    (3/3) ... that Aurora-1 album.

    In the current incarnation, Aurora's interaction is carried out in a discussion board, and a wiki holds most of the nation info, instead of individual websites. That wiki is down for maintenance just now... I run it,and I'm having trouble with our host's latest upgrade. I should be working on that instead of Cartographers Guild surfing :-).

    Myth, legend, and history are underdeveloped, both on the old Aurora-1 and on today's Aurora. But there's fun tidbits here and there. I hope you enjoy what you can dig up!

    (2 of 3) ...of the national websites are still live - click and see on the country names! http://worldspinner.net/worldofaurora/oldvisit.shtml The info links won't do any good, nor the owner links. The menu on the left takes you back to the current incarnation of Aurora - different map, mostly different nations. Even the sites that are now offline may be visible via the internet archive's "wayback machine". You go to http://www.archive.org, and enter the desired old address - it (may) offer you a list of all the old versions that were collected over the years. Example - the guy who ran Daxos took down his site. Via the wayback machine though I see http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://...axos/index.htm a bunch of 2004/2005 versions. Some might have interesting info <shrug> . In the Aurora-1 sites still up you'll see some maps I did for other players - I'll gradually post the better ones on the Guild in that

    Eliathen --
    I'm glad you like what we developed. What happened to Aurora-1 is that a bunch of the players either grew disinterested, or their real life intervened to cut back their participation. It takes a certain minimum amount of activity, before the world is fun as a game -- it's all about nation creation then interaction. So we chose to start over fresh. The shiny new blankness has attracted some new players - there's room for plenty more.

    In the period of these maps, we conducted our interaction on yahoo groups - you can probably still see archived messages at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/worldofaurora/ . I think after we left the Yahoo group, we interacted on a discussion board that's now lost :-b... And the main website at that time had a "visit" page with links to individual websites for the nations. I've kept that page online, and many of ....
