This is a cool thread. I'm disappointed it took me this long to run into it. Maure/MFA is my favorite GH series and it was great when RJK donated thr additional Warlock's Walk to Oerth Journal several years ago. Seeing this clever bit of detective work really stoked the old memories, thanks!


Ok uncle, I have tried again.


No delivery failure notice, thats a good sign.

Hmm. I am not receiving your emails. Althen. Please contact Grodog again and make sure he gave you the correct address.

As for the hope that MC would be published professionally, I do wish that folks would read my prior posts and understand that the possibility of that is zero to none. WotC controls all trademarks and copyrights (WoG and MC) and I am 99.99% sure they would not grant me those licenses.


So pleased to see recent activity here including contributions from Uncle, outstanding! The idea of different folks with the same information coming to different 'conclusions' is spot on.

My own theory was rather less well developed than Althens but to keep the conversation going and prove the above point I thought I'd share it.

I thought that 'Y' being an alphabet reference was too straight forward for Uncle and it got me thinking about the possibility of a symbolic reference. Specifically a horn type symbol which in turn got me thinking about Devils.

That possibility might explain Malchantets wrath with Uncle? I then tried to find out about non canon Devils (as Y was not canon) which took me to an article called 'The politics of Hell' in Dragon issue 28 which isn't considered canon. It talked about a Devil who could travel in time and who, according to Dragon 42, created possessor devils (see Elluvia picture ref).

This led to my theory that Y was..................................

Satan.

Now having said that my theory fell down as it didn't, amongst other thing's, have a link to the need for Dalt or a link to a herald.
But I have to confess the exercise of pursuing my line of enquiry was no less enjoyable for that fact!

Look forward to visiting again and hearing what happens next.


Well, i did contact Grodog and the email match. I give up. Must not be meant to be.

@Althen,

We even checked our spam folder and your messages are not there. ??

Just forward through grodog's mail for now and he will send them on to me. However, I cannot guarantee immediate movement on this beyond a preliminary outline stage as I am currently doing a lot of research/writing for a very involved non-fiction book. Probably best to discuss all in a Q&A by phone with you taking notes. There's also another chap--"Luz" at Canonfire who you should contact, as he has shown recent interest in this as well. Get his email from Grodog. Perhaps a prelim ordering of ideas between you two would partially guide the future Q&A??

@Gregos: Nice to know that the mystery bug is chewing at your own fringes! Sure, it's about making lemonade out of lemons at this point, but there's value via mental deduction in that as well. Everyone loves a mystery.


Ok, well, I will find time and coordinate with the wife when I will be able to call, and try to get ahold of this LUZ at Canonfire. Will contact in the future.

Not necessary to go to CF! Althen, and I'd love to collaborate on expanding Maure Castle if you'd like a co-pilot. Please feel free to contact me.

They do indeed Uncle, they do indeed! Good luck to Althen and Luz, look forward to seeing this move on.


Althen, Luz---

Feel free to email me again and I'll pass along both to Rob again :D

the beauty with which your prose delivers bad tidings only makes them more painful to hear, uncle. nonetheless, i remain a grateful fan, evermore.

How goes this then? Will unanswered questions have to remain as such?


Wow, you go away and forget about MC for a while and just as I'm about to go back and use it in anger some guys are posting here and tapping Rob for information! More than that they're talking about a fan-version of MC! Well, count me in! Rob kindly let me run Warlock's Walk for Gencon in the UK more than a few years ago now and even more kindly gave me a writing credit on the WW version published on the OJ (even though I had precious little to do with it!); he even gave me a name check earlier in this thread :)

@grodog - if I mail you at the address given above can I get in on this project too? Whilst I too am a little intimidated by trying to match Rob's bizarre (and I mean that in a good way) & powerful imagination, I am willing to have a go (particularly if Rob can give us the odd steer).

@althern - I had a similar e-mail exchange with Rob a few years back about the true nature of Y: we came to similar conclusions :)

I was at GenCon and played WW. I had a blast.

My players won't let their characters go after I finish up Red Hand of Doom. After the Istivin Trilogy from Dungeons 117-119 (they're in Sterich now, so it fits), I'll have them tackle MC.

It might be a while off, though, we're taking a break soon (I've DM'd over a year straight, now) for a spot of Traveller.

I remember - you still in Southport (ah, the old home town...)?

I'm taking up the DM gauntlet with my players soon and MC is likely to feature (I'm dipping in for a specific purpose but it might interest the PCs enough to explore some more). They are in Furyondy at the moment after a short visit to Iuz (Iuz the Evil adventure - it was nasty).

I'm blogging about recent gaming experiences if anyone is interested and will no doubt talk about MC in due course.

Not heard from anyone about the MC fan-version mooted above... Anyone...?


Some interesting tidbits dropped by Rob in an article entitled "Advent of the Elder Ones: Mythos vs. Man in the Lake Geneva Original Campaign, 1973-1976", which is published in AFS#2, in case folks aren't aware of this new old-school publication. Details @ http://hallsoftizunthane.blogspot.com/

An update:

As I was getting real close to getting out of gaming for good, an opportunity has come up. I have been asked by a friend to be one of his designers in a world setting of his creation that is to be published. I am sorry that I got everybody excited, and that several people starting looking for a fan driven continuation. I will say this,
if I turn out to put out quality material for this upcoming new game world, I will revisit this at a later date, for right now I doubt my ability to provide as good as material as Rob has done over the years. Also, talking over the telephone is not a good way for me to communicate with anybody. So, if there are others that want to continue working on fan based material, do so. Maybe someday in the future, I will be able to meet with Uncle for a major sit down and hammer ideas event and have enough confidence in my work to tackle such a treasure that Maure Castle has become. Just want to inform all gentle readers. Godspeed.


I realize this thread has been dead for awhile but it's not like necroing a thread is a crime, right? I just wanted to say that while Yog-Sothoth is also my first guess (pretty much along the same reason as the OP, mainly due to the Silver Key), two other possibilities include Yuggoth (if it's not just a planet...? Which it may not be) and Y'golonac, who is also an (albeit less-known) Old One. Also his (?) "portfolio" seems to overlap rather well with the Maure family's personality <<
