    I'm sure you've been asked this before, but who was in the original Circle of the Eight? Also, if you don't mind me asking, what was the Co8's original mission? Was it always about neutrality or was there some more deviant goal in mind?

    And this was also before everyone knew about the Holocaust. It is my understanding that a fair number of soldiers were surprised at what they came across when they made it to Germany's concentration camps.

    Curious... Except for the Against the Giants result, that sounds fairly like a FTA Greyhawk. *prepares to dodge flying furniture*

    Hey Gary, I was wondering how common extra-planar advantures were/are in your Greyhawk campaign. Besides various demi-planes (such as in Isle of the Ape) did you ever send any PC's to any of the inner or outer planes outlined in the PHB? What about Mordenkainen and crew, did they ever adventure in the Abyss, the Nine Hells, any of the elemental planes, etc?

    That is excellent, as Obmi revels in being reviled by thousands...

    IIRR after al these years:

    Mordenkainen
    Bigby
    Yrag
    Felnorith
    Sigby Grigbyson
    Zigby
    Rigby
    Vran & Vin (counted as one)

    The purpose of the association was to hold and expand the terrirory that they had, and to keep Neutrality paramount therein. So perhaps expansion fits your criterion above

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Such adventures were rare indeed in my campaign or those in which I played. Most off-world action took place in strange and distant lands, ofter in other universes. My players went to the Carabas to fight the Dirdir now and then, to Barsoom, etc. but I didn't send them into elemental planes or the nether realms to adventure, as none were sufficiently powerful to survive such journeys. Of course Robilar did get carried into the Abyss by Zugtmoy, and Erac and Ailerach were taken there by Fraz-urb'lu. none of those unfortunates roamed about there though, and eventuaqlly escaped to return to the PMP

    Cheers,

    Not powerful enough? Gads, man. If Mordenkainen, Bigby, etc. weren't strong enough to survive an extra planar trip who is?

    Heh, I didn't know Robilar got way laid by Zugtmoy. She's tricky, eh? Did Robilar, Erac and Ailerach encounter any figures of note there (besides Z. and Fraz-urb lu, obviously), or was it mostly lesser demons and other sundries? I sure would like to get the chance to drop some PC's in on Juiblex, myself. Sadly, they're currently getting smacked by some hobgoblins :\

    Mordie is nervous aboard the Starship Warden, and even with his most powerful associates would not feel confident of adveturing in the Hells or the Abyss. Maybe if he was a demi-god and his companions were all of at least quasi-deity status...

    The Demoness Queen of Fungi was not so clever, robilar was brash. He tossed a pillar through the door sealing Zuggtmoy into the chamber in the ToEE. She got a look at the handsome adventurer, noted his evil aura, and as a reward for freeing her carried him off to the Abyss as her body servant. I did no go into details there, but eventually Robilar convinced her of the imcompatability of a lawful evil servant in her realm, so she sent his back to the PMP.

    Erac and Aylerach (I never can remember how Mark Ratner spelled that PC's name) accidentally loosed the demon from imprisonment in the dungeons of Greyhawk Castle. He was so delighted at having duped them into doing so that he took them with him when he went home. Again, I did not have detailed adventures there--as both players were hardly speaking to Rob and me after the game session. Eventually the incompatability of LKawful Good in the Abyss brought the demon prince to a decision point: slat the pair or boot them out. The dice roll called for the latter.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Hey, Gary, thanks for the additional info about your players "escapades" in the Abyss. If anything was learned I would assume it was not to be too helpful to demons (even unintentionally!) as their idea of a "reward" doesn't seem to be so great. Especially when dealing with the Demon Queen of Fungi, I suspect
