"From the high towers of its grand universities to the rancid alleys of its darkest slums, the City of Greyhawk awaits you. Center of magic and learning in the Flanaess, Greyhawk is also the home of powerful thieves, mighty warriors, traitorous ambassadors, and honest craftsmen.
They all await you within the pages of this information-packed boxed set.
You get four full-size, full-color maps, each depicting a different aspect of the Greyhawk campaign. Two 96-page books give you a detailed overview of the city and a closer look at its more influential citizens - and its more notoriouus criminals.
Many detailed, colorful adventure cards provide players with short adventures in the city and throughout the surrounding realms of Greyhawk."

The City of Greyhawk (2e) By Rick Rose, Carl Sargent, & Douglas Niles For 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons has been my go to urban fantasy spawl since '89. What makes it work?! All of the details & systems that have gone into The City of Greyhawk. Not only do you get the high mark NPC's but the low life scum all under one package. The Friends, Foes and Factions sourcebook provides content worth the price of the package, detailing NPC's, factions, & guilds makes The City of Greyhawk worth getting alone.
And 'The City of Greyhawk' box set is an excellent companion piece for James Ward's Greyhawk Adventure book. Seriously all of the campaign details spill over into each other.
For C&C these two resources along with the Gygax Greyhawk Folio or boxset are enough to light the way into a successful campaign from the ground up! These resources give the Greyhawk setting the depth & breath it deserves especially when dealing with C&C's system asthetics.
