  • I'm currently working on the categorization of items, but this topic applies to other categories as well, such as spells and creatures.

    There are (were) the currently used categories that start with "New items in …". They seem mostly used to indicate that an item is newly added by that specific expansion/enhanced edition to the base game/original edition. However, there are also articles with a list of such items (currently only for BG:EE, SoD and BGII:EE, not for TotSC and ToB).

    That means, all items that would be available in e.g. Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear but not in Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, no matter where available, would go into this category. This seems to be a nice purpose, but we still have that list for this. My intention becomes perhaps more clear when looking at the original Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal instead: all items created especially for that campaign would be in "new in ToB", no matter if only available in that campaign or already during Shadows of Amn at e.g. Watcher's Keep.

    I'd like to change this, so that "new" says, that thing is new and wasn't here before, instead of "being new to the stack of known/available things". Such as the Merchants' League Counting House after the installation of Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, or the mentioned Watcher's Keep with all stuff from it; creatures or spells with altered stats in Siege of Dragonspear that now also are different during the Baldur's Gate campaign, etc. And not anymore for all things that were added to the existing BG:EE stack of things by SoD. Else we would also need "New in SoA", to have a category for all things added/changed in the second part of the series, compared to things available in the first part.

    But I like to have your opinion on this, dear reader of the wiki. :)

    • As CalOkand obviously still hasn't got enough sleep over the course of the last three and a half days and nobody else seems to care, I've found a solution on my own.

      :p

      ;)
