THE SAVAGE LAND... The place where civilizations clash and both the medieval and the modern worlds creep up on each other, giving ample adventure to he who craves it! One must always be wary for the sights and sounds which assail the senses are those of which the world has yet to truly comprehend! Welcome traveller, to this bizarre land. Wear your armor proudly and make peace with such dieties as thou might pray to. For one never knows what one might encounter... In The Savage Land! The Savage One
:::Friday December 20, 2002::: - Just shy of our full 12th year in existence, The Savage Land BBS will be closing its doors. The Land will always continue to exist in our memories but, for now, it must fall to the ravages of time. Electronic Communication has moved way beyond Bulletin Board Systems and although NOTHING on the Internet can truly and honestly match or rival what we've experienced in these lands, it seems the appeal of multi-chats and messages has taken most away from these simple times of individual callers. Thanks to everyone who has travelled these roads, especially Thoth who's been there from the start, you will not be forgotten. Although the Land itself will fall into the annals of history, our Tomes will live on through the magic of Archives. Who knows? Maybe one day, The Savage Land BBS will rise again! :::Thursday February 28, 2002::: - Today is The Savage Land's 10 Year Anniversary! Can you believe it?! Wow! I always hoped we'd be able to last this long, but I wasn't very sure it was going to happen, especially afte the major slowdowns of the last few years! But it's here! Happy Anniversary to us!! :::Tuesday January 1, 2002::: - ScapeGoats still exist! For recognition of duty above and beyond... Wild Munchkin garners the ScapeGoat crown for 2002!!! Let your stones fly and all hail the chief! Lift your glasses! :) :::Thursday January 4, 2001::: - In just under 9 years of its full-time existence, The Savage Land got its 50,000th caller today! The honor went to the man deserving of it the most: Thoth!! Congrats to you, sir! Thank you for playing and let's aim for that 100,000th call!! (giggle) :::Monday January 1, 2001::: - Happy New Year!! And the ScapeGoat for this year is none other than... GOOFY! Voted in absentia! :> Even though he's only human, he deserves the title like none before him! :::Friday September 1, 2000::: - Congratulations to HBK on the birth of his first neice!! How nice! :) :::Saturday July 8, 2000::: - The Savage Land wishes Vette and Sunshine the Happiest of Lifetimes on this, their wedding day! Congratulations! :::Sunday January 2, 2000::: - Proving that even Sysops aren't exempt from blame, The Savage Land Year 2000 ScapeGoat is Savage! Barely beating out Lucien Bouchard for the title, Savage figures that what with the board's non-compliant quirks and anything else that could happen, it probably would/should be his fault! :) :::Saturday January 1, 2000::: - The world hasn't blown up, and life continues. WWIV BBS' are not Y2k compliant, so if you see freaky/ strange things during your stay here, do not be alarmed. The important part of the system (message sharing) still functions. The rest are quirky semantics. :) :::Wednesday April 15, 1998::: - It's a BOY!!! UNCLE HBK shares his joyous news as Matthew comes into the world this morning at 12:53am, weighing in at 8lbs 4ozs! Congrats!! :::Tuesday December 30, 1997::: - It's official! Coming in from behind in a VERY surprise manouever, Thoth managed to rally his forces and come up the winner for 1998's ScapeGoat award!! HBK leaves the year with some very momentous disasters which will forever be blamed on him. Like Light Castle the year before him, he can step down knowing his power was strong indeed! And now, let any befallen mishaps land on the crown of Thoth, as it will definately be HIS fault! :::Saturday November 29, 1997::: - The shock reached a new level tonight when Barry informed me of Giggles' passing the night of Thurs Nov 20, 1997. She couldn't bear life without her soulmate and decided to join him. The Savage Land is that much poorer for not having thier online Romeo and Juliette any more. Like the tragic love story, this too ends in a manner leaving us all wondering if there was anything more we could have done. Again, our deepest condolences go out to the both their families in this heart-wrenching time. Goodbye, Violet Poole... :::Monday November 17, 1997::: - Hearty congratulations are sent out to Snowbird and her family on the arrival of Rebecca Lynn on Friday November 7th, 1997 @7:52am! :::Friday November 14, 1997::: - It was with incredible shock that I read Barry's post of M's tragic death (Wed. Nov 12 @7:35am). So young, so full of life, on his way to carving a life out with Giggles, and to die in such a manner. The Savage Land and all its denizens offer our deepest condolences to M's friends and family, and especially to Giggles who was deeply in love with her fiancee and it showed in each of her posts. I don't know what else to say... Goodbye Philip Samuel Burton... :::Friday August 29, 1997::: - The News Is Out!!! Elfie's pregnant!! Congrats to Elfie & Spock! Sleep now because you never will again!!! :) :::Saturday July 26, 1997::: - Happy Wedding Day to Barry & Silver Chic!!! :::Sunday May 18, 1997::: - Happy Wedding Day to Elfie & Dr. Spock!!! :::Monday March 3, 1997::: - It's a Girl!!!

Congratulations to AUNT ELFIE on the birth of her nephew (Taylor Alben)!!!

Although somewhat groggy when I spoke to him, the first-time Uncle is doing fine :) :::Monday October 30, 1995::: - The Savage Land is VERY happy that we are still Canadians. Canada IS the greatest Country in the world and must continue to survive. Peace, Love, and Happiness. :::Thursday June 29, 1995 (@3:00AM!)::: - The Savage Land and all its Denizens extend a hearty congratulations to Elfie and Dr. Spock on their engagement!
