Continuing the discussion from Baldurs Gate III post- trailer discussion:
We talk about paracosms of sorts all the time, and I have a feeling Forgotten Realms is gonna be mentioned more often very soon.
The “Realms” are many locations, and I don’t want to online street map it, I do think having a database of locations and their narrative or geographical relationships.
But how to even get started?! I suppose… is there prior work, aside from Wikidata? Are there common or sane taxonomies that make sense? I don’t even know.
It would probably be easier to use an example, so here’s one: the locations of Baldur’s Gate 1. What data makes sense to track, for that specific world, as well as generally?
