Just uploaded most of the yahoo groups files to here

Recommended Posts

Since Yahoo Groups is unstable, I copied over most of the files to here (except, as of this writing, the photos and desktop wallpapers). There wasn't a nephilim section, so I used the tagging system to keep the files organized. Hopefully this doesn't cause any problems. If the mods have anything to say, I will defer to their judgment. Thanks!

Really useful, thanks, even though I had to go through what seemed like hundreds of new posts!

Do you have a Zip File with everything in one file? That would be really useful.

Wow.  I uploaded a scan of the entire raw Selenim translation with editorial?  What was I thinking?

Oh, yeah, I was thinking that it was never going to see the light of day.  And, besides, the French books were always available to the polyliterate.  That upload was, what, 2005?  Fortunes were very uncertain at that point.  Dim, even.

But look what's happened in the decade since!

!i!

There were about 90 files I uploaded from four different yahoo groups archives. I could zip them up, sure, but I don't know whether everything would be particularly useful to you. At least here, the files may be sorted fairly easily with the tagging system. And you can put comments on them. And stuff.

I didn't upload the Nephilim redux/rewrite files or the unofficial translation of the selenim books since those were specified to be private by the sharers. I also saved an archive of some ancient fansites from decades ago, which might have some useful ideas.

I had plenty of ideas for revising the selenim rules, beyond what was originally planned for the English adaptation (according to the notes, selenim were going to have invented the precursor of stasis objects, meaning they would have their own equivalent that was absent in the French original). Among other things, it might make more sense to introduce the black moon spells for the existing occult sciences rather than introduce new black moon skills. The sorcery and alchemy rules were revised extensively in Enlightened Magic (unfortunately summoning never got a similar treatment) and Saturnian magic was introduced in the Secret Societies book, so it makes sense from that perspective. Unless we intend to overhaul the magic system again to take into account all eight elements.
