Lankhmar Collector's Guide

Welcome to the Lankhmar Collector's Guide!

This is one of a series of Echohawk's D&D Collector's Guides, each of which aims to provide a comprehensive guide to D&D products published for a particular setting or era of the game. This particular guide focuses on the Lankhmar campaign setting.

The Lankhmar setting has its origins in a series of short stories penned by the late, great Frizt Leiber between 1939 and 1988. These short stories tell the story of Fafhrd and The Gray Mouser, perhaps two of fantasy's most archetypical rogues. Leiber's stories have been gathered together in a variety of compilations over the years; this Guide is limited to just the title of each story or collection, and does not attempt to fully document seventy years of fiction publication history.

The first Lankhmar product published by TSR was the 1976 stand-alone "Lankhmar" board game (co-designed by Frizt Leiber himself). The inclusion of the Nehwon pantheon in Deities & Demigods was the first time the setting had any D&D material published for it, and this was followed by a campaign setting book as the first in a line of fourteen AD&D and AD&D2 game products. TSR's Lankhmar licence expired before D&D 3rd edition was released and since then, Lankhmar has had only limited support as a game setting in the form of four RuneQuest books published by Mongoose Publishing.

This was the eleventh installment when the Collector's Guides were first published. The original thread for this Collector's Guide is here.
