    Psymia got a reaction from kbalazsa in Unofficial Campaign Tracker for Descent!   
    I guess Alarin means that he wrote to me (since i'm a content-mod on wikia).
    However i stopped contributing new content on wikia (i still try to keep it clean of obviously wrong stuff).
    I work on the descent-community wiki which has the complete information about all new cards:

    Psymia got a reaction from CaptainJaguarShark in Forums are not Secure. Certificate Error.   
    Well they haven't renewed the certificate yet.
    Microsoft/Google is not involved in this process.
    FFG seems to gets their certificates from Amazon, which in turn gets their intermediate CAs from the Starfield Services Root CA.
    It doesn't cause a security vulnerability.
    You browser simply warns you that the page you're visiting may not be provided by the server which claims to be FFG.

    Take a look at the pages 26/27 and 85 for examples of the CRRG at http://crrg.descent-community.org
    Regarding your second question: You can't arbitrarily interrupt your movement.
    You may only expand for a valid interruption reason.
    Using your second action as movement is a valid interrupt reason.

    Psymia got a reaction from any2cards in D2e Companion Card Viewer   
    Yeah the wrong character in Ardus Ix'Erebus was annoying me for a while as well.
    I just run a site-wide string-replace "Ardus Ix’Erebus" -> "Ardus Ix'Erebus"
    I hope this is the last i hear from this...
    Regarding Dispossessed. I think both exist right now.
    I will take a look to clean this up. I guess it's more an issue of inconsistency that some places are still use "Dispossessed" instead of "The Dispossessed".
    (This is the part about the wiki is not done regarding Monsters/Lieutenants)

    Psymia reacted to Sadgit in New expansion wanted   
    Zaltyre, Painkeeper any myself are currently putting together a community expansion. We are in the play-testing stage at the moment. The working title is Weapons of War as it includes Zaltyre's great mini campaign of the same name. Weapons of War will be an expansion to D2e very similar to the official small box expansions (Trollfens, Lair of the Wyrm, etc.). It will include high quality, thoroughly play-tested components developed by the community.
    Obviously, we will not ship physical components. However, we will provide all the digital materials needed together with detailed instructions for how to obtain physical stuff (e.g. cards via printerstudio, minis from Reaper Bones, etc.). As we will not be able to add new map tiles, Weapons of War will include a new, challenging coop variant as an alternative play mode instead. This coop mode is called Road to Peril and will allow playing the Weapons of War and the Heirs of Blood campaigns without a human OL.

    List of components: 

    2 new heroes (1 healer and  1 mage)
    2 new classes 
    2 new monsters 
    1 new condition
    1 new mini campaign (Weapons of War)
    1 new search deck
    components for Road to Peril
    1 rule book

    Psymia got a reaction from any2cards in How do you organize everything on your table?   
    I'm usually the overlord.
    I have a seat at the head of the table. On the table i keep my Plotcards, Monstercards, Overlordcards and discardpile. I have my own set of cice. 
    I have two additional chairs left and right slightly behind me with all the boxes where all not (yet) used material is. 
    My players are at the side of the table and have their normal material: Herosheet, inventory, skills, all tokens for their specific class and hero (fatigue, health, etc.)  2 players together have a set of dice (each side of the table) 
    On the other head of the table there's a box with the leftover hero material.

    Well IMO if you go that (house rule) route, then you can remove the requirement for movement from trading altogether.
    The movement action is the "cost" of trading.

    Psymia got a reaction from Felin in Question on heroes being defeated   
    My group and I still houserule/handle our health as in Descent 1e where you start with the number of health as hearts on your sheet and take hearts away when you get damaged.
    You get KO'd when you're at 0 hearts on your sheet.
    From this point of view it makes more sense. When you get revived you get a number of health, no matter what your maximum health is.
    Regarding RAW: For me the question is: do KO'd heroes even get to perform the equip phase?

    This is shown if you are not using https.
    Not really a problem.
    The "real" problem is, that if you try to use https, the alternate names for the certificate don't match the URL.
    In the "Certificate Subject Alt Name" there are currently these names:
    DNS Name: ftp.web0092.zxcs.be
    DNS Name: mail.web0092.zxcs.be
    DNS Name: pop.web0092.zxcs.be
    DNS Name: smtp.web0092.zxcs.be
    DNS Name: web0092.zxcs.be
    DNS Name: www.web0092.zxcs.be
    This list should also contain "DNS Name: d2etracker.com"
    @Atom4geVampire: is that a shared virtual server, or something you control directly? Do you have the ability to upload your own certificates?

    I'm adding some improvements to the box as well, based on some grievances I had with my original design.
    Maybe I should start a Kickstarter or something

    A kickstarter may not be a bad idea.
    However what i've heard from other people starting one, you want to be pretty far with what you want to do before you make it public.
    And be very sure how much you're going to spend on actually producing the product, otherwise you might end up paying more then what you get.
    (That' being said, i certainly would back such a kickstarter :D)

    I added a photo of my act 2 monster stack (filename act2_monsters_height.jpg).
    Again, slightly squeezed and used to be a lot higher when the sleeves were new.

    Just recounted the cards. 67 as well.
    The image of the act 1 stack shows a height of 36mm. Not sure where you got the 33 mm from
    As mentioned before, IMO the time how long the cards have been sleeved makes a huge difference how think a stack becomes.

    Hi everyone
    Almost as if Sadgit had planned it, the release of the excellent CRRG was two days before my planned release of a new Descent Wiki.
    So here it is at http://wiki.descent-community.org
    Why a new Wiki? We already have one.
    I'm right now with 1500 edit gap to the next the most active committer on the already existing descent wiki at wikia.
    I wrote lots of templates to make the pages look uniform and changed almost all of the pages. However wikia doesn't allow access to the site-wide css and doesn't allow changes on the skin-css.
    This limits severely what i can do. Since i'm basically the only one actively working on it i could as well just move to my own wiki. Wikia is overloaded with advertisement. 3/4 of the page is advertisement. Adblock fixes parts of that but it still is unbearable. My main problem is that wikias focus is on the adverts and not on the content.
    I want to have a wiki without any adverts.
    Running different website testing software, a given descent-community wiki site is consistently about 1/4 the size of a comparable wikia site. (~800KB~1MB  vs.  3.5MB~5MB depending on advertisement) The mobile skin of wikia is broken.
    Like... really unfixable broken.
    My goal is to be able to visit the wiki with my mobile phone to look something up fast without the page being broken. Removal of the visual editor. It just doesn't work. Whichever page is edited with the visual editor contains afterwards broken code and has to be fixed by hand. Better not enable it at all than have to cope with this mess. TLDR;
    No advertisement Working MobileSkin Access to backend (css, extensions, layout)  
    Current State
    The descent-community wiki is a fork of the wikia wiki (content wise). It uses MediaWiki 1.27.1 (update to 1.28.0 is in the pipeline) New Look-and-Feel (skin, layout, etc.) is complete Most of the cleanup of the conversion-damage is done (i keep finding small stuff...)  
    Next Steps
    Currently doing cleanup on stuff which wasn't possible on the wikia (e.g. proper gallery) Add support to the Card Template for Monsters and Lieutenants Add a template for Heroes Convert all the missing pages which aren't using the templates yet (mostly plot-cards, i could use some help on that) Convert the existing templates to use classes instead of inline-css (this allows the templates to look better on mobile since i can have skin specific classes) An updated list can be found here: http://wiki.descent-community.org/Todo
