Once upon a time FFG had a site (or subsite) dedicated to Diskwars, called diskwars.com. There are ads for it in the rules to the games. There was a lot of content on the game posted there.

So does anybody know what happened to that content when FFG pulled the plug?

If it's in FFG limbo or somewhere else, could it be transposed or transcribed to BGG? What would that take?

Hey Don, this is Marcus. We did numerous trades at hat website. I think once it was dead, someone else took over and used a different website with different goals with the same name. Nothing to do with the game.

I think the content is lost and I don't have much beyond good memories from it. I did print numerous scenarios but that's about all I have left from it.

Still play Diskwars from time to time and it's reimplementation Warhammer: Diskwars which reimagines the system in a wonderful way.

Not sure if it will help, but out of curiosity I checked web.archive.org.

They have some pages from 2000 that might have some of the content, e.g. :

http://web.archive.org/web/20000301094900/http://www.diskwars.com/dwfaq.html

Good luck, could be clicking a lot and navigating the wayback machine which is not always easy or fast.

Hello Marcus,

Hope you've been well.

I'm still playing, but very little Diskwars at this point.

edit> Still have all my DW stuff, including L5R DW.
