    Tales of the City of the Gods

    Wow. CSL you hit on a good subject here, tying all three elements iconic to Blackmoor together (Blackmoor is a fave of mine). What is more with the fictional campsite dialogue that you present the information, I felt just as interested in the characters and why they might be in Blackmoor as the tales themselves! You've painted a rather unique group and I wouldn't mind seeing them used again. What I will never grow tired of is how Blackmoor is Greyhawk's most mysterious of places. Through the editions and articles no two authors will come up with the same answers to its questions. CSL's legends are just another glowing example of that region's draw on our imagination.

    Thanks a lot, Mortellan! I'm especially proud of this article and the way all the themes tie together, especially with the broken chaos that's at the heart of the Egg of Coot. I didn't do any canon research for this article, since I loathe the whole technology angle of Blackmoor, and took steps to remove it, as you can see.

    I'm also glad you liked the party of adventurers I put together for the campfire dialogue. These characters are very close to my heart, and while I consider them D&D-type characters, I especially want them to come across as more than the two-dimensional characters so often associated with role-playing novels. Ideally, I'd like to give them complicated personalities, backstories and odd personal quirks, as I've tried to do with the various rulers of the Flanaess in the Living Greyhawk Gazeteer Addendum articles.
