Built atop a lonely peak amid the hilly Gnarley Forest and visible from many miles away is a bizarre light house belonging to a crazy female wizard named Zendrelda. She believes without a doubt that the Greyhawk Wars are a sign that leads what she has predicted will be a Great Flood. Her lofty tower will serve as a beacon to those survivors of this future disaster. With the exception of a rare follower or two, everyone in the land thinks Zendrelda is stark raving mad. Now it turns out they could be sorely wrong.

Map of the Great Oerik Flood

This waterproof map was recently found in the sunken wreckage of a salvaged merchant vessel. The piece of controversial cartography claims to be from CY 998 and has the watermark of the Royal University of Rel Mord. Speculation abounds that it is a copy of a map pertaining to one of the latter lost volumes of the Savant-Sage's "Catalogue of the Land of Flanaess, being the Eastern Portion of the Continent Oerik, of Oerth", of which only Volume Three of Seven still survives. It is well known that in 998 CY Pluffet Smedger the Elder of Rel Mord University detailed what archived information he had from this encyclopedia into his famous Glossographies. With this map as evidence it is thus quite possible that the geography of Oerik was quite different by the end of Epoch of Magic than we initially realized. Allegations that the map is a forged hoax is still being debated by scholars and theologians as we speak.
