

There has been plenty of discussion over the years I have been here to expand the Dragon and Dungeon databases on the Acaeum and thanks largely to yourself (for Dragon), Avurax (for Dungeon), grubbiv, kersus and a few others it is happening.

I can only implore other Acaeum members to jump in and try it themselves. The Wiki offers the perfect framework to present periodicals and RPG lines on finished web pages. It is easy to do and strengthening the quality of Acaeum RPG resources with every new item.

I noticed the Best of Dragon Vol. II Revised does not have a picture. I have that issue, not sure if a scan for that is needed. If so let me know and I will get one out to you.

There is also a Best of Dragon Vol. I Collectors Edition.  I don't think it has a different cover compared to the regular one, just states it on the index page.  Unfortunately mine's buried right now.

Where does it state that? (I missed it) I didn't see it on the TOC of either issue.


Nagata - Yeah. Scan the cover and the ToC. Send them to me through here or at [email protected]. (or better yet, register with Hermit or Grubbiv and upload stuff yourself.)

Thanks!


Edited (twice) because I can't string two thoughs together coherently.

I can try to dig out my copy, but it maybe a while.

Good job, and a full sweep!  Albeit temporary.

I've acquired some Dragon mags still in the bag, I'm looking to help Joe with possible discrepancies as far as the inserts included with each issue.  We're talking about what level of detail to go into, and I'm wondering if anyone else has an opinion?

For example, a Forgotten Realms Conspectus or Core Rules demo cd seem like they should be noted.  But what about WOTC flyers or a generic card inserted advertising fantasy baubles (statues, jewelry, etc)?

I'd say include everything that was sent.  Similar to the fliers found in SW products and box sets.

Wow. Talk about completism.

Scan the flyers and ads in, and post them where appropriate.


I haven't been doing any posting, because of the screwed up scripting problem. I will continue as soon as the problem is rectified. (Not my area of expertise).

Thank you so much.  I owe you that beer.  Am listing some Dragons for sale and needed a place to check for completeness.  I've got some things to post in the Wiki as well.  Will probably have to ask hermit-from-pluto for a refresher course, it's been so long.  Long live the Acaeum Wiki!

Indeed! Absolutely superb effort. I hope I get the chance to buy you a beer one day too. It really is a great resource.

Happy to give you a refresher any time lucyjoyce.
