I just got back into the game because my 6-year-old son saw some images of Heroscape stuff while I was cleaning up my BGG collection and wanted to try it out. After his first game, he asked to start making custom stuff, so I had jumped back into the forums at Heroscapers.com to read other people's customs and post my own. And now the site has been mysteriously down for most of a day and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it coming back up.

Any info?

Reports on Reddit and Facebook say that it's being worked on. Doesn't sound like it's anything dire.

I did some poking about and noticed that the Name Servers for the domain 'heroscapers.com' ARE heroscapers.com name servers. This is a case of 'all your eggs in one basket', I fear. If no one can get an IP address for the nameservers (because the nameservers themselves are down), they can never get the site back up.

They need to change the DNS Servers listed for the domain to include at least one NS that ISN'T a member of the domain itself. I hope Truth (or whomever is running the domain these days) reads this or realizes this.

Well I hope they get it back up and running. It's been down before, but never this long that I recall.

I miss keeping in touch with some good people over there.

While DNS servers may very well be the issue, it's not because they point to the domain itself. They would just be using glue records.

I do hope it comes back online soon though. I also don't recall seeing such a long outage before...

The site has gone down before. But usually only a day or two at worst. This seems a bit longer.

I wonder if the Heroscapers sysadmins have checked the server to ensure that it is plugged in and switched on at the wall socket?

Does anybody know who IS running the domain/website these days? Is it still Truth? (Refresh my memory.... who was Truth in real life? -- Colby Dauch?)

Yeah, Truth is Colby Dauch.

Edit: I just took a shot in the dark and emailed Plaid Hat Games to see if anyone there could find out from Colby what the status is. Don't know if they will reply, but it's a shot.

Sadly no. Kind of disappointed that they haven't responded. But then again, who knows if Colby is even around or available at the moment, or he just may not want to comment about it until he has an answer.

That said, if I don't hear anything in a week, not only will I think the worst about Heroscapers, but also lost respect for Colby for not letting people know what's going on. There are a lot of people that have a lot of time and effort invested in projects there, which made people actually keep going back there. There are also people currently working on projects and should know if they should stop wasting their time if there isn't going to be a site anymore.

I'm really really nervous about the length of time that Heroscapers has been down. The community cannot survive without such a dedicated forum. If worst comes to worst, as a community we must regroup and rebuild, perhaps a new platform.

Heroscape for life.

If it is a server outage as someone claimed then the delay could be waiting for a replacement part/s. Assuming it is not worse than that.
