is launched! I got inspired by my recent acquisition of the
doomtrooper.net domain so I took the old site and reworked a
new graphical treatment. I hope you like it! I've got quite
a few plans in store for this site, and hopefully I can find
some time to get them all accomplished. First, a few details:
doomtrooper.net domain is not actually the real "home"
for this site. It actually sits at www.thewinternet.com/doomtrooper.
The domain is currently acting as a pointer to the "real"
site, and the site is held within a one-frame frameset (which
is why the domain in your address bar does not change). You
can bookmark either domain, they will both work. I plan on
moving doomtrooper.net to it's own host in the near future
(as soon as I scrape up some cash). :-)
updated the forum to a new
and improved program. This one has tons of great features!
Please register and join in on the conversation!
will be adding a few new databases to the site. First I will
implement a database to help find players in your area. Then,
I'll work on one that will let you post your own card ideas.
also plan on re-editing the 2nd
Edition rules. I want to add some new images and clean
up the copy a bit. I also added the Cardinal's Gift to the
rules (they were previously only a tournament
rule). We are looking at a new batch of players because...
amazing gEngine that they are working on over at CCG
Workshop is in beta testing. This incredible program will
let you play any CCG you can image online, provided you have
scans of all the cards and a complete database of all the
text, plus a lot of work to make sure the game will work in
the engine! Well, thanks to the incredible support of the
Doomtrooper community, I'm very happy to report that Doomtrooper
is the first game that will be made available for the gEngine!
From some brief playing with the latest beta, this thing is
going to ROCK!
a bit of an "attitude adjustment" when it comes
to my "stewardship" of Doomtrooper. I do not own
the rights to Doomtrooper, they are in the care of Target
Games, which has since reworked themselves into Paradox Entertainment
(or something like that). Doomtrooper is out of print, and
currently no one is interested in dumping some money into
the property and create "official" products. In
the past, as the designer, I had a say it what was considered
"official," but the final decisions rested with
the gang at Target. But they aren't interested in Doomtrooper
I'm just going to take the reigns and make it my own.
someonebody tells me to stop, you can consider this site the
official repository of all things Doomtrooper. What
does this mean? It means the 2nd Edition rules are now official.
It means that if there are some great homemade cards out there
that I think should be made "official" then so let
it be done. I know, it's a power trip, but somebody has to
do it! :-)
yeah, the same goes for the Dark Eden and Kult CCGs as well
(but not Crow or James Bond, for obvious reasons).
long and short of it is that there really won't be that much
of a difference right now. But with the advent of the gEngine,
Doomtroper once again has the opportunity to grow and evolve.
Who knows, there may just be a 3rd edition in the future.
always, I welcome your feedback.
