Greyhawk was FULL of weird sh*t

Wayne Rossi linked to Mike Mornard's comment on the odd74 forum that "Greyhawk was FULL of weird sh*t", and observed that over the years Greyhawk has earned an unfair reputation as vanilla fantasy.

Look at the "Trick and Traps" or the "Monstrous Tricks and Combination Monsters" sections of Supplement 1, for example! That's certainly wackier than most of the Greyhawk material we saw coming out of TSR in the AD&D era. I remember getting the AD&D Greyhawk box, and finding it pretty boring. Maybe I should take a second look....
