  • Poll Result: Which Wizard Would You Follow
    Hey Greyhawkers! Coinciding with the internet buzz about Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, I'm gonna muse over my latest (and possibly last due to Blogger) poll, Which Wizard Would You Follow? Greyhawk is a land of many mages, none as famous as the Circle of Eight. I gave a major section of the (...)

  • Greyhawk Grognard: Events of the Northwest
    Hail Greyhawkers! Today is a good day because Joseph Bloch at Greyhawk Grognard has finally added recent events in the Baklunish Northwest thus completing his roster of retro-articles based on the old Gary Gygax Dragon Magazine run of Greyhawk's World. Now those looking for updates on Zeif, (...)

  • Comic Redux: D&D Advert
    Welcome fans of Greyhawk! It's time to dig back into my long shut down Greyhawk Comic archives and have some fun. Here is one from several years ago. If anyone remembers these ads, you're in for a treat because this comic was the first in a series I did using the Greyhawk gods as characters in (...)

  • Infinity War and Greyhawk
    Hey Greyhawkers, it's your gleefully lazy friend here. Today I'm musing on the hottest movie in the world (right now) Avengers: Infinity War. If you haven't seen the last ten years worth of Marvel movies then what is wrong with you? This particular movie is based on the Infinity Gauntlet era of (...)

  • Map: Valley of the Mage and Dim Forest
    Hola, Greyhawkers! Today I'm here to share a map I drew recently. My friend Boshie has been taking part in the Greyhawk Channel's Vile & Villainous stream and she is playing a Shadar-Kai warlock from the Shadowfell (Plane of Shadow for us old dogs). What is a shadar-kai you ask? Well I (...)

  • Greyhawk Stuff OnTthe Web
    Hail Greyhawk fans! Been busy as of late so let's turn our view out and see what is going on in the RPG world related to Greyhawk... First up is a new installment of the classic Greyhawk's World articles reinvigorated by Greyhawk Grognard. This time he covers events of the Central Flanaess (...)

  • Migration Underway
    Hey all! Just a quick note that the migration to the www.greyhawkgrognard.com site has begun. New content will be posted there, rather than the Blogger site, going forward. Expect to see changes in the design in the coming days as things get finalized, but I think it's much cleaner and easier (...)

  • Machete Order Follow-Up
    One thing I noticed is that my proposed "Machete Order" for the early Greyhawk modules is that it rather neatly solves a problem that had cropped up in some of my earlier ruminations. To wit, it allows the contents of Lolth's platinum egg to be brought to the Temple of Elemental Evil in order (...)

  • Deven Rue Greyhawk Map
    Hail Greyhawkers! Light blog day for me folks as I'm too busy doing real life work-stuff. Today I'm promoting Vile & Villainous again on the Greyhawk Channel. And also again, I'd like to mention Deven Rue is working on a Greyhawk map. Here is a sneak peak at the prelim sketch. Looks good so (...)

  • Greyhawk Module Machete Order
    A few weeks ago, I puzzled through the chronological sequence of some of the iconic adventure modules of early D&D and the Greyhawk setting; the Giants/Drow/Queen of Spiders series, the Temple of Elemental Evil, and the Slave Lords adventures. Now, looking at the suggested levels for those (...)

  • If only...
    Back in the early 1980's I was a huge fan of the World of Greyhawk Fantasy Setting, and especially of the articles in Dragon magazine by Gary Gygax and Rob Kuntz, which "advanced the timeline" and laid out the goings-on in setting during the two years after the established date of CY 576 for (...)

  • Vile and Villainous
    Hey Greyhawkers! I'm a day late but I'm here to promote the Greyhawk Channel's latest new campaign on Twitch, Vile & Villainous where the players get to be shady characters in the service of the Land of Iuz. This particular show includes my good friend Boshie who is also an entertaining (...)

  • On Divination
    In doing my analyses of various early adventure modules, it strikes me that some of the things that players are expected to figure out are pretty damn impossible. How to know that wearing the robes of the clerics of Tharizdun will protect against the numbing cold of the Black Cyst? How to know (...)

