    When it comes to everything officially published Exodite has us covered but for everything else it's a bit of a wild west. As time goes on it's increasingly hard to find - lots of the stuff was on GeoCities, for example.

    Being the resident crazy person I've decided to try to hunt down whatever I can and try to make it available again. The problem here is I'm trying to do it legally. That means no copying their work without permission. Wherever possible I'm trying to arrange to license things under Creative Commons (this sort of thing). That would mean they could both be freely distributed and also that anyone could build on them. (That probably sounds a bit scary but it's actually pretty straight forward)

    Once we're sure about the legal stuff the rules will be given a lick of paint and laid out in the modern tUGS template (as seen in Depiff's Sumfink In Da Sand rules). Oh and released on tUGS and wherever else is interested.

    At the moment things are split into four categories: relicensed rules, rules we're still trying to reach the author/s of, orphan works, and lost works. The goal is to get everything into the first category!

    Trying to contact author
    Orphan works

    Lost works
    • Cheesie's Games Workshop: "Dis is a gret zite fur gubbinz, noo troopz, and a right gud campain called Invashun. Itz prety gud, yuz nuw."
      (linked to here)
    So what can I do to help?
    Firstly, do you know any of the people we're trying to reach? Are you one of them? I can be reached by email or you can post here.

    Secondly - what have I missed? I'd already got a folder of this stuff when I started writing this topic and found out about Cheesie's now inactive site before I even finished compiling the list. There's bound to be other stuff out there!

    Thirdly - Do you know of any Gorkamorka stuff that isn't in English? Adding that to the collection would be rather fun!

    Fourthly (is that a thing?) - Yes, this topic is fairly old, but I've loved Gorkamorka since I was eleven years old back in the late 1990s and I'm not planning to stop any time soon. Go ahead and contact me about this stuff!

    Great work! I'm looking forward to seeing all of this in Vault!

    Sadly, I cannot be of any help to this project, seeing as I got all my Gorkamorka fixes (read pdf's) from your awesome site! I've done some searches for stuff, but I don't think I've actually come across anything that's not on your list.

    Again - great work!

    How about this stuff by Doghouse (one of the first to ever build true scale Space Marines), sort of a 'sequel' to the GorkaMorka/Digganob setting. Besides background it also includes rules for Dredds and Weirdboys.

    That'd be the one Matt wrote for tUGS. It hasn't been redone in the new template (it's still using the old one), true, but it's readily available on tUGS (check the download section for others) and it's already licensed under Creative Commons (y) (although it's an older license).

    Generally the sort of thing this project is aimed at is stuff found on sites like this:

    Lots of the stuff is still available in some obscure archive but I'm trying to contact the authors so they can be re-released.

  6. So that's a couple more new scenarios I had not found before. Thanks, Ben.
