[EDIT: Hosting is now actually completely funded for the next few years thanks to a lot of really generous people, so ignore everything below. I’ll be switching hosts in the next few days so expect some downtime, but the site will definitely be staying up.]
Heeeeey kids, so I know I promised I’d be posting again soon but I guess I say a lot of things? And I got busy again so that’s on hold.
ALSO: this site is going dark in about a week.
The hosting/domain is up for renewal and it’s just not an expense I can justify anymore, especially when I’m barely here anymore.
BUT! I did a thing for you:
THIS is a pdf compendium of basically everything I ever posted here. I’ve done zero formatting on it and it will be packed full of links that will end up going nowhere and it’s painfully ugly, especially when it comes to the tables, but the content’s all there. So download it if you want it.
You’ll also notice a big red pdf button at the top of every post on the site, so if you want to run off on your own and save specific posts, now’s the time to do it.
Paolo Greco is looking at setting up Choose Your Own Generator and the Seventh Order archive elsewhere, so follow him/me on G+ to get updates on what happens with that.
In the meantime, if you use it regularly I’d suggest heading over to Choose Your Own Generator and saving the complete webpage to your computer so that you can at least keep making generators for your own use until it’s back online. (Just right-click in open space on the page and select “save”).
Thanks heaps for reading my stuff/checking in vain for updates/commenting/still coming to the site in your hundreds every day.
It’s genuinely just a little bit sad to see this place close down, but hey, I’ll be back.
Sad news. I spent a lot of time here over the past year just browsing and following the further reading. Hope to get some more stuff outta that brain of yours soon. In the mean time thanks for all the quality.
Very upsetting news. This is arguably the best OSR blog in existence, and in terms of quality and depth of content I think it can stand toe to toe with any RPG product ever produced (the Cörpathium material especially). Guys like you, Zak S, James Raggi and Patrick Stuart have created a new aesthetic and made a true art out of tabletop roleplaying. I hope we can raise enough to keep the site up. I can’t access the link above but if you give me instructions on how I can I’ll gladly donate.
In the meantime, I hope there’s some way you can begin posting again in the near future. I know there was talk of compiling everything and making your own system at some point. Obviously that’s a huge project and probably the last thing you want to tackle at the moment, but there’s clearly a demand for it. There’s no way I can articulate what this blog meant to me in my development as a DM and how much I looked forward to each new post. Hard to believe it’s been a year and a half since the last one. You have an immense talent and I hope you mean it when you say you’ll write again. If I keep going I’ll ramble so let me just say thanks, Logan, and best of luck in whatever endeavors are currently keeping you.
Wow, thanks Noah, that really does mean a lot to me.
Over on the G+ thread they’ve already easily raised enough to cover my hosting for the next 3 years, so it looks like this site isn’t going ANYWHERE, but thanks for the additional offer of support.
It’s been really hard to find time to write/post game content, but I do miss it, and I do most definitely plan to get back to it when I can.
I sent a few dollars via Paypal, (which is probably the most concrete thank you that I could send) but I wanted to supplement that by saying, Sleeping Place of the Feathered Swine was the first old-school/DIY D&D adventure I ever ran and the campaign I’m prepping now is largely based on Corpathium. I love the hell out of everything you’ve made. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
Thanks so much Matt.
I was late to this party but am glad that the crisis is averted. I have had a ton of RPH fun by directly ripping you off. Now get back to work!
If you’re really back…could you please say something? We miss you. You and your glorious tables.
FFFUUUUUUU “back” is a relative term haha.
I have been working on rules and tables again here and there, but I’m not sure when any of it will be shareable.
Another year gone, I hope you guys are doing well!
Sigh. Another year, indeed.
