Mar 15th, 2007: It's about time I address something that has been brewing on the Wizards Greyhawk boards for probably as long as I've done this comic. That is namely the subject of petitioning Wizards to make a true campaign setting book like Forgotten Realms and Eberron. Petitions are well-meaning but I'm skeptical of their success especially when it concerns the game industry. The way I see Wizards behaving, you would need to convince them it was THEIR IDEA to relaunch Greyhawk, not the raving demands of a small but vocal forum community. Would I like to have a nice 'official Greyhawk' hardback book? Well duh. Yes. But in the current climate of ridiculous 3.5 powergaming rules, I'm not so sure I would want Greyhawk reimagined by Wizard's finest (insert tounge in cheek). What's worse is the Greyhawk fanbase is so divided there is no way they could make everyone happy even if they did make a new book. It's a catch-22 for me. Who knows how this will all turn out. Hopefully the gods of Greyhawk are keeping up on current events....
