Slowly Updating Depreciated Pages:
Category: Default
Hey everyone! It's been awhile and I thought I would update a few of PADnD's pages that were defunct as of a PHP update. Times are sure changing .. and the code of old has come and gone. Anyway, we updated the Ultimate Art Gallery to rid of all 700 errors being thrown, as well as the news feed and several other pages that we almost impossible to read.

Please let us know if we missed any, I'm sure there are plenty more. We'll slowly get em all I hope. Cheers!

PADnD.com is Now Mobile Friendly!:
Category: Default
So I spent a few hours re-coding the website today to hopefully make this website more mobile friendly. I only have a few devices to test with, but it's working perfectly on those (which happen to be both android devices). All modern browsers and most modern cell phones "should" detect that PADnD has a mobile compatible header now and load it automatically.

A few things that need to be address though are the menus. Yes, we had to dump those to make the site conform. However you will see our menu icons in the middle of the page still that take you to various popular areas of the site. Either way, it should be all good now. If there are strange anomalies happening, please report it on our general forums. Thanks everyone.

Neverwinter Nights Server - Arkuth PW:
Category: Default

So I thought it was about time to start promoting our new Neverwinter Nights 1 (2002 MP game). We've combined both of our past massive worlds into 1 gigantic realm. Boasting over 800 areas and rising, We cater to to the hard-core gamers. Those looking for longevity in a game. Role-players are welcome, but not enforced. This is a DM free server. No pushy rules, no severe punishments. Thousands of custom scripts make this module like no other. Tons of quests, henchmen and unique areas make this module the most realistic PnP experience you can get in a MP game. Full details on our forums.

You can find our server under "PW ACTION" or by direct connecting to either of the following IPs

World Building! - (It All Starts with a Map):
Category: Default
Creating a realistic realm for me is the pinnacle of being a Dungeon Master. Not only does it help you as a DM picture your world as a whole, it also creates a vivid image of what your world might hold within it for your players to explore.

Here is a sample image to see what I'm doing with my newest realm and what can be done if you put your mind to it and adopt some simple programs. Join me on the forums if you care to learn how to build the ultimate realm maps!

Ultimate Art Gallery Rising from the Dead!:
Category: Default
Yup, you heard it right here!

After a huge hiatus, the Ultimate Art Gallery is back! After years of packing away photos from all across the internet and multiple attempts to get a script and server that hand not only handle the archive, but deploy it nicely... the gallery is back on PADnD.com

Copyright Notice:

There have been some issues in the past with hosting certain photos and I will admit, I have no record of who drew what and which people care or not. So please, if you see art that is owned BY YOU, please contact me via email or via PM on our forum with the specific image # (which all have listed under them) and I will remove the offending image asap.

Anyone simply pointing out that "their art work" is on our site and want them removed will simply be ignored. BE SPECIFIC as I simply don't have time to guess. Allot of art is also considered free domain. So without proper justification I will not remove the the pictures in question.

Enjoy all!

Dice Roller!:
Category: Default
I've added yet another dice roller to the website as we are having troubles with the server supporting the other ones.

Here is a really nice online dice roller for RPG's that doesn't email results, but it shows everything on screen and makes a log of the rolls on the side.

Very nice!

Site Corrections and Fixes!:
Category: Default
Hey everyone!

Figured we haven't gone around much lately to make sure everything was working correctly. So today that is exactly what we are doing. With so many pages and features this is going to take awhile.

However the first and perhaps one of the most useful things on the site is John's D&D Utilities. That was really whacko, so we spent a few hours patching that up and correcting all links and making sure it works right. Now it's fully functional as far as we can tell.

If anyone see's anything else wrong please contact me via our official forums and I'll fix it myself or throw one of the other admins on it.

Hey everyone,

Doing site upgrades sometimes becomes a huge hassel and in this case we hit a speed bump. I predicted this though, so it will be just fine shortly.

Back In The Saddle - Internet Storm!:
Category: Default
Hey everyone!

Long time no post on this homepage/ news center. It's been a very trying time in my life the last few years and I've been working hard to make free time to get PADnD running better and updated etc.

