chronology

Anyone know of a Greyhawk chronology that provides a citation for each entry, so that it clear where the author got the information?

The GreyChrondex included citations: http://www.canonfire.com/cf/ghchrondex.php

Rip can tell you if there's a better/more current source, though! :D

I would've recommended the GreyChrondex too. Steve Wilson stopped updating it in 2001, but as far as I know Paul isn't interested in post-2e sources anyway.

I'd forgotten that. Ugh, probably because his citation short hand is so annoying... "11621" for "
11621 Slavers, 2000" is so annoying and difficult to use. :( But I guess I will have to. I keep hoping for something like my Spelljammer chronology, which I think is very user friendly (if not, please tell me how it can be better).

I think he's asking you to point him to your Spelljammer chronology (it's here).

I'm just often a moron. :)

I am in the midst of updating that, BTW, including items I had missed, plus Hackjammer and Mystaran dates. Greyhawk scholarship, both my own knowledge and the field broadly, was less advanced when I originally did that chronology, so i am working to add more relevant Greyhawk entries as well.
