After the site outage of the other day, it's become clear to me that keeping a backup copy of the Wars is of paramount importance. I've already been making a hard copy (paper in binders) for myself. However, I think now I will begin making a PDF copy as well... for one thing, it's transferable and doesn't weigh 8 pounds a binder.

However, the realization of this transferability has caused a thought to cross my mind.

And so, I'm posing a question:
Would any of you be interested in paying a nominal fee for PDFs of the Wars chapters (maybe $3 for a large chapter, or a set of short ones), or a larger fee for a hard copy thereof?
Please let me know your thoughts on this.

I was once part of another fun online roleplaying forum. Then-site outage, and the archives of fun times and great writing were gone for good.
So heck yes I will.
And, thank you Sib.

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.

Unfortunatly, it's on hiatus-people were just too busy to continue. But stop by and post! It'd be great to get it restarted, and who knows, there may be others interested.
