February 5th, 2009: I've had my 1983 World of Greyhawk boxed set
(The one with the Golden covers just so you know) for a long time.
My friend who got me into D&D first had it; how he came to possess this marvellous fantasy world I'll never know
because he moved away shortly after I began my DMing career and I was forced to get my own Greyhawk stuff. Since then
I've collected the World of Greyhawk Folio (The printing that preceeded the 83 set), a couple
From the Ashes sets (not to mention 2 sets worth of GHWars counters) and at least 2-3 other copies of the
83 Guide. However the copy of the 83 Guide that I carry with me on a daily basis(literally) to do my
DMing/cartoon research looks like it was really dug up in a cave by Rel Mord scholars. I challenge anyone to say
they've used and abused their Greyhawk materials more than I have. Hell, that copy even returned to me after a robbery
attempt! I think it's pride and nostalgia that keeps me from throwing it away and grabbing a new copy.
One of these days I'll give it a proper send off. Anyhoo sorry about that, I just had to
share. Check out the damages yourself:
