  • GenCon Stuff I Missed
    Heya Greyhawkers! I didn't go to GenCon and after seeing news on ENWorld, I'm really regretting seeing the GenCon50 Museum. I had no idea it was going to have this many old school artifacts on display. I already saw alot of the art on display at Garycon earlier this year, but the museum they (...)

  • Mortellan Interview on the RPG Academy
    Hey Greyhawk fans and RPG players alike! I may not be at GenCon this year but I do have something exciting to show everybody! I recently did a podcast interview for The RPG Academy's "Show & Tell" feature. You can now listen to me ramble on about Greyhawk, Canonfire, Greyhawkery, art and (...)

  • GenCon 50 and Gamerstable Returns
    Ahoy Greyfolk! Sadly this week is Gen Con 50 week and while I've known for a while I wasn't going (sold out of 4-day badges!) and I further don't feel I'll miss anything epic, it still kind of makes me feel glum to not be among the gamer crowds like I've done for the last decade. On the bright (...)

  • Heironeous "the Invincible"
    In yesterday's article about the evolution of how gods and clerics were treated in various editions, I used the Greyhawk deity Heironeous as an example, and promised a 5E treatment of him. And thus today's article. To recap, the various editions waxed and waned with special powers, spells, and (...)

  • Deity Evolution in D&D (and a brilliant idea for 5th edition!)
    Deities have always held a weird sort of spot in D&D. On the one hand, since the veritable beginning of the game, they were pretty much treated like monsters. The Gods, Demigods, and Heroes supplement for the LBB version of the game basically treats them like more powerful demons. Ares is a (...)

  • Greyhawk Poll: Best Defended City
    Welcome back friends of Greyhawk! Today I examine the results of my latest poll, Which City is Best Defended?

  • A Tale of Great Customer Service
    About two weeks ago, I noticed something strange about my 5th Edition Player's Handbook. The pages were coming out of the book. That is, the glue that connected them to the spine of the book seemed to be losing its strength, and whole chunks of pages were coming loose. Naturally, this makes the (...)

  • Greyhawk Comic Rewind: Magic Swords
    Well met Greyfriends, here's a couple classic comics of mine from 2007 concerning the hero-deity of swords, Kelanen. A hell of a lot of research went into these. Good lore. Enjoy! June 7th, 2007: This week we check in on the ever-popular Prince of Swords, Kelanen. To put it bluntly, Kelanen is (...)

  • More on Eclavdra's Motives
    Recently I've been going through some of the motives for the machinations at the heart of the Giants/Drow modules (originally G1-3, D1-3, and Q1, republished as GDQ1-7). A correspondent had asked something about my analysis, and that prompted me to look at the primary sources, and I noticed (...)

  • The Sundered Empire
    Many moons ago, WotC published a remake of Chainmail, the venerable antecedent of D&D, as a modern miniatures wargame with several factions fighting for control of the panoply of the dead god of war. The setting for the game was called The Sundered Empire, and was deemed canonically to be (...)

  • Ten Places in Greyhawk
    It's been a slow week Greyhawk-wise. Let's try a random list of 10 Places in Greyhawk I've Never Used. (In a campaign that is; mind you I've been playing Greyhawk for 35 years so I've had plenty of opportunities.) A couple caveats, one I'm not talking "Beyond the Flanaess" or any (...)

  • Cthulhu Wars: Reviews and How to Play Videos
    Now that the Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 3 Kickstarter is on its malevolent way (and met its goal within an hour or two of launching!), I thought it might be interesting to show off the game itself, with a few videos from various folks. First, we have a short and sweet "how to play" video from the (...)

  • Game Industry Interview: Ed Healy
    When Cthulhu Wars from Peterson Games first Kickstarted a few years ago, I was all over it. Not only is it a fun strategy board game in and of itself, but it's got a theme I really enjoy (Lovecraft), and the figures are absolutely amazing (and conveniently work with 25/28mm scale figures - more (...)

  • Lolth in "Vault of the Drow"
    Over on the G+ Greyhawk group, William Tiller asked a great question. I was going to answer there, but it got a little long, so I figured I'd post it here. He asked: Why are the PCs going after Lolth? I know why they go after Eclavdra- she is trying to take over the surface world. But as far I (...)

  • Greyhawk Initiative?
    Some of you old school gamers who follow D&D news or social media probably have heard about the latest Unearthed Arcana document by head honcho Mike Mearls. The new idea that he's floated about is called "Greyhawk Initative" a variant system of tracking combat for 5E that he introduced at (...)

  • Lovecraft in Greyhawk
    The very early history of Gary Gygax's World of Greyhawk Fantasy Setting had more than a few mentions of H.P. Lovecraft's "Cthulhu Mythos." Michael Falconer put the problem neatly on the (now-defunct) Pied Piper Publishing message boards: Surely some influences [of fantasy literature] are (...)

  • Review: Spider-Man Homecoming (spoiler free)
    I just got back from seeing Spider-Man Homecoming. The theater was almost full, and I saw the regular digital version (no 3D, no IMAX). Short version; this is one of the best MCU films to date. It's perfect. The new MCU version of Spider-Man was introduced in last year's Captain America Civil (...)

  • The Suel Migration into Zindia
    I've long had an idea in the back of my mind that the Suel might just have played a role in Oerth similar to that which the Aryan tribes played in Indian history. Inspired by this article in The Hindu and this opposing one at Swarajaya, I thought it might be a good opportunity to flesh out the (...)

  • GenCon 2017
    Quiet week at Greyhawkery. Hey it looks like I won't be going to GenCon this year. If I do it'll be for one night and very last minute planned.

  • The Egg and I
    Returning to one of my favorite subjects -- the Temple of Elemental Evil, Elder Elemental God, etc. -- I wanted to explore a bit of Greyhawkiana that is at once both obvious on the surface, but pregnant with possibilities once one delves just a little deeper. I speak of the platinum egg that (...)

    Well met, Greyhawkers! Today I'm sharing a map I did a month ago featuring Ulakand, the capital of Ull in the Baklunish West. Anyone who knows me, knows I am the #1 source of fan-made Ull material. I adopted little undeveloped, unwanted Ull back in 2004 by doing several articles for Canonfire. (...)

    I find myself in need of an artist for a project that's coming up. However, this is not like most of my art requests, which are b&w line art. For this, I need a full face (no background) that's full color, computer generated. I will need several minor iterations of a basic image, to reflect (...)

    It's big, but is it mega?There's been a lot of chatter in my own little corner of the OSR web lately about megadungeons, and this is a thing that I both enjoy and encourage.
