LunarNET/RPGFan Turns 10 Years Old
01.10.08 - 4:17 PM

A few weeks ago (December 24th to be exact), the website LunarNET, which later became RPGFan, turned 10 years old. This is a huge milestone considering how many websites have come and gone during this time and somehow we're still standing strong.

To make a long story short, LunarNET was originally created by GhaleonOne (Mickey Shannon) on December 24th, 1997. A few weeks later, I joined the site to help him out. After a while, we changed the site's name to RPGFan (in March of 1999) and the rest is history. For more details about the history of LunarNET/RPGFan, feel free to read my VERY detailed "History of RPGFan" article that I wrote back in 2002. It's an interesting read for people interested in knowing about the ups and downs of starting a website in the late 90s and the soap opera drama that ensued within the first 4 years of operation. However, keep in mind that this article was written back in 2002 so it's not exactly as polished as what we usually do now.

In any case, Mickey left RPGFan in early 2000 and eventually recreated LunarNET solely as a Lunar website about a year later. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of LunarNET, Mickey has completely redesigned LunarNET and posted a 10th anniversary feature on the site. For those who are unaware, LunarNET is by far the most comprehensive ressource of Lunar content on the internet. With information on all the Lunar games, thousands of screenshots, details about various Lunar products, etc, LunarNET is clearly the place to go for Lunar-related stuff. The website is so extensive that Ubisoft asked LunarNET to be the "official" website of its Lunar Legend game on the GameBoy Advance and their Lunar: Dragon Song game on Nintendo DS.

So, head on over to LunarNET to celebrate its 10th anniversary!
