Noticed recently that Scott Abrams has been maintaining a website for Midkemia, tho' updates have not exactly been frequent.

http://www.midkemia.com/

Just wondering if any others have pulled together a collection of early modules that were published.

That site appears to be dead. I've tried to contact Stephen Abrams half a dozen times over the past two years. I have the complete Midkemia Press works in PDF and I'd like to see them brought to press. I'm sure a PDF archive on CD/DVD would sell.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

I have a few copies of each.  I've been a print run junkie on these too.  There are lots of different prints.  For example, off hand I think Cities has 5 different prints, Carse has 4, etc.  

Also, I bought 3 copies of 2nd Edition Cities from their website about 3 years ago.

Even if the website is dead, the free downloads of two different Midkemia modules are very much still available.

If you are reading about this for the first time, go there and snag two classic Midkemia products for free.

Ian---I've corresponded with Stephen and Ray Feist during that time, so he's reachable....

Maybe they have their own project up their sleaves. It's a shame, 'cos I've got the work done. I just need artwork and I can go to print.

I have all of the published works ... just curious as to the overall thoughts of the early works and the potential of integrating them with other worlds.  Was contemplating using them with Judges Guild.  

Still, would be nice if they could have gotten off the ground on their own and released some updated works.

Very detailed, and very usable, if a bit dense (lots of material there). The city supplements are the best...any could be used as a long term base in a campaign.  The conversion would be a doozy....TONS of material to change to AD&D from generic fantasy form.
   I think Jonril as a base city, and the Sunken Lands supplement as a area to be explored, could be expanded into an entire campaign with a dedicated enough game master...
