Various files and links relevant to the RQ PBeM taking place via a Yahoo Group or two. A random assortment of odd characters (many of them left-overs from other campaigns) are trying to make a go of Dracostead, in Dorastor, despite interruptions from Chaos, the neighbours, and religious arguments. Most of those who originally got granted this stead are now dead, and various others have come along and moved in, as guests or as full members, depending on how much we like them.


There's a lot of stuff in the YG Files area: but sadly Yahoo have started using strange virtual URLS, so I can't give direct links, and links between files within the area don't work. Hence this page, where I can do HTML with links in. I'm told the Group is now closed - membership has to be approved by the owner (Adrian).

I'll try to get our past adventures up here as and when I can, but I'm working through the 4000-odd messages in reverse order, or as I need a reminder of what we've been doing.
