Greyhawk’s World – The Periphery

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I posted one of these (mainly because I was diverted by doing the Baklunish series which just ended), but here we are, a year later, and I’ve got one last “Greyhawk’s World” article. For now, anyway.

This article covers the periphery of the civilized Flanaess; from Blackmoor in the far north to Hepmonaland and the Sea of Dust in the south, this article covers the goings-on on the periphery of civilization. (It’s worth pointing out that my Patreon patrons got a sneak peek of this article a while ago, ahem.)

This does leave me with a quandry, however.

Do I do another round of the Flanaess, taking us into the years 579 and 580, or do I explore outside the boundaries of the Flanaess into Zindhia, the Celestial Imperium, and beyond (there would probably be a treatment similar to that I did with the Baklunish, with maps, monsters, etc.)? Do let me know your preference in the comments.

  1. I vote you explore outside the boundaries of the Flanaess. That would be way more interesting than another go-round.

  2. Add me to the list of people who’d love to see you do the rest of the world.

    You strike that perfect Gygaxian balance of giving us an idea of what happens in every country, while leaving everything vague enough that we can put on our own spins on them.

  3. I agree with the others. I think it would be great if you “explore outside the boundaries of the Flanaess.” (I’m assuming you mean in the 578 CY period.) This would give DM’s a sense of what might be going on in the wider world, in the same time-period as the other four documents you did for events in the Flanaess. Then, if you return to the Flanaess, you can pickup with events in 579/580 and repeat the cycle out beyond the Flanaess 🙂

    I love these news articles, by the way. It’s a great way to filter a sense of curiosity and wonder about the campaign world to the players in my group who are still new to Greyhawk. Thanks, Joe!

  4. I like these articles about Greyhawk, and hope that you keep doing them, even beyond Flanaess.

    Btw, you might go back to the first posting of Greyhawk’s World (If Only…) and fix the link to the article there. I went back to download all of these and that one was broken, although I did get that article from a later post.