  • Greyhawk's World: Events of the West-Central Flanaess
    Since my first effort at continuing the Greyhawk's World articles was so well-received (and I had so much fun doing it), I thought it only proper to keep going. For those who don't know, Greyhawk's World was a series of articles in Dragon Magazine from the early 80's describing the ongoing (...)

  • Poll Result: Which Monster Should Attack?
    Hey Greyhawkers! Today I'm going over the results of my last poll Which Monster Should Attack Town? This was an easy-going fun poll, not much to do with Greyhawk per se, but we can analyze where these monstrous threats are coming from if you as a DM want to shake up your campaign. Let's go! (...)

  • Thoughts on The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun
    I'm going to take a break from my ongoing delvings into the inner workings of the Giants, Drow, and Temple of Elemental Evil adventures to venture into new territory. I'm going to start picking apart the Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun, and see if there's anything that we might glean from a close (...)

  • More Black Moon Chronicles Maps
    Those of you who've been following my blog for a few years might remember the Black Moon Chronicles, a series of graphic novels by French author François Marcela-Froideval. That name might also sound familiar because he was one of Gary Gygax's cohorts, who did a first draft of Oriental (...)

  • Greyhawk Stuff Online
    Good day Greyhawk fans! I don't have any new content myself this week, but I can surely point you toward a few outlets of Greyhawk fun and information in case you missed it. Ready? Over at Greyhawk Grognard is a great series finishing Kuntz and Gygax's "Greyhawk's World" updates from Dragon (...)

  • Dating Modules - Slavers, Elemental Evil, Giants
    A fun, and sometimes necessary when delving into the deep lore of the published adventures, pastime is to try to figure out when, exactly, a given adventure module takes place. Originally, of course, the early modules such as Steading of the Hill Giant Chief, had no definitive date beyond their (...)

  • Initial Thoughts on Mythic India
    So no sooner do I make a post about the projects that I've got going on at the moment, but I start knocking out the "in progress" stuff almost immediately. Obviously that leaves a hole, and my nature abhors a creative vacuum. I've not committed to it yet, but I'm toying with doing a "mythic (...)

  • Greyhawk Map: Nyr Dyv Ship Wrecks
    Welcome fans of Greyhawk! Nothing new from me this week, but if you are looking for a great gathering of Greyhawk fans look no further than the Flanaess Geographical Society on Facebook. Today I'm promoting cartographer Ronald Calbick and his inspiring Nyr Dyv shipwreck map. All I can say is (...)

  • Return of Mysterious Places From the Fringe
    Howdy Greyhawkers, it's a good day to revisit one of my favorite article segments that I haven't done in a few years, Mysterious Places From the Fringe. It's just a spin on the mysterious places articles from Living Greyhawk back in the day, except I make them up off the cuff based on no canon (...)

  • Irons in the Fire
    I just wanted to give a quick update on the various thingamabobs that I'm working on. Musicland: The Kickstarter campaign was a huge success (and thanks to everyone who supported it!). The manuscript is off to the editor, the cover is done, the interior artist has given me sketches that have (...)

  • Thalos
    Tucked away in one of the corners of the Sundered Empire on the far northwest of Oerik is an island called Thalos. When I did my Beyond the Flanaess series of posts a few years ago, I naturally included it, but recently there's been a request to show the full-size version because someone is (...)

  • Greyhawk Mini Map
    Hey Greyhawkers. Not much going on this week sad to say so let's do an easy post. Here is a map of the Greyhawk domain I threw together a week ago for my campaign. It's using Black Blade Publishing's newest mini hex paper from Gary Con X. I originally posted this on Twitter and it caused some (...)

    The conquest of the Horned Society by Iuz is one of the seminal events of the Greyhawk campaign. It is a It is described in both Gary Gygax's novel Artifact of Evil, as well as the history of the Greyhawk Wars written after Gygax's departure from TSR, after which the setting took a somewhat (...)

    The original plastic castle that was the model for Gary's Castle GreyhawkI had the pleasure of spending this past weekend in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, for my first ever GaryCon.

