 Tempus who watched orcs slaughter her family when she was 9.  All orcs are evil.  Non-evil orcs don't exist.  No I don't need to waste my time using my special ability to make sure.  They're orcs.

One of my players wrote me a two page essay about why that's racist and she should lose her powers for being evil.  I laughed him to scorn.  The God of War doesn't give a shit about racism.

Another player became concerned at my actions.  I was defending a wizard and we teleported to an area controlled by magic averse barbarians.  They wanted me to surrender the wizard to them for a trial.  I refused and told them that they could let us pass peacefully and live or they could attack us and die.  They chose to die, and the DM asked how many of the village I was willing to slaughter in defense of my charge.  I said "Every man woman and child that attacks us will die.  All they have to do to live is stand down."  Apparently they're unfamiliar with medieval knightly codes of conduct.  I was sworn to protect my charge with my life.  With every stroke I demanded that they yield.  None would.  They all fell.  Not my fault they're too proud and stupid to live.



Elidor never really saw any Orcs do anything bad to anyone until he started going into dungeons - but then all of the ones he saw were trying to kill him, and he had heard that is what they were going to do. Elidor is a Fireball first, ask questions later kind of wizard.

I do have a folder on my computer that has every TSR D&D book published and most of the 3rd edition stuff.



I need Unearthed Arcana, Dieties and Demigods, and the Monster Manual. Lost them somewhere along the way. 

 



I'll see about getting those into my dropbox.  Remind me later.



I have all the Original, first edition, 2nd edition (and 2.5), 3rd edition, 4th edition, 5th edition printed material here is Sacramento CA.  I also have PDF files of all except the 4th and 5th editions.  I have not scanned all that material, or scrounged up PDF versions of all of that material yet.

I've got most of the PDFs, too... but nothing really replaces the real thing. I want a 1st edition monster manual with the original blue wrap around cover. I wish I hadn't let my original books get away from me. They seemed so worthless at the time.

I have not let mine go.  I did loan out 1 copy of my 3rd edition players handbook that did not get returned.  Thankfully, I had 2 more in inventory.

Won't make that mistake again.

Yeah, they're too valuable to loan, especially when PDFs are readily available. That person sucks, whoever they were, by the way.

Well, this was back in 2004ish, and the PDFs were not as easy to come by back then.

Interesting thing is, I think I had PDF versions of them all back then. Not the highest quality. Clearly scans, some of them crooked, writing on some pages, in PDF format, with some layout errors. 

But ARRRR... tis always been that life for me, matey. ;) 

Somewhere along the line, I lost most of them - not like, I don't have copies... the files are buried in the 20ish years of data I have going all the way back to when I worked at MCI that now take up the better part of 12TB of storage on a NAS. I'm a data hoarder. I actually still have 5.25" floppies with the original Fastback backups of the Sanitarium from when I shut it down. Which means, I suppose, I could theoretically restore it and figure out when the very last message was posted. :) See... it is a good thing I kept those disks all these years.

Hey, you should try to restore those.  Did you keep the source code and runtime for Asgard Citadels (80 and 86) (Or SacCit) available for download like many of the Sacramento Citadels?  I hear that the source code for the latest version has been lost.  Could be a fun project for you to try to recover some history...

I talked to Ian Justman (Now Holly Justman) about sending the archives to her to restore them. (I wouldn't deadname her, but I feel like maybe not everyone knows. Anyhow...) Evidently, she does this kind of thing quite a bit. But... inertia. I doubt Gary or Charles trusted me with the source code of Asgard-86 - And I think that is the last Sac Cit I standardized on. 

 

But the runtime is on there for sure, and I bet the .zips of them are in the files] section too. 

Maybe I should consider getting those disks to someone who cares who might be able to recover them. There are also a shit ton of Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler spreads I scanned in with my Digiview Gold to trade for Amiga warez on there too, for sure. I wasn't ever a very good cracker, but at one point I was probably one of the premier generators of digitized Amiga porn on the West Coast. 

Which...  figures, I guess. 

"You've got a $4000 Amiga 2000 with 4mb of ram and a 40mb hard drive! The sky is the limit! What are you going to do with it?"

 

"Create porn to trade for fuzzy scans of print media porn?" 


"That will win you a job at the Byte Brokers, retailer of new and used computers!"

Holly was one of the people looing for the source code.  As for the runtime, there is an incomplete zip file on the internet for 1.49q that is missing most of the program.  So you could be contributing to Citadelphian history if you help recover any of that.

This would all be so much easier if only I still lived in Sacramento. :) 

I'll see what I can do though. It might be an interesting project - and I'd love to help, if possible.
