I posted this on the IRC channel, I thought I'd share it here.

Last FASA run is TOMORROW

If you or anybody you know is in the Chicago area tomorrow morning, it is the last chance to get FASA SR , ST, ED development archives by the box from me for free.

I have only given away about 15 boxes of materials so far out of about 235 (boxes contain notes for ALL FASA products, not just SR)

Editorial copies, hand notes, mock ups, manuscripts, game concept submissions, playtest notes...everything but the original art.

Only caveats: You must take the materials by the box (document boxes), and I must inspect and clear the materials within the box to ensure no financial or legal documents are enclosed.

Again, its all FREE, you just have to come get it at 1100 W Cermak at or around 10AM CST. (Contact me via email to get my cell phone to finalize logistics as I am driving in from Michigan)

I have been keeping this stuff from being trashed for over a year now, and it's time to do something with it. I want to see it in the hands of fans, not at a recycler.

If I dont give this stuff away, or make other arrangements, it will be destroyed within 30 days.

Wow, it'd be great if this stuff could be collected and anything revelant compiled online.

Unfortunately, I'm nowhere near Chicago.

M***er F***er! I hope one of our leading experts get's their hands on the SR and ED stuff. I had a thread asking the question if any of this stuff existed. Damn. Wish I could get there. Any idea how much it would cost to ship this stuff?

Hey AH, how much would it cost me to buy you a last-minute plane ticket there?

This seems rather fishy to me. Who is PropWash?

SOunds real weird to me. If I /did/ live anywhere nearby, I'd go just to check it out (thanks for the vote of confidence Kagetenshi, but you'd be better served to spend the same on SR books you don't have.)

If no one takes you up on this, and i hope that you post about it either way, I'd be willing to pay for shipping of it to me.

Not to worry, all. At last check, I've organized a sqaud of four gamers from my old Chicago group with a pair of cars to rescue as much SR and ED material as possible. Shiny things will be kept by the rescuers themselves, but interesting/useful/exciting docos will be distributed/posted/shared.

It's good having a gaming group in every town. : -)

I'd be really curious to see the sheet of paper on which somebody wrote "create a med-fan game set in the past of SR" :spin:

But, um, who is this guy that's giving this stuff away? I mean, this isn't just some random guy who wrote a lot of crap for his game or something, is it? Propwash... who are you?

He/She/It may not be able to respond, insofar as the Propwash entity seems to have driven down to Chicago from Michigan.

PropWash is for real. I have to admit that I was kind of hoping nobody would respond to his post, though (since I get whatever doesn't get taken away in Chicago today). Oh well, I've still got some choice stuff:

http://img32.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img32&image...unknotes6gg.jpg

I'm thinking about starting a site to compile inventories of what is in these boxes. I don't think much of it can be legally reproduced, but inventories should be fine. If any of RangerJoe's friends would be interested in getting involved, let me know.

Anyone who gets stuff related to Urban Brawl PLEASE Make Scans for me. If I lived ANYWHERE NEAR Chicago I'd go look myself. Imagine who awesome a scanned archive of this info would be?

We should find out exactly what can be done with this stuff. If nothing else, might be possible to put together a helluva netbook project based solely off randomly discarded ideas. :P

Very interesting stuff.

Oh yes, at least some of us who got these products were given specific orders to mock the rest of you on dumpshock. It's also a great learning experience seeing the exact location of the Cermak blast. Even better when you get to leave with boxes of FASA manuscripts and all the "Art of Shadowrun" books you can carry (those were sort of forced on anyone who stopped by).

If I'd known the maquis were there, I'd have taken a bigger vehicle.

Funny thing about the second image is how the first thing that came to mind was the groups who really did do via Napster what the 'squach did on the Matrix.

Thank you those of you who took the risk to come out and save some history.

Those of you who are suspicious and want to imply that I was up to no good, I'm sorry you feel that way. I in fact went out of my way to make sure that the epicenter of the SR fans were aware and had an opportunity to participate. Some benefitted greatly from it. (I hope anyway)

Due to weight limitations, I had to dump about 12 boxes of SR source materials just after leaving Cermak. I have a few other boxes now here in Kalamazoo, MI.

If nobody comes to get them, I'm sure phorce phed will take them as he did about another 15 boxes earlier in the week. I also gave him the entire paste up and stats collection (about 5,000 art pieces). If not him, I'll be recycling them as planned.

I also have a bunch of Star Trek and Earthdawn stuff available.

Thanks again for the time.

SOrry, Prop, but most miracles have a few skeptics! If not for the fact I'm in Florida and broke, trust me I'd be there.
