    It really is! I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined seeing the Father of the Game so involved in an online community... and then I heard about these threads.
    'Genshou is the ruler of Genshouland and the creator of one thousand and one house rules; some of them good, some of them mediocre. Genshou likes cheese and root beer (but never together). Genshou is a young man who is always ridiculously cheerful. He has been described as a madman, a potato, and "cuddly".'

    No, no, no, no!

    I KNOW what Castle Greyhawk/Xagyg/Zagyg/Yggsburgh is (as if Gary's description, above, weren't more than enough for any fool who didn't already know)!

    My question is, if the "Be a Collaborator!" deal in Lejends wasn't about Yggsburgh (and Gary has already posted that it was not), then what was THAT all about?!?

    Keep up with me, here!

    Sorry, I didn;t mean to give the wrong impression there. I mentioned the name of the fanzine so as to make up for the panning by publicizing it. If I mean to truly smoke something I never mention it by name or even hint at that...

    Speaking of adventures, have you used any of the free 3.x adventures available on the WotC site, and if so, what are your opinions on their quality? I'm especially interested in hearing what you think of Wreck Ashore, if you're familiar with it.
    Ah well, another dud response.

    As I don't play 3E, sometimes play OAD&D (or the C&C game) but usually play the Lejendary Adventure skill-bundle-based rules light system, I can be of no assistance regarding this matter :\

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Grodog:

    Sorry I missed answering your querry regarding the second LGGC here. It was a very good gathering--not overcrowded, relaxed, friendly, and fun. I ended up Lejend Mastering for three different groups of seven or eight players here on my front porch each day. Of course we had the pre-con porch party here Thursday evening and night, and there were gamers gathered here each night of the con, including a near dead-dog group sunday night. I was pretty tired and had to shoo away a few holdovers on Monday evening as I sat out on the porch with my beer

    Steveroo:

    The link to Lejends is not functioning, and I must have misunderstood the question too... I don't recall the "Be a Collaborator" piece in the zine. Please refresh my memory. Obviously there wasn't much response to it or I would likely recall the matter

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Oh, ok. That's still kind of funny how things worked out, though. Just not quite as much.

    Oh, I thought maybe you might have played 3E from time to time seeing as you are who you are, but I can certainly understand why you'd stick with the older editions.

    Hmm, maybe you should join my online campaign.
    (I'm joking, of course. That game is officially on hiatus until I can get a consistent work schedule. When it gets going again, though... maybe. Heheh.)

    Don't worry Gary, there'll be more questions coming your way soon enough, of that I am certain.

    G'day Gary,

    I think it is a shame that the agreements you entered into keep you from being able to participate fully with the current incarnations of the game, or even the older, out-of-print materials that were produced by other now-defunct gaming companies. Have you attempted or even considered contacting the current IP holders, in order to re-negotiate terms or otherwise relax the conditions of your agreements?

    It would be novel to see your credits on some products from WOTC, especially when it comes to the Greyhawk material, or even to see an all new 'official' Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (as in 1st edition) set of resources surface with your stamp on it.
