Happily, this website will now not be closing at the end of January 2023 as we have now worked out an alternate deal with our webhosts.
We would like to thank all our visitors for their continued support, and we hope to see you all again one day.
We are a community website that began on the 23rd January 1999, moved to this domain name on the 15th May 2000, and published writings up until the late aught's. A number of members from this old community are still in contact, and from time-to-time may drop a new story or chapter in an ongoing story. At this present time, the only unfinished work is Rise of Tyannahn by blundashock.
As some people on the Interwebs don't believe we started in 1999, here is the lack of proof from Wayback Machine which only started indexing us from the early 2000s.
Then after many years, we became the entire domain we are still at.
All content is the rightful/wrongful property of the authors, credit/blame and a link back to this site would be appreciated.
We have created an independent music share page featuring a number of electronic artists, provided with full permissions to embed. We also include as many links for each artist as possible. If you want to get in on the project action, see the link below for more info.

The original Land of Thud, which consisted of many hundreds of entries across multiple threads from numerous contributors and spawned a lot of spin-off stories, has been lost to the mists of time and is unlikely to be republished. A short dream sequence of the place can be found.
