D&D General GAZ4 The Kingdom of Ierendi (BECMI) and GAZ5 The Elves of Alfheim (BECMI) released in POD format on DriveThruRPG!


The EN World kitten
WotC has just made GAZ4 The Kingdom of Ierendi ($9.99) and GAZ5 The Elves of Alfheim ($9.99) available for print-on-demand over on DriveThruRPG!

Part of the Gazetteers line that charted various regions of the Known World (aka Mystara) for the BECMI incarnation of Basic D&D, GAZ4 covered an area that included the much more famous X1 The Isle of Dread, while GAZ5 fleshed out what had been sporadic mentions of Alfheim up to then, with references appearing as early as GAZ1 The Grand Duchy of Karameikos. More notably (at least to my mind) was that this was the book that apparently confirmed that the Known World didn't have half-elves, unlike AD&D.

These are the latest books to be given a print on demand option from WotC, following CM8 The Endless Stair (BECMI), Minsc and Boo's Journal of Villainy (D&D 5E), the d20 Modern Core Rulebook, Urban Arcana (d20 Modern), d20 Dark Matter (d20 Modern), Chainmail: Rules for Medieval Miniatures, L3 Deep Dwarven Delve (AD&D 1E), A Guide to the Ethereal Plane (Planescape), DLR3 Unsung Heroes (Dragonlance 2E), Dungeon Master's Guide 2 (4E), Monster Manual 3 (4E), and Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale (4E), and City of the Spider Queen (Forgotten Realms 3.5). While H1 Bloodstone Pass (AD&D 1E) was given a POD release, this was later removed for unknown reasons. (EDIT: Looks like the POD option has since been restored!)

Other recent releases include X4 Master of the Desert Nomads (B/X), B7 Rahasia (BECMI) and DLT2 Book of Lairs (Dragonlance 2E), DLS4 Wild Elves (Dragonlance 2E), Greyhawk: The Adventure Begins (Greyhawk 2E), WGM1 Border Watch (Greyhawk 2E), The Book of Lairs (Forgotten Realms 2E), AC10 Bestiary of Dragons & Giants (BECMI), Halls of Undermountain (4E), the War Captain's Companion (Spelljammer), PC3 Creature Crucible: The Sea People (BECMI), Volo's Guide to the Sword Coast (Forgotten Realms 2E), Volo's Guide to Waterdeep (Forgotten Realms 2E), Volo's Guide to Cormyr (Forgotten Realms 2E), the Dark Sun Boxed Set (the original one for AD&D 2E), Campaign Option: Council of Wyrms, and the Planescape Campaign Setting.

Are these the first titles from Mystara setting? There is potential for Savage Coast/Red Steel and Hollow World (Conan the Barbarian + Jurasic World). Why not a partnership with Capcom for a mash-up version of their famous characters in Mystara? It would work like Marvel vs Capcom.

I like the idea of spider-dragon from (no-canon now) Dragonlance's "Wild Elves" sourcebook.
