Looked at it yesterday and it was there... maybe there's an upgrade or something.

I got the idea that Mattias had abandoned the site some time ago.  Perhaps he has not paid the web service for keeping it up any longer.

This might be a nice illustration of both the great usefulness of the web for distributing information....and the dangers of relying on the permanence of a source that is actually quite impermanent.

This is one of the reasons that I have saved photos of game celebrities and Acaeum members from the web...just in case.

I am guessing that the webpage was probably in his university account while he attended.  Universities usually take a very long time to remove old accounts and often only do a clean up when they retire an old machine.

I think he was actually either working at the Uni or doing masters/doctor... it has to have been up at least 10 odd years..;)

Unfortunately the last Internet Archive of the site was from Dec. 29 2004.

No actually I think that was the last time actually changed it so it is the "current" version of the site...

Yes. I did the same - made a word doc of it. Good source material for the Non-TSR subweb!!! Would be happy to work on that, just got to get this dang PhD out of the way first!

I think the next big site for nonTSR D&D is Tome of Treasures.  The main benefit being that anyone can add stuff to the forums so information and pictures are out immediately instead of relying on a single person to make an update.  Eventually they will all get moved to webpages but the forum idea is nice for building the archive.

I'm still here lurking. Busy as hell, ditched a wife at Christmas (well she ditched me). Queueing up No. 2 as we speak. And looking longingly at my collection of PDFs and hard copies wishing I had the time to pick up my hobby again. May well stick a stack of my uncommon non-TSR on eBay, but the dollar/pound exchange rate makes selling from the UK pretty bad at the moment.


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

If you'd like access to modify and upload to afterglow2, I can give it to you. We go back a while and I know how much you prize your non-TSR.
So where's Harami, Killjoy, Johnhuck, the Burnie Bro's, Deadlord, and all them goodfellas? Have we all bugged out? Grodog, you still here I assume? ExTSR?

Hey, Ian! Glad to hear from you!
Yeah, Mark is an OK guy, I guess.     :D
If you guys decide to edit the site and have any questions about non-TSR stuff, I'll help if I can.

Present, though in CA this week for work (which has been a bit gruelling after being in NJ for the 11/3 Police show...).
