Greyhawk Collector's Guide

Well, that was fun

The Forgotten Realms Collector's Guide ended up here (well, at least the first part did). I think all of the Collector's Guide are available again somewhere on ENWorld, but I have to search for them, and there are many broken links after all of the wiki upgrades. At some point I will work through them fixing the links.
Let me know if I can help. I know the wiki change screwed a bunch of stuff up, but I can move anything we need to.

It looks like WotC has been issuing some promotional items as part of the Tomb of Annihilation launch, including at least these Greyhawk-related items:

1. an Origins 2017 pint beer glass with the Green Devil Face from Tomb of Horrors @ https://www.ebay.com/itm/222796200545
2. a GaryCon 2017 cloth map of the Tomb of Horrors (no idea if these were distributed more widely or not) @ https://www.ebay.com/itm/192426187179
The glass (and a beer coaster) was for Tomb of Annihilation (which features Acererak, but is not based in or using Greyhawk), given out at Origins 2017. There are other items as part of this: a green dice bag with the devil face, a devil face cloth patch, a cloth shopping bag with the devil face logo. Similarly, the latest minis set has Acererak in it and the case incentive has the green devil face. All super-cool, but only loosely associated with Greyhawk.

[MENTION=9849]Echohawk[/MENTION]: time to add the 5e book Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes (both standard and limited editions).

Also: I found a new t-shirt: an Against the Giants 25th Anniversary shirt, provided as part of the Adventurer's Guild materials. That puts it in the July-Sept 1999 timeframe. There were also some promotional posters issued for the AG at that time too; see https://www.ebay.com/itm/Poster-RPGA-Adventurers-Guild/263715618837?hash=item3d66ad0015:g:S7YAAOSwLVZVyiuC and https://www.ebay.com/itm/Poster-Adventurers-Guild-An-Eye-for-an-Eye-1998-Marvel/263715618776?hash=item3d66acffd8:g:fB0AAOSw3ydVyiw9 and https://www.ebay.com/itm/Poster-Adventurers-Guild-Got-an-Axe-to-Grind-1998-Marvel/352365090533?hash=item520a9896e5:g:SJkAAOSwMmBVyiwh

You'll want to add the 5e Ghosts of Saltmarsh book too, Ant!

I'm also working up a piece on the Quest for the Hand of Vecna, an old 1983-4-ish non-TSR adventure by Carl Perkins that was set in Greyhawk, too.

@Echohawk : Ant, a question was raised by David Prata over on Canonfire! that I thought you might recall from your Living Greyhawk researches:

DMPrata said:
I know this is an extreme longshot, but here goes. I stumbled upon the following reference in URD1-08 Mired in Gosferd:
Talor-Keptal [a kobold adept] bears the ivory talisman [a lizard’s head] of the Scaled Cult, a mysterious force gaining power in the fetid fens of the Gnatmarsh.
I don’t have a complete LG Duchy of Urnst archive, but I found no other references to this cult in any of the modules I do have. Does anyone know if this cult was developed later in the campaign? I note that in NYR3-S03 Pillars of the Gnatmarsh, the Witches of the Sand have shocker lizards. Is that coincidental development by two different triads?
That ring any bells?

Yes, the scaled cult surfaces again in URD3-07: Purloined Letters. Quoting from the "Adventure Background" section:
Stepping ahead to current times, a force of malign power has been gathering allies within the Gnatmarsh. Little is known of the true nature of the Scaled Cult, or what hand is directing them. What is known is that bands of kobolds have been scouring lands in and around the Duchy of Urnst, searching for ancient arcane writings, research into the lost magic of the Maure Suel. Silovin, a half-fiend sorcerer of great importance within the Cult, has been directing these bands. She has discovered the truth about the fate of Imiriana’s tower, and has dispatched a well-armed band of kobolds to sack the tower and recover a trove of utmost importance: The correspondence and personal writings of Imiriana herself, one of the foremost researchers into the Far Realms.
The adventure starts just after the kobolds have destroyed the elven seals and looted the tower.
