    This is just an update on what's been happening to Terra Arcanum >> the World of Troika Games for the passed few weeks. So far, I've converted the majority (95%) of the old Arcanum content over to our new format. So things like the <a href="http://www.terra-arcanum.com/index.php?section=library&content=characterbank&id=quests">Walkthrough database</a>, <a href="http://www.terra-arcanum.com/index.php?section=library&content=characterbank&id=locations">list of locations</a> and <a href="http://www.terra-arcanum.com/index.php?section=library&content=characterbank&id=itemsslideshow">Items Slideshow</a> are all back online and functioning properly. There are one or two things still to do, most notably the character portraits and the web character planner (which may be ditched as on closer inspection it seems to be built on obselete data), but those things that are going up should be online given time.
    <br>Of course, this doesn't mean everything is working perfectly just yet. Some of the "fixed" pages still have broken links within them, I'll get to them soon enough. There's also the serious lack of content for all of Troika's other games. I sincerely apologise to anyone who was looking for any information about those games, but you can be rest assured that, once again, it will come given time.
    <br>However, the next phase will mostly be unseen. Before I can really start adding any new content to the site, I have to tweak the menu code a bit and, more importantly, build a bunch of pages that all work off a database so that adding, sorting and viewing data can be a breeze while also enabling us to have some pretty neat content features. This will take some considerable time for me as it involves a complex calculation of factors along the lines of: ((PlanningTheDatabase + (LearningObscurePHPFunctions * LearningMoreJavaScript)) * Testing) + (FreeTime / Procrastination)
    <br>Given all of that, I'm getting some pretty funny results so my calculation must be off. Anyway, if there's anything you absolutely want me to fix or include right now, just holler and I'll get it up ASAP.
