    Hardby as a home base for a Greyhawk campaign offers many adventure possibilities. In the year 590 CY, Hardby is part of the Domain of Greyhawk.  Hardby is a city beset by socio-political trade intrigues. It is a port city ostensibly ruled by its founding gynarchy. After the Greyhawk Wars, Hardby was under the control of the City of Greyhawk. Greyhawk sent troops and warships to patrol and protect the area from humanoid threats from the nearby Abbor-Alz hills.  This also offered protection from humanoid incursions from the Pomarj, an Orcish empire located South across the Woolly Bay.

    Country specific resources:
    Dungeon 109 Hardby: City of the Scorned by Paul Looby

    - The various Slavers modules
    - Danger at Darkshelf Quarry 
    - Slave Pits of the Undercity
    - Secret of the Slavers Stockade

    There is also a diverse infrastructure that allows  a dungeon master to overlay their own original, campaign concepts.
