Can anyone tell me the sources for this event. I thought it was originally from one of the Greyhawk articles by Gary Gygax or Rob Kuntz, but I seem to be missing it? Also, was it it ever expanded upon in other sources?

If I recall correctly, Osson (correct spelling here) was an Almoran commander who led a large raiding party (really a small army) into the Great Kingdom, wreaking havoc for an extended period of time. I think his force was eventually cornered in Medegia, wiped out, and Osson himself taken back to Rauxes to endure the Endless Death. Some of that might be off (brain cobwebs, and all that). Confused

Consulting the indispensable Encyclopedia Greyhawkania 2003 (there are not enough thank you's to give to Jason Zavoda for compiling this), which you may find here: http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog/encyclopedia-2003-08-31.txt), we get...

Osson (Commander)[NPC]
DRG#206 Pg# - 44
FTAA Pg# - 7,27,39,47
GW:ADV Pg# - 1,13,14,15,19,20,22,28,32
IVID
TSB Pg# - 5
WGR4 Pg# - 84

If you have those sources, you are set. If not, there is this thread with much of the information you seek: http://www.canonfire.com/cf//modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=365

Check out the Greyhawk "Wars" boxed set. It goes over details of the Wars, start to finish. Osson is also mentioned as some length.
