Many photographs are copyright 2001 to 2013 Richard Whitwell and are used by permission. We may well have missed a required acknowledgement or three, if so, please accept our sincere apologies ... contact us here if you spot any omissions or mistakes.

Decklin's Domain is a personal web-site reflecting the interests and whims of Decklin (The Twisted Dwarf) as he is known by a few dedicated players of DEMISE: Rise of the Ku'Tan and now DEMISE: Ascension. The site(s) is/are currently/have been hosted on Microsoft's bCentral USA, Loosefoot Hosting Canada (where ASP and PERL and CGI can be experimented with and often are.) and at Hostway, U.K. None of these organizations have any responsibility for the content of this and associated sites and vice versa. A bulletin board is also maintained at Yuku (formerly Ezboard), the same proviso applies. Many thanks to Blue Knight, Dogg, Lappen, Moroth, Sortiri and Spyfox also for their support and assistance in the early years, to JP, Gold Dragon and Bobmarco since we acquired Mordor and Demise, to the 300 or so users of the old board, the 1500 members of the current Demise and Ascension Forums and the four thousand + players of Demise: Ascension and Devil Whiskey.
Maintaining all of the above sites however, including the never-ending supply of "[Insert your own subject] for Dummies" books as well as various server and PC upgrades, exceed Decklin's allowance and so on the general pages a large number of affiliate links have appeared over time in hopes that eventually a balance may be achieved. The downside of this (for you, the reader who hates commercials) is that they are unavoidable on many pages BUT we do not intentionally allow pop-ups. Another downside for those of you who may see something of interest advertized from a 3rd party is that we have no responsibility for the merchants nor their treatment of you, the consumer, or for the quality of any goods you purchase. Let the buyer beware! (I'd have said it in Latin but I only took French and German at school.)
The upside is that we have dealt with many of the companies and products that appear on this site (all in "Dungeon Tested Software" for example) and we DO want to hear of any bad experiences or other problems.
