Greyhawk Iconics?



Jun 06, 2007 15:08:50
Does anyone know if there are any stats for some of the Greyhawk characters from the novels, such as stats for Obmi, Gord the Rogue, and others such as that? If so, can you please post a link for me, or where the stats are located if they are in a book? Thanks in advance.

Gord, Gellor, Chert, and Curley all have stats to an extent in the first Greyhawk novel, "Saga of Old City". Not all are completely fleshed out, but Gord gets a pretty thorough going over, even including some "time of life" breakdowns (ie, a thief at this point, thief-acrobat here, etc.)

Okay, I'll have to try and find a copy of that book. Thanks.

Check out this page. It's a pretty comprehensive overview of the novels, and from a cursory glance, it looks like it has what information was provided about Gord and the others in the books.

[EDIT- Also, I just remembered, Eclavdra was statted up as an Epic Character in the Epic Level Handbook.]

Modenkanian is statted in the Epic Handbook as well/

Yeah, I know about the ones in the Epic Level Handbook, including Robilar, but thanks. I'll check the website to see what they've got. Thanks for the link.

Just checked the website, it's pretty good. It may be for AD&D but I have the conversion book.

Obmi's stats are in "Against the Giants", where he first appears.

Wasn't there a Gord reprint fairly recently? By Troll Lord Games, if I am not mistaken?

The Justicar and crew (White Plume Mountain, Descent Into The Depths Of The Earth, and Queen Of The Demonweb Pits, by Paul Kidd) were detailed in Dragon #290.

Sigh. If more writers approached Greyhawk the way Kidd does, it'd be far, FAR more popular than the Misbegotten Realms. Unfortunately, WoG novels seem to be shunned by authors, with most flocking to write MR (er, FR) books instead.

I mean, c'mon! The Iconic Characters novels??? Would it be so hard to set characters from the PHB in the bloody world the PHB is set in?????

Heh, Misbegotten Realms. I'm gonna have to start using that. :D
