The Dragon #3 part 2

The Gnome Cache Chapter 3 and 4: Gary’s serialised novel continues. In these two chapters, Dunstan escapes from the ruffians he hooked up with last time, and takes the stableboy Mellerd into his employ. As for tidbits for me to include in the World of Greyhawk, see below. The Inn of the Riven Oak is run by Innkeeper Krell, with the help of Meggin the buxom tavern wench. The soldiers searching for…

The Dragon #3 part 1

My epic trek continues, with a foray into The Dragon #3. As usual, I’ll begin with a brief description of those articles which have no bearing on my mammoth project. Dragon Rumbles starts the issue with an eloquent editorial defense of the use of fiction in the magazine. Does Anyone Remember War of the Empires sees Gary reminiscing about an early play-by-mail sci-fi wargame. The Adventures of …

Supplement IV: Gods, Demi-Gods & Heroes

And so it comes to this: the last D&D supplement! Come on, it says so right in the foreword. No more supplements after this one, honest! Well, technically it’s true, because this is the last official product for this version of D&D. But it still seems laughable at face value. Supplement IV is a strange beastie, not at all like its predecessors. It has a…

The Dragon #2 part 2

First things first, apologies for missing my posts over the last week. I have been very ill, and I suspect that I was level-drained by a KFC fillet burger. But enough of that! Hale and hearty, I continue with The Dragon #2. THE GNOME CACHE part 2: The second part of this serialised novel sees Dunstan encountering a bunch of no-…

The Dragon #1 part 2

And now, The Dragon #1, part the second. CREATURE FEATURE – THE BULETTE: This monster is also known as the Landshark, which the internet assures me is a reference to some obscure comedy show that we didn’t get in Australia. Can’t have been very good if we didn’t get it. But anyway, the Bulette was cross-bred from the armadillo and the snapping turtle, …

The Dragon #1 part 1

Today I move on from Supplement III, and tackle the premiere issue of The Dragon. Formerly known as The Strategic Review, this magazine is now twice as big and a whole lot more fancy. The content isn’t particularly different at this stage, but there’s an air of professionalism about the thing that wasn’t their in the previous incarnation. TSR is moving up …

Post-Eldritch Wizardry Campaign Round-Up

The following shows what the campaign will look like once everything up to and including Supplement III: Eldritch Wizardry has been included. It should also be noted that the last time I did this was just before I tackled Supplement II, so the new inclusions here also include material from that product. As usual, any new additions are highlighted in red. RULES: The rules used at the beginning of…
