View Full Version : Questions about a few locations in the world of Greyhawk

2013-03-20, 11:01 AM
TL;DR - Does anyone have any info, or can anyone refer me to modules (any edition) that include the following towns: Sheernobb, Ostverk, Yamymil & the Emerald Bridge, Enstad (Capital of Celene).

My questions stem from the current campaign I'm running from module T1-4 The Temple of Elemental Evil, but my players are going off the rails a bit. They are travelling to a larger town to sell spoils and I couldn't get them to bite on going to Verbobonc. They've decided to head south into Celene, and to the capital city of Enstad. I'll try to detail what I already know, and hopefully there'll be others who've played in this area of Greyhawk. I don't care what edition of D&D your knowledge comes from - the module we're playing is 1st edition, and we're using 3.5e rules (I'm converting things either beforehand or on-the-fly). So if you know modules that hook in to the area south of Hommlet down to Enstad, recommendations from any edition are welcome.

Now, to make this wall of text even longer, here is what I know:

Area map (http://ghmaps.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Sq59v9.jpg). You can see Hommlet labeled far West, nearly dead center.

Heading on the road south, the first town is Sheernobb. From what I can find on Google, this town was used in a RPGA module only.

Continuing further down the road is Ostverk. I found this map (http://cdn.obsidianportal.com/map_images/765067/Village_of_Ostverk.jpg) and this description (http://kingdomofmass.com/viewtopic.php?t=1178&sid=c785e12e654090c5e5ffebe875d7f346): "This small village lies within the territory of the Fey of Celene. [...] It is governed by an elven mayor [...] and has a permanent garrison of 50 elven warriors [...] and it is their task to prevent unauthorized entry into the Kingdom of Celene." I think this may be homebrew and/or not era-appropriate. The Greyhawk map (which seems well researched) shows the border of Celene halfway between hear and the next town.

Next location to the south is Yamymil and the Emerald Bridge. I can't find anything on this.

After this, it seems to be a long trip to the southwest/west (heading off onto this map (http://ghmaps.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Sq58v6.jpg)) to finally reach the capital of Celene, Enstad. I can also hardly find anything on Enstad! There are some population stats (7K residents, mostly elves, no humans). But I can't find any map or other details.

Any help is very, very much appreciated!
