    No, but it does use a Greyhawk proper noun. That's better than nothing. :)

    Cheers!

    For a generic rules supplement, any Greyhawk material would be a bonus. Heroes of Battle is as generic as they come, offering tips and tricks for DMs wanting to run PCs during war scenarios. It doesn' ...

    One thing I disagree on is the status of "adventurers". There seems to be an assumption here that they are of the lower classes.

    That may be the case for their early career, but it is certainly not ...

    Note, my answer relies upon 3rd edition rules.

    It really shouldn't be that hard. Multiclass spell-users will need some tinkering, but the 3.5e rules also aid such conversions.

    Vampire Thrommel is brilliant design.

    * Canonical Greyhawk does not have Thrommel rescued.
