The original scan has small pencil marks and notes written in the book that were not cleaned up for the PDF or the print version. See pg. Is there no oversight when these booklets are scanned in? As for all those wondering about poster maps, there are none. This is a print on demand booklet.
We didn't have enough table space for it; it had to go on the wall or the floor. The book is printed in small type. It gives you a headache if you are trying to study some aspect of Greyhawk for any length of time. Even if you don't use this particular world, it will help you get started on one of your own.
In his review, Jeff Sieken was generally impressed, mentioning its colorful folder, the outside covers of which are "adorned with the numerous coats-of-arms of the various states, cities and factions chronicled within the gazetteer". Burke's review, he remarked that he was glad to finally have "a universal constant" in the form of an official campaign setting.
He stated that the idea behind the product was "to provide a setting for a fantasy campaign, a coherent place where fantastic things could happen", and that although The World of Greyhawk was based on Gygax's own campaign, the publication "was made deliberately vague in many areas so that individual DMs could impress their own ideas and personalities upon it". Nobody here ever gave it any thought, because it doesn't matter. The boxed set features a cover by Jeff Easley. The same four-color map of the Flanaess from the folio edition is also included.
The edition adds information on the gods of the setting, weather, tables for place-of-birth, encounter tables for the various kingdoms, and suggestions for scenarios. All the content of the folio edition is included in it, with a few changes. For example, the rulers of countries, which had originally only had titles, were given names, and populations were given to within a thousand, rather than as rough estimates.
The section regarding geographical features is reorganized and expanded. Gygax increased the four yearly festivals from six days to seven days; this increases the length of the calendar year from days to days and means each calendar date now always falls on the same day of the week every year.
New material was also added, mainly culled from the Dragon magazine articles published in the previous three years. There are also two one page maps, one of regional alignments good, evil, etc. One fifth of the Guide is devoted to the deities of Greyhawk ; in addition to the nineteen gods introduced in Gygax's Dragon articles, another thirty-one gods are added, for a total of fifty deities.
However, only twenty-two are given a full description of their appearance, areas of influence, and worshipers. Nineteen of those are the original Greyhawk deities from Gygax's Dragon articles; the other three given full descriptions are Raxivort whose full description had been previously published in issue No.
Combat statistics and specific powers for these twenty-two deities are also included, but placed in a separate appendix in the Glossography booklet.
If you are downloading for the map, you may want to do the print plus pdf.
Then you could take the pdf to Kinkos for a full size map. I prefer print products so I did not download the PDFs and cannot comment on the product.
Thanks Wizards of the Coast. For example the first two north west scans are missing the west east hexes along row Is it possible the company no longer has a good quality original and are not even willing to try to download one off a fan to use as a second-best "master" to scan from?
Scott W March 16, am UTC Will it have the full size maps printed out or just page sized pieces in the bound book? Big map or no big map? That's at least half the reason for downloading this.
I'd prefer the Darlene maps of original Greyhawk. I cannot say enough great things about the Dungeon map version though as a map of Greyhawk it is beautiful. I just dislike the Nation-changes or I'd be satisfied with that option as quality of scan is good too. I keep hearing "the drift isn't bad" and the like - but if I am to pay for one vs scanning my original - I'd be doing it to get a GOOD map.
Not a "close" to good. When I get it, I will review the production for everyone. I own 2 original versions of this folio and 2 more of the boxed set but I bought this for two reasons. As the things I missed the 1st time around come back in POD i'll get them.
