Introducing The Rancor Pit LIBRARY of Fan-Made Supplements!

I taught myself how to add pages to the website, and spent many, many hours this week building this Library page. I apologize that it is nothing fancy. At this point, it's bare bones but functional. You can use your web browser to read the documents directly for quick reference, or save them.

This feature is very important to me because the fan-made supplements were available at the same websites where the digital bootlegs of officially published documents also are. So to stay compliant with the bootleg policy, we couldn't always even tell people where to get a fan-made supplement. Now we have a safe place here for fan-made supplements that we can use and share freely.

I compared my list to a couple of those sites that mix the books and there are only a few fan-made works there that I didn't bother with here. And I put up a few Star Wars D6 supplements here I didn't see at those sites. I also put up some of the Purgatory Open D6 documents too because they are OGL, they have some D6 features I've found inspirational for my Star Wars game system, and way back I had painstakingly created two of the PDFs with my old scanner and computer.

So as far as fan-made Star Wars D6 supplements, are there any glaring omissions I should add?

Very cool. Is this going to be added to the control menu bar?

Amazing. Everything you just said was wrong.

That would be ideal, but I'm not sure at this point because the forum runs by the php software and I created the Library page separately through my web host's file manager. For now, the Library will be linked in multiple stickied posts in the forum, and the Library page includes links back to the Forum. As an option, you can always save a separate bookmark for the Library.

I'm glad to see the years of work here accumulated directly on the site. Thanks for adding that feature, Whill!

Yeah, there are some nice goodies in here. Whill, how does one go about lobbying to add a fanbook to this list? I still have my fanbook for the Legends Legacy of the Force novels and I'd love to see it added here.

Maybe a suggestion, Whill could you also place a link in your signature?

This is a great resource, Thanks for doing this, instead of scrolling through 42 pages of the Fan Made source book thread with a lot dead links we can have them in one place.

I don't know how I missed that one. It's now been added. Thanks!

Woot! Finally, people can see the end result of months of my hard work!

(Well, mine, Thor Thorson and Matt Norton's hard work. *cough*)

That's not a bad suggestion, but unfortunately my signature is nearly maxed out on characters. It isn't just the characters that appear and the spaces, but it's also the BBCoding. My signature is currently at 243 characters out of 255, so there isn't enough room for another URL and what's in my signature is more important. But the Rancor Pit Library page is linked in the top two posts linked in my signature, so the Library is only one extra click away from any of my posts. I suggest bookmarking the Library in your favorites, and you can put it in your signature if you want.
