  1. I didn't change much from the encounters except to clean up some of the syntax. What I did was add a couple more allies, made 15 blights, added a couple of monsters and created a PDF rulebook. Oh, and I made the Dreaming deck which - instead of the Dreaming Ancient Ones sheet - is just a card for each non-DL AO to save some room. I added some corruptions, madness and injuries as well. I think that's about all the changes from before. I'm glad it's seeing some use! It's looking like I won't be able to retrieve my Arkham Horror stuff for a few more months. Bleh…
  2. OK!!! Finally have the new files updated, expanded (yes, there's more) and cleaned up a bit. Here are the SE and I will just replace the existing picture links with the new ones when I get around to it. I swear, uploading this has been the most difficult part of this whole process. Thank you for all your input!!

  3. WOW! Apparently, dropbox cannot handle all the traffic generated by these links. I had no idea of their policy for traffic until now. Thank you for your interest!! Because of the run-around they offer as "service" I will not be utilizing that site anymore. I was wondering if anyone knows of any other similar sites (with better service). I will be posting them on Boardgamegeek once I have it complete since it is such a lengthy process for that site. Any tips or links would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again!
  4. Here are the links to the files on my digital dropbox account. Ancient Ones: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Ancient%20Ones.zip Board: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Board.zip Cards (Items, Encounters, Special): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Cards.zip Dreamlands Icon: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Dreamlands.zip Guardians: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Guardians.zip Heralds: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Heralds.zip Icon Plugin: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Icons.zip Investigators: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Investigators.zip Locations: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Locations.zip Monsters: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Monsters.zip Nemesis Plugin: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Nemesis%20Card.zip Rules: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95481032/SE%20files/Rules.zip I think it should include all you'd need to make this all work. If you have any questions or comments or the links aren't working properly or if I'm missing something please let me know. I'll do what I can to fix it. Altogether, the files add up to about 901 MB. Allow yourself a while to download them. Thanks!
  5. That's a very good idea for play testing. Thanks. I hadn't yet conceptualized that far. I'll get on making an index very shortly and put it up on a .pdf or something. At 24-30 encounters per location, I'm not sure on the logistics of determining which is which. It looks like a deck of cards (ala the other DL expansion out there) is the way to go. When crafting the encounters, I documented the probabilities of the existing game and expansions (an exhaustive practice) and tried to make them blend well (positive and negative outcomes) which eventually led to my creating Heralds as well, just to balance the Guardians. I'm still thinking about trimming down many of the cards (fewer Allies and Nemeses, fewer encounters, etc.) but I haven't yet come to any conclusions. Hence the premature dissemination here. I'm looking for feedback from some of those who have the time and interest in contributing. I recently moved across country with half of my stuff in an old pick-up -- Beverly Hillbillies style -- and probably won't be able to make the trip back to get my Arkham stuff (not to mention the rest of my clothes, furniture, etc.) until the end of this year or beginning of next so play testing for me, anyway, is on hold. I think it's fair to say that I'm going through a few withdrawal symptoms. Thanks for the signature heads up. After I asked, I dug around a bit and found out how. I'm still just waiting for the Dropbox files to upload so I'll have a hyperlink at the ready. Hey look, it's done! After I get all this squared away (version 1.0, anyway) I'll go back to my original - and much smaller - expansion, Mountains of Madness. It will take a LOT less printing out than will this one… thankfully.
  6. Before I finished my current expansion (Dreamlands) I scoured the web for anything Arkham Horror related. I've got a gigantic file of all kinds of stuff compiled over the past year or two. If we do end up making that one go-to resource for expansions, please let me know if I can contribute in any way.
  7. Thanks! It's nice to know people can appreciate how much time it actually takes to craft an expansion of this size. I just don't know how I'm going to print it once I'm ready (I still have to drive back to WA from TN to get the other half of my stuff - which includes Arkham). At this point I'm thinking I'll buy another Dunwich Horror expansion (plus two more small-box - I've done the math and this is a bear to print out) and print the card stuff on sticky paper. Everything else, (heralds, guardians, AO's, investigators and rules) I'll try to match to card stock as best as possible. The board may be a different story. I'm leaning toward pasting it onto the extra Dunwich board but time will tell. I've got a while yet before that happens. As for uploading the SE files, I'm syncing them onto Digital Dropbox as we speak. I've used it before but not for personal use or for files this large. It takes a while to sync up all the files. Once they are complete (which at this rate, it says another 16 hours) I will definitely post a link to all the SE goodies. I'm looking forward to hearing any feedback and making changes as necessary. As for boardgamegeek, I still haven't quite figured out the method of getting files uploaded. It says it takes a couple of weeks for review, so I'll probably just wait for Dropbox to finish instead. P.S. How do I promote this via signature? Still a very new contributor, long-time lurker… insert pun here.
  8. I just overcame this issue myself for the Dreamlands Expansion I posted. I exported the SE files into JPG's. Then I loaded those JPG's into Photobucket. Then I took the direct link of those from there and pasted it into the Insert/Edit Image function in this forum. Then I just made the width to 600 and it took care of the rest. I hope this helps!
