The Illuminati BBS TFOS game set in Greendale lasted through some 12 or more players, two different BBS packages, and almost a decade, counting a brief incarnation on Illuminati Online in 1996. The following five archives contain almost all of the public action (and some of the private messages) that comprised the campaign.

I want to thank Walter Milliken and "Archangel" Beth McCoy for their kindness in providing me with these files. I kept my own copies of the game turns, but it was (foolishly) in hardcopy. I had once hoped that, as time allowed, I woud dig through those hardopies to provide more of the "secret" background stuff that went on in email when characters were not in full view of everyone else, but I have never seemed to find the time or energy to do so.

Available archives:
