    Gary Gygax Q&A: Part X

    Sure, there've been tons of threads started in the last 5 months that we'll never see again, but I think I can arrive at a general concensus that the saddest casuality of the site crash was the "Gary Gygax: Part X" thread.

    Who's with me?

    Damn. I didn't make the time to print that thread yet, simply because it was going to take a million years to do so. Sigh....

    well, the new one wasn't around very long, but the previous one lost a fair number of posts. regardless, time to start over...
    don't quote me on that.

    I am the D&D guru on Wikipedia (because no one else wanted the job!) so check out the D&D Wikiproject!

    Well, you can get at least part of it through Google...

    I didn't check (not familiar with the content of the thread), but I'm pretty sure that all pages will show up...

    Really? That's good news!

    I was actually wondering if it'd be possible to attempt a reconstruction of the thread. Many many times, a thread response will be copied to my hotmail inbox. Sadly, I delete most of them. However, I'll bet there are those of us who do not delete ANY of them!

    Worth a try?

    See, THIS is what I'm talkin' about:

    Col_Pladoh has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled -
    General - Gary Gygax Q&A, Part IX - in the General RPG Discussion forum of EN
    World - Morrus' D&D / d20 News & Reviews Site.

    This thread is located at:
    http://www.enworld.org/showthread.ph...7&goto=newpost

    Howdy!

    Actually, the CZY work is quite adaptable to the AD&D game, so of course
    Hackmaster should serve.

    I am coordinating some 20 freelance writers in their efforts to detail the
    town's 19 sectors as well as five suburban areas. Three town districts are
    completed now, one accepted for publication and two in process of content
    editing. When the whole shebang is completed the place should be ideal for urban
    adventuring and PC enterprises in town, in its outskirts, as well as throughout
    the whole of the Eastmark.

    Cheers,
    Gary

    All the material on Google is sans text...lost in the crash I assume.

    Haakon1 was the last poster that I know of, but that too is lost.

    Such is life on the internet :\

    Cheers,
    Gary

    Try to "select" the text. I noticed in some other threads that I was interested in, the text was black for some reason (in the cache). I could select the text (for the opposite contrast), to read it. Or, copy/paste into an unformatted editor.

    Let's not completely give up on it yet. There is some background discussion of a newer copy of the d-base, so we may yet have most of the discussion. I'd hold off on Cataclysmic revelations until the database situation is completely 100% settled, first.

    Have faith, hope, patience, and a couple of prayers handy, and we'll let you know if there's more to be said.
    WAAAAAGHUST!
