My backups had errors with The Elves of Amanereli and the Dwarven Checkerboard (some html files had 0 bytes). Seeing as both had been preserved earlier (and probably in higher quality), I decided to defer to my elders. Those files are here and here respectively.

Below are all my back ups of legends, plus links to other backups of the same threads, if they exist and I'm aware of them.

2212 z-level Adamantine Spire
An AussieGuy Megaproject - The Spire of Armok
Chasing the elusive Mermaid
Choose Your Own DF - Goblin Blight Island
Constructivory, being 2 gigs is broken into these files:
       Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5
Dwarven Computer
Dwarven Language Codified
Dwarven lunar calendar
The Epic of Sodel Udir
A Journey to Mountain-Banners
Kisat Dur: the Dwarven Martial Art - Superdorf's backup (pdf)
The Legend of Ungrashzon
Migrursut: What Comes After The World Ends? - Bearskie's backup
Presenting: The Most Interesting Dwarf in the World
One Dwarf Against the World
On the Nature of Dwarves
Questionable Ethics
The Life and Times of Reginald Goblinstomper, Elephant at Large
Smallhands
Game of Life dwarfputing megaproject
The Spry Volcano
The Increasingly Tragic Tale of Dumplin


And in case any of these become legends in the future,
My personal favorites include Fikuk Urdim - the Field of Towers, Seamenace, and Numbercurse.
Those all in one.
And here's all the Spookyforts

Also I seem to have given myself a massive headache from doing this, so I will probably take a few days off after I finish The Warrens of Oric the Awesome.

Take it easy, boss. Hopefully we don't need to do this sort of thing again for a while.

Definitely some great work being done on the preservation front.  The sheer volume of the material is monumentous, and I'm not sure I'm young enough to enjoy all of it.  That's a good problem to have in general though.

I should have The Warrens of Oric the Awesome finished by the time I go to bed, I won't be able to upload it anytime soon as I haven't checked a bit of it and that's probably gonna take a few days. Also it's gonna have to be split into several bits because as it's almost three gigs.


Also I seem to have given myself a massive headache from doing this, so I will probably take a few days off after I finish The Warrens of Oric the Awesome.

The headache is still here but I shall persevere until the I'm finished!

Mornin all.  I'm still rewriting the HoL to includes our archiving efforts, but I think we captured everything as best we were able, including restorations of some previously lost images.  Thank you to everyone who helped, I'm hoping this marks the last time such a project is needed.  For all future Legends, I will make a point of ensuring a copy is saved regularly.

I'll just mention that I have all of The Warrens of Oric the Awesome downloaded, I just haven't had time to check through all of it to make sure it's working as I've had some stuff come up, but I am half way through and I'll upload it when I'm finished in a few days.

Somewhat surprised that Dawnthunder isn't actually on the list. The ending was ignoble death by boredom, but the fort is one of a kind.
EDIT: (+1 for Dawnthunder, obviously)

After being reminded of (and re-reading) it, I would like to re-nominate Dawnthunder: !!FUN!! with RAWs as a HoL candidate, on the grounds of its unique premise and general amusing insanity.

(While it didn't get in last time due to a lack of votes, it might have better luck this time.)

First real succession game I followed as it was going on. What a beauty that was. Been meaning to experiment with the same ideas in 50.08

Give me a shout if you need someone to go through and archive more - happy to dump a few hours once every few months to the preservation effort. Let's find ways to make all the fine work you do as automated as possible. Maybe some sort of automatic email system to the thread OPs of ongoing legends?

Fort is running at 21 FPS, the ground is having a panic attack in places, and what looks like a conga line of zombified Hungry Heads has formed on (I think) Z-level 32 of the caverns.
I love dwarven status reports.
