       Additional Information  
      "This book is the sequel to "Saga of Old City" and picks up a couple of years later after Gord and his friends discovered the first of three keys or artifacts which will unleash the dreaded evil god named Tharizdun. The book details the fight to obtain the second key which leads to a chase across the Flanaess. Many forces are at work in this mad dash to control the face of the planet including Oerth's own demigod the evil Iuz as well as the Scarlet Brotherhood. Many important figures pop up in this book including the Catlord, Mordenkainen, Melf (as in Melf's Acid Arrow), and the circle of eight. The fate of the world tends to draw a party. The storyline recounted in this novel basically tells the story behind the Greyhawk Wars up to the fall of the Horned Society and the takeover of the Bandit Kingdoms. For those who play in the Greyhawk world, this novel could definitely liven up a campaign or just provide an interesting background into what has happened before.
