Someone used a Planescape term "Prime" as a reference to people who live on the Prime Material Plane. Since Sigil is part of the Realms, I'm assuming they use the usual planar cant, and thus the correct term for a person would be a "Primer". "The Prime" is the nickname given to the Prime Material Plane itself.--DarastrixUxBahumati 17:37, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Without references, I wouldn't pay too much attention to the accuracy of this article. One action would be to change it as you see fit, but a better action would be to add references for the article so that its accuracy is not in question! Fw190a8 01:05, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
The Planescape cant term is "prime." "Prime" refers both to the Prime Material Plane and to those native to that plane. "Primer" is not a word that exists in planar cant. See The Planewalker's Handbook, page 153, for example, or Sigil and Beyond in the Planescape Campaign Setting, page 72 (where Darkwood is called a "Male human prime" - clearly he isn't a plane of existence. - 18:43, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Fixed(?) The same sources that refernce Sigil also reference the terminology.--DarastrixUxBahumati 18:29, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
UN-fixed and removed the changes I just made until I have the time to format the references properly.--DarastrixUxBahumati 18:33, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Probably the best reference is A Player's Guide to the Planes in the Planescape Campaign Setting boxed set, page 8, and The Planewalker's Handbook, page 8. The word is "prime," not "primer." -- 18:47, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Then I stand corrected.--DarastrixUxBahumati 18:55, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
