It could also be my lack of understanding. I own all the old Greyhawk material in PDF form, but I'm curious, what aesthetics really stand out about Greyhawk too you? This isn't in bad faith — I just want to see what about it makes it stand out for its long time fans!
Well Iggwilv is noted as having been a really bad person.
She was pretty much the same person she always was, it's noted she was cruel, arrogant, and despite trying to appear as a benevolent Fairy Godmother to hide from her enemies, cracks in the façade were noted to slip through. Like her idea to help a man who felt guilty about bad things he did, was to put him in a cage and slowly transform him into a manes cause manes don't feel guilt. While she is noted as being ultimately a better person than she used to be, a major reason for this is because she dampened her more negative and evil feelings by incarnating them into demons and locking them in a room (With those emotions returning to her if the Demons are destroyed).
Greyhawk and some Dungeon Adventures ones that weren't specifically set there, but had a nautical theme and could fit well into that book.
Which kinda brings up the idea if they could do something similar with other adventures set there. There's the whole GDQ line, the Slavers line, the Tjoscanth/Tharizdun duo. What I'm not sure of is if there were anything in Dungeon they could use to fill out a book based around any of those...
in addition, this was completely in keeping with the multiverse ethos at the time, which provided that there were an infinite number of Greyhawks that a person could travel to, each slightly different (in fact, this was the way that people could "port" their PCs from one campaign to the next).
Really? That’s interesting; I never heard that before. I always assumed taking a PC from one game to the next was just handwaved for the purposes of getting down to the dungeon crawl. Did people actually roleplay as if their characters were from separate greyhawk timelines?
I didn't ignore it. What, should I take seriously a post that completely ignores the entirety of the OP for reasons?
And if you don't like "Classic Snarf," I would suggest maybe not going into the Greyhawk threads I start to make your brilliant points about how you, personally, don't like Greyhawk because ... wait for it ... it's from the 70s and 80s and "before you were born."
'Cuz, really, if you don't like to learn about things that occurred outside of the last five years, maybe my threads aren't for you?
