Heya Folks!

After it's popularity in 2007, in 2008 Orcs in the Webbe one again became an Advent Calendar.

The main difference this year was that as well as bringing it's readers some classic articles it also brought with it a whole host of new original content written exclusively for inclusion on the calendar, including: two Frontear scenarios and eight Flintloque scenarios.

It also saw Steve Blease, one of Flintloque's co-creators return to the world of Valon for the first time in over twelve years.

Keep The Flag Flying !

Webmaster's Note:
The current version of Orcs in the Webbe was launched in December 2013 with quite a few articles having slipped through the cracks.
