IF I were asked to pay in the $100 range, I would expect "archival quality" maps and professional layout, and no headgames about different editions or volumes I, II and III....no "additional lost materials."  For that price I want all of it.   :evil:

I might be more interested, however, in the hand drawn maps and the original notes, even in electronic version, so I can see the original.

Consider what it is about Arneson's First Fantasy Campaign that makes it a collector favorite.

And, how about a special deal with WOTC to allow Gary to use the Greyhawk name on this one, special project.

I wonder why not?  No old animosities should be left with the current owners.  Cash is the only issue.

they spent enough time and effort burying everything of old, i highly doubt they would want it to resurface again.

and as well with cash, if that had to be a deciding factor too, the amount of money this project would have to make to "balance the books" would be beyond its possible worth imo.

but hey, you never know!

Mark, if I ever play the lottery, and then win, I'll buy Greyhawk from Hasbro and then we'll see some fun! :D  Until, then....

Man, I've had that same thought, only it had to do with buying up all rights to all Robert E. Howard properties, then issuing a multi-volume "Complete Works of REH" ... you know, totally definitive, pure-text only, with illustrations from Frazetta, Ken Kelley, Boris Vallejo ... and essays from current Howard scholars and old-timers like Glenn Lord and Roy Thomas.

**sigh**

Sorry, big topic-lurch there ... I need to say something on-topic.

Okay, I agree with M-Ship: cash will solve a lot of problems.  :)
