December 8, 1998
There is a contest being run for entries in the new sourcebook, the
Liber Servitorum, or the Book of Servitors. It's mostly Angels and
Demons, with some rules for roles and servants thrown in. The contest
rules are online here, for easy perusal.
It ends on January 10, 1999.
November 25, 1998
I've finally posted some new articles online. Work backed off, and best
of all, I finally became healthy once again, so updates should happen with
I lost a bunch of articles during the webserver crash, as they were
sitting in my mail and it wasn't on tape-backup. So I apologize to anyone
whose article I had in my hot little hands.
October 26th, 1998
Okay, so why haven't I put up any
updates on the INC pages lately? I have plenty of articles. But, I've
been in this massive cycle of "Lack of Immune" system which comes with
pneumonia. *sigh* The bronchitis just went to hell.
I'm hoping to be out of it by mid-November, and back up to being able
to work more then the absolute minimum. Keep yer fingers crossed.
September 28, 1998
I finally got around to updating the
INC today. I have plenty of articles, but last week I was hit by work and
the flu, so this had to wait.
In the mean time, Final Trumpet has been spotted at Underworld on South
University in Ann Arbor, MI. so I assume that it's now out at hobby stores
everywhere. The SongBook is likely right on it's heels. Also, the Book
of Tethers is currently in playtest on Pyramid, so if you haven't looked
at it yet, playtest is winding down and this is your chance.
September 9 1998
I've done my good dead for the day
- I've finally broken the Tips page into Tips, Theories, Resources, and
Humor. The four links are listed in the menu under Sections now.
In IN news, the Songbook has gone to the printers. And there's a rumor
going around that Final Trumpet was on sale at a convention recently
(DragonCon?) I'm notorious about both cons and sourcebooks (as in, my
money goes to other things, like plane tickets) so I wouldn't know, but
those are the rumors.
August 25 1998:
I am in the process of piloting/testing a
search engine for the In Nomine Collection. Through the use of filters
while indexing, it's exclusively for the INC for the time being. There is
a link to it down on the left hand toolbar of the New Index, so it should
be available soon.
The New Index is going to become the defacto index as of tomorrow
morning. So if there are any comments or complaints, it would be best to
send them on to me now. Thanks.
August 10, 1998
Well, gee, that was fun. After a bout of severe bronchitis, I'm almost
up and about - sort of. Basically I'm run down and cranky as all get out.
As for the INC, I'm starting to pick at it listlessly. I'm stuck in
the mother of critical sections at work, waiting for a coworker to finish
up some code so I can move on, so I have an excuse to work on web pages.
Three more pages up, 26 more sitting in the queue. I could
probably put up more then three a day, granted, but this is easier. I
have an enormous list of improvements to experiment with, but I don't know
when any of them will go live.
July 31, 1998
Okay, sue me. I'm way behind on getting
the entire site up to date, but work came down like the Biggest Hammer,
and we all know how that is. I added a few new articles... but my count
has 29 more to go. They're all HTMLized, I just need to find time to put
them all up. I have scripted about 90% of the site maintenance now.
July 17, 1998
Here I am with a terrible summer headcold.
Man, it's unfun. Anyway, between Casca and Beth, I have acquired 60+ new
articles for the INC, which will be posted in waves next week. Some might
be repeats, so I need to do a little version control on some of the pages.
In the mean time, I've had these thoughts about improvements:
- Finish building the white version of the page.
- Break up the drop down list/automate drop down list.
- Install a search engine on the pages.
I'll start picking at some of this stuff next week.
July 13, 1998
Thanks to all who gave me feedback. I'll
probably use a bevy of the suggestions that were posted here. For those
who asked about a white page instead, check out The
Mockup Page where I've swapped all the colors. And, because so many
people screamed in pain at the concept of fonts/style sheets, I've junked
But... and this is the bad news here.... I walked into work and not
only do I have a project due, there was more project taped to my monitor.
(Largely, and wisely, because I've learned to leave work before 4 on
Fridays to discourage cheeky ideas that I'm going to hang around and work
on stuff until late at night that night.) Therefore and thus, yes I have
new articles and links to go up, and yes, you're going to be waiting.
Let's see how far I can get today on work before I try to do any more web
July 7, 1998
Today (as if it wasn't blindingly obvious)
I'm bringing the new page Live. The Old Page is still accessable from the
link up at the top, and I have no intention of wiping it out any time
soon. There's some automation that is getting added to pages - mostly
Last Modified updates and the like today. I may be changing the font of
the page to Ariel, I'm not sure yet. Thanks to all who gave me feedback!
June 29, 1998
Thanks to those who sent
me comments. I've debugged the page, changed the coloring to white on
black instead of red on black, tightened up the table, and changed the
it's going to need to live somewhere other then my own web server, sooner
or later.) So, check out the updated version
here, send me comments at email@example.com.
I should start working on some of my other master plan soon. Oh, and I
have no new articles sitting in my inbox, so no new articles yet.
June 24, 1998
So you're asking yourself,
"So, what's the deal with the INC?" Or you're asking me. Who can tell
these things? Well, the thing is, I've been working on a new front page for the collection, and I'm looking
for some serious feedback. If you hate it, or have suggestions on
changing it, I really need to know. So drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and tell me what you think. And maybe I can be conned into adding new
stuff, as well.
June 11, 1998
I'm adding five new
articles to the INC, and a new section, Game
Quotes!, because I know there are good ones out there. I'm debating
if I'm going to work on a mock-up for a new front page for the INC for
Beth to look at today or work. I'm leaning toward the former, since I
don't feel great. Oh, and tomorrow is my 25th Birthday (happy birthday to
me cha cha cha) so I'm getting old. Nothing new will go up after that
until next week.
June 6, 1998
Okay, well it's been a tad longer
then a week, but these things happen. After the vacation, my Grandfather
died. Then I was under a deluge at work. But now, things seem to have
started to sort themselves out. There are a ton of pages to go up now.
May 8, 1998 This will be my last update for a
week. Vacation Ho!
April 22, 1998
Another Em's Life Update!
Basically it comes down to this. I'm losing my mind. I have more to do
then I can shake a stick at. Pretty soon they're gonna commit me to
someplace with rubber walls and JELLO.
But in the meantime, I HTMLed a few more articles, and some of them
had 1998 dates on them. Huzzah! The best of the INC starts to rear
April 15, 1998
Beth has sent me a small
selection of some of the articles to be added which are backlogged. So
now I'm playing super catchup with the INC.
February 20, 1998
Check out Steve Feldon's list of all the characters from the books --
even the little guys who only appear in one place! He's still working on it
(there are always N+1 bugs), so if you find any errata, send it to him
(his address is at the bottom of his page).
February 16, 1998
To reassure my Servitors
some more, I do some fiction and adventures...
January 28, 1998
My Servitors seem to
think I may have Fallen, just because Xmas (with travel), cons, and getting
sick kept me from putting stuff up for a while. Shame on them. Check out
the Rogues' Gallary and Movie trailer links!
January 26, 1998
<cough, hack> Well, I've
gotten over: Christmas in Austin, Texas (I live in NH) with relatives; Arisia
(SF con in Boston, MA); and the week-long cold/sore throat from Hell, mostly.
Oh, yeah, and, like, real work on FotM. And
there's some fiction updates, and some Dark Victory updates, and probably some
other stuff floating around.
Back to the INC Mainpage.
