The "Living Greyhawk Gazetteer" (LGG) is sourcebook for the "World of Greyhawk" campaign setting for the "Dungeons & Dragons" roleplaying game and expands upon material covered by previous products, such as Gary Gygax's "World of Greyhawk Fantasy Game Setting" and Carl Sargent's "From the Ashes" (TSR, 1993). Despite the title, the "Living Greyhawk Gazetteer" is not exclusive to the Living Greyhawk Campaign. Other publications linked to the "Living Greyhawk Gazetteer" have treated it as superior to the "D&D Gazetteer" and used it in the D&D Gazetteer's place [cite journal

Critical Response

Of the two Greyhawk Gazetteers (The "Living Greyhawk Gazetteer" and the "D&D Gazetteer") published for the 3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons game, the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer was better received by players.
