New Home for the Website

As many of you may already know, the website got hacked...again. 

At this point, I'm officially giving up on Wordpress. The hosting service is unwilling to dedicate more time to my doomed website, and I don't have the technical ability to keep it from being constantly hacked. The posts I took a lot of time crafting are gone -- and that really, really sucks -- but the PDF releases are still available through DTRPG. Ever since we placed the PDFs over there, we've been doing most of our distribution through their associated sites anyway. So I'm cutting our losses.

I've decided, rather than keep torturing myself dealing with an aspect of the project that isn't writing games, we're going to simplify the site. I'll be running a basic Blogger site now at hebanon.blogspot.com from now on. I may get the domain name switched back to it's original title soon if I get the hacked site sufficiently nuked. In that case, I'll let you know. 

You'll still get news about all our developments. The only thing that will change is that the interface is a little simplier, the PDF links take you to DTRPG rather than directly downloading, and the whole thing won't constantly be hijacked by extremist groups (hopefully).

In other, more relevant news, The Wives of March should be ready for release soon. You can here playtests over at RPPR: Part 1 and Part 2. I'll send out another update when it is ready to go. There are also more episodes of RPPR's Game Designer's Workshop in the pipe for those of you excited to hear more about Red Markets, our next big project.

Thanks for reading. Stay tuned.

      Thanks for looking out guys. I'm aware of the web archive. That's how I rebuilt the site last time it got hacked. Next thing I knew three days of my life were missing and I had no work to show for it beyond work I'd already done. The hope was that, in rebooting the site and rebuilding everything, the content would be fixed and remain stable. I just do not have the energy to do that again when I could be doing actual work.

      Hey, Caleb. It's not like it's all gone, web archive has a June copy of the front page here:
      http://web.archive.org/web/20130609011127/http://hebanongames.com/

      And Google cache has a lot of text content cached. Type "site:hebanongames.com" in Google and you'll see the list of results. Click on the small dot near any result and select "Cached" from the menu that appears. Google cache only stores text, though.

      If you want a cached version of a particular post, google for something like "Musings of a Tabletop Noob site:hebanongames.com" and there's a good chance Google has it cached. So you can copy-paste any post to the new blog if you feel like it.

      G+? Good heavens no. I have no use for G+. Glad some like it, but you're better off on blogspot.

      Kobold Press found some relief from Pornish Spambots with a G+ community. It's a bit of a hack, but hey, why not? Good luck!
