|I gotta say that while I identify|
with them dark-skinned natives --
they've got a crappy Armor Class
and are going to get killed, man!
Paramount in the list is GAZ 1: The Grand Duchy or Karameikos. Several aspects of this setting that I love are:
- the two clashing / merging cultures that characterize the humans of that land -- the Thyatians and Traladarans;
- the Vyalia and Callari Elves (who encounter problems with the Shadow Elves during the War of the Immortals);
- the Black Eagle Barony;
- a home for the locations of modules B2: Keep on the Borderlands and B5: Horror on the Hill;
- the Grand Duke and his family and the Karameikan court (which is filled with interesting characters).
A lot of other modules in the B-series of modules and the Gazetteer series round out my list, which I should probably visit in more posts in "Mining Mystara" series.
