A revised version the Living Greyhawk Campaign Standards v.7.5 is now available. New rules regarding teleconference play, and opening up Geoff globally as the default home for regionless players necessitated these updates. This updated version of the LGCS is effective immediately and available for download from the campaign documents section on the Living Greyhawk welcome page.
Geoff Goes Global
Living Greyhawk has answered the plight of its homeless. Geoff is now the default home region for anyone living, or stationed, outside the existing regions. Whether you live and play in Caracas, Moscow, Baghdad, Lagos, or beyond, choose Geoff as your home region. Then enjoy running and playing Geoff regional and The Sheldomar Valley metaregional adventures in addition to cores. As always, appeals to change an existing home region are handled by the appropriate regional triad.
Call in to your game. New guidelines are included in the LGCS allowing a teleconference play option. Teleconferencing is considered online play and subject to the following guidelines. Regional and metaregional adventures require both the GM and more than 50% of the players participating in the session to be in one physical location within the region or metaregion, respectively. Your registered RPGA address must be within the region or metaregion, respectively, to play a regional or metaregional adventure.
The adventures must be ordered and reported just like any other RPGA event. The GM must mail or otherwise deliver the signed ARs to the participants. His signature must appear on the paperwork.
