    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    Absolutely! As I have pointed out often in the past, has anyone ever seen a mythological or folklore depiction of a female dwarf that lacked chin whiskers? Yours for factual dwarven Physiognomy, Gary

    Hmmm... A half-halfling should be a quartling as surely as all female dwarves have luxuriant beards! :lol: Gary

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    Heh... As a mater of fact, the only half-anything characters in my campaign were the human and either elf and orc ones. As I mentioned jokingly, would a half-halfling be a quartling? While hafbreed characters can make for some interesting role-playing, the desire for them is generally...

    As far as I am concerned, there is absolutely no connection between Acererak and Vecna! Cheers, Gary

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    The idea of half-ogres is one to which I no longer subscribe. About as close to a half-ogre in my campaign was a PC's henchman ogre that was bitten by a werebear. The resulting transformed NPC creatiure was of an alignment quite opposite that of the ogre--and his master, Terrik, as well. Your...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    The modules are found on the bottom right of this page: http://www.trolllord.com/newsite/ All of the CZ setting material uses the C&C game system, but with such additions and revisions as I see fit to add to it for the setting, such as the $ monetary system, the added abilities, etc. ;)...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    As for the monetary system, the Lejendary Adventure game-based $ one is so much easier than any one based on a gp that I am at a loss to know why TLG insisted on changing what I had used in the Castle Zagyg, Yggsburgh ms. Hire it is: 1 cp = $1 1 sp = $10 1 gp = $500 Call the coin types...

    Actually it was all I could manage to keep the players from constantly chattering. Adding music to the commotion would have made DMing impossible. All of my groups have enjoyed a lot of socialization during play. Cheers, Gary

    :lol: Can't be much different from what every farmboy knows at about age six :eek: Cheerio, Gary

    Why not? All of that is the purview of the Game Master in any campaign world. Cheers, Gary

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    :lol: A sketch map of the community, a few places of interested highlighted in color, and then wing it. As the PCs develop something interesting by interacting with what I present that becomes a fixture in the town. This might be a particular street thief, a tavern, a stable with a shifty...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    Thankee! In order to get to the castle and ruins I thought it best to establish a detailed environment and good-sized community for the setting. Thus Castle Zagyg Yggsburgh and the East Mark. Of course, detailing the big walled town by dividing it into quarters or districts, mappomg each and...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    It was never contemplated to offer any lower level of module especially for younger players. As the core rules are not written for children, offering special modules for them would be rather pointless. The adventures for novice PCs were meant to supply the DM with material for a younger player...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    :heh: As it happens Olidammara is a creation of my own that Len added to his pantheon. It is likely a revised and expanded boxed set for the WoG would have gone into the hopper had I remained in charge of the company after 1984. Cheers, Gary

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    Likely that. Although a few more of evil sort managed to find and pass through remaining gateways to Oerth. Yes, the ancient Adepts of Learth could and did end up devistating not only their reptillian former slave masters but their own empires. Cheers, Gary

    I expected the DM to decide how to handle such a situation, of course. Cheerio, Gary

    Len deserves the lion's share of the credit, and blame if any, for the Suel deities. I simply did a bit of editing of his work. Cheers, Gary

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    The long questions can be answered with a short response, How the non-human races came to Oerth was never a question in my campaign. I had a vague notion about large gates being common in past millenia, these inter-world portals gradually decreasing in size and eventually virtually...

    TSR Q&A with Gary Gygax

    As a lad I was iaken often to the Field Museum in Chicago, and my favorite exhibits were the fighting bull elephants, the many rooms with cases of sruffed wild animals, the bronzes of the African tribesmen spearing a pair of lions, the Egyptology area in the basement, and the dinosaurs up on the...

    :confused: True, but this answer doesn't relate directly to a FRPG set in a quasi-medieval environment that features dragons and like monsters. ;) Gary
