  • Greyhawk Map: The Wastes
    Hail Greyhawkers! Today I have another random mini-Greyhawk map drawn by yours truly! If you want to check out some of my previous quickie maps, go HERE. What you are seeing is the Wastes in the northern reaches of the Flanaess - but you are viewing this desolate region from the Icy Sea which (...)

  • Film Review: Captain Marvel (Spoiler Free)
    I got to see the latest Marvel flick, Captain Marvel, this weekend. I missed opening weekend because of Garycon. I saw it in an almost-filled theater with Dolby, which is my go-to choice because of the reserved seating, but the Read (...)

  • Where Is Saltmarsh?
    Hello Greyhawkers! The title of this post is of course facetious, it's part of the World of Greyhawk. But for a small port first introduced in 1981's U1: Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh, it's surprisingly a house-hold name in popular culture (27th all-time) while at the same time under-appreciated (...)

  • Why Dungeons?
    This is a question that comes up perennially, it seems, especially (but not exclusively) among newer players to the game. They can’t seem to fathom why dungeons exist, and in the sort of realistic-fantasy world they prefer, they simply cannot Read (...)

  • GaryCon Recap
    Last weekend was GaryCon, in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where it all began. If you’ve never been to this con, I cannot recommend it highly enough. There are thousands of gamers, artists, and vendors, all there to pay homage to Read (...)

  • Greyhawk Going on at Gary Con XI
    Greetings Greyhawkers! It's been a wonderful weekend as I just had a small dose of Gary Con XI. Yeah I was only there for barely half of it with my best friend Jayson "Valkaun" King, but I do have a lot to report on the Greyhawk front! Let's go! Getting the big news out of the way first, me and (...)

  • 5E: Which Greyhawk Classics Are Next?
    Hail Greyhawkers! Today I am going to do an in-depth survey of which adventures or classic themes remain for WotC to adapt to 5th Edition. It's been a remarkable run so far for 5E, with Wizards' handling of nostalgia driven storylines and online entertainment. I wonder if they can keep up the (...)

  • Greyhawk’s Culture Level
    As students of European history will know, pre-modern Europe is divided into several different periods, collectively known as the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The beginning of Medieval Europe is called the Early Middle Ages (aka the Dark Age), c. Read (...)

  • Quasi-Deities, Hero-Deities, and Heroes
    One of the original “little brown books” (LBBs) that were published back in the days when all the D&D rulebooks could fit in a little white box, was Gods, Demigods, and Heroes. As the title suggested, it detailed divine beings Read (...)

  • Greyhawk in Dragon+ and Gary Con XI
    Hail friends of Greyhawk. You may or may not have already seen, but the newest issue of Dragon+ (a periodical I have slacked in reading) has a new article that is a must read. Behind the Screen: Greyhawk by John Roy and Luke Gygax is both a nostalgic ride to the early years of Greyhawk and (...)

  • Blitzkrieg in the West
    Today I received a new game in the mail, which I had supported on Kickstarter in March 2018. It was the first effort by Canvas Temple Publishing (they’ve since done three more Kickstarter campaigns), which is a new company founded Read (...)

  • Greyhawk Map: Lordship of the Isles
    Greetings Greyhawk mavens! As we get closer to GaryCon again I am starting to feel anxious to talk Greyhawk. To pass the time, I started drawing mini-maps of sections of the Flanaess, with some clever artistic touches thrown in. I doubt I'll do a whole lot of these, but I'm looking for corners (...)

  • Taxes in Greyhawk
    Greetings Greyhawkers. They say in many parts of the prime material plane, nothing is certain but death and taxes. In the World of Greyhawk setting, death is ever present and at times a literal avatar to fight against. But taxes? This too is all the game, there is no avoiding it humble, heroes. (...)

  • Great Greyhawk Couples
    Happy Valentines Day, Greyhawkers! I don't think there is a Greyhawk equivalent to this holiday unless it's a holy day to Myhriss goddess of love. At any rate, that's a topic for another day. The World of Greyhawk is well known for its mega-dungeons, artifacts and warfare, but is it known for (...)

  • Colorful Places of Greyhawk
    Greetings Greyhawkers! Today I bring you another fun topic on Greyhawk geography. This one follows suit with the post I did on "Cold Places" in the Flanaess. This time let's look at the colorful places found in the World of Greyhawk. In our world there is plenty of colorfully named locations (...)

