Maybe there could be a way you could find and play organized games like Living Greyhawk or Xen'drik Expeditions online through the Game Table tool?
RPGA needs an airtight foolproof system for character continuity across editions.
Do not kill Living Greyhawk.
It seems a bad omen when on the D&D home page, the RPGA section of the lefthand sidebar links to Eberron, Forgotten Realms, D&D Miniatures . . . but not Living Greyhawk.
What I don't understand is why WotC keeps coming out with level-bumped campaigns.
Quote from "Inquest Gamer"..
And yes, Wizards does recommend you begin new campaigns with Fourth Edition. “It’s not going to be as huge a jump,” as from Second Edition to Third Edition, said Slavicsek, “but there’s enough changing in the core system of how we are doing classes and races and characters that we’re not even gonna attempt it—we’re just telling you it’s better to start over.”
This does not sound good for Living Greyhawk at all. Considering its been far and away the most successful campaign the RPGA has ever run, the seemingly inevitable loss of LG will be a terrible terrible mistake.
That doesn't mean that LG is going to go away, it just means that they're going to make you ditch your characters.
It doesn't mean that it isn't going away either. And it would be the perfect opportunity for Wizards to give the executioner's axe to a campaign they regularly expressed disdain for.
I think it would be a big mistake on Wizards' part. If LG got canned I could see lots of it's players migrating to Arcanis as they could stick with 3.5
I fear legal crap pulled to destroy Arcanis and Blackmoor.
For all we know, Hasbro might wind up giving the axe to WOTC. I remember Ryan Dancey or someone else recently making a comment that if 4th edition came out this soon that the folks at WOTC should be polishing thier resumes as it would be a sign that Hasbro is looking to make a quick cashout of the company. For a long time, I've been wondering if the Hasbro acquisition of WOTC/TSR would wind up like the Quaker's near fatal bungling of Snapple.
I like LG a lot. Starting at level 1 would not be the end of the world.
Living Greyhawk – will be coming to a triumphant close next year, and they will be starting fresh with a new batch of characters and players. This will be discussed tonight or tomorrow
I like LG a lot. Starting at level 1 would not be the end of the world. Them scrapping it would really suck.
I believe they do the level bump campaigns because LG already exists so there is no need to have another like it. If I am wrong and they start it over as a level bump campaign than that will be the same as killing it.
Living Greyhawk as we know it is going away next year.
The new flagship RPGA campaign will be Living Forgotten Realms.
So, LG is in for a total reboot after next year.
Let's hope WotC attempts to cater to the very hardcore RPGA players immersed in LG.
Come on, throw us some frickin bones here, folks.
