Not sure why I decided to wander here tonight, but I'm glad to see you guys are still alive and kicking. (The site seems a bit...under the weather though.) I never wound up posting all that much here, but it's nice to see something still keeping the old name alive.

Yes, although sadly I don't know if it'll be for much longer, as it seems most of the userbase has long moved on--not a whole lot of activity here anymore, sadly.  :(

But yes, some of us are still here and still pop in to see what's happening every now and then.  :)

Wow!! I can't believe I remembered my password, on the first try even!!

I'm still alive and well, much has changed about me and my life (currently cringing at past 10+ yr ago me, however i'll keep everything on this site the same for the sake of being recognizable :3) but the thing that hasn't changed is that I've still been playing a lot of Descent!!

Just recently been reminiscing on the memories and relationships I've made through this game. I'm happy to see that this site is still around. (although in a little bit of disrepair, but I digress)

I'd love to get a MP game going sometime or pop in a server but a lot of stuff seems inaccessible, stuff like Vortex, descent.cx and even stuff like maps/missions, very sad to see :C

I'm happy that there's still some passion for this game though, I hope you all stay well!!

If any of y'all would ever like to contact me just lemme know, I got Steam, Discord, FB, all, or at least most of that junk. (Is there a Descent discord??? I'd join if there was one!!!)

Maybe!! I'd be around for sure. Actually started hanging out in the Overload discord lately, and been starting/playing a lot of matches. Good fun! Descent still wins me over for sure, though.

I lurk, therefore I am.
There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow s--- up.

There just isn't much to say about Descent anymore. But, I will keep this place alive as long as I can.

Descent 3 online was a blast! I had great memories there.

I miss that a lot! It was one of the only online games I played and it was soooo much fun. CTF varicose veins, ahh....how wonderful those days were.

There were other good ones too.

The descent.cx browser is back up.
http://d3.descent.cx/tracker.d3

And the Tsetsefly browser here:

There's also a working version of Vortex here:

 Checkor keeps the BOZ bot ascent server going so you can join and not get too bored waiting for someone else to join, which still occasionally happens.
I've been in a few games the past few weeks with 4 or more players.

A few of us stay in touch on Facebook here:

I still check in here occasionally..

Best I can do is Overload. I have Descent on steam but I am not on computers much.
