Factions and Organizations of the Flanaess

More Greyhawk goodness for those who use 5th Edition! This time I take a crack at some of the factions and organizations in the Flanaess, particularly those active in the central region around the Nyr Dyv.

This book is about ten pages, and includes details on the Circle of Eight, Cult of Asmodeus, Knights of the Hart, Knights of Holy Shielding, Knights of the Watch, Rangers of the Gnarley Forest, Scarlet Brotherhood, and Temple of Elemental Evil. It’s also got a table describing missions that members of these factions might be sent on, depending on your rank.

For those not familiar with the rules for factions and organizations, see p. 22 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide.

You can download the file here.

  1. Ahh! Factions are one of the highlights of Greyhawk. Great stuff here! And I had never even heard of the Rangers of the Gnarley Forest before. But I am confused: Wasn’t the Circle of Eight founded by Mordenkainen? Why isn’t he listed among its members?

  2. This piece meets the usual high quality we’ve come to expect from you, Mr. Bloch. I especially love how you made it equally compatible for 576 and 591 CY campaigns and stories!
