Sorry to hear it.  Had to re-register myself, as well.

On a related note...  I searched for a link to contact an Admin to find out what happened, and I could not find a "Contact Us" link anywhere.  I'd recommend adding that soon, as there seems to be no way to contact an Admin to file a request, or a complaint.  Cheers!
Gaming:  one of life's many pleasures!

Thanks for the suggestion sgtslag. I'll make sure that gets added to the homepage sometime soon!

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

It's like a 0-level funnel in Dungeon Crawl Classics. I guess we're the peons that made it! :)

It does feel like a level drain ;)
At least it was only a level drain and not a critical fumble that that caused worse damage ;)

@DizzySaxophone  Almost... sounds like you were playing DCC wrong... I played Sailors on the Starless Sea with my players and technically if I didnt change the final scenario it would have been a TPK

Sorry to hear about this, as a Software Engineer by profession I've witnessed plenty of IT disasters compounded by missing or corrupted backups. I've rebuilt databases before but I'm not sure what modern forum software uses, my advice would be to keep the corrupted files around as you might find a way to reincorporate them someday.

Mojo they were cowards! Glad some guys survived though! Looking forward to some level 1s and to introduce some more zeroes. Now to depend on what to run next >.> <.<

Digital TPK.
Time to roll up an new character.

Heh. Heh.

Bummer but it doesn't upset me. I'm old enough to remember when you crumpled up that sheet of notebook paper and tossed it away - it was gone! I often tell my kids that when I was their age if yo missed a TV show you missed it.  No Netflix, Youtube or internet. You had to wait 364 days before Rudolph was on again.
