30 Day D&D Challenge - Day Four - Give Me the World
Day Four is "Favorite Game World".
This really is a no brainer - the answer is "The World of Greyhawk". And not one of the boxed sets either, but the original folio.
Back in my High School years, the group I ran decided they wanted to take over the Wild Coast when they hit name level. We didn't have much in the way of rules for running battles and campaigns on the scale of major wars, so I had to scratch some rules out by hand. I wish I could find those rules now. I'm sure they sucked, but 17 and willing to take a chance and say "here ya go - lets do some strategic battles with these rules and random tables I just wrote up" impresses the 46 year old me ;)
They did conquer much of the Wild Coast, but they were never able to hold it. Greyhawk to the north didn't look kindly on a new a powerful southern neighbor, and the Pomarj certainly didn't like the happenings to their north.
Besides, it wasn't called "The Wild Coast" for nothing.
Good times :)
