Hi everyone! We've had a lot of feedback with the new updates and understand the new search engine, while improved in many places, is lacking in a few features the old engine used to have. Milan has been hard at work with the updates of our new search and has added in a couple of those requested features to help - users will now be able to sort one result per line again, and we've added a few more detailed categories to show exactly where a result comes from.

We are still making improvements, however, and the new engine doesn't handle multi-word terms yet as well as the old. To ensure that no one is disappointed, we've added back access to the old search engine here. You can also find a link to it at the top of the new search page. Though the new search will still remain the default, we hope access to the old one will allow you to do anything that you can't yet on the new.

All of your feedback in testing the new engine has been valuable, so we encourage you to continue testing it and letting us know your results in our Discord feedback channels. This will help us get things up to speed sooner rather than later.

Thank you for your support, and happy holidays!

Happy holidays everyone! We come to you late this December month with a few new sections to the site and other improvements. The full list of changes is below, along with a number of unlisted bug fixes and minor changes that the Archives team has been hard at work in correcting, so huge thanks to them for their efforts! We're still making improvements as time allows, so more updates will be coming in the future!

We hope you enjoy the new update and have a happy new year!

Site Updates

  • The search engine has been updated using design and code from the 2E site. Results will now sort by order of relevance, exact matches will be called out up top, and we've made some overall improvements to the speed of the engine. Please be aware there is one known bug we're still working on correcting (due to changes in the architecture between our 1e and 2e databases). As a result, you will sometimes see the same result duplicated in a given search category (Races is a common one). We'll have this fixed soon, but if you spot other bugs please let us know (with as much detail as possible) on our Discord aon-feedback channels!
  • New GM Screen section added to the Rules, containing a number of useful rules all in one place (thanks to Devin for all the data entry and setup assistance!). If you have suggestions for other sections that would be handy, please let us know!
  • All page headers adjusted to show specific details first, general last.
  • Metatags added to every page to improve search engine recognition and show more details when a page is linked on certain services (such as Discord).

Hi everyone! While there are no longer new books for the 1st Edition, we're still spending time fixing bugs and improving areas of the site in between updates of SF and 2E. With this update comes a lot of miscellaneous bug fixes not explicitly called out here, along with some page redesigns and new additions. Thanks to the Archives team for their hard work in maintaining this edition!

We're also still making changes to the search engine, along with some other areas that need improvement, and more updates will be coming in the future. Additionally, perhaps... some art? :)

Until then, the big changes this time around are below. Enjoy!

Hello everyone!

You’ve asked for it for a long time, and I’m happy to announce that the mobile view and minimized sidebar (thanks in large part to Acolyte Alex!) have made their way over to the 1st Edition site! The search engine is still on the old framework, but we hope to update that to 2nd Edition soon as well. In the meanwhile, we’ve at least added the search box into the main menu like 2E so you can access it quicker.

With this update also comes a large number of bug fixes to the data. Enjoy!
