Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk

I've just finished reading this lengthy campaign adventure this morning and it's gone straight to the top of my "must-run" pile. Erik Mona, James Jacobs and Jason Bulmahn have done a great job: the adventure contains action both in the City of Greyhawk and the legendary ruins beneath Castle Greyhawk itself and manages to feature many of the great movers and shakers of the setting, including Mordenkainen, Robilar and Iuz. As well as the main adventure plot, there are numerous side quests which connect NPCs in the city with items and characters in the dungeons. Several notorious areas of the castle ruins that we know appeared in Gygax's original campaign make memorable appearances and there are some very interesting new monster encounters. Really well done and very entertaining to read.

The only tricky thing is which group of players/characters to run it for. It's for 8th level PCs and needs to be set on Oerth to get the full benefit of all the Greyhawk lore inside. I think this might need to be a one-off campaign, a bit like Red Hand of Doom. I'll have to have a think...
