D&D General No D&D World Loyalty: Still playing After 37 Years

I’m a huge grognard. I used to hunt down old issues of Dargon magazine for twenty year old updates on events in the world of Greyhawk. I ran a Greyhawk campaign for a decade or so that spanned from the late 1980s through the 1990s. We ran through Temple, Slavers, Giants through Demonweb, White Plume Mountain, Tomb of Horrors, and then those adventures where Iuz was masquerading as a Viking king. We entered a Out of the Ashes era. When 3E came around, we restarted in the early 2000s to run a campaign that took place mostly against a rise of the Pomarj that had overtaken most of the Wild Coast.

Anyway, I’m here to report that now I’ve been playing a three year campaign in the Forgotten Realms and it’s been awesome. I specifically remember buying the “grey box” of Fr and thinking it was weird and a deviation from the True Faith of Greyhawk. But I’m perfectly happy in the Forgotten Realms now.

One thing that occurs to me is that in each of these worlds, I more or less ignored the mythology when it didn’t fit my plans. So we’re now in a version of Storm King’s Thunder that has led the party to Chult and everything in Chult that dies comes back as a zombie. That’s a kind of crazy mix of cannon but I think that’s what’s made our games last for decades
