WELCOME TO PANDORA'S BOX
have visited this site!

This is a page with the goal of bringing all the RPG authors all they need. Especially reviews, contests and awards for your games. Here you can send in your game to me Paladin and I will review it, post it on my homepage and do this the same day I get the game on. I will try to be as fast as possible to bring you all a quality RPG service. Here there will be no more waiting for reviews, you can be almost sure that the next day your game and review will be up. so why go somewhere else when this place is all a RPG author needs? My motto is "Speed, Quality & Effectiveness". So the next time you have a game for reviewing, send it to the Pandora's Box!
(Notice: All of you that have send me RPG maker games over E-mail have to upload them somewhere on the net or send them to rpg_reviews@yahoo.com  , it is better that you upload them somewhere since it is as fast as sending it over E-mail. So all of you that have send me anything (exe, zip etc.) over E-mail will have to upload it or send it to the other address. WARNING the other address is only for RPG games, any regular letters that are send to rpg_reviews@yahoo.com will be totally ignored!)

I have now made a new way of uploading your games. Go to Members' Area and enter the following:
Password: brasssheep55
Login Name: rpg_reviews

(You have to click on the File Manager link to the left to get to the upload function, and don't forget to send a E-mail after uploading so I know that your game is there)

All of you that know how to upload files to a server do it here and if you don't succeed then E-mail it to me on the following address.

NEWS - To tell that I'm still alive and some HTML improvements
Well no I am not dead is is only that I haven't got any games to review or other stuff to do... Actually I'll go upload some midis tomorrow and some more utils. The review of Legacy (My game) is done now, (it is by Vortex, the other one by Slade is incorrect) So look at the review on the Reviews section. Well that is all for today, and another reminder, all RM 95 questions should be send directly to Vortex. Not to me, and I'll have a vote now... I happen to know the location of the 100% Secret of Mana 2 translation, so I wonder if I should post it. E-mail me with your opinion.

I will get back to updating as soon as I can. But now to the update, I got an idea yesterday and I planned on doing it on my page. I have made three Midi sets. They are sets of midis that are everything a RPG author needs to start and do a little on a RPG Maker 95 game. Go check it out on the Midis section. Oh and if anyone else wants to make a Midi set I'll gladly upload it on my page. I have also added 41 various midis on the Midi section. Go look at it! And another page has got an award. Go check it out at the Awards section.

Reviews of Kittens Quest, President Evil and Legacy are up. (Legacy is my game :-) And I have got a tips of a good game for the contest and I am awaiting the E-mail. Plus a little notice, if you send the game to the rpg_reviews E-mail or upload your game to the server you have to E-mail me and tell me! And a smaller thing: The NeXus haven't put back my link yet, but I guess it will come soon... Since their link is still up on my page. And I would appreciate if you told me what you think of my game Legacy on my www board, I already have a review up but I need a public opinion too. And please, my tileset library is so thin so you want a girl to wear it (no offence all female RPG'ers) so I really want your custom tilesets.

- Paladin

Well the first thing that I want to say is that the problem with the NeXus is over. And then I have taken away my RPG Maker 95 game (it sucked anyway) and uploaded the second game I made for RM95 get it at the RPG Games section. I hope it is better than the first one. Download and let me know. And there are two new games uploaded, Gems of Infinity and a RPG Maker 2 game. Get them both at the RPG Games section. And there have been a lot of minor HTML corrections.

NEWS - Announcement
Now I want all of you to know that I am no thief, I only linked to those files because I had no time at the moment to upload them. There was never any whatsoever intention in my mind to harm or insult anyone with the links and I apologize truly if my actions have caused suffering or problems. But I want everyone to know that ANYONE can link to my files, do this if you think that your page will be better or more popular. My page is only glad to help and provide assistance. So if you need the files then link to mine! That was all I had to say.

- Paladin

I have added more midis to the midi section. Some misc. ones and Star Wars midis. It is a little late, but better now than never! Check them out! They all are at the RPG Midis section. And I have also uploaded a good midi player on the Utilities section.

- Paladin

NEWS - I need tilesets
Well my tileset library is a little thin so I need your homemade ones to put up on my page. Send them in and I will upload them.

- Paladin

NEWS - I have now taken away all NeXus files, at least I think I have
Now all files are either on my server or taken away from the site. I am sorry for all the inconvenience it may have created, and I hope that no one has anything against me. Those files were linked only for a short time because I planned to upload them anyway. But as I said I am sorry to everyone I have harmed or insulted with my actions. And by the way I wasn't "stealing" from NeXus but from another RPG site that had those tilesets. You will have to talk to him too.

NEWS - Not very big news, my game is up
As you can see I have uploaded my RM95 game on this homepage. It can be downloaded at the games section. It is pretty bad since it is a relatively old game. I am making a new one and it is already 10 times better. The demo of the new game comes in a week or two. I just uploaded this game for fun to see what you think of it.. :)

- Paladin

NEWS - New link posted and a small update

Don Miguel's link can be found at the Links section and there is a link to the RPG kingdom there too. And I have also added my AIM sn to the staff section. (As some may know I am sitting behind the most disturbing Firewall and can't use ICQ even the guys at Mirabilis couldn't help me. So I have to use AIM.)

NEWS - Fully translated Strings.dat uploaded
Well as the headline says I have uploaded the fully translated Strings.dat on my homepage and you can find it on the RPG Maker 95 section. For all of you that don't know what the Strings.dat is then I'll explain. Strings.dat are all the words (strings) in the RPG Maker 95 text editor (all the commands like attack and status messages like poisoned). So this is a very good thing if you really want to customize your RPG. And also a Magic.dat (the descriptions of all magic spells) is up for download (it is actually very good you can choose your own name and effect and be assured that you aren't mixing pictures).

Pandora's Box Legend
God gave mankind a box filled with all the evils in the world and He told the humans not to open it. But the curious humans opened the box and then all the evils in the world came out... Greed... Hate... Anger... Fear...
Now humankind was filled with evil, but the box wasn't entirely empty... there was one thing left... a single ray of hope... That hope keeps mankind from destroying itself, and that hope alone is the strongest power in the world...
