Checking Acaeum shows not just 4 versions of Deities & Demigods, but something they call "Forth Plus" that was published with that title, before the book was renamed Legends & Lore. We have a Legends & Lore page on the Book-House, but that's a page about the 2e version.Falconer wrote:A nitpick, if I may. The AD&D book was titled Deities & Demigods for printings 1-4, and Legends & Lore for printings 5-8. The Cthulhu Mythos is contained only in printings 1-2, so, definitely it should be cited under the earlier title.
One of the reasons for the Book-House is to help people work out what D&D books they want to buy. And it seems to me that this book is very confusing (or could be very confusing, to someone who doesn't know about the removal of two pantheons or the name change).
I don't think the Book-House is likely to go into the same sort of nerdy level of detail that Acaeum does (that's why the pages here link to their articles) but I'm thinking we need more disambiguation with this book.
I'm trying to decide between keeping this on one page or having two pages. I think we need a generic "warning" template for books where purchasers have to be careful about which specific printings they buy.
What do people think would be easiest from the point of view of a newbie, who knows nothing about the 17 pantheons being dropped down to 15?
