Seems like the Gauntlet’s gone. I managed to snap one last version yesterday—I’ll post it here so the search engine crawler bots can do their thing.
If you have a link to the old address of the Gauntlet, you can just replace the domain name forums.gauntlet-rpg.com with gauntlet-archive.github.io. Unfortunately Jason Cordova didn’t set up the redirect as I had recommended.
Is there any particular discussion here that you felt like was worth saving? If so, post a link in this thread.
Note: please no eulogies or speculation as to why it closed.
For the record, I was never truly a fan of The Gauntlet. If you’re wondering how, just compare the guidelines to this forum to the Gauntlet’s, and it will explain itself. I never felt it was my place, culturally.
However, I’ve had some fruitful conversations there, and I met @Paul_T, so I’m grateful in a way. And it would be a waste for things to be lost to the internet memory hole.
Some people enjoyed my analysis of d10 dice pools for PbtA play:
I will eventually post my compendium of dicing techniques for PbtA-style resolution in any case; it would be good for it to have a home on the internet (in English, that is; it exists already in Italian!).
