A Greyhawk Guide to Blackmoor

Author: DHBoggs /

 I think it is time to put down the pen on this one.  Thank you all for your patience over the past year+ that I have been head-down buried in work on this.  Greyhawk and Blackmoor began their journey together and bringing them back in harmony, while a daunting task, has been a true pleasure.

Here is the promised Greyhawk guide to Blackmoor.

It is a dropbox link so hopefully will work for you all, but if not I will be posting it elsewhere in the coming days.

In a nutshell, this book serves as a guide to people, locations, history, and geography of Blackmoor for Greyhawk players, including a deeply researched timeline.  It brings Arneson's traditional Blackmoor back to the Flanaess where it started.


For those (like me) who enjoy having real books, I've created some print-on-demand friendly files.  This includes a cover you can upload to a service like Lulu, if you like, and have your own premium color copy printed as a book.

I'm very much looking forward to reading this. I've wanted to do something like this for years, but I lack your obvious command of the Blackmoor material. Well done!

Interestingly Quag Keep wasn’t the only publication to use the C&C Gret Kingdom map.

This is amazing and clearly the culmination of a ton of work - thank-you!

Haven’t completely read it yet, but so far I am quite impressed - my Patreon dollars sent your way have been well earned! I knew you’ve been busy with various projects (Lost Dungeons of Tonisborg being one), but had no idea this was one of them, or at least I didn’t think you were planning to release anything like this publicly.

I’ve been working on something similar, but from a slightly different angle - while yours is a guide for incorporating Blackmoor into a Greyhawk campaign, mine is for incorporating original, pre-published Greyhawk into a Blackmoor campaign. It is interesting to see how different the end result can vary by taking that slightly different direction. If mine turns out even half as good, I may release it publicly as well.

Job well done, sir!

Thank you very much, it's a fantastic job you did there.
Do you have an unannotated version of the beautiful Blackmoor map ?
