Did anyone manage to archive any of the content from the Kobold Press boards, before they got shut down?

Never mind. I got an answer to that in the "How much Midgard content was on the KQ forum?
Doomedpaladin wrote:The Summerlands, where the elves retreated to using their shadow roads.
That is an interesting concept. So do shadow roads vanish down into the Underdark?
Doomedpaladin wrote:The Elemental Kingdom, where all the elemental planes are combined into a single world populated by elementals.
That would radically change the way that the Planescape elements of D&D and Pathfinder would fit with Midgard. It would kind of bring the cosmology to the Material Plane.

Do you have a link to the thread on Google+ where you suggested that?
Doomedpaladin wrote:The Underworld, Land of the Dead, where souls stand in endless queues in an otherworldly bureaucracy overseen by psychopomps and fought over by angels and devils. (traveling through the Underdark and into the Underworld has been brought up often)
That sounds logical. Presumaby you would need to flip over within the Underdark, half way through. But I do wonder if the lands of the living would eventually "fill up" a Land of the Dead that was the same size.
Perhaps if you had a Midgard-sized Land of the Dead that was a bit like Ghostwalk, the dead could stay there for a bit and then move on to somewhere else.
Doomedpaladin wrote:The Birthplace of the Gods (no real description beyond that)
Hmm. So that would make Midgard upside-down.
Doomedpaladin wrote:The Coils of the World Serpent, where everything that falls off the edge ends up in a roiling sea of chaos.
Would that make the World Serpent bigger than the circumference of Midgard?
Doomedpaladin wrote:There have been other ideas, but I can't remember them at the moment. I imagine it'll be a while before the underside is going to be tackled, after Southlands there's still the Far East and our Underdark to expand upon.
Right. So I guess this topic will be speculation for a few years.

Layers? Midgard has layers? What are they?

In fact I tried to pitch a project dealing with the flipside of Midgard, and I even tried to make the Great Sinkhole in the Southlands a pit that leads to the underside. But Wolfgang is keeping things under wraps. He did say that he will be revealing what is over there (or under there?) at some point but for now he wants it to remain a secret.
The Great Sinkhole sounds interesting. I'll look forward to reading about that, when the Southlands book comes out.
We will all just have to wait and see.
