A Manifestation of Chaos: Extinction Event!
This page’s intent is to acknowledge and give credit to the wide variety of influences on my campaign.
First and foremost, I want to acknowledge my players whom make this whole thing a worthwhile endeavor.

Much of the setting information located on the Main Wiki is derived from nearly every sourcebook ever published for the World of Greyhawk Campaign Setting. Some of the information deviates from the original source material due to changes wrought by 30 years of playing sandbox campaigns on Oerth.
The World of Greyhawk Campaign Setting is copy written material and is used only for the purpose of running a game in that setting.
The Campaign currently uses the Pathfinder RPG Rules Set, this is also copy written material and is used only for the purpose of running a game.
The World of Greyhawk Campaign Material located on the Main Wiki, has been updated to the Pathfinder RPG Ruleset where deemed necessary by myself. This has been done for the express purpose of adapting the flavor of Greyhawk for use in the Pathfinder RPG ruleset.
All Characters, PC’s and NPC’s were created by me or my players. Almost every character created by Leonidas300, use names taken from / based off of every conceivable sci-fi / fantasy source and is done so for primarily homage purposes and because, for instance, Shakiko (bonus points for anyone who knows the source without google) sounds better than Sally in a fantasy RPG. All Dwarven Characters created by Leonidas300 use Klingon names, once again because they sound great and work really well.
Obsidian Portal Favorite Campaigns:
The Campaigns below as well as their creators have provided much inspiration, guidance and encouragement for this page. The Banners have been used with permission and link to it’s respective campaign page. Check them out they are awesome campaigns. (these are not in any particular order as they are all great pages).
Notes: Stephenwollett also is a great guy and I think his his campaign concept is one of the most imaginative works I have ever seen. The way he has integrated so many sci-fi sources – shows, books, and movies into one universe is nothing short of brilliant. The wiki-page is phenomenal. His timeline both sets the bar and breaks the mold; it is a work of art.
Notes: Massive and Beautiful adventure logs, awesome titles and artwork, many excel in this area but these guys are like kung fu adventure log masters, like frickin Lo Lei with a pen.
Notes: Brilliantly laid out page, especially the Main Wiki, Adventure Log and his Characters’ page is truly awesome.
Notes: This looks to be a very fun campaign, intriguing storyline, awesome player participation, great use of the forums, very nicely done wiki, really like the book look and the deities section is very well done.
Notes: First word – Cthulhu!!!! Fransirmarco has the best Cthulhu game I have ever seen. His entire page is a work of art. The newspaper theme and choice of pictures give the page a real authentic feel and really immerses the viewer into the campaign. Fantastic wiki, the “In Memoriam” section is great and the “Game Aids” section is incredible. His video’s rock the house.
More pages to come pending permission.

I have taken most of the artwork in this campaign from the internet. I am grateful for all the work done and the enhancement it lends to my campaign, but as I am not using this site for any profit, I hope the chosen artists will accept this. Where any artist has specifically requested, I will cite their name or make a link to their website. If any artist featured on my site wishes me to remove their artwork, I will do so gladly, but otherwise hope that no one gets twisted up over the use the image.
