Valon ~ The best of the best

Post by Omote »

Where's the best, most complete information found on Valon?

Is there an old JG supplement that might work well in conjuction with the Box Set? is there a good website out there that has collected information?

Help a Judge out.

Thanks.

Judges' Guild Journal #6 has stuff on Valon. JG is not my fort however, so someone with more knowledge could answer better.

Valon first was described in Campaign Installment [letter] O: Tarantis/Valon, which was included with Judges Guild Journal #6 ([letter] O), released October/November 1977.

All the information included therein (AFAIK) was also found in the Wilderlands of High Fantasy sourcebook, Judges Guild product #48, also published in 1977.

As far as I recall, there are no major installments or articles in the Journal, Dungeoneer, or Pegasus that deal with Valon... nor were there any adventure modules set there.

Thus, the best, most thorough description you will find for Valon will be in Necromancer Games' Wilderlands of High Fantasy boxed set, Book One, Chapter Two, which revises and expands all the information included in the prior two products.

With my current schedule for AGP, Wilderlands of High Adventure: Valon and the North won't be released until 4th Quarter 2008... so the boxed set information is your best bet until then.

That site helps. I went to Acaeum to research this as well, but no definitive help. Clearly it seems like the Wilderlands Box Set has almost ALL of the information out there on Valon.
