Last time we looked at the actual size of the Baklunish and Suel empires (see Where were the Suel and Baklunish Empires Located? for more); and this time I would like to look at the migration routes of the two empires as they moved east. Using the empire maps I created last time and the… Continue reading The Migration Routes of the Suel and Baklunish Empires
When I first got into the World of Greyhawk I was tantalized by the Suel and Baklunish empires. These two great behemoths were the superpowers of the ancient world and they wielded magics that could, and would, reshape the world. But where were these empires located and how large were they?

So I decided… Continue reading Welcome to Greyhawk, Where You’re Always Welcome to Play
