Hello! Things are crawling along over on my side of the planet. As my new job stabilizes and things get back to normal, I've been having some more time to work on a few new features I hope to launch soon on the site. Things like improvements to the advanced Spell search and work on a new custom one for Monsters! Lastly, a new section for Hellknight Disciplines and the expanded Orders is on the way.

Until then, enjoy the books, I hope to have things caught back up for everyone soon! Also, I fixed my email issue by migrating hosts, so please return to using my normal email as linked on my menu. Thanks!

New Material

[Campaign Setting] Inner Sea Intrigue
[Campaign Setting] Path of the Hellknight
[Player Companion] Legacy of the First World

Hey everyone! Another update is coming soon, potentially a day or two later than 6/1 to get some extra books and functionality up.

The main thing I wanted to make everyone aware of is my email - my current host has been having issues with their email server since 5/1, I haven’t received any email since the start of the month. I’ve lost hope of them fixing it and recovering anything and am looking into a different host to migrate the site to. In any case, I wanted to make everyone aware that until I resolve the email issue, please shoot me messages to archivesofnethys at gmail.com .

I’ll change the Contact Me link to the new email as well. Once I successfully migrate the domain I’ll likely swap back to the old one, so this is just a temporary solution. If you sent me any mail between 5/1-ish and now, please re-send it to my new gmail above.

Well, it certainly has been a while. I'm very sorry to everyone who's been waiting on me to make an update, I know I've been on radio silence for some time now, lots of "attacks of life". If you're interested in more detail, I go more into what's been going on over at my Facebook fan page. If, on the other hand, you just want to know what's been updated, just check out below!

Before I get into the full list, I wanted to call attention to a new page of mine: Contributors! This is a place where I can highlight the people who have helped me with code changes, database entry, and more. I wanted to give a major shoutout to Devin Burke in particular, who's been an enormous help at getting data added for over a dozen books, including both Ultimate Intrigue and Horror Adventures. He's been incredibly patient with my slow updates and in understanding the back-end systems; this update wouldn't be as packed as it is without his contribution. For full details on his (and other's) aid, check out the new page!

Oh, and if you've helped out in the past and aren't listed there, please send me an email! I want to make sure everyone gets credit for helping the Archives out when they do.

It’s been a little while since my last update :) I wish I had more to give you. I had no real idea 6 months ago that the pain I was starting to feel in my left side would have led to me being 6-7 months behind on the site. To those of you who have kept contributing, who keep donating... thank you. Seriously, I cannot thank you guys enough for the continued emails, support, and more.

In the realm of good news, the problem is becoming more manageable. The chairs that I hoped would be my solution for so long didn’t work. Neither did physical therapy. Neither did the continued use of gabapentin, meloxicam, oxycodone... etc. Fortunately, a chiropractor fan started me down the right path, going so far as to offer me free treatment for coming in. The problem is narrowed down to my hip (which is very not aligned right, one side is down farther than the other) and my spine (moderate scoliosis; twists to the right and curves a bit). He did some crazy chiro-magic with my back, and though I’ve always been skeptical of chiropractors (this was my first attempt at any), I think this is the best path.

I’ve gotten lots of feedback from my friends on good chiros in my area and am going to start setting up some treatment plans. I hope this will finally help resolve my issues and save me from months or even years longer of being on pills and doing crazy yoga every night (well, the yoga isn’t really that bad, tbh).

Anyhow! As for the site, my pain is a bit more manageable now and I’ve been making longer attempts at staying comfortable in my seat and working. As you can see, I do have a bit of a backlog.

I’ve always tried to avoid making hard promises on when certain books would be up, especially now when a weekend I *don’t* have a lot booked is a rare and beautiful thing. So consider this timeline below my *hopes* on when I can get which books up:

Week of 8/7/16: Arcane Anthology, Darklands Revisited
Week of 8/14/16: Down the Blighted Path, Blood of Shadows
Week of 8/21/16: Pathfinder #104: Wrath of Thrune, Pathfinder #105: The Inferno Gate, Pathfinder #106: For Queen & Empire
Week of 8/28/16: Inner Sea Faiths, Ire of the Storm, Heaven Unleashed
Week of 9/4/16: Armor Master’s Handbook, We B4 Goblins!
Week of 9/11/16: Magic Tactics Toolbox, Pathfinder #107: Scourge of the Godclaw
Week of 9/18/16: Inner Sea Intrigue, Path of the Hellknight
Week of 9/25/16: Spymaster’s Handbook, Gallows of Madness
Week of 10/2/16: Pathfinder #108: Hell Comes to Westcrown, Legacy of Dragons
Week of 10/9/16: Pathfinder #109: In Search of Sanity, Planes of Power
Week of 10/16/16: Haunted Heroes Handbook, Divine Anthology
Week of 10/23/16+: RPG Product Line, any other missed work, errata, emails

It’s my hope that over the next 2-3 months I can catch up on my current backlog, get back in a good place on the website, and start working on the enormous errata and email backlog next.

Thank you again to everyone who’s continued to use the site, contribute, or email me these last many months. Please, even if you don’t see a response from me, continue to send me emails. I flag and organize everything sent to me so that when the time is right, I can start responding and making fixes.

Best wishes,
Blake "Nethys" Davis
