Necromancer Forums Shutting Down

Frog God Games are moving to their own forums, meaning all information on the old Necromancer Games Forum will be lost. Copy and paste all the information you may think is worth saving into word documents now or it will be too late. :(

Actually, someone called Magoo has made the entire database available for download:

Magoo wrote:Hi guys,

Done! All those precious threads are saved forever

Zip file is 96M, unzipped 447M. I uploaded them for sharing on Google Drive.

It should be (mostly) fine.

It contains all of the subforums and threads as of Oct 31st 2013, with the exception of the Off Topic subforum which is incomplete.
All the files are static, you don't need a web server to access the archives. Everything is accessible offline with your browser. (it will works if you upload them to a web server)
Some links to the Yuku's profile of some users may not work but that shouldn't cause any problem.


Thanks to Bill and Clark, all the writers, editors and staff that provided us with all those amazing D&D books and many hours of awesome gaming and many PC deaths!

Thanks to the Necromancer Games' forum community, it was a great place to be online and discuss about D&D and many other topics!



Download it here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B21Jta ... sp=sharing

Extract the zip file and open the index.html file in the "ngforums" folder with your browser. Post here while you can or contact me if there's a problem.

Enjoy!

P.S.: If anyone care, I still have the "original" files I grabbed from Yuku before reformatting them to this Zip file but they are not included in it. The only usage I could see, is if someone wants to use them with my scripts (or not) to reformat the output or make something more dynamic with a database. I wanted something easy for everyone, that's why I went with all static files hehe

The existing forums are on Yuku. I'm pretty sure they do free hosting of forums, so I can't see why they could not just stay where they are. Yuku have even taken over a couple of other companies that used to host RPG forums. Both Andy Collins's D&D forum (which has a subforum for Spelljammer: Shadow of the Spider Moon) and Xander212's World of Warcraft forum have migrated to their servers.

Another way to deal with this would be for people to go to the Wayback Machine and use their Save Page Now option to grab any useful threads. That would create an archive that could be linked to from the Wilderlands forum here (or from anywhere else).

I think this has to do with:
  • Froggodgames having split from Necromancer Games which again is no longer involved with JG.
  • Frogoodgames wishing people to go to their new forum, which also is where they sell stuff from.
  • Frogoodgames not wishing to spend time maintaining/moderating this forum when they have another one

These forums have still not been deleted by Yuku.

What with there being a Kickstarter to bring Necromancer Games back, I wonder if the new management of Necromancer Games might change their mind and decide to hang onto these forums.
