BBC: Elvenquest

Recently, a friend of mine introduced me to the BBC radio show Elvenquest.

Elvenquest is a radio parody of the fantasy role-playing genre written and driected by Anil Gupta and Richard Pinto.

The basic story includes the protagonist Sam Porter, a fantasy novelist, who along with his dog Amis is transported to the land of Lower Earth. There he meets the questers including Vidar the Elf, Penthiselea the Warrior Princess, and Dean the Dwarf. Together they search for the Sword of Asnagar, a great artifact, and battle the evil Lord Darkness and his yes-man Kreech.

If you haven't listened to these episodes I strongly encourage you to *acquire* them and give a listen. I listened to them on the way to and from work and found myself laughing out loud. Please report back and tell me what you think!

Help Finding Post: Lake Superior and Nyr Dyv

I read a forum post at some point that outlined maps comparing Lake Superior with Nyr Dyv in Greyhawk. I thought it was via a link through Grognardia, but I searched there and couldn't find it.

Can anyone throw me a bone?
