I checked on The Isles PBeM website, and from the looks of it, Roy may have taken it down. I haven't heard anything from him or others regarding the Isles PBeM game, so if you hear anything specific, be sure to drop me a line and let me know, so that i can help spread the word.
Because I have too much PBM stuff to do, already, I decided a couple of weeks ago to start a new blog. I'm already falling behind with it, so when all is said and done, it may not work out. There's a link to it further down below, if you're interested. Maybe I can get back to it, though, in the next day or two. Currently playing in six different games of Alamaze, simultaneously, probably isn't conducive to me trying to write about all six of those games, along with the other PBM stuff that I tinker with. If I had it to do over, again, I'd probably go with a different choice of wordpress sub-domain names. Overall, it has a pretty clean look, I think. I'm sure that I'll decide something, sometime. And if not, then it can fall into eventual obscurity as just another PBM-related digital trinket that's out there, somewhere, if you know what I mean.
I wrote to Lee Kline at Reality Simulations, Inc. recently, to inquire of her if it would be OK for me to go ahead and release the PDF copy of the Hyborian War rulebook. I want to give her sufficient time to look through it, and see if she wants anything changed or added to it. So maybe - just maybe - that might be something to look forward to sometime in the foreseeable future. No promises, though.
A few days ago, I sent an e-mail to Sean Cleworth, the fellow who runs Ilkor: Dark Rising, to see what was going on with that game. No word back from him, yet, though. He lives in South Africa, and that country's electrical grid is really suffering, and has been for years, and still will be for the foreseeable future. It's a really terrible situation, and there's no overnight fix for it. We have it really good, here, by comparison, where reliability of electricity is concerned.
