ciao guys, as it previously happened with a pscape auction, last week i found within a greyhawk lot auction some pages that seems a manuscript...
what lead me thinking that it could be interesting to show you are some concerns about the item:

1) paper size format is US and not european (and i bought it from an italian fellow indeed)... therefore it has been printed in US at least...
2) i never played in greyhawk but, i never heard the names reported there... afaik greyhawk deities should be those of the 3.X edition core books, isnt it?

could you help me in reckoning this document? any clue about it???  :roll:

It's definitely not Greyhawk.  The Greyhawk world is spelled Oerth...not Urth.  I don't recognize the names of the deities either.  I dont know much about Gary Gygax's work after AD&D but from what I have read he uses similar names in his other worlds.  Oerth, Aerth, Arth (I think  :roll: ) and such.  This could possibly be from one of his other campaign worlds but from what I can tell just by looking at the small amount of info for "Eltin, Supreme God of Heaven" it looks like whoever created it used AD&D type statistics.  Looks like a home-brew to me.

I recognize Tempus as a the Thieves World figure (adopted into the FR core pantheon), and Zurg (from Fifth Element), but that's.  Per KoP, it's definitely not GH, and I don't think it's anything else that Gary wrote either for DJ or LA (though I'm not an expert on those latter systems by any means).  

My guess would also be someone's homebrew materials.

Just noticed that Bartok is the god of death:  perhaps the creator's not a fan of Russian composers? :D
