PostForum: World of Greyhawk Discussion   Posted: Thu Dec 05, 2019 8:27 pm   Subject: Absurdity, zaniness, puns, and other funny stuff

Drelnza is the product of Iggwilv and Lerrek the lich, not Dahvlier. Lerrek is a high-level priest of Erythnul residing in Delvenbrass, I think (or some such other location in the Vesve). I believe ...

I really just meant that spells like fireball take the place of cannonfire.

Your treatment of Drelnza sparked a memory (don't recall the source) that she may be the daughter of Iggwilv and Dahlvier, a lich in the northwestern Vesve. This inspired me to see a possible plot wh ...
