I've posted this in another forum, but being a long time member of the Holonet, you guys need also to check this out!

Well, hi guys, this is Mario A. Escamilla, AKA Korpil from ye olden days... I'm now as old as Lor San Tekka and fortunately not as dead (yet).

I've been away from RPG for several years, the SWRPG index that I used to compile, died when I moved my website off whatever that Microsoft was using ages ago, and also I let my domain korpil.net expire and now it belongs to scammers... bummer.

Well, do not despair... if Luke Skywalker could be found, there's also hope for the Index. I have found the original database and it's in good shape, I'm checking out options to make it available for online search as I always intended to be...

In the meantime, I was able to recover the files from my backups, the files are in my personal Dropbox until a new homepage is found, folders for D6 and d20 are in there.

I plan to start indexing also FFG material, since I've now picked a couple of books and I intend to keep buying more.

I also am interested in buying old D6 books that I don't have, if anyone has anything for sale.

And finally, I was invited to write an essay for a group of books published by Sequart, regarding the importance of the RPG, specially WEG's D6 to the overall Star Wars universe. The book will be published later in the year but you can see more info here. Drew Campbell is also writing something about the RPG.

Sorry for the long post, have a great day!

Yay! Korpil is back. But to me it's like he never left. ;-)

I didn't know you left either.. BUt welcome back and glad to hear you have found an older copy of your index.
