Forum Update

I need to upgrade the forum, and it looks like it'll be a bit more involved than usual. If there's a bad time for it to be down, please speak up. (Likely times are 9PM EDT or random time on weekend.)

Server Upgrade

I upgraded a bunch of things on the server (and then downgraded some after stuff broke). Since you're reading this, it seems the forum is working properly but if you notice anything broken, let me know.

Building a Shared Mythos

Josh pointed me at a blog post An Ultimate Supers RPG that described the following sequence to build a shared basis for a superhero setting. The inspiration was the Ultimate Marvel universe, which took the long history of Marvel and used it as inspiration to create a unified setting to tell new stor...

Spam Wave

Re: Board Logo

It's been 5 years and nobody's suggested anything, so I'm just going to remove this as an announcment. If you have ideas though, I'm still open to them.

Your Forums Have Been Assimilated

We have added their user and topic distinctiveness to our own. Your posts will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile. Strange Tides was previously a separate phpBB system owned and operated by Wyvern. The maintenance headache of keeping two forums up to date, while minor, still bugged me. So no...

Maintance Downtime: Complete

My hosting provider needs to perform some upgrades to the server that hosts Silver. There will be an up to two hour downtime at 2015-03-04 3:00:00 AM UTC. That's 10 PM Tuesday night EST and 7PM PST. I see no reason silver shouldn't come back up cleanly after the downtime, but if it's still unavailab...

Due to a small wave of spambots, I deleted a variety of new accounts. If you were a real person, I apologize. Just sign up again and post something here so you're not caught again if another wave comes through.

Re: Server Upheaval

Welcome to the new forums! If you're still seeing the old server at, then you should be automatically redirected here to the new forums. You may notice a few differences to the forums, as I've updated to the latest phpBB.