  • Castle Greyhawk Finale
    Greetings Greyhawkers! This week I am proud to announce that Scott Casper and I have reached the conclusion of our long running Castle Greyhawk comic. It's been several years and over 160+ pages of amazing story and art. When we started this comic back in 2012, Scott had already written a (...)

  • 5E: More Greyhawk Wars Magic Items
    Last time I featured three unique magic items named in the 2nd edition era board game Greyhawk Wars, but were never found in any other supplement before or after. Today we look at the last three of this set as I try to convert them to 5E rules using the spirit of the board game descriptions. (...)

  • 5E: Greyhawk Wars Magic Items
    Good day Greyhawkers! I am here to present some interestingly original Greyhawk magic items that I have converted to 5E rules (since this is the current edition I run).

    Greetings Greyhawkers! Some of you may have already seen this beautiful piece of art on one of many Greyhawk Facebook groups already, but I'm spreading the love as best as I can! I get quite excited when creators do Greyhawk fan work. Most of the time it might be an article or map, but every so (...)

  • Greyhawk Justice
    Well met Greyhawkers! It's interesting to me that since I dual-classed away from 20th level innkeeper to last year become a 1st level minion for the Guild of Lawyers and Scribes, that I know way more about our criminal code than back when I was a young gamer putting my friends through hell by (...)

  • Which Greyhawk Modules To Run?
    Okay Greyhawkers, quick random topic because it's a weekend and I haven't got a broader topic until me and Anna Meyer return to Legends & Lore in February. "Which modules have I never ran that I would love to someday?" Go ahead and shoot down these five choices, but everyone's tastes are (...)

    I have a hankering to run a game of (email) Diplomacy next year. Anyone interested? Email greyhawkgrognard@gmail.com if so with the words “Diplomacy 2019” in the subject (no quotes). If I can get seven players, I’ll happily serve as moderator Read (...)

  • Film Review: Bumblebee (Spoiler Free)
    I saw Bumblebee yesterday in a regular theater (no 3D, no IMAX, etc.) which was mostly full (not bad for 3:30 in the afternoon). Short version; I loved it, and it gave me everything I’ve wanted in a live-action Transformers Read (...)

  • Film Review: Aquaman (Spoiler Free)
    The family and I saw Aquaman tonight. We saw it in IMAX in a mostly-filled theater (with, unfortunately, a chatterbox toddler right behind me). I normally don't do IMAX, but in this case I read that the movie was filmed Read (...)

    It's almost the end of the year, which means it's time for me to look over my Needfest bounty of Greyhawk gifts and offer some thanks...

  • AD&D's mini-games
    I've long maintained that one of the best things about AD&D 1st edition is its modularity (and it should be noted that most of what I'm about to say also, or even especially, applies to the original D&D booklets — Read (...)

    Cold Iron Avail You, Greyhawk fans! It's fast approaching that time of year, yes that's right, Needfest. Today I'm going to do an easy, fun post to coincide with my show with Anna Meyer on the Greyhawk Channel, Legends & Lore. If you haven't seen the show, we sit around and riff on all (...)

    Greetings fellow Greyhawkers! In the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving by saying what we are grateful to have.

  • RIP Stan Lee and Carl Sargent
    Sad news today Greyhawkers. First and foremost is the passing of the man, Stan Lee at age 95. No link is needed here, his death was immediately felt around the world.

  • Greyhawk: Rhennee Population
    Greeting Greyhawk fanatics. Today I'm going to take a wild stab at an esoteric topic I bet no one except perhaps Gary Gygax, Anne Brown and Lance Hawvermale have ever pondered: how many Rhennee are there in the Flanaess? Before I get into my boring research, a few caveats, one, I'm no expert on (...)

  • A Bunch of Greyhawk Vampires
    Happy Halloween, Greyhawk creatures! Today I feel in the mood to highlight some evil undead from the World of Greyhawk setting, specifically vampires. Undead run rampant in Greyhawk. It's full of death knights, liches, animi and so on. What Greyhawk has a surprising lack of is vampires. That is (...)

  • Drow, Lolth, and religion
    I've been thinking about the relationship between Lolth and the drow. While it has become pretty much accepted across the board that the drow are invariably worshipers of the spider-demon Lolth, I think what's often forgotten is that it wasn't Read (...)

  • We're All Fascists Now

  • Greyhawk Channel: Sea of Dust Redux
    Hail Greyhawkers! Today I'm reposting some old Greyhawkery stuff I did on the Sea of Dust, a topic I recently covered with Anna Meyer and our loyal viewers, on the Greyhawk Channel show, Legends and Lore.
