    Hello from Blackmoor

    Thought I might be polite and introduce myself. I am Havard. My main hangout is the Piazza, but I like posting at other forums as well. I am from Norway and my main passion is Blackmoor, and Mystara. I am still a n00b when it comes to Greyhawk, so I hope you will all be patient with me if I ask stupid questions. :)

    Rossik:
    Hello my friend! :) Thanks for the complement!

    SirXaris:
    Thanks for the welcome!
    I don't know how common this is, but in my original group we had a rule that everyone had to DM, and each DM had to have his own campaign setting. Since we started off with BECMI, one guy ran Mystara. Another ran Dragonlance, and a third ran the Forgotten Realms etc. I was one of the younger guys in the group at the time and I remember a conversation we were having where I said maybe I would choose Greyhawk when I stared DMing. Everyone thought it was a good idea, even though none of us knew anything about the setting at the time.

    Things didnt go as planned and I ended up taking over the Mystara campaign instead. This is not something I regret as I love that setting to death, but sometimes I wonder what may have been. I guess it is time to explore that now :)

    havard, i had a similar experience

    since the "d&d fever" started here in brazil with 2ed AD&D, we had more options of campaign settings:

    i DMed Dragonlance, one guy Dark Sun and PLanescape, other Forgotten Realms and the last one Ravenloft.

    i never had a chance do play Mystara, but i DM Thunder rift (and i put it in Mystara :D)

    Welcome to Canonfire! Havard, glad you're here. Happy

    Canonfire! is Greyhawk specific, though we do have forums where one can talk about "Off Topics" and such. I'm sure that you'll quickly "find your way around" here.

    We're all looking forward to your participation in our discussions and your "fanon" contributions to the site.

    Don't forget to check out the Greyhawk Wiki. The link is in the top right hand corner of the Front (Home) Page. As the name suggest, "our" wiki is Greyhawk specific and there are hundreds of pages of good information in there.

    So, stick around and we'll soon get to know you and you us.

    Again, welcome to Canonfire! Cool

    I have always enjoyed playing and experiences as many different settings as possible. When I DM, I also try to emphasize on what makes that setting unique so that the players will get a different experience from each campaign.

    BTW: If you have played TR set in Mystara, then I say you have played in Mystara ;)
