One Year Anniversary Blowout Update! - That's right, it's been exactly one year since the website launched, and to celebrate, I'm adding a boatload of content! The massive amounts of Newsletters I have updated are mind-boggling, and I still have more left! Here's what's new:

Sharks Newsletters - Volumes 63, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, and 72.
EarthBound Gang Newsletters - Volumes 94, 95, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, and 103.
New Info on the EB Club: Exit Mice in the Clubs section
A Bio on PigmaDanga, leader of the Exit Mice in the "People" section

You can check out the new newsletters in the Archive. Keep in mind that some content was lost in the transfer to the website. Some logos may not be readable, some text not readable, and a bunch of mumbo-jumbo here and there. I apologize for these errors, and I will be trying to correct as many as I can in the coming weeks. You can still enjoy the newsletters though, so head on over!

The new info on the club is found here and the bio is here.

At this milestone in the site's history (No pun intended), I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to visit the site. We may not have the most content, but I'm constantly working on adding more. Digging up some old Club material like newsletters and getting in touch with old club buddies isn't as easy as one might think. Thanks for checking us out on the one year anniversary, and keep coming back, we'll always be here adding more stuff...


Update for Wednesday, December 19 - Whew! It's been even longer and still no substantial update? Today's big news in NEW info in the CLUBS section. I added info for Georg15216's awesome EB club, the Onettians. So go check that out.

As of right now I am promising you regular updates, yes, regular as in almost every week. These updates will continue all the way up until The History's one year birthday on January 20th, 2002. On that day you can expect something very special at the site, so keep checking back for updates. The first update will be this weekend, so be sure to come back and check it out.


Update for Monday, August 13 - It's been a while, yes, but I have some juicy updates for you. First off, I uploaded all three parts of the final Mr. Saturn Nation Newsletter, and what I consider to be a newsletter masterpiece. So go check that out in the Archives, or follow the link below. Also, I added an article I've written about the death of the EB clubs, so check that out also. School starting and I'll be at home a lot more, so maybe we'll see some more updates...

Death of the EB Clubs by RedArwing

- Red

Update for Monday, May 14th 2001 - Ahh.... the grips of Summer are upon us, and with that I give you the ideal time to play through EarthBound once more. Yes, Summer is, in my opinion the best time to play EB, so dust off the old SNES and prepare for a little retro gaming. This might be my last major update until July, as I will be going out of town for the entire month of June. I'll be back in July to relax and play a little EB, waiting for Final Fantasy Chronicles to come out... and maybe updating the site. This week I have a little surprise for you, to replace the embarassingly lackluster People section, we have a brand new one! Thanks to CrazedMogX, so head on over and have a look.

From Saturday, April 14th - Hmm... There's not a lot I can tell you except we've passed the 1000 hits mark, a real landmark for us. I really don't know what to do in terms of updates, I'm trying to think of something to throw on the site, but it's hard since we completed most of it before launch. I guess I'll just keep updating like this to make sure you know the site's not dead. I'm trying to find RPG Maker for the PSX, but I'm not having a lot of luck, maybe I'll order it online... Also, I heard Valkyrie Profile was good, and Persona 2 too... Well, until next time.

From March 31st - New layout, once again. I like this one better. Hope you do too. Exciting news! As of this writing we are 25 hits away from the 1000 mark. That's great, isn't it?

From Tuesday: I know the weekend has come and gone, and I have a tiny fraction of the People section done, so you can expect it THIS weekend. I promise. I was pretty busy this past weekend, so that's probably why I haen't gotten around to it. Or maybe I'm spending too much time at the message boards at FFOnline.

From Wednesday 21
Wow, we've been named the site of the week! That's really something. Also, I received an award from IceFusion, which, as I discussed with Cueball, gives me an excuse to make an "Our Awards" part of the site, Heheh... Here it is:

But on to more important things. Since the award, we've been getting more visitors which I would gladly bet are finding their way here by way of's SOTM button on their sidebar. For those of you who are returning to the site or are just visiting for the first time, please have a look around, see what's new. I wil be adding the People list and some more Newsletters this weekend, so keep checking back for those. Thanks for visiting.


Tuesday, March 13 - Hey kiddies, not much to update with, I'm still working on a lot of material. The People List should be up soon. Cue sent me his draft, and I'm gonna add as much as I can to it. If anyone thinks they can help, please e-mail me with some info and/or questions about the project. You can attribute my recent lack of updates to my newest web project, Welcome to Midgar my Final Fantasy VII site I've been working on. It's not finished and I'm still tweaking the overall layout, but I'll post a link soon. I was also thinking about redoing the design of this site, but that would be a pain in the NECK!

I'll be sure to update you when I get the People list online, and any help would be appreciated. Thanks, keep reading.

Not really anything to add to the site today, just a few news tidbits. For those of you who got here via, you probably alredy know that the NP Seige II winners were announced. You can see my entry here. No, I did not win, and no, I am not bitter about it. Seriously though, these winning entries are really something. You should check em' out.

Also, as an unexpected coincidence, The History also underwent a layout change, mush like Not really considering I only updated the main page, and it took me about 20 minutes. But I hope you like the new background, I decided to keep the old title.

Thanks for visiting, and keep submitting.

Update for Saturday, February 17th, 2001
Ahh... finally recovered from my trip. This week: I posted The 3rd Moonside Newsletter in the Archive. What else? Nothing really. I couldn't come up with anything. That's about it because I couldn't think of anything else to put up. I even found a picture that I thought expressed my lack of ideas quite nicely. In fact, I was SO bored, I made a new banner for the site. You like it? New background too, if you can see it. Ehh... whatever. Here's weapon from FFVII to tell you "Send in some sh*t!"

Doesn't make sense? Exactly. The new design at is up, pretty nice. If anybody has any ideas or comments on The History, please don't hesitate to let me know. I think I'll get back to my game of Mortal Kombat II now...
