    Exag, info needed

    Hey all I was wondering about the City of Exag in Perrenland. I forget where exactly, however I think it was in the WoG comic linked on this site, that it was mentioned some ancient architects or some strange race that pre-dates the Flann or something built it?

    Could anyone please fill me in on this? Maybe it is a joke, but it caught my attention for sure.

    "Exag: City of Clay", in Dungeon #145.

    Yep, it's not quite clear who built it, but it wasn't the Flan. In addition to the source above, you may want to check out the books by...(I can't believe I'm about to say this)...Rose Estes. I can't recall exactly, but I think the second one has a little info on Exag.

    Check out The Mystery of Exag by Erik Mona, on this website. The Dungeon article was inspired by it.

    The Rose Estes version was pretty different.

    Yup, the Dungeon article and the Mona download is what I based my Exag comic stuff on. The 'Crafters' is the race who built the town and my best guess would be they are extra-planar in origin giving you many many options if you want them to leave behind evidence or even return.

    Awesome, and thank you all for the timely replies.

    I never knew this about Exag, and the Gazeteers never mentioned this about it. So was kind of blown away by the reference.

    I have always heard of the Rose Estes novels, but never read them. I have seen a lot of posters being ... hesitant (?) at best in recommending them. Are they cannon material or just something that just happened to be set in WoG?

    THank you also for the link to Erics site on this. I have read a lot of Erics stuff and really like it. So I am looking forward to the article.

    The Estes novels are terrible, and very, very far from canon. That's why I was so hesitant to recommend them.
