    Greyhawk Events at Gen Con?

    I'm looking over the 2017 Gen Con event catalog and I was wondering if anyone knew of more Greyhawk-related events than the following:

    numerous Greyhawk Reborn 5e events
    3.5 Honor Among Thieves
    the 4-part Icons of Greyhawk series

    Any tips or recommendations would be welcome.
    thanks!

    While not "GH" specifically, it may have a bit of GH Flavor is the "Heart of the Forest Savage" by Skip Williams done in 2e.. my bunch of players never did a 2e so I'm dragging them along for this one.

    As already stated, there are a number of 5e renditions of GH... and a 3.5 "honor among Thieves" based from the Greyhawk thieves guild... but it might be booked up.. but you could aways by a generic ticket and show up incase there is a seat.

    According To a search on the events list there are 39 GH type games set up.

    Speaking of which, are there any plans for a dinner/drinks meet-up like we've had in the past? I've missed the last 2-3 years, but I'll be there this time!

    Dammit Rob!

    This year I won't be there. It was just Anna, me and my friends last time.

    Many years past, I went to the University of Wisconsin version (Gencon 15 maybe? lol tooo many years to remember), never been to the more "commercialized" Indy version.

    But for the 50th Anniversary, dragging some of my players that have never been at all. So we will be there.

    Getting some 2e version play in and several seminars.

    Bloody hell! Well, I'll hoist one for you. Where have you guys been meeting since I was last there? I remember the year my plans fell through we were planning to meet at the restaurant in the JW Marriott (I think) because the RAM was too crowded.

    Yeah the JW. It was also in part because the Greyhawk Reborn crowd was running their events out of that hotel. The RAM will forever be my favorite cause of the outside seating and its central to the action. The JW is kind of a hike.

    Most excellent! It is getting harder and harder to find 2e items (out of print, of course), though once in a while you can get lucky enough to find one. I hope you are having a great time, and that your players enjoy 2e.

    Greyhawk reborn will be at Gen Con 50, and would love to talk Greyhawk with folks. Hopefully we can get together! We'll be in the JW Marriot again.

    Hi guys :)

    Yes I will be at Gen Con. Most of the time I will work at Lonewolf Development, booth 343 or in the Saga Ballroom. But will have time off and would love to hang out with you!

    So for any going to the Gencon, go by and extend greetings and a BIG THANK YOU for all the Greyhawk love she has shared for all of us.

    Thanks again Allan,
    managed to squeeze in Retrospective Panel: Fantasy Conquers Gen Con that at least gets me able to fire some Greyhawk at Luke Gygax, which will be great to hear the perspective.

    The unexpected bonus is also being able to meet Tim Kask of Strategic Review, and editor of the White Box supplements.....the "original " Supplement IV:Gods, Demigods and Heroes.*

    *Supplement to the white box along with Blackmoor, Greyhawk, Eldritch Wizardry,long before it actually became the hard bound Deities and Demi-gods book.... for all you youngsters (1/2 my current players) reading along... <whink>

    And Mike Carr (Dawn Patrol!) Two games that lead me to D&D from the smoky fields of miniature wargaming.

    Still trying to figure out how to make the Hickman, Weis (Dragon Lance), and Steve Jackson (Ogre), Frank Mentzer (way too many to list but my interest is the EARLY D&D versus AD&D)... gonna be a busy con!

    Cheers
