[Mystara Database] Government Types

Post by Thorf » Mon Jul 14, 2008 7:22 am

We're going to need a comprehensive list of government types with short descriptions for the Locations table.

mdb_government_type
id
government_type
description
mdb_source_id @ (the main source of the description)

Would anyone like to chip in? I'd like the descriptions to be based on official sources, but not just copied and pasted (obviously). ;)

Do you mean something like the 'Government Type' lines on Mystaran Governments by James Ruhland

While James's list is good, I was thinking more along the simpler lines of the tables on the Trail Maps, and the details given in other official sources like the Poor Wizard's Almanacs: Theocracy, Feudal Monarchy, Independent Tribes, etc.

A quick look through the Poor Wizard's Almanac II suggests that we might want to have a "government type details" field too, to hold the specific details of the type keyword.
