    Postfest XIII(Brewfest 2009): The Haunt of Gol Usan
    mortellan writes "“Our band was on the trail of a coward thief hiding near a wooded lake when we came upon the hovel of a strange old hermit. Before we had a chance to question him, he began to threaten us! He told us that we should leave the woods before night fall or else forfeit our lives. Of course we ignored the fool. We couldn’t turn back now for the Orakhan would have our hides instead. The hermit wouldn’t speak anymore even after we sacked his home searching for the thief. He just stared and smiled. Then our dogs picked up a new scent so we set off into the woods once again just as the sun was setting and an ill wind began to blow across the mesa. What happened over the next several hours was a nightmare. If only we had known the legend of the Haunt of Gol Usan; the old hermit was trying to warn us.” - Testimony of Khurai, sole survivor of the Teeth of Ulakand."

    wolfsire writes "The Legend of the Lost Seagreen Elves is told here by Oceanus of the Manaan as translated by Kellin and Elmorth. It may be the first time it has been spoken in any language other than the Olven tongue. Most recountings amount to little more than parents warning their children to behave or else the Great Pirate might get them. When provided to stalwart heroes, it could make all the difference for justice and mortality."

    gvdammerung writes "When a a professor of history disappears, his lecture notes are compiled for lodging in the library.

They may, however, spark more than one adventure or may satisfy the overly inquisitive player."

    The Gnolls of Raef - The Begininng
    IvorMac writes "In Elven year 975, the Gnolls of Suss Forest, backed by Bestial Clerics of Yeenoghu, conducted raids into Celene in order to capture Elven sacrifices to their deity. On one of these raids, an Elven Noble Maiden was captured. No Elven noble had even been captured and certainly not a noble female! Yeenoghu came before his worshippers just before she was to be sacrificed. In an act of complete disrespect, Yeenoghu raped the noble Elf. Just after Yeenoghu had departed this foul act, the Elven army arrived in full force. They killed almost all of the Gnolls unfortunate enough to be present. They hunted the bestial clerics, attempting to wipe them out. The young Elven noble, though barely alive, managed to survive."

    Excerpts from the Demonomicon of Iggwilv: Fraz-Urb'luu and the Rod of Absolution

    Dargarth of the Axe: Beginnings
    Dargarth writes "Legendary heroes of Greyhawk seem to be few and far-between, and even then they tend to be wizards. Since Fighter is probably the most chosen class in the game, it seems only fair that more warriors be represented within Greyhawk's legends. Author: Dargarth"

Author: MerricB"
    Bardic Lore - The Treasure of Acherak
    MerricB writes "The bards know many legends of the Elder Days. Many have been changed over the years by a teller wanting a slightly more appreciative audience - and a better fee.
