Hello all.


I am thinking, wouldn't it be great if one can have like an international group of 
Deathwatch-inclined people who's dedicated to making fan material for the game?

 

And making a certain spot on the Internet where those fans can show their material
to others of their kind so that people can work together on these matters? Just a thought.

Yeah that would be great although I'm not sure a new place is needed some some degree of fan material has already been posted on these forums. Perhaps having a stickied thread to collect all the fan material posted could make it easier for people to find and use such material.

Yes, a central place where people can upload their stuff will be the key for this attempt.

You can't upload maps or artwork in this forum. And most people don't like reading long adventures in a forum like this. Having the possibility to upload PDF-files is really basic. 

 

 

EDIT: And, as proven in my own failing attempt to simply quote your words, this forum software has some severe disadvantages...

Graf: I thought that PDFs could be uploaded on the forum as I recall downloading them but if its true then of course a site where such things are possible would give a major advantage. Also in regards to the qouting system I agree that it is a digital horror.

This has to look funny; a quote on a missed quote! :) I myself did exactly what you did, on another thread, could not produce functioning quotes on the other guy's replies (there were several) and it all looked like crap! Anyhow, nice to see your answers. I already have a Photobucket place for some of my maps/pics for the first The Emperor Protects (TEP) scenario: "Price of Hubris", plus some other stuff. Here's the link:

But, we would need some other public place or some such spot. Or...?
