For the convenience of whomsoever wishes to have them, I've temporarily uploaded the DM sourcebooks (not the Magazines I'm afraid, because they're too large a file-size for the connection I'm currently on) so they've got internet hosting until the site is back up.

I'll be taking them down once DM is back up and running - or should anyone have issues with my doing so.

Their folder is below:
EDIT: Dark Magenta is back up, so link removed.

I've just uploaded the Dark Magenta Issues as well (to be found on the same link as above), so those are mirrored as well.

As before, to be taken down when DM is back up, but there's demand for this stuff. No reason to deprive the people.

Update:
As Dark Magenta's site is back up, the DM files have been taken off the download list, so you'll need to link to the site for them now (as is appropriate).

...okay, to tell the truth, they're still on the hosting. I've just disabled downloads on them.

I've done a minor organisation change on the hosting, shifting all Inquisitor files, be they "official" GW releases or Fan-made content (okay, this is currently just what I've written...) so they're in respective sub-folders of the main folder linked from the default mediafire.com/MarcoSkoll address.

Nothing major, but as the Revised Armoury seems to be pulling almost as many downloads as the official files, I decided to stop hiding it away in a dark corner of the hosting, but wanted to make sure that it wasn't mistaken for "official".

And on that note, I've got to get back to writing said armoury.

After a lengthy analysis and processing by my own teams, data extracted from archives of the now ended "Project Exterminatus" which I have received from one of my agents in the field has been entered into the datastream for viewing, assessment and use by my Inquisitorial peers.

I must warn my colleagues that potential issues with the nature of this data may cause it to be declared heretical by the Inquisitor Lords and require it to be removed from the datastream. Due to these possible complications, this data will not be compiled within the main collection and will be filed separately in order to make it easier for the texts to be withdrawn from circulation.

The files in question are organised in such a fashion so they may be found via the standard datastream access address. For direct access, the information can be found both available in collected and individual forms.

Dull OOC Version: Some Exterminatus scans from someone I promised I'd keep anonymous. They're not going to be part of the main download, because GW could quite reasonably get much more shirty about these being online than the old SG site stuff, and it'll be a bigger problem to sort out if I bundle it all in.

These files and their folder can be found by going through the default mediafire.com/MarcoSkoll link.

I thought I aught to let you know, but the bulk download doesn't open or unzip. Well, not on my computer anyway!

I get an error message saying files are corrupted.

It's possible you've only achieved a partial download - some internet connections can interrupt large downloads.

If you've not got a ~49.5 MB file, you'll have to try and download it again. If it should consistently cut out partway, then I haven't got any easy solution.

At some point, I might be able to organise splitting the download up into about 5 "bite-size" chunks for people with difficult connections (as opposed to downloading each of the 95 files one by one), but that'd take quite a bit of time on my part, and I'm not currently not blessed with lots of said resource.

So, try again. If it keeps going wrong, I'll try and arrange something, but don't expect it immediately.

Has anyone yet to print these in a single volume?  I was thinking about getting a volume of the essentials printed for my buddy as an Xmas present.  Which ones would you consider "essential"?  What's a page count for these items totaled?

The stuff from White Dwarf and Exterminatus can be found in the two now-OOP Annuals. (Sometimes found on the eBuy)

The stuff from Fanatic and Fanatic Online - so far, it's unprinted and, given the reduction of support for Specialist Games, I can't see them suddenly deciding to.

Essential? None of them are essential, in the sense that you don't really have to go beyond the rulebook, and you can be pretty flexible about that anyway.

I couldn't really pick out any to particularly recommend either - I bring them up as and when needed. There are a few I'd give a miss, but that's personal opinion.

Haven't a clue. Remember though, some of them are reference sheets, characters, blank character sheets - not actual articles.

As with Marco, I wouldn't consider any of them to be 'essential', but some of the more interesting or useful ones that spring to mind include; the Alien Generator, the article on the Ordo Sicarius, the Chaos psychic powers, the Eldar article, the one on the Arbites and the article on Explorators, the Escape from Cephalon battle report, Gav's article on marines, the one on Navigators, the Sisters article, Lectures on the Wych and Derek's Piercing the Shadows article on the philosophy of the game.

That's far from an exhaustive list, there are other good ones too...
I like to remember things my own way... Not necessarily the way they happened.

I have to be honest, but I have a nigh on complete archive of all the Inquisitor files in electronic form (including Exterminatus 1 through 7, but that might be Marco's file and the INQ annual 2002), some were aquired by less legitimate means, plus I do have practically everything in hard copy (so creating other electronic copies may be possible in the future) and I'm currently working on doing the same for the Conspiracy series (starting with the Cirian Legacy). Saussure is probably going to slap me something chronic for this, but PM me if your looking for anything in particular...

Not up to me what you distribute in your free time, Macabre - but let's not conduct any more of the business on the main Conclave board, please.

Sorry, Boss. I'm just trying to keep the hobby alive by making it more accessible to all than GW is currently.
