    What the heck!? I don't know if this has been mentioned, which it probably has, but this is cool! Perhaps I'm overreacting, but.. do any of us modify any of these articles? If not, we should! Especially, ILLMATER'S SUFFERING, I might add.

    Here.

    My first thoughts on seeing this were 'WotC is gonna be pissed if people transpose all the information from their (ridiculously expensive) manuals to this site.' Its neat, though quite barebones at the moment. Maybe one day i'll contribute something... one day.

    Wow, Forgotten Realms has its own little Wiki portal now. I would have thought a long article, but this is impressive. Maybe one day it'll actually fill out and contain enough useful information as so I won't have to plop down $35 US for a DnD manual...

    Pretty much everything there is already on Wikipedia, and usually way more detailed. Not that this is really news, since there are dozens of splinter wikis for pretty much every topic imaginable, replicating and duplicating content between themselves. If anything, this one seems bound for legal issues faster than any others I've seen.

    Basicaly I aggre with what Tal said.

    There is little or no infomation in Forgotten Realms Wiki that can't be found in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is probably more accurate to.

    Well, someone should add things to it so it can be in a focused place for easier access? :)
