I have now completed my initial proofreading, formatting, and cross-ref
linking, the original format having been uploaded from my ancient Mac
SE/30 in June of '98. 2/2/99
I began working on this document while reading the Greyhawk
Adventures/Gord the Rogue series of novels back in the mid to late
eighties while in high school. At that time there was very little
information availible on the City of Greyhawk - that boxed set had not yet
come out and neither had the second edition of AD&D. I noticed that there
was a good deal of campaign relevant information availible in the novels
and began taking notes. I later noticed that EGG's Greyhawk differed
quite a bit from the Greyhawk material that was published after he and TSR
parted ways. I found his Greyhawk to be richer and more vibrant, which
only made sense as Oerth was his campaign world. Carl Sargent's
suppliments captured much of the detail and spirit that I found in Gygax's
Greyhawk, and the Brown/Moore/Johnson/Reynolds version seems an
interesting attempt to
reconcile the old with the new, but these notes had already lent much
depth to my own campaign. Also included here are references to pre-1986
Greyhawk material when specifically indicated, including pointers to
Dragon articles and Greyhawk information which appeared in non-Greyhawk
rule books, such as the 1st edition DMG. I had refrained from making them
freely availible until recently, when TSR's copyright policy reduced in
strictness and when I was able to get the ok from Mr. Gygax and Trigee to
make public my notes on their lands and characters. Again, this is in no
way an official document for TSR or Trigee. Expect major plot
spoilers for those novels to be found
within these notes.
