[Ye Olde Inn] Agin's Resurrection

I've been thinking of devoting a portion of my Webspace to Hero Quest. Now that Agin's Inn is gone, the massive collection of resources have nearly gone with it (save for a two year old archive). Perhaps I could resurrect a spot in honour of the Olde Inn, and bring together another central resource site for Hero Quest. I have more than enough space (roughly 270 GB) at the moment, and I'm sure even all that precious loot won't take up much of it. Of course I'll also have links to all the major Hero Quest sites and forums as well.

Any thoughts?

EDIT: Here's a little sample of what I've been working on.

Agin's Resurrection

You may recognise the parchment background, but the buttons are all-new!

I think that this is a great venture to take on. I'm excited to see it!!! So when will that be? Need any help? Not sure what I can do, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Let me know.

At the moment all I can say is... sometime this year. Hopefully soon.

I was hoping to have something done over the holidays, but I ended up working more than usual, and my spare time was taken by get-togethers and other holiday events.

Right now, what I need most is motivation. Every time I sit down and warm up the scanner, I'm already bored and end up shutting it off. Every time I sit down and start coding the pages, I can't decide how I want them to work. Do I want all the cards and tiles in one place, or do I want everything separated by expansion? Should I have both?

I would like to create a central resource centre so to speak. A place where anyone can go to get a scan of that missing card or tile. But how deep do I go? Should I host a copy of everything I can get my hands on? I take it copies of the North American editions are a must, as well as English copies of the European editions. I guess I could also become the Grand Central Station and link to all the other sites in other languages.

Here's what I have already that I can scan myself (of course, if the work is already done, why do it again?):

North American:
System
Kellar's Keep
Return of the Witch Lord
Barbarian Quest Pack
Elf Quest Pack

European:
System - Advanced Edition with Dark Company (English & French, plus English Quest Book with The Maze)
Kellar's Keep
Return of the Witch Lord
Against the Ogre Horde (German)
Against the Ogre Horde (English - No Box)
Wizards of Morcar (German)
Wizards of Morcar (English - No Box)
Adventure Design Kit (English - No box)

Cover Art Work for (these are copies of the art used, not scans of the box covers):
System
Kellar's Keep
Return of the Witch Lord
Against the Ogre Horde
Wizards of Morcar

Definitely Need:
Cover Art Work for Barbarian Quest Pack
Cover Art Work for Elf Quest Pack

If you have any ideas/criticisms, I will surely take as much help as I can get (same goes for scans you or anyone you know may already have in their possession). I'm still trying to pinpoint a good design layout. Wondering if I should use a horizontal list of links across the top, or go with the buttons I already started using. Perhaps I'll make a few basic layouts and throw them at you for advice. I'm sure if we put our heads together we can come out with a fantastic site.

Hopefully I can get some more work done soon (kinda busy at the moment, my baby sister is getting married this week, and work is piling up again). Right now, I'm in much need of sleep, so I shall go and get some. Unless my brain keeps twisting on the subject and keeps me awake... again!

The bulk of the style and layout is complete. All that needs to be done is scan and add the resources. Check it out!

Like I've said elsewhere, awesome job drathe! I greatly appreciate the efforts you are putting into keeping Agin's alive. It was the first site I found in my return to HQ some 4 or 5 years ago. Sad to see it disappear.

I'm hoping to have the Main System page completed this weekend. At least the North American Scans. If all goes as planned, the European Scans will be finished as well. I'm looking in to obtaining a French copy of the system at the moment too.

I also came across the old order form for sending away for the expansions. It would be fun to fill out a copy and send it in for some Elf and Barbarian Packs, just to see if Hasbro/Milton Bradley has a warehouse full of unshipped copies.

Although there are no links to it from the actual page [Links have since been added], and I've only got this one page partially completed, here's a sneak peak at one of the Ron Shirtz tile pages:

Click the link, that's what it's here for!
