Setting Details

Note to players: This page will harbor all the setting details (history, geography, etc) and major events (wars, coups, etc). It is sparse now, but will be updated as the game progresses. If you learn something in game and I do not add it here, feel free to update the page appropriately.

The current year is 872 AG. Refer to the map tab for a detailed map of Greyhawk. Note that the Duchy of Urnst, Bright Desert, and Wild Coast are now one land called Gallancz. This domain stretches from Dyvers, south to Highport, and as far east as the Nesser River. The region labeled Iuz is now called The Forsaken. The map is otherwise functionally identical.
