    Default Forgotten DragonHawk

    Around … 2000? … there was a WotC April Fool’s Day gag about how they were going to merge FR, DL, and GH into a single setting. Anyone have any idea where to find it, or have any recollections?

    I remember the joke from the late 90s that they were going to reveal that FR and GH were two sides of the same planet, on the old tsrinc.com site.

    I kinda remember it. Wasn't there a map? Well, in any case, fans made newer maps. I'm a bit insulted for Ansalon on how small it is compared to other continents.

    "Size matters not." And I speak as someone whose favorite D&D setting could mostly fit into Pennsylvania.

    Supposedly. But then, I'm one of those guys who might say your mile and my mile may not be the same length. Just like a martian day is not the same length of time as a Earth day. but them I'm biased.

    The biggest landmass on the right seems split between: the Known World from Basic/Expert D&D (the southern portion); Forgotten Realms's Faerun (the northwestern bit); and Greyhawk's Flanaess (northeastern bit.) If everything is to scale, the Known World is definitely bigger than Faerun and Flanaess.

    It is the spirit of the game, not the letter of the rules, which is important. Never hold to the letter written, nor allow some barracks room lawyer to force quotations from the rule book upon you [...] YOU ARE CREATOR AND FINAL ARBITER.
