An Orcs in the Webbe Original!

Orcs in the Webbe started out in 2004 as an online repository of articles styled after the original Wessex Games Flintloque magazine, Orcs in the Hills, containing reprinted articles from other Flintloque websites, the Orcs in the Hills magazines themselves and other wargaming publications. As time passed however more and more people submitted brand new original articles written exclusively for inclusion on OITW. Now, nearly twenty years on, the list of contributers includes dozens of authors including the current Flintloque team at AA as well as most of the original creators of the classic articles on whose principles the site was created.
