    Cyndor, that's a rare choice. Why him if I may ask?

    Because Cyndor was the intermediate deity before there was an intermediate deity category. Because he's an enigma that doesn't fit in with any pantheon. He's the outsider with all the answers that only time can reveal. If the Crisis of Infinite Earths ever came to Greyhawk, Cyndor would be Monitor.

    Would all the shadows then look like Yak-Men...?

    The Monitor, intriguing correlation. And by that line of reasoning if he were in Marvel, I'd say Cyndor is Uatu the Watcher.

    Then again I like to use him as Mr. Peabody.

    Very nice Mort. Happy

    I like the inclusion of the FR stuff. I think a Goddess of Dreams will need to be found among the Elven Pantheon. But that's just my opinion. Cool

    And Tharizdun definitely dreamed Ravenloft. Only he could. Evil Grin

    Seriously, though, I can see Wee Jas as the winner.

    I dunno about Ravenloft, though... given that it seems that Ravenloft is more-or-less a realm that's like "The Village" from the old "Prisoner" TV series, but for the baddest of the bad (Strahd, Lord Soth [expecting flak for mentioning...], etc. ...) and there seems tro be a structured reason for its existence, I don't see a totally random and chaotic god like Tharizdun creating that.

    Tharizdun isn't totally random and chaotic. He's neutral evil. The idea that his dreams might subconsciously pull other evil beings toward him and torment good ones doesn't sound too far off.

    As for the good goddess of dreams, I've mentioned it before in chat (though I think Mystic was the only one awake). I direct you to Sehanine Moonbow. Humans could worship her under the name Celene, personifying the aquamarine moon. Ehlonna, of course, takes care of Luna in her Artemis-like aspect, with her unicorn horn and bow representing a silver lunar crescent.

    Gah, yeah should've figured it would come down to a demihuman. Celene-Sehanine is good. I still don't understand how Sehanine infiltrated GH in the first place. Isn't she a FR creation?

    As to humans, the Touv have 'Vara' evil goddess of nightmares. Yay, thanks Scarlet Brotherhood, yet another aspect of Incabulos I guess. Mad

    From WoG273b, referring to the runes on the Bronze Doors in the Temple of Elemental Evil -

    "6. I haven't taken the time to translate the runes on the Bronze Doors, but I'd be keen to hear from anyone who has done so."

    Here's what I worked out. Some runes appear different in different sources and I've noted these.

    Line 1 - Regeneration / Holy (’80 WoG Gazetteer) / Warning
    Line 2 - Good (’80 WoG Gazetteer) or Demoniac (’83 WoG Guide) This rune is most likely Good rather than Demoniac, since the others conform to the runes given in the '80 WoG Gazetteer.
    Line 3 - Private / Thrall, Prisoner / Fire? (’80 WoG Gazetteer) / Sulfur, Infernal / Key
    Line 4 - Death
    Line 5 - Opposition, Opposed / Demoniac (’80 WoG Gazetteer) / Evil / Evil
    Line 6 - Possession
    Line 7 - Danger, Deadly / Darkness / Insanity / Insanity / Insanity (’80 WoG Gazetteer) / Earth (’80 WoG Gazetteer)
    Line 8 - Unknown (appears as an ankh) / Warning / Holy (’80 WoG Gazetteer)

    Second, I guess I'll have to check out Ghost Tower, since I never actually got to play it. Wink

    Another excellent job, Mort! I just love your work and appreciate your wonderful efforts on behalf of us all, but especially on behalf of the continued life of Greyhawk. Cool Happy

    Hilarious! And I thought I was the only person in the world who remembered the quazar dragon.

    (Incidentally, I have actually used the quazar dragon in my game, as a means of getting rid of a certain annoying rules lawyer. And I ran the accompanying "Nogard" adventure for him once, too, since it didn't work!)

    (Also without looking it up but) I would think that detect invisible would show things that were naturally difficult to see, even if not using magic.

    For example, I am currently reading return to the tomb of horrors, and it mentions that the vampires in gaseous form in the fog may be seen with a detect invisible, even though they are not actually invisible. Gaseous form is an "innate ability" and would not be detectable as magic, I suppose.

    "A thief slinging a gem from the crypt will cause 1 damage per 10,000gp value, shattering the gem in the process. (Oh that Gygax is a sly DM)"

    Too sly for my tastes in this case, which is my overall impression of both 1E and 2E Tomb of Horrors.

