RIP Irony.com

For a long time, there was a site at irony.com that hosted tools for role-players, such as calendar generators for a variable number of months with a variable number of days each and a variable number of moons; random city map generation; dice rolling; and similar things.

After a while, it seemed to have stopped updating, but many parts of it continued to work. This state continued on for several years as well. (I'd look at the site, especially the "on-Web RPG Tools" section) every now and then, perhaps once every year or two.)

However, that period seems to be over now; when I had a look just now out of nostalgia, I saw a very different site: "Social Satire for the Masses". Ah well: sic transit gloria webi.

Hm. The newest entry on the Wayback Machine (from June 2006) still has the old site, in case you want to take a look. So the takeover can't have been that long ago (less than a year). Strange, then, that the current site advertises "Online since 1993". (Presumably, then, not always at that URL.)
