    Nice!

    As for me, it would be as follows:-

    Q1. What is your favorite realm or region in the World of Greyhawk setting?

    The Wild Coast. So many factions/powers facing off across the Woolly Bay & potential for all kinds of shenanigans.

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity which one would it be?

    Not sure about this, but Farlanghan the Traveller sounds like a good option.

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?

    I'm with you, on WG7. But, assuming you have already bagsied it, I'll go with something out of left field and say Hidden Shrine of Tomaochan. If it was re-written now it could expand so much more on an out of the way area of Greyhawk that wasn't so wrapped up in the aftermath of the Twin Cataclysms & the Suel/Bakluni/Flan/Oeridian conflicts

    Q4: You're putting together an all-star Greyhawk NPC group. Who is your number one pick?

    Oonga! Oonga! Oonga! Oonga! (continue ad infinitum).

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?

    The Machine of Lum The Mad. Dials to spin, buttons to press, levers to pull, flashing lights, bells, whistles. It's just an insane activity centre!

    Oonga! Now, that's an original answer! Happy

    Hmm...

    Q1. What is your favorite realm or region in the World of Greyhawk setting?

    All of them. I have highlighted some regions in my campaign, but I don't really have a favorite - they all abound with endless potential.

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity, which one would it be?

    Somebody: "There are lower planar nasties running amok everywhere! What are we to do?!"
    Some god: "Here."
    Somebody: "What's this now? A shepherd's staff? Are you daft?! What the heck is this supposed to do?!"

    A god that gifts mortals with a curled stick that can banish every single lower planar nasty on the prime material plane with a flourish (take a lesson St. Cuthbert, Heironeous, Trithereon, etc.)? And he is the personification of peace, serenity, and reason (who couldn't use a triple dose of that)? Sounds rather pleasant. Yes. I'll be that guy. Besides, I would love to be able to make excellent homemade pastas and sauces too! Happy


    [I almost said Norebo, because...um...Wee Jas. Wink That would just be all about the drama though, so I'll take a pass on that one. Priorities, they are in order.]

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?

    WG7 Castle Greyhawk. A legendary site, portrayed as if by the writers of of National Lampoon. Tragic.

    Q4: You're putting together an all-star Greyhawk NPC group. Who is your number one pick?

    Sir Robilar; pre-Rary the Traitor. Anyone whose usual day would include going solo into the Temple of Elemental Evil is probably someone you'd want to take along almost anywhere. Surely never a dull moment, and he comes with a bonus Quij!

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?

    The Tripartite Binder/Theoparts. Just to keep it safe. I'm totally not going to use it. Totally. Evil Grin

    Mine were back in Round 8 https://greyhawkery.blogspot.com/2020/10/ring-of-five-questions-round-8.html, but here they are:

    Q1. What is your favorite realm or region in the World of Greyhawk setting?

    A1. Verbobonc, particularly the little village an indeterminate number of miles away, where we kicked off our adventuring career. We were poorly mounted, badly equipped and had no large sums of cash...

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity which one would it be?

    A2. I haven't really considered them all that much, to be honest, but since you ask, I'll go with Zilchus.
    [Show me the money!]

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?
    A3. The City of Greyhawk [boxed set]. I recently pulled that off the shelf after having read through the first few Gord the Rogue novels and thought: "It's not like this at all."

    [What I had meant there, is that the boxed set made it seem a lot shinier than what I had envisioned reading the Gord novels.]

    Q4: You're putting together an all-star Greyhawk NPC group. Who is your number one pick?
    A4: Lord Robilar, come on down.

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?
    A5. The Mighty Servant of Leuk-O. I mean: what's not to like about a magi-tech mecha?

    *narrows eyes* You may be the first to pick an item tied to Tharizdun. Hmmm.

    Otherwise good call on Robilar! Bonus Quij is a good idea.

    Celene

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity which one would it be?

    Ehlonna ... though Mayaheine is a close second.

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?

    Oy. This is a tough one. Rary the Traitor.

    Larissa Hunter, Magister of Dyvers

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?

    Invulnerable Coat of Arnd. I always wanted to get this item as a player, so of course I never did!

    Theala—and others—how would you revise / redo Rary the Traitor?

    Q1. What is your favorite realm or region in the World of Greyhawk setting?

    I've always been particularly fascinated by the Grand Duchy of Geoff, showing how old and new cultures might blend together in the modern world.

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity which one would it be?

    Rao, as he probably matches my personality the most.

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?

    From The Ashes. I'd change it to the version I depicted in my Canonfire writings and Oerth Journal #33. I'm much more interested in a "world half full" where there's still hope and a refusal to give up, rather than a world where everything seems to be on a slow slope to hell.

    Q4: You're putting together an all-star Greyhawk NPC group. Who is your number one pick?

    Mordenkainen. I've always imagined him as a Byronic hero who has plans within plans, and who is constantly plagued by the responsibility he's taken up, and whether he should be doing what he does.

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?

    Probably the Crown, Scepter and/or Orb of Might.

    Q1. What is your favorite realm or region in the World of Greyhawk setting?

    Old South Province (including Iron League nations)...

    Q2. If you could actually be one Greyhawk deity which one would it be?

    Trithereon - So much freedom and such a heavy burden to deliver it to others...

    Q3. You have one wish. Which Greyhawk module or accessory would you do over or fix?

    Doomgrinder - such a disappointment almost anything folks thought it would be would be better than what the adventure presented...

    Q4: You're putting together an all-star Greyhawk NPC group. Who is your number one pick?

    Melf Brightflame - Pre-eminent example of the standard D&D elf...

    Q5. If you could possess one artifact or relic from Greyhawk lore, which would it be?

    Kuroth’s Quill - I’m sure that I am the one that can handle infinite wishes for the common good ;-) ...