I finally found time to get our youtube channel back up and running again. I will slowly be adding back all of the great films and videos we once had before, but this time I'm going to have to try harder and avoid copyright videos as that's the reason our old channel was taken offline by YouTube admins. Either way, it will slowly grow in power once again. Please subscribe to help support this website.

Also, we are going to spend some time updating or adding some new web based games to the site. It's been awhile and they are growing old now. Some new life is required.

If there is anything missing on this site or something you would like to see added, please login or register on our official forums and send me a message or one of the other admins on PADND.com and we'll do our best to accommodate your requests.

Thanks to everyone that donated through PayPal recently. Those donations go back into this site's longevity and hosting fees 100%. Keep everything free for ever!

Site Theme Change!:
Category: Default
With much thought, opinions and deliberation we have gone back to a more original look and feel for PADnD. This new theme dates back to 2000, yet hosts some of our recent modern theme features for an over all old school, yet fast loading website.

As always, there may be some pages that don't conform properly to this new look, so please be patient. As we find them, we'll fix them Wink

Either way, the most popular theme is back ~ Long live the Borg!

New Goodies, Old Flavor!:
Category: Default
Image Have been working my coding hands to the bone lately on the site. We managed to restore ALL of the old download archive from 2003 (see downloads menu for sections). Also managed to restore all of the Bard Poems and Bard Stories pages (see Bard's Corner).

Then decided to clean up all of our old mods/admins/users on the forums. Forums are all up to date now, mods are all active and visit the site regularly.

Coded up a brand new Bard's Interactive Story board for all to use and enjoy (see Bard's Corner - Interactive Stories).

Also added tons of new videos to PlanetADnD's youtube channel including; Journey Quest seasons 1 and 2. ALL of the D&D cartoon series from the 80's. D&D Movies 2 & 3, The Born of Hope movie and more!

Old Goodies From the Past:
Category: Default
The other day I received a nice, uplifting message from one of PADnDs users. They reminded me of the past and what PADnD once meant to thousands of users and still does to the new generation. So I've decided to put some time into restoring some goodies of the past. As they are restored and IF possible I will post them on this homepage. I'll be trying my best to recover utilities/forums etc from my oldest backup from 2003. Yup, over 11 years ago. So look forward to stepping back in time. See you soon!

Drop Menu Reinstalled, Plus More!:
Category: Default
Hail travelers!

We've been brainstorming allot lately and the work has followed naturally. It's been awhile now, but we finally managed to fix the bugs in our old drop down menu at the top of the website. This menu helps people navigate a little fast and find things they might otherwise miss. It's now fully functional again.

We've also installed a few more themes for our main forum in attempt to give more flexibility for cell phones and iPads etc. It's also nice to have for general viewing.

The PADnD blog has also been upgraded to the latest word press version and restored in general.

Cleaning Up - Repairs!:
Category: Default
Doing some site maintenance again today. Someone screwed up our blog site so I'm upgrading to the latest version. Sorry to those folks who got a Trojan warning from their AV. I got the same one, it didn't do anything, but it let me know someone hacked it for sure.

Also going to change our DL center policy due to abuse. People can't seem to upload files where they belong, so I'm changing it to no-uploading. If you think there is a file we should include here on PADnD, email/PM me via our forums and I'll add it ASAP.

Hail travelers of the net!

We'd like to invite all those who enjoy great web-based strategy games back into the loop. We have recently re-worked and upgraded our long time closed game "Star Wars Galaxy Wars".

By popular request and years of waiting for a new engine release we can finally offer this great game once again. All new ship graphics, ships to buy, planets and game play offer everyone an exceptional challenge.

Starwars Galaxy Wars 0.40 Coming Soon!:
Category: Default
Well, found a bit more free time to get coding the latest version of SGW up and running again. Had lots of emails and requests about this long time game we had running on and off and decided that I personally would like to play it again sooo... off we go!

I'll work on the game over the next week or so now that I'm in my slow season. With that said, it will take awhile for me to remap the galaxy and convert everything to star wars instead of the default traders game. I will also be updating code and whatnot to make the game unique and fun.

