The GH mapping project is amazing.. and slightly odd given the lack of any ongoing materials from Wizards.
[Although there are clear guidance on how to use most stuff in GH and other settings.]

However it is clear that there is a clear wish to bring back GH, but in a way that is distinctly different and unique.
There is an excellent 5e GH conversion out there.. by no other than .. well maybe .. not.. Chris Perkins*

* Chris, the author of this document is not the other Perkins guy, but is a big fan of Greyhawk anyway. Check out his reply in the comment section and his new site, Scruffy Grognard:

I am an innocent abroad when it comes to Greyhawk bad old grognard gatekeeping, it just goes to show the channel bubbles you can be in. I suppose you have to ask whether you let them own it and spoil it for you?

The maps here are tremendous, and being Anna B. Meyer you'd expect nothing less: https://www.annabmeyer.com/greyhawk-content/

I'm also liking the forward story from 576 onwards. A land in conflict and at war provides rich opportunities for adventure.

Aren't charismatic BBEGs the driving force of history in Greyhawk? Which always sound fun..
Yes, BIG characters driving agendas. Iuz is a good and recent example, causing a right to do in the heart of the Flanesse. Demi gods and HIGH levels making things happen.

Now I’m thinking about old Living Greyhawk adventures and trying to run them in PF2. Bother.
I've met some nice Greyhawkers so far who are very open and weren't fussed what you were using to run games with in Greyhawk. I continue to warm to the notion of a game, possibly even doing T1-4 to get things going. It'd be a streamer I think.

I am very very pleased to hear that there are nice Greyhawkers, that fills me with a warm sense of hope. {There are some real arses on the 'web}.

It's one I would try and sign up for, not run, and then revel in not knowing too much.

Anna B. Meyer has done a further Greyhawk map at the latter part of the timeline and is planning a further one next year. The maps and history are drawing me in. There are probably a few modules I'd want to use, and some of the Living Greyhawk material as well.

I'd probably use Blade & Spell as I want to explore a range of things and use the game as an ongoing and iterative development of the game.

Perhaps alternate Wednesdays?
