I would add TSR's "The Complete Book of Necromancers" (1995) to your list. The campaign section (Chapter 9) has close ties with the Al-Qadim Ruined Kingdoms box set.

Minor nitpick...

City of Delights has a release date of June 1996 listed, but its place in the list would seem to indicate that it was released June 1993. The RPG Geek link also indicates a release year of 1993 for this title.

You are welcome. :D

I'm putting together a list of all the game products and novels in order of release date for my own purposes and these guides are my primary resource. ;)

Echohawk, where did you gwet the Polyhedron articles from? Do you have a Polyhedron index ?
Mostly I have a complete collection of Polyhedrons :p. But yes, I have a Polyhedron index I found on the web some years ago which I saved and which is a good starting point for lists of Polyhedron articles for various settings.

Would you post a link to this, please? I think most of us know of the DragonDex, and have found the thread here where Jay A. Hafner made his Complete Dungeon Index. But I've never seen a Polyhedron index so far.

I'd have posted a link if I had one, but the only copy I know of is on my hard drive. As I mentioned, I found it a few years ago and saved a copy. I haven't been able to find an online version again since then, and I think it may have disappeared.

Is it this index? If it is another one can you please attach the file?
Yup, that looks very similar to the one I have saved (although mine doesn't have the page formatting yours does). I didn't realise that it came from the RPGA section of the WotC site, but sadly it looks like it is no longer available there :(

I've made some minor additions to this guide -- an essay from the 1993 TSR Collector's Catalog and a (partial) list of Al-Qadim RPGA tournament adventures.

#2713 Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Four (1998) Has list of Al Qadim spells in Appendix section. This list adds some spells like 9th Level Create Water spell from 'FR:Anauroch' book's bedine sorcerers (which is also created by Jeff Grub, one of the designers of Al Qadim). I also noticed 'Wind Servant' spell in this list and I don't know which source it comes from!

Thanks for this feedback Oqlanth. I've added the Book of Artifacts to the guide.
#2145 Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume One (1994) re-features some Al Qadim monsters (with Tony DiTerlizzi drawn pictures)
#2158 Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Two (1995) like Volume One this volume alse features some Al Qadim monsters

I haven't added these products to this guide, since while some of the monsters listed did originate in the Al-Qadim setting, I think they stopped being specifically Al-Qadim critters once they were published in the annuals and the Planescape products. Including those in this list would mean adding many of the later monster sources to the Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms guides, since a lot of the generic D&D monsters originated in the Realms or Oerth.

I think you mean the Wizards Spell Compendium Volume Four here. I've chosen not to include any of the Wizard's or Priest's Spell Compendiums in the individual campaign settings, because that would mean including them in all of the campaign setting guides, which seemed a little redundant.

And as an aside: I also have no idea where the Wind Servant wizard spell originated. There is a Wind Servant spell in Player's Option: Spells and Magic, but that's a priest spell, and different to the one in the Wizard's Spell Compendium.

Really, that's the one 2nd Ed complete book I don't have, and I'm a huge Al-Qadim fan, damn!
