    Just in case the IC threads are up next on the chopping block, or if the forum goes down for whatever reason, is there any simple way i could download or otherwise save the contents of the thread to a word document, PDF, or something similar?

    It's rare for past games to be preserved in their entirety, wouldn't mind holding onto that, just in case i want to revisit it again years down the line.
    Two options that I am aware of:
    1) Thread Tools->Show printable version. Downside: spoilers won't expand
    2) Grab it from the archive (see this recent thread where I went into the details). Downside: it breaks quotes.

    Alternatively, you can just print the website page to pdf, which should retain both spoilers and quotes, but has to be done one page at a time.

    And myth and legend thrive
