I just found out that the current edition of the Dragons Landing Podcast (episode 99.98) dealt with one of my posts from a couple of years ago dealing with the Greyhawk Construction Company. In one sense, they don’t seem to really like the concept of it being completely and intentionally a whimsical idea, designed specifically for the sort of game that is centered around the castle of a humorously insane demigod. They seem to want to turn it into some sort of “realistic” institution to fit in a “realistic” game. (This in a game with magic spells, pegasi, goblins, and demons. *grin*)
But it’s still a very interesting discussion they have, and I think it’s well worth listening to. I’m honored that people think so much of my stuff that they’d take the time to have such a thorough discussion of it. They do take the original idea and riff on it in new directions, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that.
The segment starts around the 45:46 mark on the podcast.