Any comments can be directed at myself via our official forums Big Grin

~Later and Happy Halloween folks!

A Chance to Breathe!:
Category: Default
Yes, it's been quite a while since my last news post. Things have been pretty slow in D&D land. Our custom online realm is coming along nicely offline and it shouldn't be to long (maybe September) before I start adding new content for people to read and/or use.

If your new to this site, which I doubt, you can always find some internet buddies online to play D&D with via our gaming forums. Live PBMB games are always taking place there with some of the best DM's on the web.

Our if you just have questions or need some help, join us on the main forums, the regulars are always willing to lend an opinion or two.

World of Arkuth Unveiled!:
Category: Default
Well, I've been working on my new realm for about a month now and figured it was time to share what I've done thus far. I've ported most of the infamous 1E classes that were not in 2E over to this world with working compatible copies for all to use at will (IE assassin, monk etc). I've posted some custom races for Arkuth as well.

This world is going to be my passion as you will all soon see. This project will grow rapidly. I've already posted a large amount of detail for the initial kingdoms my group is starting in. Maps, government systems, tech levels, wealth explanations, gods, some places, new monsters and much much more!

At this point I can't post any further details about the current areas my PC's are in as any good DM should understand.

Any gods, monsters requests etc can be posted on Arkuth's forum and I'll see if I can get er done asap.

At a later time I will be adding PDF downloads of all the custom classes / races and monsters.

Arkuth is a second edition AD&D campaign world free to use by all.

New 2E D&D Realm Soon to be Unvailed!:
Category: Default
Hey folks. I've been busting my ass lately on an all new realm for DM's and players alike to enjoy. The new realm is now known as "Arkuth - The Sundered Lands" and will be detailed in full, online and free for all to use. I've started off with most of the basic world design, including full global maps, globe view, custom 2E classes, custom 2E races, calendar, gods, ships of sea, laws, equipment lists, Social Hierarchy of Nobility, a few nations, a few cities and a few monsters.

Please join me on the forums to discuss this new realm and share your incite on some of my custom races, classes and monsters.

Wild Surges Back Online!:
Category: Default
While I spend hours looking through files to update and add back to the site I came across an old script that allot of folks email me about and ask if I can get it working. For some reason I never seemed to get things just right to allow these surges to print out randomly... or work at all for that matter. BUT hey! We got good news folks. I managed to recode this little gem of a utility today and it works fantastic once again. So for all you wild mages out there or DM's that need a quick result. Try out PADnD's random wild surge generator Wink

You can find it under our "online utilities" section to your left side of the screen under the main menu.


Rolls from a database of 7000 wild surges!

Starting Anew, Kind of:
Category: Default
Well, the process begins and it won't be any small task as I can tell by the activity on this site. Tis is an old saying but stands the test of time "build it and they will come". So, that's what we'll do Wink

So, we started redoing pages and adding them last night. Starting off with the most popular pages first (the utilities and quiz pages). Some are already done, see them to your left on the menu side of this site.

More to come... of course.

The Borg Refines Their Cube Once Again:
Category: Default
Well, we tried to email our users to inform them of this massive task and our server just couldn't email 4000+ users. However we did managed to email some of our moderators so things should get back to normal soon enough.

Anyway, onto the explanation; It's been almost a year now since I could really sit down and take a look around the net at other D&D sites and see why PADnD seemed to be dwindling in active user numbers. The only things I personally could come up with was our size.... can you really get to many pages? Can a site get to fancy? Can it get to confusing and drive users off? I've come to the conclusion that YES all of these things are killing the Borg Sad

SO! It's time for a new age. A time to bring back the old, simple, organized, larger font, no portal, maximum participation site of old. Is that possible? Perhaps. I'll do my best to provide that as I simply do not want to shut down the site for good, nor do I want to burden my moderators with endless tasks etc. As the site admin and creator I'm simply going to find good moderators, post only the most popular content and provide the best online gaming tools/utilities and gaming areas I can.

So please join us! Join topics on the forums, make this site your own and share your opinions, thoughts and critiques... and we will do our best to make this site the best D&D community online once again Happy

~Sincerely Cole Austin (owner and webmaster)
