I was looking for the PnP version, but the BattleCON site seems to be out of comission. It seems to have been hacked, from the looks of it.

Is there any info on this? Or an alternative place to get the PnP version?

Whoa, what? When did that happen? The site was working fine just a couple days ago! Wow, that sucks.

The best I can tell you, Phelan, is to check out the Vassal module, which is sanctioned by Brad but not hosted on his site. Vassal is a free program you can download that allows you to play board games online. You'll have to download both the Vassal program and the BattleCon module.

Yeah, BattleCON, Level 99's home page, Mystic Empyrean, and the Level 99 Store all were taken down by something unsavory. I've put in a ticket with my hosting solution's customer support, so hopefully this will be fixed in a few days.

With any luck, we will have a recent backup available. If not, well, might be time for a site redesign anyway.

Whoa. Who would do that? Does Brad have some arch-enemies that we don't know about?

So... passwords?

Were the passwords stored securely for the website? Wondering if I should be changing out any other sites that might use the same one.

Our working theory is that they got stomped in a game of BattleCON.

All passwords stored on our site are stored hashed, so you should be fine.

Be sure to get the additional free PnP character Seth Cremmul. He's got a lot of interesting stuff going on that make you think about the game differently.

I saw him in the list when the site came back up, and downloaded him as well, thanks. I will print everything out as soon as I get a new cartridge in the printer.

Full color pages are just $0.50 at Staples and Office Max. It's cheaper to print these professionally than on your home printer (unless you're sitting on something industrial)

For now, I just printed them up in black and white. From what I read in the rules, there isn't any obvious need for color other than recognition of different styles, so I hope it doesn't detract much.
I've played it once like that, and didn't seem to have any problems with it.
I suspect that if I play it more and it keeps being fun, I will buy the full game, so printing it now in color seems more hassle than it's worth.
