If you hadn’t heard, today Yahoo! announced the coming end of Yahoo! Groups: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/groups/SLN31010.html
What that basically says is that you will be unable to post new content after October 28th (12 days from today), and everything will be deleted on December 14th.
The StreetFighter RPG Group has been pretty dead for a long time, but it also represents 20 years of Street Fighter: The Storytelling fandom and discussion, and so it going away is kind of sad. If you have any messages or files here you’ve ever cared about, now is the time to save them off or archive them. Still, the Street Fighter RPG is not dead yet! What yet remains?
Well, some of you may know there was also a Google+ Street Fighter RPG Group f or a time, until Google killed that off as well, so now the only really live places to chat Street Fighter are in two Facebook groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sfstg/ is the English speaking SF RPG group and https://www.facebook.com/groups/sfrpgbr/ is the Portuguese speaking SF RPG group (because the Brazilians be keeping Street Fighter RPGing alive down there like nowhere else!)
As for web sites, Matt Meade’s site is still the best Street Fighter RPG site in the English speaking world at https://sfrpg.com/< /a> . While you’re there, I’d recommend checking out his excellent (if incomplete) “The G-File”, a slick looking pdf e-book of Styles, Maneuvers and Characters from all of the Street Fighter video games not represented in the old rules at https://sfrpg.com/g-file/ and also… maybe, if you’re interested, you could check out my compilation pdf of “Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game – 20th Anniversary Edition”, which contains the compiled rules from all of the old White Wolf books at https://sfrpg.com/sf20-
storytelling-game-20th-anniversary- edition/ . Someday I swear I’ll give it one more editing pass for all the little oversights I made on first release…
In the Portuguese speaking world, I’d recommend https://sfrpg.com.br . They keep working on fan produced ‘zine material and have their own version of “Street Fighter 20th Anniversary” they’ve been working hard on.
So, as the group winds down. Any of you still out there? If you are, maybe share a favorite memory, either from the old days of the Yahoo! Group, or any old Street Fighter RPG games or campaigns you were involved with in the past (or even the present!)
I remember playing this game since all of the way back in ’94. Like, a 5 year long campai gn that ended in the Street Fighter 2 tournament. Another campaign that was based around the Street Fighter: EX games, one based in Metro City… just tons of great memories. It’s still my favorite RPG, the one with the most experiences I remember fondly.
We await your return… Warrior!
