World of Greyhawk, EE Mithral Edition

The World of Greyhawk Action Server, Mithral Edition is now live, out of beta-testing, and firing on all Enhanced Edition cylinders! Our most recent installment in our vision of bringing Oerth to life is The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh (U1). Soon to follow, of course, will be U2 and U3.

Come back to where it all began, to the ancient genesis of our role-playing forefathers, to Oerth, and to the World of Greyhawk! The World of Greyhawk Action Server has been an on-going and evolving persistent world since 2005. It’s hard to believe that we’ve been around for 13 years, and that we might be older than some of the people who play there. It is not a heavy role-playing environment, nor is it all hack-and-slash/Monty Haul-style campaign. The World of Greyhawk is rich in action, intrigue, mysteries, traps, puzzles and wonders, mixed in with humor and light role-play. The world is low to mid-magic, and many feats and spells have been customized to suit the setting.

For old school players, the World of Greyhawk hardly needs description. This was the birthplace and origin of many monsters, heroes, and locales that are now as common as household words-- Mordenkainen, Bigby, Tenser, Rary, Iuz the Old, Vecna, Tharizdun, and more. Players will find themselves in the hotbed of the central Flanaess, and will find such places as The Free City of Greyhawk, The Wild Coast, The Abbor Alz and Bright Desert, The Shield Lands, The Gnarley Forest, Village of Hommlet, The Horned Lands, White Plume Mountain, Against the Giants series, The Ghost Tower of Inverness, the notorious Temple of Elemental Evil, and the incomparable Queen of the Demonweb Pits adventure, and just recently the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh was added. There are many quests, some of which place the world itself in jeopardy.

Warm winds and hello! This is just a plug for those still looking for a new PW to explore, or for those looking for a PW who may seem like an old friend, or anyone wanting to try something different. As Neverwinter Nights turned 18 years old this summer, the World of Greyhawk Action Server turns 15 years in the Fall. For 15 years the World of Greyhawk has been live and been home to some of the fiercest action in the NW Multiverse. With over 500 areas, multiple cities, islands, underwater action, outer planes, endless dungeons, over 60 quests, overarching storylines and crossover events, persistent banking, storage and horse system, the entire Greyhawk Pantheon of Gods and Goddesses, villains whose names are familiar as household words, a robust and dynamic loot system and, woven into the fabric of it all, are some of the most classic adventures of all time, faithfully created and adapted by the WoG Team and found nowhere else like they are here:

  • The Village of Hommlet
  • The Temple of Elemental Evil
  • Against the Giants
  • Descent into the Depths of the Earth (and Vault of the Drow)
  • Queen of the Demonweb Pits
  • The Ghost Tower of Inverness
  • Rary the Traitor
  • White Plume Mountain
  • The Marklands
  • Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
  • Danger at Dunwater
  • The Final Enemy

I’m sure there is more I’ve forgotten than what I am remembering. While roleplaying is always encouraged, it’s not a prerequisite, for much of World of Greyhawk is action-oriented and problem solving and players may play at their own speed, leisure and style. Greyhawk is a mid-magic world whose setting is the central Flanaess shortly after the Greyhawk Wars. There is much strife and tension in the world, and many kingdoms are either at war or weary from it. Others have closed their border altogether. And an evil shadow slowly creeps across the world…
