    Missing map of Oerth

    Not to contradict Gary, but I think Roger Moore or Erik Mona somehow found that map, or something similar. It was a map of Oerth that included countries like "Erypt" and I think "Zindia". I can't remember who they got it from, but apparently it survived the barbarian hordes of She Who Is Only Occassionally Named.

    It was discussed years ago (1996-1999 era) on the old AOL discussion board about Greyhawk. Erik got his job with WOTC and now Paizo by being a superfan on that board . . .

    Debacle? I'd say amusing farce is a more accurate description of the matter. A tale to be told and retold amidst gales of mirth!

    Pish!

    The scrap from iron battleships would feed all the Oerth's rust monsters for a century, that without considering automobile junkyards

    Heh,

    Sides. Im sure the rust monster has some sort of natural preadator to keep their numbers down? If not, invent one.

    That's really interesting to read. I know Francois Marcela Froideval for being co-founder with Didier Guiserix of the magazine Casus Belli in France, and knew he was playing with you at some time.
    Indeed, I know Didier and his wife too, have been to their apartment in Paris.

    Was Francois playing Whismerhill at your game table (I am not even aware if you know that character name)? I heard this was his character at some point before making it into the Chroniques de la Lune Noire comics series, but do not know if it was you or someone else who was DMing.
    Yes, Francois was playing Whismerhill (aka "Wimpmirill" acccording to my son Luke) with me as the DM, also rob Kuntz and some others likely.

    Another related question, but this time regarding T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil. It is specified in the introduction that Hommlet and its surroundings were designed for and modified by actual players of Greyhawk. It is also indicated that many of the followers of these PCs made it as NPCs in the module.

    My question regarding this: Do you remember which NPCs were originally followers of the PCs you mention? Any specifics about these player characters or anecdotes of these game session worth sharing with us?
    If i had a list of names I might be able to assist, but I can't recall without such memory refreshment.

    ]Edit - last question: There is a character that appeared in Casus Belli who was called "Gros Bill" (Big Bill). This was "the" powergamer collecting magical items and optimizing everything for efficiency in the game, and it still remains today the translation of "munchkin" in French. Gros Bill seems to have been one of the players at your game table. Does it ring any bell?

    Thanks!
    But of course. I met Gros Bill in Paris and gamed with him in Francois' campaign, DMed for Gros bill and other of Francois group at the time

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Heh,

    That was the residence of Donald Raymond Kaye, born 27 June 1938, one month my senior, and a friend of mine from age 6 or so on.

    Do not be misled! that map is spurious and has nothing to do with any creative addition to the Oerth that I planned.

    the claim was bandied about but no one making it ever asked for verification from me.

    I have frequently denied its authenticity on public boards.
