Oerth Journal Index

The Oerth Journal is a fan publication, put out in pdf format on an irregular schedule (usually one or two issues a year). There's a lot of good stuff in there, dating back 15 years (!), and it's definitely worth looking into if you're a fan of Greyhawk as I am. I was looking for a particular article today, and as I found myself opening up file after file to look at the table of contents, it struck me that an index of all the issues would be a handy thing to have. An index appeared in issue 10, but naturally that only covered the first nine issues. The one below is complete (as far as I know), and as new issues come out I'll try to keep this page updated.

Ah, you beat me to it! :)

This is actually a planned part of my Gygax Legendarium, Appendix P (Periodicals). I have compiled indexes for Dragon, Dungeon, Footprints, Oerth Journal, & Polyhedron. I have to get a Living Greyhawk index together yet.

Of course, at the rate I am posting, my Oerth Journal index isn't scheduled to post until mid-November.

Great work!

Well, as I say, this was borne of necessity on my part. So I figured (a I am wont to do) why not share?

Although unless I'm mistaken, isn't there already a LG index somewhere out there?

Riley said...

If I wasn't such an honest player, I'd read through the index to get a clue about what Greyhawk could hold in store for us. I guess I'll be good.

This index is a superb tool, thank you!

It also makes it easier to browse for things that might be good reads without absorbing too much that could be a spoiler.

Joseph said...

Hey, if you guys think knowing the circumference of Oerth will help you out in the campaign, more power to you!

silentsilverhawk said...

It'll help when I try something maniacally silly like determining the trajectory of a circumference-spanning super-super-super-long shot.

Or maybe it'll just be a good read.

There is a Living Greyhawk Journal index on Canonfire! @ It's linked from the main CF! left-nav under Features, which is also where the old (and out of date) OJ index is located. I liked the CF! index because it had an .html index page for each issue, but they seem to be missing....
