The North Journey is set in TSR’s World of Greyhawk from the 1983 box set, and begins just before Richfest in Common Year 577, two years after events recorded in the Catalogue and three-and-a-half years after the disappearance of the Prince of Furyondy. The later events of the official TSR/WOTC Greyhawk Wars and From the Ashes haven’t yet happened, and probably won’t – I had a different story arc in mind 25 years ago when I was first developing this campaign, and I’ve no reason to change now.
Play is centered largely in the western portion of the Flannæss, especially Keoland straight north through Perrenland, though right now significant adventuring is taking place in White Plume Mountain, located a day’s ride northeast of the Free City of Hardby. What else will be thrown at the party is my secret and/or under construction, with a combination of my own adventure scenarios and modified AD&D modules.

To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, edit this page and take a look.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to the this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: The Text To Display
Linking to characters and items
To link to a character or item, use the same double square brackets, but also use a colon. The text to put in the brackets is the slug for the character. Here is an example:
If your character has no slug, you can use the ID number, like so:.
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, you can just use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy!
Linking to characters and items with different text
Just like wiki links, it’s possible to link to a character or item using alternate text. Here’s an example:
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
