Hello everyone,

I want to let you all know what happened to the forum. Sadly our database has been lost and the back-ups I created using our forum system were corrupted. I apologize as I know this will be a massive inconvenience to everyone. Sadly as far as I can see, we have lost everything. I know exactly what I was doing wrong in my back-ups and will now be much more adamant to insure that doesn't happen again. I hope we can all come back and build OSRGaming back to where it was again.

My deepest apologies,

Dizzy/Andrew

Thank you you guys! Definitely glad to already see some action. If you see any other old members on G+ or Facebook or in your games, please share. I got a e-mail from DMMike about how he couldn't log in earlier. Had to explain what happened.

It's like we've been level-drained! Time to get more EPs!

Bummer dude. But...

We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better, stronger, faster.

I've been looking into. Sadly I don't think so. I have been using it to get a lot of our old board descriptions back up though.

Thanks for all your hard work Dizzy, and no worries man. I look at it like this. We have all retired high level guys to start over with low level characters. This is no different. It is kind of exciting if you ask me. But no one did. LOL

Much like my BFRPG campaign, it does seem like the level 1 forums accidentally stumbled into a crypt filled with Wights and didn't know to run. I'm hoping this at least gives us a clean slate to work off of, and gives us a chance to clean up and organize. Still a shame we lost so much though.