    It is great that the gems can damage him, but how are the PC's supposed to know this? To me, it is not the mark of a "superior player" that they can use a strategy for which there is no in-game reason supplied - it just means they used out-of-game knowledge...

    KRAKA-BOOM!


    Just to correct the following in the comments, Mort:

    "The Warden of course the crashed space ship from Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. It is an homage to the lost colony ship from the fantastic scifi RPG Metamorphosis Alpha by James Ward. "

    The ship in S3 is NOT the Warden, according to an interview with Gygax in Oerth Journal #12 (pages 8-9). Jim Ward says the same thing here: http://www.dragonsfoot.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11179&start=502

    Wow! That was a close one, Mort. I see his plan is to sneek out in the dimunitive Ii-nedraw. Handy thing to keep tucked behind your ear.

    Now might be a good time to bring out this old jingle:

    Well hell. I'd settle for even a portion of the Warden, since the ship in Meta Alpha is rather humongous in scale(More fitting for Arneson's City of the Gods IMO). It would be ridiculous to say they aren't related at all however, cause I'd call shenanigans for such hindsight 30 years after the fact.

    Speculation on the identity of the two cultists

    So, mort, do we have enough clues now to figure out who the cultists of Tharizdun are, or should we wait for more comics to come out? :-)

    Aren't they just human cultists in ceremonial robes? If they turned out to be Erythnul and Incabulos in disguises, it would be very weird.

    Last night in the chat, mort hinted at a puzzle regarding their identities. I think they're established NPCs or even deities, and he says he's left clues in the comics about who they are.

    Correct Celeste. Through careful re-reading of the comic and location of various visual and textual clues which I will later leak, you can deduce the answer. Also, you can eliminate certain characters based on them appearing with the cultists, such as Erythnul who was with other evil gods trying to kill the cultists a couple episodes ago.

    If I had to guess, I'd say Ralishaz is one of 'em, and possibly Vecna, but those are just guesses based on their portfolios...

    Thanks Mystic! It still needs a bit of tweaking. My playtest was a bit wonky, but then again I ran it 1st edition and I hadn't done that system in AGES. Given time I would've liked to add pregenerated victims-er, characters and some illustrations. Eh.

    Werewolves, Ehlonna and Obad-Hai, I know that theme. http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=936

    I am sure it is in bad taste to comare artists. Maybe it is just cuz I recently read something similar in Order of the Stick, http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0742.html (“I wouldn’t call him a dwarf, but there will definitely be some spelunking involved.”), but, I can’t help but mention that the last panel was ripe for having Ronald Regan make some double entendre salamander/fire giant joke. Amusing even if I cannot come up with the puchline.

    From left to right: Bahamut, Moradin, Corellon, Pelor, Rao, Kord, Pholtus, Quetzalcoatl, Yondalla.

    And the identity of the "smart" cultist is pretty obvious at this point, I think.

    I wanted to use Quetz real bad, but he is LN according to the Greywiki. I couldn't find a single 'good' Olman god in fact! So, yeah that's a Touv unfortunately.

    He's LN in the original Deities & Demigods, and The Scarlet Brotherhood took alignments and detail straight from there. He's LG in 2e Legends & Lore, though. I thought I saw quetzal feathers peeking out of his hood.

    There are good Aztec deities, but they don't get mentioned in Greyhawk sources.

    Yup. All is good. I'm winding down on the comic however as they are getting harder to muster than in my heyday. Sometimes I have a creative spurt but other weeks I'm just braindead. To that end, I'm limping forward with #300 in my sights.

    Forget disown - kord will appear and mash you into bloody pulp. No kid of his is gonna be a wussy bookworm - the shame would be too much.

    As for the confusion of classes; I think it could be interpreted that the child has to be a member of the clergy OR a fighter class not forced to be dual.

    Too bad bookwormish deities like Delleb, Lydia and Boccob aren't promiscuous as Kord else we could have a demigod roll off for mentally gifted characters. And a child of Zagyg? Well you'd have to crack out the insanity charts from the DMG for that one. Wink

    Archived in it's own location? No, its in the same pool as my other comics, but I do have a link trail I've created for the Cultist series at the bottom of each issue. Is that what you mean?
