Well, this week things are finally starting to pick up again! The first wave of graphics to be replaced was completed and sent to GA Ronin, who should be updating the site sometime soon. Drako, Xander Drax and Leeson are working on the second round which will eliminate all of Chi-Long's old graphics.

Also, some great news, MinosNIC will be coming back online - hopefully by today! The server is back up thanks to the hard work of AD Turtle and the DNS is now propagating. Your ISP should be receiving the new DNS info within 24 hours.

Drako has also been working on a project directly from GA Ronin. Alex Foley is back from leave and did a new site design to be used for a subgroup-size website. Leeson has been working on the CD site and updating it to work with XSL/XML data formatting.

And now, I'll give you folks some info on our IO-WO-FO-TO-COMM project. The name of the project heretoforth is EH Wargames (EHW). It is designed to be an EH-wide project, modelled after many, many different ideas from different games, such as ImpStorm, Star Wars Rebellion, and Starz! to name a few. Obviously, if I named them all, I'd give away too much information. I can guarantee you now: whatever your preconceptions of a wargame is like in the EH, this project is designed to shatter them. It's a totally different style of wargame designed to maximize the involvement of as many players that sign up. EHW is still currently heavily in planning stages and awaiting many, many stats and figures from people in The Fringe who are working on them. If you're good with numbers and RPG stats, please contact CGM Zem/AD Pel if you wish to offer your help. This project will take a long time to complete, though by the end of the summer, I hope to have at least 1/4 of the coding done. When we're ready to begin coding, I'll be asking for experienced PHP coders to help out.

What do you think about SWG?

  • It looks amazing!
  • It looked good, but the bad launch ruined it
  • Looks cool, but not worth $15/month!
  • Galacrack looks like it'll suck
  • I don't care either way, I don't like MMORPGs
  • I bent my Wookiee