  • GaryCon 2018 Recap
    Howdy Greyhawkers! Well I'm back early from Gary Con X in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Even though I was only there two days I had the most Greyhawk-y experience yet again. Here's the run down: First, no I didn't see Mike Mearls (two straight years). They must've kept him under lock and key (...)

  • Greyhawk Poll Result: Which Sword Would You Carry
    Hey Greyhawk fans! It's GaryCon week. I hope to see more than a few of the community in Wisconsin. Until then, let's muse over my latest front page poll: Which Sword Would You Carry? That is sentient magical swords. There are many so I kept the list to a handful. Let's get to it: Coming in tied (...)

  • See You At GaryCon!
    Just a reminder - next weekend I'll be at GaryCon for the first time (woo-hoo!). I'll be manning the BRW Games table in the dealer's room, and running sessions of Castle of the Mad Archmage on Friday and Saturday nights (both are sold out, sorry!). Do stop by and say hi, if you're in the (...)

  • The Greyhawk Channel
    Well met Greyhawk fans, today I am once again promoting the live streaming efforts of good friend and showman extraordinaire, DMShane. His Twitch empire is growing faster than Iuz can conquer the north so as a result he has rebranded to The Greyhawk Channel. This channel comprises all his (...)

    Hello Greyhawk fanatics! Today marks my 750th post on Greyhawkery! Wow! So I've been blogging for two editions of D&D now and doing art for three.

  • World of Greyhawk Largest Cities
    Welcome again Greyhawk fans. Today I'm taking a break from otherwise more important projects to discuss a random subject that came to mind while I was reading about the Free City of Greyhawk. In the lands of the Flanaess, Greyhawk is considered the largest single city in population. It's a hub (...)

  • Review: Black Panther (Spoiler Free)
    I just flew back from Wakanda, and boy are my arms tired! Seriously, I saw the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Black Panther, today. The theater was a Dolby theater, with improved sound (think Sensurround, for those old enough to remember it) and a higher contrast film. No 3-D, but there (...)

  • All Marvel Cinematic Universe Titles, Ranked
    Now that we're moving with headlong speed towards the end of Phase Three, and into the unknown maw that is Phase Four, I thought it might be interesting to rank all the various titles that make up the MCU. In this, I am not only including the films, but also the ABC and Netflix television shows (...)

  • Ideas For Greyhawk Maps
    Good day Greyfriends! It's a slow week, but I am heartened by the uptick I've been seeing of Greyhawk community interest online. Whether its because of the token announcement of a Mordenkainen book I don't know, but hopefully the likes of Anna Meyer, Return to Greyhawk, Greyhawk Grognard, (...)

  • My Dream FLGS
    Now that I've pre-ordered Gary Ray's fascinating-looking book Friendly Local Game Store: A Five-Year Path to Middle-Class Income, it's naturally got me thinking about what sort of a game store I'd make if I won the lottery. Naturally, this is just a thought experiment (but we can hope!). One of (...)

  • Greyhawk Monsters in 5E
    Similar to my previous update about which gods were going to be represented in my Players Guide to Greyhawk 576, now that I'm in the home stretch of the DM's Guide, I thought it would be interesting to list out the various critters and creatures that are currently scheduled for inclusion. As (...)

  • Watch Me Do Art on Twitch
    Hey faithful Greyhawkers. I'm gonna try out something new: live streaming art and map making.

Be sure to check me out and (...)

  • Let's Read: Greyhawk Adventures (Part 12)
    Well here we are at last, the final entry in my Let's Read series for the Greyhawk Adventures hardcover book. It's certainly taken a while to get here, but I hope the trip's been worth it. We close the series with what is perhaps the weakest section of the entire book, and the one I believe got (...)

  • Interview: Secrets of Blackmoor
    What a treat today! I had the privilege of interviewing the maker of an upcoming documentary film on the early history of our hobby, focusing on Dave Arneson's Blackmoor, but naturally ranging far beyond that. There have been a few efforts along these lines (I backed a few on Kickstarter...), (...)

    Good morning Greyhawkers! I had to get up extra early to talk about this breaking news already scorching across the internet: In May, D&D is releasing Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes.
