Jymset's site, love it for the listing of some of the Battletech articles from old gaming magazines.
oh wow, I keep on forgetting webring made a mirror of that thing when geocities went bust! You humble me, kind sir.
EDIT: back when I started hanging out on the net regularly to get my BT fixes (think 14 years ago) the 2 sites I most relied on were Wars in the Inner Sphere (a small tribute to that is on my own page) and http://www.mordel.net
- the latter is still around and the most heinously forgotten still-active page. What you get is:
- full stats of all the still-valid hard copy RS volumes released in the mid-90s to early 00s... and the ability to rate and review them! (also a list of products up to the end of FASA days, again with the interactive options)
- a forum that 10 years ago was one of the most active on the net. This is the core of the problem, as these very forums were probably the death knell to Mordel's
- ... the chance to hang out in Mordel's, the notable pilot of the original PP Thunderbolt! Yes, ladies and gents, Mordel's was the community that started the debate that ultimately led to Project Phoenix
- see the first point? You can also enter your own units into the database which can then be reviewed and rated by your peers. But will be sorted into the database for posterity. This is the single most unique feature of the website that I have yet to see replicated anywhere. Usually hang out on the design boards? Well, you best go visit Mordel's, then
Edit 2: re Mordel's forum. I think it's pretty telling that this forum's rules were based on his, and while since much-modified, he's still credited as partially responsible. Makes me smile every time I reread the rules (as anyone should).
