Reading about Greyhawk in old school forums is kind of like reading about a religion with many different sects. I have found it fascinating and often inspiring.
Dragonsfoot: Talk to me about Gloams
In the Gord the Rogue books, specifically in City of Hawks, Gord travels to the Shadowplane and encounters evil beings known as “gloams”. The leader of these monsters, called Imprimus, is referred to as a vampire lich.
Does anyone know anything more definitive about Gloams and specifically Imprimus, such as a monster description and/or stats?

Vecna’s not from Greyhawk.
Reddit: Greyhawk synopsis from the upcoming Tales of the Yawning Portal
Greyhawk, the pinnacle of D&D settings, is reduced to a few blurbs here and there in WotC’s new supplements.
Sad state of affairs, really.

One thing I’m looking for in between episodes is how much freedom I have as a GM to frame the scene. Did we end on a cliffhanger that means we have to start in the very next moment? Was Rich taking his character into motion, going about the next item on his task list? Is there a way I can prod at a bunch of beliefs all at once? Is there a consequence to an action that should hit the table?
