Power belongs to those who take it or so the axiom goes with things moving apace since last blog entry here. Let's take a moment too get into how the Borderland was weakened & her borders made porious. And here's where Treasures of Greyhawk comes into focus.
Let's take it back to B2 Keep on the Borderlands By Gary Gygax. The Caves of Chaos are filled with lots of loot from around the Keep & the lands of the Keep. Why?! Because the forces of Chaos have been instructed by the cults of elemental evil to keep one step ahead of the forces of Law.
The forces of Chaos want to weaken & humilate Law not destroy them outright. They work in broad strokes & quickly to overtake thier enemies.
We see this in Adventurer, Conqueror, King's AX2: Secrets of the Nethercity by Alexander Macris,& Newton Grant.
We see sparkles of the power of Law through treasures like the rod of elemental spheres in AX2. And more of Chaos's machinations within AX1: The Sinister Stone of Sakkara by Matthew Skail & Alexander Macris.
Because AX1: The Sinister Stone of Sakkara by Matthew Skail & Alexander Macris is a homage to B2 Keep on the Borderland.
Treasures of Greyhawk's adventures played out could be the adventure run to recover those points of Law's magical protection!
According to the Greyhawk Adventures publication wiki entry; "
The PC's will be treading on the foundations & movers of power of Greyhawk's power. This will also enable the PC's too possibly become part of that power. And this is reflected in Keith H. Eisenbeis review of Greyhawk Adevenutures for the March/April issue of White Wolf magazine. Mr Eisenbeis stated,"He stated that anyone could find use in it and that "This product is certainly worth buying for those who run Greyhawk campaigns ". And this is something that I certainly agree with. But there's far more to slide of Chaos & horror into a point of power on Greyhawk.
