    Default Archiving the D&D 3.5 Archives: Consolidation efforts for posterity

    Archiving the D&D 3.5 Archives: Consolidation efforts for posterity

    I Hit the character limit in the List of obscure first party sources and so I moved this here. The plan is to try to get everything neatly collected. But some stuff is already totally gone. For example, some materials on "Realms by Night" is no longer accessible on Wizards server, although you can find it mirrored on a dedicated forgotten realms page. I can't post that one here due to that as it might be a breach of terms of OGL service. Sorry. Here is what I have so far.

    The plan is to eventually sift the materials along a fluff/crunch axis and by subsetting. But for now, it's just gonna be a big ugly list. Red entries are ones that I need to go back and be a completist about later.

    It's worth mentioning that we also have some community backups of the old (now deleted) forums, as well as several Dropbox mirrors of the WotC web content in the Index of 3.X WotC Threads.

    Thanks Giles!

    I have added gearing up for eberron and the sharn inquisitive archives.

    Question:
    What is the best format for the mark of heroes or xendric expeditions archives. They are so robust!...and kinda pointless to save...I guess there is a lot of good fluff around the caldyn fragments...

    I wouldn't say they're pointless—I mean, I understand those adventures are relatively rare nowadays, but if you have them, then you could totally still play them, and all the stuff in those web articles would totally be useful.

    True. I'll do them last. I'm finding a bunch of uncategorized stuff on the forgotten realms archive that doesn't fit into discrete features, Like this halfling pepper spitting techinique:

    Ursuma Pepper Powder: This powder is ground from very hot peppers imported from Chondath and mixed with a secret alchemical substance. When put in a person's mouth, the user takes 1 point of subdual damage. One round later, the pepper powder can be spat into a foe's eyes. If the spitter hits with a ranged touch attack (10-foot range increment), the recipient must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC 13) or take 1d6 points of subdual damage and be blinded for 1d6 rounds. "Spitting" is considered an exotic weapon. Unless proficient, spitters suffer the standard -4 penalty to spit attacks with Ursuma pepper powder. Ursuma pepper powder is not sold, and therefore has no price. Its weight is negligible.
    or these saurials! or the master harper

    Plus there are all of the art pages. I'll finish up getting the rest of the generic setting materials put up, then we can make a master list to the gaming materials a la the archive of obscure 1st party sources so a person knows where to look for stuff.

    I did some digging, and I actually managed to find some of the old RPGA adventures archived on the old Wizards Community site, so I was curious to see what that Xen'drik Expeditions and Mark of Heroes stuff was about. Turns out they're not included, though. It's pretty much all 4e stuff AFAICT.
