Request for help from Etherscope creator

Hi all, I don't know if any of you who might be reading this followed us when we had the Black Orifice blog on webjam, but if any of you were I am trying to locate the files we had up on the site (Etherscope stuff and the other stuff). If anyone has copies of these they could send me I would be very...

Re: Darklore Campaign Primer pdf available?

The trouble I would have is getting the time to make the changes. What precious time I have available for writing at the moment is spent on a new system I am creating, and the space-western-horror setting I intend to release it with. Sorry if that's a bit mean of me, but D20 feels like a long time i...

Re: Darklore Campaign Primer pdf available?

Etherscope is released only under the OGL license, whereas DarkLore was released under the D20 System license. I believe that the D20 System license was revoked shortly after 4e being launched, and so we are no onger able to sell products released under the D20 License.

Re: Darklore Campaign Primer pdf available?

Sorry, but my understanding of the licensing rules is that we're no longer able to sell anything put out under the old D20 License, and hence cannot sell you DarkLore.

cheerio,

Unofficial new system: an invitation

Hi folks, Nigel and I have begun working, unofficially, on a new system for Etherscope. I know there's been a bot of discussion on the idea here in the past and thought i'd invite teh truely dedicated "friends of Etherscope" who post and lurk here to join in and help us out.

Re: Anybody still playing Etherscope?

Just my opinion, but I don't think 4th edition D&D is the system for a continuation of Etherscope, much too combat- and miniatures- oriented, and not nearly role-playing. (Oh, I feel a side note is in order to correct something said earlier. The largest documented number of players of Dungeons and ...

Sorry, I think you misunderstood me. Malladin's Gate Press was the PDF publishing company Nigel and I ran together, but Etherscope is published by Goodman Games. Whether Malladin's Gate is operational or not has no bearing on Etherscope whatsoever. It just explains why the malladin's gate forums are...

For Etherscope fans living near Manchester this is a unique opportunity to take part in an official playtest of the first steps in the Etherscope metaplot and play with the game's designers. The year is 1986. Haven has grown to a size that rivals the Scope domains of the la...
