DF and Wikipedia 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
Anyone ever noticed that a table top set-up using DF is used on the Wikipedia page for 'Dungeons & Dragons':

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeons_%26_Dragons

(Scroll down lots and lots..)
Here is the picture used:



Pity that DF is not credited.

Are there any other such 'finds' ??

That's pretty cool. I've never edited a Wikipedia entry, but it must be possible to give credit/add a citation of some sort.

I did a quick search- Jeff Martin has an entry but DF itself does not.

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

Well, Dwarven Forge is kinda a D&D icon; like polyhedrons (and we wouldn't lament not mentioning a dice manufacturer).

That blast template on the other hand... I'm pretty sure that's not a D&D item. What is that, a Warhammer blast template or something?

Thanks granpappy77, That was a really good read & It does reference Stefan & DF pretty well.
Wiki Link direct to Jeff Martin
Both deserve their own pages though :)

matthew_vincent, I see what you mean about mentioning dice manufactures every time a dice is in shot. I think my feelings were just tainted with 'good old DF bias' :D
They are 100% playing Dungeons & Dragons. All books & character sheets check out.
Re - that fireball or blast cut out: - I use 'blast radius' props & bits & bobs from all kinds of games to act as aids for game play.

Is there a Dwarven Forge wiki entry?

Who made the Jeff Martin page and (whoever it was) why didn't they also make a Dwarven Forge entry?
