The Pangolin Saloon
« on: July 11, 2010, 10:13:01 PM »
Back in the days when I was a young, brash Inquiaitor, I often visited this depot of forbidden knowledge:

http://members.fortunecity.com/pangolinsaloon/rr/rrindex.html

Good to see it's still around, even if no longer active.  It was a great source for characters, equipment, adventure ideas, etc.  Most of it is still intact.

Enjoy

Excellent resource, thanks for posting it, just having a brief read through and already seen several ideas I'll probably pick up!

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

My problem with the Pangolin Saloon is that the good bits are swamped under all sorts of over-powered rules and over-blown nonsense.  It'd have been far better if they'd peer reviewed stuff properly before posting it.  Thus I'd advise people planning to use stuff from that site to get some feedback from their GM or from members of the 'Clave before doing so.

Oh, I'm not denying that there's some good stuff - it's a site I've often used. Unfortunately there's also loads of stuff I wouldn't touch for one reason or another. It's a good resource as long as you bear in mind that not everything is of equal quality.

Well, it seems Pangolin Saloon is long dead.  Did anybody make any attempt to salvage some of the content?  It stretched from the great to the not so much, but I enjoyed a lot of the characters.

Thanks

To reveal one of the tricks that helped me recover many of the old Inquisitor articles - the Wayback Machine:

https://archive.org/web/

It's not perfect - it often only has a few infrequent "snapshots" of sites that may not include all of their pages/images/whatever, and there's some things that completely flummox it (it's terrible on forums, and wasn't able to properly archive the GW sites since they put in a page to redirect you to local sites), but it is still a jaw dropping project that seeks to preserve modern human knowledge.

They do have some snapshots of the Pangolin Saloon, and they seem to be fairly complete.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

You can also tell the Wayback Machine to snapshot any pages you're looking at now, so they'll still be there later.

When i spotted this thread a few weeks ago I checked out one of the snapshots and I could open most of the links. Have you tried all of the archived versions?

Obviously above my pay grade.  Any help would be appreciated.
