World of Greyhawk is Live on EE

The World of Greyhawk Action Server is now live, out of beta-testing, and firing on all Enhanced Edition cylinders! We are proud to make the Beamdog EE transition, and we would like to thank them for keeping the dream alive. Thank you, my lords and ladies of Beamdog, we are at your service. Now, on with the news!

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, and there’s even some light-hearted role-play involved. 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, with more on the way. There are many quests, some of which place the world itself in jeopardy.

All classes and races welcome. We use only the CEP (2.65), and it is playable solo or party from 1-40.
