    You know, their printing of a new edition doesn't mean you actually have to use it...

    Lol thanks for the words of wisdom. I do actually prefer 4e in many ways. I don't like the new magic items - I like the mechanic limiting their usage but not the items themselves - they're too cookie cutter.

    I much prefer 4e monster generation rules. I lamet the monster fluff but there is no reason why I can't use my 1e and 2e monstrous compendiums to pad out the 4e stats.

    As for everything else, the only players who grumble a bit about 4e are the cleric - who was very powerful and versatile inder 3e and the multiclass wizard who hasn't got round to playing yet - I playtested his character and he rocked so I expect he'll be ok when he does play.

    The problem with 5e may just end up being that the online tools for 4e will evaporate when 5e comes out. As long as I can cope with that, I think I will stick with 4e for a while yet. Denha Deloran will rule mwaa haa haa (cough). That would never have happened under 3e.

    I once used conjoined beholder twins in an adventure. They looked like a giant hourglass with eyestalks on both ends.

    One of my favorite monsters I used was invisible. The party was thrashing around trying to find what was attacking them and then finally managed to dispel the invisibility....

    It was a Medusa.

    I played a 2e dwarven Fighter/Cleric named Borin Hammerhelm in as one shot that took place in the orc over run southern wild coast a few weeks back, but I hardly ever get to play anymore.

    Can't remember his name but my last character in GH was back in 2e. He was a half-hobgoblin who had been raised among humans and become a fighter/magic-user (We were def houseruling). While playing through Keep on the Borderlands (Located near the Dreadwood in my DM's campaign) he found out that his father was the hobgoblin chief in the Caves of Chaos and "went native." It was like Reverse Dungeon before that came out. Adventuring was leading raids against the local human homesteads and caravans going to the Keep, until agents of Iuz killed my father for a powerful magic item that he had found and I was on the trail for revenge. never finished that campaign arc.

    Most of the time in GH I was DMing.

    There aren't enough halflings around here, so...

    I give you Dindil, a halfling fighter/thief I played for a short time several years ago. He was a complete sociopath, but had a soft spot for children and others who suffered at the hands of oppressors. Long before WotC created the Whisperknife prestige class, Dindil was sneaking into windows and cutting the throats of anybody who crossed him. Anyone who called him a "runt", "shorty", or otherwise insulted him would receive a blank, innocent stare and an obsequious, "Thank you, sir, I suppose I am a little too small and weak for that kind of thing," and later would find themselves with a poisoned dagger in the chest. It was great fun. My DM at the time - a sociopathic jerk himself - got Dindil into all sorts of trouble by "allowing" him to witness all sorts of abuses, which of course Dindil had to avenge.

    But then he got himself locked in a room with all those trolls.... (*sniff*)

    I got to DM my version of Castle Greyhawk back in June, at the inaugural North Texas RPG Con in Benton, TX (DFW area), but our current campaign is set in the JG Wilderlands, so I'm not playing in GH atm. (And, in fact when I take over the DMing reigns in the not-too-distant future, I'll be running S4 in the WL, since that's the group's main campaign atm).

    The really humorous part to me is that when I read it, I pronounced Petefour in my head as "petty-four". ... and that's a completely different thing altogether.
    petit four (also Petitfore): noun [pet-ee fawr, fohr; Fr. puh-tee foor], plural petits fours

      A small, square-cut, frosted and decorated piece of pound cake or sponge cake.
    Now, it's a coincidence, I am certain, but, it just makes it all the more hilarious to me.

    I am currently playing in a Yahoo Greyhawk Group, 2nd edition, in The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh - we are having some good fun! My character is: Nadia Davrahtai, a half-elven female ranger; species enemy: gnolls.

    My oldest GH character is probably a halfling thief named Arnilion. He was part of a group of "evil" characters that our DM ran through a mixture of published modules (D series) and his own take on Oerth - as I recall we did a lot of adventuring in the Pomarj and the Hellfurnaces. I think he was around 13th level when we retired the game - that was back in college in the 80's so my memory is a bit sketchy. Cool

    I am all set to DM my first Greyhawk campaign - The Temple of Elemental Evil - starting next weekend via email. As someone lamented, it does take a long time, but I've found that with my schedule and the schedule of my old gaming buddies scattered throughout the nation, email works best. This will be a 2nd edition game and just about all of us (one player prefers 3.5) are excited about it.

    And I'd like to thank Maldin for his great webpage - probably helped rekindle the flame to get back into Greyhawk a few years ago. Wink
