This is the website of Revolution, a Science-fiction-esque IRC pen-and-paper RPG hosted in #supersmashrpg.
Contained on these pages are the data of Revolution and its predecessors, as can be seen to the right (underneath "TRAVEL TO ANOTHER ERA").
To join the RPG, talk with members and staff, or just chat about stuff in general, connect your IRC client to irc.sorcery.net.

The bare essentials of the character management system are up. There's still a few bugs, but if you have an account, feel free to make one. If you don't, join the IRC room to get one, or just look at the pretty pages in the meantime.
September 21st, 2008
Looking a bit better now; I've got myself some infrastructure changes. You'll see the new character management pages... shortly.

Sorry for looking like a lazy bum; I actually got the History page working and am on the cusp of adding a complete interactive character sheet feature. I'll eventually have an encyclopedia thing to boot, and over time begin the very painful and difficult process of properly archiving SSQ 1's logs. The truth is sessions are going nicely and if you want to remain up to date, you should probably be in the IRC room. Also the old SSQ page is archived at archive.metalman88.com. Yeah. It'll probably not be touched.'I may well note that the current SSQ is just starting to get to the part where it really takes off, so now's the time to join if you want to not miss the first major event. I have plenty of members now, but I can always use more.

More PHP work; added History page. It's still rather gradual work, but... hey, it's something.
July 19th, 2008
Adding PHP automation and continuing my work on style...
July 16th, 2008
Working on stylistic issues right now. The system will probably gain some more information.

First update... primitive, isn't it? I shall be working on the first pieces of this site... a lot of it isn't made yet, but you have to start from somewhere.
May 1st, 2008
Well, the story has ended. We are now working on a new setup. I'm still inactive as of the moment, but... yeah. Every Saturday or so I'll be working on the new setup in general. Also, our 6th anniversary is coming up.
April 7th, 2008
Still working on a new site, but my purpose is changed;
The story has continued on to an extent that nothing can be new anymore, at least within its tight confines.
To alleviate this I have begun work on an entirely new SSQ. Of course, this means changes.
Which is why this site's been a tad inactive, besides my raging math homework.
We will be a bit inactive for a bit as a new system is made and I design a new site setup, archiving this one in the process. It was fun, but ultimately the lack of planning, structure, or automation makes maintaining the current site more time-eating than I have time for.
Hence, give or take a month or two, I'll have a new one which I can maintain easier, will have more information, and most importantly, will be more interactive with you, the user.
Just gimme a bit and then you can see what I can really do...
February 8th, 2008
Yeah, I was kinda inactive there, but I needed a breather, seeing as I've been doing SSQ nonstop. That and I got two colds one after another. Anywaaaay...
I am building a more powerful SSQ site as I speak. Firstly I am building an automated machine which will allow me to basically write in logs really fast. Thanks to it I'll also probably have to redo what I have, but! Here is how it will go.
Some people may want the original IRC code junk, so the .log files will be available, first and foremost.
Then I'll use an IRC script to parse that, and probably do some more quick edits, and call that one the 'Director's Cut' version, as I personally prefer an HTML version with a certain set of edits...
Finally, for you picky people or people with short attention spans, the Wolfman version, AKA quick little summary, will then also be put up.
Especially since we might not have as much activity as we once had, archiving the old times has once again gained priority. I shall be sure not to fail it.

Exactly a month has passed, but you shall not be empty handed; SSQ101V5 has been updated, and I put in the latest chapter names to the Story. Coming up eventually: Vast char2.php improvements, so many I may call it char3.php instead. Luckily for you, it'll be on the interface end; your data is safe.
October 24th, 2007
May have taken me about a month to update, but what an update it is. Complete SSQ101V5 overhaul, and a char2.php overhaul to boot. Check 'em out!
September 16th, 2007
Still making up for the hiatus, I have created SSQ101 V5, henceforth obsoleting V4 to the archives. We now have a fairly complete database of stuff, but it's still being improved as I speak. Look out for new, amazing updates.
September 12th, 2007
Over a month has passed, but it's well worth it, as in such time, I have coded the new Characters Page. Still buggy and such, but I invite all the current Questers to make their sheets in it. Forthcoming is the ability to add multiple things from the scrollboxes at once, and some increased intelligence with how it displays stats. The old Characters page remains up for posterity, but as of now it is discontinued.
August 14th, 2007
Updating madness has officially begun. Today's subject: The new system. I'll be uploading pages for that and such as the day progresses.
