Origins Report



As always the Living Greyhawk campaign was the king of the show. We premiered three new events, including the 2nd Living Greyhawk special, CORS4-02 Here There Be Dragons to great acclaim. Many braved the cold dangers of the Land of Black Ice and some even managed to get away with a little loot to go with their lives. A few APL 18 tables formed up before the show and were challenged by event co-author Bill Muench with all the evil skills he could muster.

We hope to have the adventure ready for homeplay sometime in September or October. So keep your eyes peeled.

Rev up my Revivify

Once again ghosts of ages past have cast bestow confusion upon the campaign. An error has crept into the LGCS 3.0 and the following is an immediate correction to an incorrect spell listing found in it.

Revivify – this spell was listed as 'Limited' in the LGCS 3.0 – this is incorrect. This spell should be listed as 'Restricted' as it is not usable in the Living Greyhawk campaign. If you have this spell you need to remove it and choose another based on the criteria that let you pick it in the first place. Please contact your triad if you have further questions on this matter.

Living Greyhawk Campaign Survey 2004 (continued)

The Living Greyhawk campaign staff prides itself on being as accessible to the players as possible. From the LG-draft list, where every player has an equal say, to the LG survey where you can give comments and know a circle member will read every last one of them, to talking to players one-on-one at shows, we do our best to make every last player feel like their voice is being heard and the campaign is listening.

So with January marking the start of the 4th year of the Living Greyhawk campaign, we also kicked off our 2nd annual LG survey. This survey gave the players in the campaign a chance to rate the campaign as a whole, their region, and sound off on what they liked and disliked about the campaign. In our continuing series on the survey today we will explore what some people thought were the best adventures to come out in year two and year three as well as some numbers on some ideas we are putting into place.
