Specific Area Organizations are a vital part of Greyhawk’s return to fame – a group of people (4-8) in a real-world geographical area that develop a specific location in Greyhawk. The group is responsible for creating storylines, writing adventures, running adventures, developing regional groups, and organizing events where Greyhawk Reborn is run for players. The group works with the GHR Leads to preserve campaign continuity. The specific location to be developed in Greyhawk can range from one specific town and surrounding area to a large area such as a province or even a small country. The GHR Leads approve an area based on the in-game location, the geographical location, the number of people offering to organize and the available player base. One person of the group, the Organizer (SAOO), should contact the GHR Leads to petition for a particular location of interest.
