    Too much stuff... causes my life to lack direction.

    True Site for Blades is down?

    For reference, the truesite zipfile should be the same as everything contained in the Root folder. And the Root folder would be the same as the public_html folder for a website... however opening up the index file looks like the archive is from 2010 instead of 2015... 2015 is probably when I moved it to OneDrive. Further investigation has revealed I no longer have server access to the current files. I've left a message with Keira and the Calref community. If the current files are still available, they'll make it to you. Otherwise... letting go of the old isn't all that bad. It opens up the possibilities to embrace the new.

    Or, better yet, I've shared the OneDrive folder where I keep an archive of it. It's from 2015 but considering I've like touched it twice since then, I think it will be sufficient. I'm hoping you can just download the zipfile for it. Well, this is bittersweet, Microsoft's auto suggested date for access to the folder to end was 8/8/2018... The ten year anniversary of the day that CalRef 'blew up' and gave us our first major plot point for /*...stupid memory...what's its name?... ah yes, just needed a moment*/ ...Fanciful Tales and Wild Stories of the Refuge. 08/08/08 was what I personally considered a starting point...for so many dearly held things, and now 08/08/18 will be a representative end. My goodness... I might just cry. Almost makes me want to write a benediction for the sheer poetry of it. Or come out of retirement... Neither of which is likely unless I actually retire.

    I tried emailing an address you used to contact me with a few ten-ish years ago. I'm guessing it must not be valid anymore. Yes, PM me your email address.

    I believe they are BoE. From Harehunter mostly. But I haven’t reviewed them in a long time.

    Hello. Officially, yes, I've allowed TrueSite to close. The files are safe and available for transfer if someone is interested in hosting/maintaining them. Please contact Luca at https://calamityrefuge.net/ as she and Keira most graciously hosted my files for several years. I also have several other Blades related files entrusted to me by other retired SWers that didn't get added to the site if you are interested in those as well. Let me know.

    Well, we're not all as talented as you Aran. Those of us with less knowledge and shorter memories find point and click irreplacable. I haven't attempted to write a BoA scenario yet because of my lack of scripting knowledge and I'm eagerly awaiting the Windows versions of the afore mentioned utilities.

    Open source project startup

    I, for one, am very interested in the development of BoE. I love the game and would love to see it flourish again. Unfortunately I have little programming experience but I offer any help I can. Beta-testing, sounding board, keeping various projects linked together at my website... don't know what else I can do. I just had a thought. Now that BoE is opensource, can I host 'that which does not exsist'? The wtfed.exe to be specific. Edit: I would also like to echo what has already been said. If you want something done, just do it, or it will never get done. My website was ultimately born out of a long forgotten thread about an UberSite(can't remember if that's what they actually called it) that would be a central website for everything that has to do with blades. It never saw fruition, indeed it never even got off the ground because there was a lot of talk but no walk. The ideal that was the ubersite is the inspiration behind mine. All updates have this ideal in mind, and though I have had many people help and offer content to which I am very grateful, if I actually want something done with it, I have to do it. I hate that I sound like I'm stroking my ego with this, but I really want it to stick. If you have the passion and desire to work on this, then do it. Do it for the community but, more importantly, do it for yourself because even though the community will be grateful, displays are often few and far between. Ask for help when you need it. Beta calls don't go unanswered here, and there are programming people that may be able to help with specific problems. Best wishes and good luck!

    Graphics Hoard Unleashed Upon Ye

    Recieved, thank you. I'm planning a PixPro update at some point. I'll go through and make sure that any white highlights, noise, and cutoffs are taken care of before they're posted unless there are any objections.

    Aran, do you still have these pics somewhere?

    Project Spiderweb.

    I like the feather. Especially in the death scene. It'd be cool if your monster actually dropped a big red feather. My monster is supposed to drop a magical Sapphire necklace... if it were to be killed, that is.

    Project Spiderweb.

    Huzzah! My very first BoA graphic offering. I think I still have some angle and shading issues to work on, though. And I got rid of the white noise for this graphic. Edit: I tested mine and made a slight adjustment. Redownload if neccessary.

    What's Wrong With My Dialogue?

    Aran is working on a scenario?!?!!! My interest has been peaked.

    Adobe Photoshop is your friend. Dark enough?
