Dragonlance Campaign Setting (the book) is 1st party, even though none of the other books for the Dragonlance campaign setting (the setting) are.

What base class(es) does it contain?

@Maat:  I know, but I ended up putting it in 2nd party stuff in the organizing fervor I had going.  I'll move it up  and make a note.

Only fully realized and statted classes will be added to this.  The Witch is a no-go.

Are you including fully-statted class variants from dragon mag like Wild Reaper Druid?

Wild Reaper (and come to think of it, the Urban Druid and some others) are in iffy territory since they're clearly shown as variants, but they tend to have enough changes that maybe being shown as a whole different class would work.

To head off something though, Psychic Rogue definitely gets its own entry because going from noncaster to functional caster is a huge thing, even if it's not a full progression.

I let Urban Druid get in because it changed the casting stat and put quite a different emphasis on the class's abilities to the point where its name could be changed to something more in line with city life (maybe Urban Savant or something, despite that already being a named class in Cityscape) and the only hints it might be similar to the actual druid would be an abstract concept of getting imbued with power based on the livelihood of one's surroundings, and a bit of shapchanging and a companion.

How I'll handle certain class variants is something I really need to think on now.  I had intended to put them in the Dragon Mag ACF guide, but they could fit here too.  Decisions, decisions...

I had a brainwave while mowing the lawn:  I'll just make a different index for the alternate base classes found in Dragon Mag, and then do the actual ACFs in another index.

I should probably condense these particular indexes to have just one discussion thread to make things easier.

Here is a google doc spreadsheet of the Base Class Index

I have also included base classes from Dark Sun and Kalamar
