    The next of the "Introduction" series I intend to write will be on the Gods... sometime soon, I hope. :)

    There are a few major events that would be worth covering as well - thanks for reminding me ...

    It might not end up being used in my version of Greyhawk, but I really like this depiction of devils & demons.

    The APs don't really feel like Greyhawk to me, though I really like them. There are some things that are Greyhawk-like, and others that come from somewhere else entirely.

    the only reference in Savage Tide to "core" Greyhawk is Tamoachan - and that's hardly core Greyhawk! (Classic module, yes, but it's on the fringes of the known world).

    Well, it had Iggwilv.

    I allow PCs to turn in evil items to good churches for destruction. They receive a bounty equal to what they would get if it were sold.

    If I may ask, when was Rao installed as the official god of Veluna? It's always seemed to be a strange placement to me.

    Who would you include?
