One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
I don't think they even happen on anything recognizable as Oerth. The local city is called New Koratia. There was an article on the Wizards of the Coast website at the time detailing the land in which those novels took place. You can see it archived here.
The city of Koratia was established at the mouth of the River Delnir some eight hundred years ago on the southwestern frontier of the Kingdom of Soes...
I'm pretty sure novels that take place in something called the Kingdom of Soes have nothing to do with Greyhawk.
I didn't read any of the novels, so no, but there are a few references to the generic 3e novels in 3e-era Dungeon Magazines. Nothing that fits specifically on Oerth, but Dungeon #84's "Dungeon of the Fire Opal" is linked vaguely to the Suss Forest, and it had an order of evil monks in it, so the Wild Coast and Greyhawk City region might work.
One of the early 3e Dragon Magazines that I was looking through the other day included an article by Bruce Cordell detailing the order of Nerull-worshiping monks in game terms. Again, no specific mentions of Greyhawk geography.
Johnny Wilson had an adventure call "Provincial Prior Cause" in Dungeon #96, which was presented as a lead-in to the events of "TH Lain"'s novel, The Bloody Eye. IIRC, King Ingemar of the Schnai & Ratik are mentioned, but the background is totally out of character for GH. Ingemar is presented as analogous to one of the French kings during the Crusades (Philip, I think), & the organization in the module, the Soldiers of the Sun, is very Knights Templarish. Wilson could've picked far better locations in GH to make his analogies than the Barbarian North, IMO.
