Fan urls I noticed on that site:

http://greywolf.critter.net/wow.htm
http://www.geocities.com/Taelohn/Warcraft.html
http://www.geocities.com/tagar_bearclaw ... rclaw.html
http://www.geocities.com/malcom_west/
http://warcraft-rpg.blogspot.com/
http://www.geocities.com/uberbad/Librar ... ander.html
http://www.freewebs.com/lands_of_chaos/
http://www.geocities.com/talinxt/index.html
http://wow.stratics.com/content/features/name/

Silverhawk's site with some new factions: http://www.geocities.com/silverhawk72482/
Orgrim's site for GMs: http://worldofwarcraftrp.myfreeforum.org/index.php

I haven't checked the sites so I'm not sure if they all work. (I have to get going otherwise I would have.)

Thanks for this. There was one dead Geocities website. I've heard rumors that Geocities is booting RPG websites off, or closing down, or some-such. I'm not sure if this is true, but I know you have to log in periodically or they delete your website.

I already had one of those, and I found a better link for another one. So we are up-to date now.

Thanks again for your help.

Sorry for the OT post, but Geocities is closing down (everything) on October 26th of 2009 - so if you have data out there you want saved, I suggest saving it. I've been slowly but surely pulling all my files from the site in order to preserve them.

Thanks for the warning, Chimpman. That kind-of sucks as four of these Warcraft websites and one of the downloads are now due for deletion. :(

Somehow I managed to miss adding that one (or I added that and didn't notice that it vanished in the move). :oops:

Poke me if you notice any other links I have missed.

Thanks for the heads up, TAD. White Wolf have just updated their entire website and removed all traces of World of Warcraft RPG. Looks like I'm going to need to go to the Wayback Machine for most of the links.

EDIT: All the White Wolf links are now fixed, thanks to the Wayback Machine. Plus I've added links to archive copies of the original warcrafrpg.com and Conversion Manual.

Official character sheet (archived by RPG sheets) added, thanks to a tip by Diceman (over at the WoWRPG d20 Forums).

As a note, the Tech. Primer link doesn't work. Maybe someone more internet-savvy can find a copy.

Thanks for the head's up.

I've tried the various archives and can't find this. The reocities.com, oocities.org and geocities.ws websites do not have the document. The geociti.es website has gone down and the Internet Archive is not currently working.

The geocities.ws website had a holding page at logsmole. That might mean that logsmole signed up, uploaded one (or more) PDF and didn't bother to make a page that linked to them all. If that is the case then the people that tried to save Geocities websites would have missed the PDF. :(

Hopefully someone out there has downloaded a copy.

I'll mark the link as dead, but I'll leave it there as the dead link will help other people to search for it.

Geocities.ws have salvaged another "lost" Warcraft RPG website. :cool:
