  1. I think it is useful. If for nothing else, it gives me some ideas to think about when organizing information. My campaign has gone on for almost three years and the characters are at name level, it is getting harder to keep ahead of them and and keeping the binder organized. This will help in seeing how I can keep on top of some the items in the setting without creating huge amounts of material that won't see use.

  2. I think it's useful. Compared to what I use in my own games I'd say that it'd be too much information for my game, though. I don't need that many council members, for example. I'm also not sure what to do with the Obstacles section. I really like the local gods (never thought of that) and the list of names (I usually keep a list of names for the entire campaign, having a list per region makes it more interesting and takes very little space).
