The South

I’ve been working on a few things lately, having given up on Greyhawk for a little while (mostly out of frustration, but that’s a topic for a different post), and I’ve sort of just been in a funk lately. Gaming has always been an escape for me, but lately it hasn’t been as enjoyable as it has before. I’ve been …

The DZA’s Greyhawk: Morgau and Doresh Map

I’ve been working on this map for the last few weeks, and I’m still not satisfied that there isn’t a better way to save a better resolution map from the original Illustrator file, but here’s my first effort. Thanks to Anna B. Meyer for letting us use her work to create our own Greyhawk campaign maps. If you haven’t read …

The DZA’s Greyhawk: Morgau and Doresh Living Greyhawk Gazetteer Entry

I didn’t really play much Greyhawk until 3rd Edition D&D came around, so my preferred version of Greyhawk is what’s laid out in the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer (LGG). As such, I wanted to give my new realm of Morgau and Doresh its own entry into that book. I’ve tweaked the entry for the Pomarj, so most of what is here was …

The DZA’s Greyhawk: The Pomarj, reimagined

  It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything, but I’ve actually been working on a couple of projects lately. The first project I worked on after my last post was to design the facade of my necromancer’s tower in my friends homebrew game. It’s set in a Southern European setting, roughly 12th-13th century, and my design was for …

The Hardbuckles of Elmshire

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort. — J. R. R. Tolkien, “The Hobbit” I …

Infinity War

DZA here again. I had surgery recently and I’m off work for two weeks. I’m already going bored out of my mind trying to occupy my time, but I decided I would watch the MCU Phase 3 movies that I have (which is all of them except Black Panther). I don’t think I could do the #RoadtoInfinityWar challenge and watch …

Epilogue

Before I close the book on the Savage Tide Adventure Path, I must acknowledge that defeating Demogorgon on his home plane (I guess Wat Dagon counts?) wasn’t the end of the Savage Tide. The crew of the Sea Wyvern would need to destroy the Master Pearl before all would be well again in the multiverse. Demogorgon’s dying roar reverberated throughout his realm …

DEMOGORGON!!!

I’ve been so preoccupied with Zindia lately, that I haven’t kept you all up to date on the actual game that I played involving Demogorgon and the Savage Tide Adventure Path. Once I realized that there was a great Demogorgon “miniature” that was made for Loot Crate, I picked one up so that I could use it in my epic conclusion. …

Some thoughts about religion in Zindia

While working on my Savage Tide Adventure Path finale with Demogorgon, I created a cleric from Zindia named Eshana. If you’ve been following my work on the Savage Tide, you already knew that, but during the creation of Eshana I needed to come up with what god or goddess she worshipped. I couldn’t figure out something on the spot, so …

Meet the Cast: Zan

When it comes to rogue characters and Greyhawk, my thoughts ALWAYS go to one of two places: a halfing from the notorious Hardbuckle clan of Elmshire, or a female Rhennee from either the City of Greyhawk or the waters of the Nyr Dyv. I’ve played both quite a few times; in fact, a Hardbuckle perished outside the moathouse in Hommlet …
