For Christmas I grabbed a copy of The Living Greyhawk Gazetteer. Very nice resource. I grabbed the book mostly because I started a new campaign in the middle of January, using Greyhawk as the campaign world.
All of my players are tied to Olidammara in some way - two worship him, one is a mercenary in the employee of Olidamarra's temple and the fourth worships Rudd.
LGG mentions that Rudd has been imprisoned (or, rather, possibly imprisoned). I'm looking for more info on that. Why, how, when, by whom, etc? My campaign is in the early stages, but so far I'm gearing it towards the players being key in Rudd's rescue, and I was hoping to learn a bit more about the situation.
Thanks for any assistance!

He and Olidammara (who rescued Rudd) have been great enemies ever since.

|#5ZherogJan 29, 2004 21:23:27||Is there info on how she was freed, or is it just one of those "background" things in the campaign?|

The player Rob Kuntz of the Robilar character has a write up of the event which differs from the living greyhawk campaign as to whom the demigods were as it happened in Gygax's home campaign. The whole incident happened back in the early days of D&D before there was an actual published setting probably early to mid-1970's. The published material differs of course from the campaign as a lot of the DemiGods became major deities in the setting. But the general gist remains the same no matter who the deities were. |

Imprisonment of powerful beings is a common thread throughout the campaign. If you want Rudd to be imprisoned again go for it. Plenty of BBEGs out there who may want to recreate Zagyg's transformation.
