    Article suggestions!

    Waaaaay back when, on April 13th, 1996, Iquander posted a list of
    possible upcoming articles in OJ, as well as a list of possible
    topics and articles, which I've expanded slightly -- and which
    are open to anyone who wants to take one and run with it.
    Obviously, this list is only a starting point.

    Blackmoor.

    I would love to see more on that and the black ice.

    Recommended Articles for OJ:


    "The Knightly Orders of the Flaness"

    Being a treatise on the said orders, with prestige classes for 3.5 and kits for 2nd Ed. OAD&D could use a special restriction-less dual classing for Fighters/Rangers/Paladins to incorporate the knightly orders(or each could be presented as an actual class, where a character starts as a squire/groom and progresses through the ranks of the order- ie. level titles). The Knight Protectors of the Great Kingdom have already been covered. How about the Knights of the Hart or the belled cavalry of Furyondy, Nyrond, Keoland, and the remaining Knights of Holy Shielding, just to name a few?

    "Monastaries of the Flaness"

    Being a teatise on the head monastaries and monks of the various cultures. Stats for the various monks would center more on cultural differences, as the monks of deities from the same culture would have many similarities. Thus, the simple solution is to create templates for each of the four cultures: Flan, Oeridian, Baklunish, Seuloise. The Scarlet Brotherhood monk could serve as the basis for Seul monks. I'd prefer 3.5 stats, but OAD&D or 2e would be fine as well(and easy to convvert over in any event). Each culture has at least a single deity that exemplifies the monkish traditions to a greater or lesser degree.

    Those are the two I'd like to see the most. I'd also be willing to help out on the project. Just PM me if you want help, for any format/edition.

    OERTH AND ALTAR

    Hi all,

    I would like to see much more of

    OERTH AND ALTAR

    I am really glad that this feature is back because it is very helpful and has always been very well made.

    With regard to the gods and religions I would most like to see featured:

    RAO
    OSPREM

    Cheers,
    Henry

    I have ebeen desperately trying to find something like this. The only thing I've come across is Dragon #298. Is there any available resource that features this? I'm looking for something beyond just Drow. I'd like to see a resource that has more information about the Underdark itself, but for the Greyhawk setting.

    Amaril, the 2e box set Night Below is basically Greyhawk content written by Carl Sargent without the official GH logo. It's an extended underdark game without drow playing a large role, and may be what you're looking for....

    And don't forget the "Knights of the Swan". I have looked for information about them but found little.

    hey Cebrion,

    Is that order related to the County of Urnst? I didn't find mention of it in Urnst's LGG entry but think of no other likely site for such an order of knighthood -- based mostly on Urnst's heraldry.

    Not sure where all else they're written about, but the Knights of the Swan are mentioned on the County of Urnst LG site. So in answer to your question, yes.

    Hey, Nell

    Pardon the dumb question but are you the same Nellisir from the AOL discussion boards of the mid-90s? If so, do you keep up with any of the old guys (QSamantha, Aria 13, Chaos28, Oeridian, Iquander, etc.)?

    Nelisir,

    I was working on an article about Tzunk, Yagrax and the Isles of Woe, for possible submssion to the OJ. However, as discussed in my recent, this is changing rapidly in LG. What are your thoughts on this and should I continue with such an article.

    hey there OldGuardX, Nellisir is indeed the same fellow as on the old AOL boards. As you probably know, Iquander is the current Editor of Dungeon magazine. I've not seen mention of the others for quite a while.

    That's the second time in a month someone's called me old (it would be the first, but I obviously don't check these forums this often).

    Yes, and essentially no. Nothing outside of running into people at the GT chats on Thursday nights, alas.

    Cheers
    Nell

    (Actually, I keep in touch with Rlarue -- we met via the GH boards and I played in a campaign he ran for a few years, but he wasn't extremely active on the boards)

    Anced - You might be better off discussing this with the current editor (I'm just an Old Editor, which means I wander around and make all sorts of vague promises and don't follow up), but that said, write it.

    The OJ is traditionally edition-blind and canon-blind -- YOUR version of Tzunk, Yagrax, and the Isles are as valid as Iquander's (or even Gygax's, though I may be burned in the Pale for that). I don't know what the LG is up to now, but who cares? If your idea wasn't more interesting than theirs, you wouldn't be interested in writing it.

    Cheers
    Nell.

    I remember RLarue. Good poster but I never met him.

    Happy The times changed quickly, once WoG came back from the dead. Around 2000-2001, I dropped out altogether... I recently Googled some of my old posts and nothing came back. Sad Sigh.... Still, those were fun times!
