    But, considering the size of the place, nobody is going to attack City of Greyhawk.

    Certainly not in an all-out assault, but don't forget, in the real world, the Rus launched several raids against ...

    Each of the Star Cairns has a dolmen-like entrance but, being Suel in origin, I guess these would be considered mock-dolmens. Although they are constructed along leylines, the look & feel is a sty ...

    Yeah, I think we're meant to assume that Liga appears the same size in Oerth's sky as Earth's sun appears from Earth, and somebody just didn't do the math.

    I have to agree. I've been plugging some ...

    The above all relates to Luna, I should have mentioned. For Celene they would be very much rarer. And to get both moons eclipsing at the same time. Well...

    I think making them rarer is more interesting.

    Well, that's a request that's easy enough to oblige. Going back to Oerth Journal #3, Roger Moore states the circumference of Oerth as roughly 25,200 ...

    The only canon note on eclipses appears in TAB under the description of the festivals.

    Do we regard Spelljammer as canon? If so then in Greyspace it states that Luna & Celene are both in the ...

    There is some Druidy stuff in the back story for "The Standing Stone". It is non-specific in location but I have put it in the Suss Forest & some of the description in the module suits this.

    It might be awkward if you look at it from that perspective but, speaking as a wargamer, it doesn't seem so strange to me. In fantasy wargames campaigns (well, the ones I've played in at least) it is ...

    I think there's precedent for restricting electrum pieces to ancient ruins and antique vaults if you prefer the 'realism' of that.



    Slightly at a tangent but ancient coinage is one of my fav ...

    My Greyhawk is quite a grim, low money, low magic place but I find that the odd bit of well-placed silliness helps to lighten the mood & stop it from just being a grind.

    For inspiration, check out the movie Kung Fu Hustle, where the big bad uses 'toad style' martial arts. A perfect template for Wastri.
