Firstly, in case this has already been mentioned I apologize, but the effort is worth a second mention in that case.

We've only just received the latest Dungeon magazine here in Perth, Australia (January issue 118), and one of our members received a glowing thank-you for the months of hard work done years ago, on a definitive map of Greyhawk showing published places of interest.

Thanks Paul (Stormberg). 8)

(Although it's not your only work I thought I'd draw everyone's attention)

Article appears on page 6 for the full write-up.

I thought it may be interesting for anyone else who's been in print about D&D to boast a bit, or for someone to do it for them.

We can't send Grammys, Emmys, or Oscars, but we can give a nod to great achievement.

Howdy Adder,


Thanks much! Sorry, I missed this post the first time it came around. I appreciate the thanks.

My contribution was to find every obscure place on the face of the WoG that I thought should be on a map. I submitted a huge list to the GreyTalk fan list and Kij Johnson as part of the "Stump the Greyhawk Team" thread in 1998. There was mighty talk of a huge master poster map of Greyhawk for DM's. I researched like crazy and then, nothing.

Then, 6 years later, out of the blue Erik contacted me and asked if I still had the list. :)

Not all of the places on my list appear on the map (even some that should have) but quite a few do. I was not the only contributor. Indeed I feel my role is pretty small. Thanks to Erik for the credit and the initiative to get the maps done. Finally!

Here is the last list I posted on GreyTalk, there was another later one emailed to Kij Johnson but I can't find it:
