Honestly I'm just excited to be playing the stories I didn't get to play. Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, Eberron, or Modern Earth. I'm easy.
Everything you said is true. It's just that the local stores play what is currently out. It's easier to get a game that way. But when the current thing is a remake of an older thing, the opportunity to play it skyrockets.You can buy U1-3 cheap as a pdf. U1 is easily the best of the three. In any event, you can get them each for $3.
The Dungeon adventures are okay, so you really aren't missing much.
There wasn't anything stopping you from playing them already.
Much as I loved the Greyhawk setting back in the 80s and 90s, I have to agree with this. It's indeed quite hard for a company to try to resurrect and rebuild a fanbase for a product that (in Greyhawk's case) had at least one or more divisive splits (Greyhawk pre-Gary leaving, Greyhawk post-Gary leaving, and and the "From the Ashes" Greyhawk, not to mention the wild Vecna subplots back in the late 1990s that some people said "that's not Greyhawk!" -- oh, and lest we forget, fans of the Castle Gaxmoor stuff that Gary contributed to that some people want WotC to inexplicably co-opt because it was Gary's take on some of his original campaign notes, or something like that...)Now I sincerely hope he gets what we wants and I will snap that sh*t up in multiple formats as soon as it drops but I can't blame WotC one little bit for focusing on the other 99 people.
Agree completely with this with the the explicit inclusion of opening it up to DM's Guild (like was done with Eberron).Honestly dealing with Greyhawk is simply, give the job to Luke Gygax, do it as a PDF, low cost and low risk, and if it proves popular, do a Hardcover later. Like they did for Waycarer's Guide to Eberron written by Keith Baker. They have the basic recipe for this, just use it. Anything else is just hypothetical complications.
I agree fully. I think this would be the best way to bring Greyhawk to 5e.Honestly dealing with Greyhawk is simply, give the job to Luke Gygax, do it as a PDF, low cost and low risk, and if it proves popular, do a Hardcover later.
