AUGUST
COR7-12 Heart's Desire by Eric Menge
The thief showed his heart's desire to his wife. Worth more than anything they had seen before, the stolen jewel promised a new life for them if only they could get far enough from Greyhawk and the criminals for whom he worked.

"It will all work out. Don't you worry about a thing." A one-round core adventure set in the Domain of Greyhawk for characters level 1-11 (APLs 2-8).

COR7-14 Sign of the Rhennee Queen by Chris Chesher and Gordon Smith
Years ago a sailing ship mysteriously appeared inland on the busy trade route into the Wild Coast towns. It was quickly turned into a way-station.

A one-round core adventure set in the Domain of Greyhawk for characters level 1-15 (APLs 2-12).

CORS7-03 Into White Plume by Creighton Broadhurst and Britt Frey
Long a place of legend, tales of White Plume Mountain are well known. Once the lair of the infamous wizard, Keraptis, the threat from this mountain was thought laid low decades ago.

This adventure is split into low (APLs 2-8) and high (APLs 10-14) levels of play; a player may only play one of them. A one-round, core-special adventure set in the March of Sterich and the Hellfurnaces for characters level 1-15 (APLs 2-14).

CGR7-01 Ruins of Discovery
Neophyte adventurers have long flocked to the City of Greyhawk to seek fame and fortune. This year, however, is different; intrigue and the reawakening of a site of legend, provide the brave and the lucky with plenty of opportunities for glory (or ignominy).It is a shame that murder is the catalyst for rivals to come together in a time of need. A Greyhawk Ruins adventure for 1st-level characters (APL 2) set in the Domain of Greyhawk.

Greyhawk Ruins.

Greyhawk Ruins
This adventure arc consists of four adventures designed to complement the super-adventure Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk by Jason Bulmahn, James Jacobs, Erik Mona set in the Free City itself, the ruins of Castle Greyhawk, and the dungeons below.

These are adventures with a twist. The dungeons below Castle Greyhawk are extensive. Thus, each Greyhawk Ruins adventure will contain as much challenge as four, one-round adventures. Playable in one, two, three, or even four sessions allowing players explore more of the dungeon levels and secret locations.

When released, these adventures will become simultaneously available for conventions, game days, retail events, and home play. (Of course, adventures releasing in months with a major convention will premier there first.) All Greyhawk Ruins adventures retire on 31 December 2008 giving you plenty of time to play them.

Domain of Greyhawk Residency
Only new or 1st-level characters can play in Greyhawk Ruins. (That is the AR for the first adventure must appear in your stack before you reach 2nd-level). If you create a new character for the arc, you can choose the Domain of Greyhawk as your home region.
