    -Besides the basic sources (1983 Boxed set, etc), if I was going to recommend a single module, it would be T1, Village of Hommlet (and nearby moathouse). The village is a base for adventure for 1st level PCs, and the moathouse is the first target on the list. I've always like the flavor of the village, FWIW.

    Colossus, of X-Men fame, is my favorite X-Man. His skin turns into an Osmium-Steel alloy. First used the nickname on Olympia, old PBEM game. Osmium, or Osmium Steele, has been a favorite moniker ever since.

    Well met, Patrick. Rare is it among mutant fans to find somebody who isn't on the Wolverine bandwagon. I personally prefer Beast or Magneto (mainly b/c he tosses Wolvie around like a ferrous rag doll...and likely would do so with poor Piotr Rasputin, too!).

    At any rate, welcome aboard. What current system do you prefer?

    p.s. you gotta find a Colossus Avatar.

    Greetings fellow Greyhawkers.

    My name is Raymond. I am older than dirt, I started playing AD&D back in 1981 and still prefer it to this day. Although I was raised in and abided in Georgia for most of my many years, I currently reside on the backside of South Florida. I call myself the Southern Gent because that is what I am and have always aspired to be. I just introduced my son and his buddy to the perils and hazards of Narwell after dark. It's fun seeing characters that fear kobalds and goblins.

    The D&D section has shrunk a bit. Warhammer 40k is the largest gaming section now, but still my first stop for dice, miniatures, etc.
    I'm a modeller too, so yeah, Rider's is the place.

    AD&D, with some 2E thrown in for good measure. Taking a hard look at 5E. 3.x and 4E I could not stomach. Started getting too complicated. Became a game for min/maxxers and rules wonks.

    Think Squad Leader vs. Advanced Squad Leader. (shiver)

    Oooh, a colossus avatar it is!

    53 year old male 2E player from London, Ontario.

    Love all the CF articles. I used a huge amount of them to come up with a history of Pholtus in the Flanaess. Do folk still post articles? As the vast majority of the work is purely the work of others, I have doubts on posting it. Would be as much work to get permission from original authors. It was only intended as a character role play thing.

    Historica Pholtus in Flanaess is posted on docdroid but only so I could let my DM have a look at it.

    Made it up to look like an illuminated manuscript, sort of.

    I am thinking of posting it but would be a lot of work further, like I said, to contact original authors.

    Do I need to? Can I just reference them?

    Welcome, Rom! We're glad you've enjoyed the fan material you found here on Canonfire!

    As far as I know, it is fine to repost fan work as long as you abide by the following two rules:

    1) You do not materially profit by it, and
    2) You credit the original authors.

    In other words, you don't need their specific permission to repost work other authors posted for free as long as you don't charge anything for it and you list them as the original authors (so no one thinks it's your original work).

    I'm sure others will correct me if I'm wrong. Wink

    Happy

    Welcome to our 'club' Rom. You will find that a few of us still cling to the halcyon days of 2e, including yours truly. I commonly prowl the 2e Forum but make infrequent appearances at other ones, too.

    Looking forward to hearing from you on the posts,

    Lanthorn, 2e "Greeter"

    Greetings Rom and welcome to Canonfire!

    I replied to your query in the Reader's Workshop, but the notification seems to be malfunctioning for me. I'm assuming that you've already found the wiki, as you have obviously found the "Articles" link.

    I hope you enjoy your association with the site. Canonfire! is the home of everything Greyhawk.

    Enjoy and welcome again.

    Shame on me for not joining Canonfire! ages ago; well, better late than never, I suppose. Smile

    I got into WORLD OF GREYHAWK® due to 3e using it as the default—kind of a cheap excuse, but being that it was Gygax's creation also made it feel more "wholesome" to me; I enjoy the other settings for their individual players, but my longest running and favorite character, Quintessa, will always be tied to the Flanaess—while initially created in SoulCalibur her being a fair-skinned, white-haired, vain, conceited, selfish, self-centered, egotistical sorceress just screamed "Suel" to me.

    (I really need to clean up her backstory, though).

    Howdy all, definitely a newbie here. Though not around the D&D fora in general. I'm assuming I'm here because of grodog. :)
    Nice to meet you and wonderful to recognize some names!
    Be well,
    --Ron--
