Kingbeast’s Lair Is Up On A New Web Host!

September 24, 2011 By: John Taber Category: Site Updates

InMotion Hosting LogoI think I may now have everything squared away on my new web host. During the process of moving everything to InMotion Hosting I needed help. Technical support was fast, friendly, and knowledgeable. Finally I have a web host that has better tech support. Excellent. 🙂 (If you are looking for a new host please consider using the link above. That way I can get a kick back…I am an official InMotion Affiliate. 😉 )

Now that Kingbeast’s Lair is back expect some spiffy new content. I think the next entry will be the review of what could possibly be the best graphic novel that I have ever read! How is that for a teaser!?! 😀


Kingbeast’s Lair Is Moving To A New Web Host

September 13, 2011 By: John Taber Category: Site Updates

Some of you know that I have been having terrible issues with my current web hosting company. I finally decided to bite the bullet and do something about it. I am switching web hosting companies. As part of the process I will be moving over my entire web site and email. During this process the blog, site, and email related to might be sporadic…especially since I have never tried moving my site when it was this complicated. 🙁 Please bear with the mess during the move. 🙂

Checkered Demon Files Discovered!

Checkered Demon Logo SmallWhile cleaning up some binders and such at home I unearthed some CD-ROMs that contain backups of the Checkered Demon BBS! By doing some poking around I was also able to construct a file list and recover many of the files that were posted as downloads in the RPG section. If you go to the Other downloads page on my site you can find this very list. 🙂

If you would like to have copies of some of these files available for download on Kingbeast’s Lair please shoot me an email and I will see what I can do. Note that SOME of these files appear to be corrupted. 🙁 I can only offer to do my best to recover them.

There are some other benefits of this discovery. I will soon be posting EVERY issue of a newsletter that I published long ago called Mad Merc’s Gaming Gazette. These newsletter contain lots of RPG goodness and are a glimpse back into the early days of Hero. Watch for these to start appearing on this blog soon. 😀
