I was doing some refresher reading in the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer for some adventures I'm writing for next year and I saw that it said Robilar was the person who freed Iuz from beneath Castle Greyhawk.
Did this actually happen or was it a 3e explanation of how Iuz was freed?
Thanks.Outlaw

Yes indeedy! Robilar by himself released Hextor, which in turn caused the whole panoply of the nine to be released, to fight each other and then flee to separate ways.

I trust that the statues of the Nine will be worked into Castle Zagyg somehow... ^__^

It seems almost foolhardy that Robilar, deep in the dungeons, reckons that the strange but probably powerful beings will be released by his actions - and then proceeds!
I wonder how Gary had intended for that encounter to play out.

Ah, but the nine were not "deep" in the dungeons; they were on one of the newly expandedlevels (Core levels went straight down, then there were 8 for each N, for S, for E, and for W, which made about 44 (12 core plus 8x4 for the N-W levels, plus there were many sub-levels and specials). The encounter occurred on one of the N-W (can't remember correcty, think it was E) levels, range 4-6 at a guess, probably the 4th, IIRC).
Wish I hadn't lost my copy of the castle to a fire.... erh.
After Hextor properly chopped me up I retreated from the room to later hear more sounds of battle issuing from it as I hung around a little distance from it. I returned to find all nine pedestals empty. The statues had animated and fought, then fled.

Too bad Robilar wasn't able to "disarm" Hextor! ^__^

Didnt Erac's Cousin free Graz'zt in a similar fashion in Castle Greyhawk?Paladin of Mayaheine

GT--
The likelihood of disarming Hextor then is equal to the possibility now of squelching your puns... ; )

That was Fraz-Urb'luu... Graz'zt was freed (apparently) from some carelessness on the part of Iggwilv (who had bound him in the first place--and produced Iuz as a result)! ^__^

...and that was the famous "talking face" episode, partially inspired by A. Merritt's "The Face In The Abyss"--IIRC!
