EN World Review – The Unofficial Living Greyhawk Bandit Kingdoms Summary by Casey Brown

bandit kingdoms summary cover finalHere it is, Gentle Readers… in just one short week, a mere seven days away, the “best four days of gaming” will begin in Indianapolis when GenCon 2012 throws open its doors to the thronging masses of gamers!  I cannot deny that I am literally counting the hours to this years’ GenCon, and I’ve already got most of my timeslots filled with demos, seminars, and interviews that I hope to be reporting on this year.  I’ll be posting my itinerary next Monday, and hopefully I’ll be seeing some of you at the convention!

But that is still a week away, and today we have other matters to discuss.  I have finally gotten around to reviewing a composition by Casey Brown about one of more active regions of the RPGA’s Living Greyhawk campaign – The Unofficial Living Greyhawk Bandit Kingdoms Summary!  This book offers both historical insight into the eight year RPGA Network campaign, as well as summaries from the various adventures and mini-campaigns written by members living in Texas and Oklahoma – the land of the Bandit Kingdoms.

Review of the Unofficial Living Greyhawk Bandit Kingdoms Summary by Casey Brown

I can definitely recommend this book to fans of the Greyhawk setting, whether or not you articipated in the RPGA events of not.  For DMs there is some great material in the book about the Bandit Kingdoms which can potentially enhance a Greyhawk “From the Ashes” Campaign.  In many respects, the book is also a tribute to the fans of Greyhawk and 3rd/3.5 Edition who lost not only their favorite Living Campaign, but also their chosen game edition when 4E came out.

Personally, I wish I had participated in the RPGA campaign back then, and reinforces the hope I have that WotC will not do this to yet another game system, but will re-consider its plans and start supporting all D&D editions and content for all the fans…

So don’t forget the petition:

Wizards of the Coast: Support all current and past editions of Dungeons & Dragons!

So until next blog… I wish you happy gaming!
