    Zavoda Index -- new ways to research topics for Greyhawk

    Hey all,

    We have recently been getting a lot of questions about the Zavoda Index; a research tool that allows you to find out in which Sourcebook (Dragon magazine, Living Greyhawk Gazetteer, etc) specific topics are discussed.

    There are now new ways of using the Zavoda Index.

    1- Offline; donwload the Excel version located in the Downloads section in Canonfire.
    http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=7

    2- Use this new tool that Gary is developing for online usage. It is in the early stages at this point. You can copy the link below to your browser URL.
    http://dev.greyparticle.com/zavoda/search.php?topic=EnterTopicHere
    ---> Replace "EnterTopicHere" with what you want to search. For example:
    http://dev.greyparticle.com/zavoda/search.php?topic=Mordenkainen
    Once the list comes up, if you hover over the Source abbreviation, you will get the full name of the Source.

    3- A pdf version of the index can be found here:
    https://melkot.com/mechanics/Encyclopedia-Greyhawkania2003.pdf

    4- You can select the Search button at the top of Canonfire (this web site) and do a search and it will provide the Zavoda index information on that topic. If you hover over the Source abbreviation, it provides the full name of the Source.

    The second link doesn't work for me. The screen is divided down the middle but with nowhere to enter anything and no links.

    We have been improving it. Try it now and see what happens when you hover over the Source abbreviations. You should see a pop up with the full name of the source.

    Like Edmundscott, I see only a divided screen with a blank page on the left and nothing on the right.

    Are you talking about this link?

    http://dev.greyparticle.com/zavoda/search.php?topic=Mordenkainen

    I click on it and get a full list of where Mordenkainen is used.

    It is a non-secure site, could that be a problem for your browser?

    Or are you talking about the link where it says "EnterTopicHere". Obviously that doesn't go anywhere, you need to actually replace that portion of the search string with an actual topic text.
