A Return

Those who arrive at the end of the journey are not those who began.

Trojan Horse
I’m back from vacation! Where'd I go? Turkey. Why would I go to Turkey? To see Istanbul, Gallipoli, Troy, the Ionian coast, Ephesus, Antalya, Cappadocia, among other places and sites.
Did you miss me? I expect not, but I hope you did. I pray I find you well!
I expect you’ve kept up with your Greyhawk reading while I was away. I did give several suggestions where you might go to get your fix in my absence, each probably already known by you.
Sadly, I’m not ready to resume posting, yet. It may take me a while to get back into the swing of things, so bear with me. So, as per before I left on holiday, here are a few more sites of interest: 

·        AnnaMeyer’s map. You must be aware of Anna’s decades’ long labour of love. She has other things of interest on her site, new adventure modules from dearly departed Len Lakofka, compiled, edited, and released by certain notables within the Greyhawk community.
·        GreyhawkOnline. Kristoph Nolan’s website, where you can find the Greyhawk Wiki, and the Oerth Journal.
·        Maldin’s Greyhawk. Denis Tetreault (Melkot) has been a setting luminary for decades.
·        The Grey League. Thom (Oronir) has both a blog and a YouTube channel.
·        Canonfire! No introduction required concerning this website, I expect.
·        Legends and Lore. On YouTube. All things Greyhawk, with Jay Scott (Lord Gosumba), Mike Bridges (Mortellan), and Anna Meyer hosting.
·        Gabbin’ at Lord Peak’s Haven. Also on YouTube. Jay Scott’s other talk show.

Back to the Grind
A word of warning: Summer approaches and I can't guarantee that I'll keep up with my past pace of weekly posts. It was easy before. COVID struck, we all hunkered down, we all grasped at what we could to keep our minds busy while we waited for the restrictions to lift. They did, eventually. I did a few road trips, nothing crazy, nothing too long, and those were few and far between, so I was able to keep enough posts prepped to not lapse. I expect, though, I hope, anyway, to be a little more mobile this summer, being retired. Who knows what the future will hold. Only time will tell. I'll do my best, certainly.
Anyway, this is just a public service announcement, informing you all that I am alive and well, if a little jet lagged at present.
Back to the grind, as we say. Those blog posts don't write themselves. Unless I begin using Chat GPT, that is.... Just kidding. What would be the fun in that?

The Art:


  1. Turkey! Wow nevermind the usual Id be interested in reading a post about that trip! Has seeing places like Troy inspired you for anything GH related?

  2. Glad you enjoyed your trip. Not ready to resume posting? Not sure of the regularity of posts during the summer? That's all fine. As far as I'm concerned, occasional posts are still fantastic.
