Make Aerdy Great Again

Hey Greyhawk fans! I'm coming to you tonight to urge and ask that you sign the following online petition, to let Wizards of the Coast know that there are a lot of Greyhawk fans out there, and that we want to see some official support for the setting for 5th Edition.

The petition can be found here, and reads as follows:

Dungeons and Dragons, the world's most popular role-playing game, has seen a renaissance with its wildly popular 5th edition rules. However, fans of the World of Greyhawk setting have been largely ignored, with no official support for the setting using the latest version of the game.

This petition will send a message to Wizards of the Coast, publishers of the game, that fans of the World of Greyhawk setting want to see official support for Greyhawk in 5th edition from Wizards of the Coast, and would enthusiastically support including the setting as one of the options for the DM's Guild online publishing platform.

Feel free to share the petition link far and wide. Let's let WotC know we want to see Greyhawk back as part of the official D&D family, along with the Forgotten Realms and Ravenloft.

If you like Greyhawk, then why in the world would you want the current crop of designers to mangle it up?

I had the same fear during the 4E era. But they really seem to be hitting all the right buttons and doing things right setting-wise in 5E.

Plus the DM's Guild allowing fans to publish stuff would be huge, too.

WotC doesn't care. A petition won't do any good. They've put too much money into the Forgotten Realms IP to change that.

What if we instead asked WotC if they would allow licensing of Greyhawk to another company and then allow fans to build a sort of "open-source" Greyhawk. Basically a wikipedia-like way to build a fantasy world.
