The WRs are listed, in DL order, under each section. So, the Chapter headed 
Dark Creatures, section Goblins, would have any DL 1-3 (or 4-7 or 8-10) WR's 
there. The table of contents, at the beginning, will tell you where to find 
that section. The index, at the back, lists Verse Address and WR Name. I do 
not have a spearate index by DL, but the new numbering system is easy for 
that. The last 3 digits are the WR number, the first 1 or 2, the DL. So, 
1089 would be WR 89, DL 1. 0003 is WR3, no DL (The Emergency WR's)
