From lost settlements on the wild shores of the Amedio Jungle to a dragon's lair in the Crystalmist Mountains, this new anthology of AD&D adventures has something for every adventurer.

Search for the fabled jewel, the Eye of Nur Dav, or seek a powerful magical item like the Helm of Selnor. You must be on your guard, however, for each of these adventures is designed to test the mettle of the experienced adventurer.

So, whether you wish to pay a visit to the archmage Bigby's humble abode, search the tombs in the Cairn Hills, or pass the time of day riddling with a sphinx, these forays into the World of Greyhawksetting will be a challenge for parties of venturesome players, who either excel at role-playing, combat and puzzle-solving, or who wish to.

Who knows, you might even win the treasures of Greyhawk.

Product History

WGR2: "Treasures of Greyhawk", by Walter Baas, Jack Barker, Louis Prosperi, Tom Prusa, and Roy Rowe, is the second book in the "WGR" series of World of Greyhawk References. It was published in June 1992.

Continuing the "WGR" Series. By 1992, the Greyhawk Wars (1991) had come and gone, but TSR had not yet fully embraced the potential of the revamped setting. As a result, some of the year's new Greyhawk books — such as WGQ1: "Patriots of Ulek" (1992) were specifically set after the war — but "Treasures of Greyhawk" could instead have been set in any era.

"Treasures of Greyhawk" was just the second "WGR" book, appearing almost two years after WGR1: "Greyhawk Ruins" (1990). Like its predecessor, it's not really a reference book. Instead it's an anthology of adventures of all sorts — following in the footsteps of similar short adventures found in Greyhawk Adventures (1988).

The adventures of "Treasures" are detailed and intended to be played in a single night each; as such, they're the most similar to the various Books of Lairs (1986-1994) that TSR was then producing. TSR tended to list the Lairs books as "References" too, so they were consistent in their practices …

Just a month after the publication of "Treasures", TSR began publishing "WGR" books that were more obviously References, the first of which was WGR3: "Rary the Traitor" (1992) — the book that really catapulted Greyhawk into a new era after the Greyhawk Wars.

Expanding Greyhawk. "Treasures of Greyhawk" is lightly set in Greyhawk. Its adventures namecheck many locations and several deities, but it doesn't provide much detail on major locales.

The various adventures are set throughout Oerth: in the jungle lands of Amedia, the City of Greyhawk, the Cairn Hills, the Crystalmist Mountains, and the Hold of the Sea Princes and on the southern shore of the Nyr Dyv. Various adventures are also linked to Heironeous, St. Cuthbert, and Zagyg.

"Bigby's Modest Home" is the adventure most replete with Greyhawk lore. It follows up on the (temporary) death of Bigby in WGA4: "Vecna Lives!" (1990) and allows the players to raid oneof his domiciles.

Expanding Wildspace. Spelljammer (1989) was sometimes criticized for not touching upon the core settings of Greyspace, Krynnspace, and Realmspace in its published adventures. "Treasures of Greyhawk" offers a rare exception: "The Neogi Nest" gives players a chance to mix together Spelljammer and Greyhawk.

About the Creators. The main authors of "Treasures of Greyhawk" all did limited work for TSR in the early '90s. Several of them also contributed to MC12: Monstrous Compendium Dark Sun Appendix: Terrors of the Desert (1992).

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
