As of now is tagged in 26 questions with no wiki entry for it. has 105 tagged questions and has a short yet, decent wiki entry:

Writing, managing, and expanding campaigns.

I feel that all the questions tagged Story could just as easily be tagged campaign-development and that its redundant to have Story as a tag at all. The Campaign-development tag could be reworded more explicitly to include story development within a campaign and could absorb all questions currently tagged Story. Please chime in with your thoughts.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mxyzplk The kind of questions asked in story largely seemed to match a subset of those asked under campaign-development. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2013 at 15:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ they are not synonymous but campaign development does involve story. the two are inexorably bound to each other. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Okay, I misused synonymous, that is my fault, but Novian gets at what I am trying to communicate which is that story questions can be contained within campaign-development questions without any harm to the story questions. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2013 at 17:21
  • \$\begingroup\$ Question has been edited to fit my intent, removed mention of synonym. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2013 at 17:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SevenSidedDie Thanks for the edit, I had that in there as a copy while I was editing in case I changed it too much and then left the dupe of the question in after the fact by accident. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 1, 2013 at 19:32

No. "Campaign" and "story" are not interchangeable, and neither is necessarily a subset of the other. Not all campaigns have a plot, and not all plots are the length of a campaign.

I do (personally) think that is not a very good tag, but it's not a problem tag so sleeping dogs get to lie undisturbed.

    \$\begingroup\$ +1 to me they have separate implications, only crossing over sometimes - and most tags cross over sometimes. \$\endgroup\$
