Archives -- Original CHC

These are text files collecting most of the public threads from the original CHC game, when it ran on CompuServe's Role Playing Games Forum.

Many thanks to Zebekia, who provided most of these archives after I lost mine!

I have tried to put them in order, but the organization is not perfect (and some files have multiple threads mixed together).

The summaries are very brief, based on my memory from glancing at the files (it has been a long time and I couldn't possibly reread all of them -- at one time I printed out all my threads, and they filled three large three-ring binders!). The summaries in the Lurker's Log are more complete and descriptive.

Threads By Date

These are simply collections of public CHC posts archived by date. They are unsorted and unformatted, unlike the files above, so different threads are mixed together, and OOC posts are not filtered out. Most of what is in the files below is also contained in a more organized format in the files above.
