Sounds like it time for a 4E DCC world, to me!
Sorry Harley, it was a low blow. I've modified the population of Ternyziem to 1/10th of that in the campaign I am running.
WRT a 4e Gazeteer, I am torn. Whilst I would love to see a Gazeteer Mk II more than anything, I would like it to offer lots of new stuff, not rehashed stuff from DCC 35. I am perfectly capable of editing small details in DCC35 that are 3.5ed specific and need tweaking for 4e (e.g. Deity Domains and the absence of Dragonborn). What I am hungry for is more detail such as that that came out about Morrain in DCC51. I had high hopes of the Punjar gazeteer, but it did little more than whet my appetite.
There are some (loads of) unexplored corners of Aereth. I would like to see some of them start to get filled out (e.g. the origins of the scourgelands, the history of the Theocracy of the Lance, the stories of the Elves and the Druids as they rebuilt from the tragic end of the War of Divine Right, the backstory for the Soulgrave, additional information about The Graves/Sireal Citadel (the prison island off Crieste), who were the Mages of Nemfar and just what are the Nagas up to down in Zimala these days).
There are days where I feel like offering to write some new Gazeteer material myself as I am so impatient to see some more
I have written some small amounts of stuff for my own campaigns (you might remember the integration I did of Freeport into Aereth last year, which I eventually posted). I also have successfully integrated the "Shattered Gates of Slaughtergarde" campaign into my version of Aereth and am very proud of the outcome. Having the Knights of the Sable March and the Ordo Arcana vying for power in the Valley of Obelisks in central Crieste was a real blast. However, I have refrained from anything too creative/ambitious as I don't want to define anything that will stop my own version of Aereth being backward compatible with your version.
Hope this helps (and makes sense)
