    Great post, OP! Especially the map, for me that was an eye-opener. All that territory still to be explored in-game. Thanks!

    Smile A cracking read

    Awesome stuff. I constantly moan to my gaming pals who skip through dialogue while I'm trying to work out what's going on! Keep it coming!

    This is probably the best thread I've seen in the DDO forums to date.
    +1, OP.

    More please?!?!?!?!

    Excellent background story!

    I admit, I could piece together a little of it with as long as I've played, but now I'm looking at what I'm playing in more than a character-centric sense.

    Great thread! Actually interesting to read.

    It's a shame threads like these get buried because of the pointless drama threads and petty bickering over loot rules, who should carry what spells, how other people should play/behave, etc etc.

    I concur with the above posters saying this is a fascinating thread. It's still a work in progress, but I suggest it be placed in the Hall of Fame forum.

    Oh man, this has been a while.

    It's been a pretty busy year (My last edit was September), and due to RL stuff I've been focusing less on DDO as a whole. When I do get free time on the computer, I usually prefer playing DDO to writing (the last big chunk was done when I was doing my volunteer stuff in Peru, with internet access but no DDO), so I apologize for not having finished this eons ago.

    Once Summer hits, I'll see what more I can do. I'll probably be spending a healthy chunk of it doing more volunteer stuff, but it's still unclear whether or not that'll be better or worse for the odds of me actually getting more of this done (depends on what I end up doing and where).

    So feel free to let this get covered up again, it'll be a while before stuff happens :P

    Edit: also, hopefully, I'll put some more work into formatting when I get back around to this. I'd forgotten how painful it was looking through this.

    Great thread.

    Bladedge started on a quest arc timeline where he groups the quests by how they intertwine. It might be a great resource for you as you continue this thread.

    Yeah. I just wish that was there back when I was starting this thing :P

    So, apparently this has been placed in the Hall of Fame. I now feel infinitely more guilty for having left it unfinished so long. If this was a motivational ploy, it will probably work.

    Sounds like an interesting project. I wish you the best of luck and I'll try to keep an eye on it.

    Great!!! but now our dear Turbine forget the Eberron setting to center in Forgotten Realms. Great job, translating it to Spanish for my website for my readers. Keep the good work.

    I speak spanish, if you want help help with that. You'd probably need to proofread though.

    Default The Map...

    Wow! I never thought that this much of Xen'drik was unreachable! I want to explore it!

    Turbine, please give your fans ALL of Xen'drik...

    By the Host! Dar Qat is down there? On the southwest side of Xen'drik?

    By the way, amazing job on the lore gathering!

    [note, I suspect that almost all Greyhawk material was created after he was forced out. I have the original setting, but it is little more than a huge map with small hints as to what each nation is.

    Forgotten Realms may be TSR's idea of post-Gygax generic fantasy (and ever so useful to any DM addicted to NPC-ex-machina), but Greyhawk is something else.
    Hmmm. Maybe its time to dig out my Greyhawk and Blackmoor original pamphlets (reprints) and see how boring they are...

    Necro bump. What a wonderful resource. This is great!
