comment Help Identify a Medieval City
@doppelgreener I disagree in that developing settings are part of RPGs. A lot of setting prep involves kitbashing real world information. Given this I felt I had a good shot of finding an answer as it happens there are two good answers on this question. And in the past I had negative experience trying to ask these types of question on the history forums. Even something as simple as "What are medieval sheepfolds used for in herding?" got closed. My view is that given the flexibility of RPGs these question are on-topic as long as they are clearly related to prep which this one was.

comment Help Identify a Medieval City
@doppelgreener Prep work for many RPGs involve looking at real-world historical and geographical research. The difference is that the answer that historians give is not always in a gamable form. Asked here it likely will be in a form useful to a game. This site is a Q&A is about RPGs which are not just a bag of rules but also involves developing, prepping, and running campaigns, setting, and adventures. I was working a city for a RPG campaign and wanted an answer useful for a game hence I asked it here.

comment How many editions of Dungeons & Dragons are there?
@KorvinStarmast Because there is a distinct difference between core book only OD&D and OD&D plus Greyhawk. Unlike Blackmoor and Eldritch Wizardry, Greyhawk not only expands the games but alters it into the form that most people recognize as classic D&D.
