    Bah! Hum bug! It's a myth! Shocked

    The Oerth Journal is a long forgotten, legendary document that was once used to interpret and understand the Codex of the Infinite Planes. Idea

    But it's been lost for all time, consumed by the fires of Smaug, its ashes scattered to the four winds. Sad

    Right? Right Question Confused

    Fantastic!

    It is so good to see this. Happy Looks fantastic! Will give this a read. Maybe a snippet of my Grey-down-under, an underworld setting in Greyhawk might be ready for the next Journal?

    Long Live Greyhawk!

    Thanks a lot

    A very big thank you to all concerned in producing this. I really enjoy the magazine format. It would be great if we could get even more contributing authors. I've been meaning to submit something for ages.

    It was a fun issue... Does anyone have anything they would like to see in the next one. Speak now or have whatever I am working inflicted upon you... :)

    By the bye, I have asked Dennis also...

    Reading this for the first time I was impressed by the content, and the art style. Seeing the races in "color" helps me visualize better, especially the people in my group who I DM in greyhawk who haven't seen material on the subject will appreciate this.

    Currently i'm playing DnD in the 5 edition. It's loaded with random tables some Greyhawk themed ones would be nice. Other than that.... Bios of the Rich and Famous, Ecologies of Flail Snails, Norker's Migration Patterns. A module for beginners in a setting that hasn't been covered, new maps. This stuff I assume is half canon and half fan fiction so I don't know what your willing to partake in and what degree?

    (joking about the norkers and snails but you never know!)

    Some errata I noticed.

    In the Baklunish section, the Elemental Focus feat reproduces the text from Saddle Born. Assuming it's the same feat that was in Dragon #319, it should say:

    "The Baklunish folk have always enjoyed a close relationship with the elements, and your skill with elemental spells continues a tradition that dates back hundreds of years before the Invoked Devastation.
    Benefit: Add +1 to the Difficulty Class of all saving throws against spells you cast with the air, earth, fire, or water descriptors. This bonus stacks with the similar bonuses granted by the Spell Focus and Greater Spell Focus feats.


    In the Rhennee section, there are two feats named Water Walker, the one that gives a bonus with boating and weather, and the one that rejuvenates you in water.

    Ceb,

    Sent you the full edited file. No white space on page 30 it includes a poem by a Rhen Bard. Thanks to Artimage I realized its not edited correctly. Forget the file it still needs to be updated.

    Artimage,

    The Rhennee article the second water walker feat should be known as the waters of life.

    Please note none of the feats should mimic anything in published form.

    Later

    I am so grateful for the time and effort put into this. I never cease to be amazed at the creativity of the Greyhawk community. I was so moved that I evolved from persistent lurker to first-time poster. Laughing

    Thanks again!

    I admit, I had never looked at Oerth Journal since joining this site. Perfectly content was I to muddle about IMC with just the boxed set and a few old modules.

    Then I perused #27, and everything has changed.

    I immediately downloaded the previous 26 issues and have devoured my way through #7, which is my favorite so far. (The idea of selling Otiluke's house in the Free City of Greyhawk, after his demise, just tickled my funnybone)

    Nearly 1000 pages of high quality Greyhawk related work is astounding to me, and all done as a labor of love, not for pay.

    Salute!

    I got the file before the recently updated one (May 10th) and just downloaded the one posted on the 12th. I noticed a fair bit of proofreading could have helped, but the large majority of things I saw were the same errors repeated over and over (a lot of misuses of the apostrophe for one).

    That said, the actual content was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the articles on the races of the Flanaess. Really, I can't think of an article in this that I didn't like.

    If I were wearing a hat right now, I would tip it to everyone involved.

    Look in the Downloads section for OJ #26.

    Also, there will be another update for the OJ #27 file, though this is a formatting update so far as I know. I have been holding off putting it up just in case somebody chooses to do some additional text editing.
