This is a really good idea! There's a bunch of stuff linked in the translations-and-archives channel over on xenochat that I think we could include here. I'd link some stuff from my own bookmarks but I think a lot of it is already in the aforementioned channel and I don't wanna steal anyone else's thunder.

If nothing else I really want this to be a collaborative effort so definitely feel free to add anything you want. I'm kinda busy with work and other Junk and probably won't be able to return to this until Tuesday.

Also I haven't really figured out how I'm gonna organize just the general Xenostuff that might include several of the games yet.

I started the thread early to light a fire under my butt

We could have an all-Xeno/meta-series category in addition to the Gears/Blade/Saga-specific ones, maybe?

Off the top of my head, I think Mira has translations and stuff from the entire Xeno-verse, so that might be a good one to include in a general category.

Things relevant to my extremely specific personal interests:
XS1 Official Design Materials (on archive.org)
XS3 Perfect Guide (h/t @Valkyrie!)
Pied Piper translation (also archive.org, but there's an alternate mirror here)
some sort of player's guide for PP? (in Japanese but translatable)
PP YouTube playthrough

There's also the Xenogears/Saga wiki, which a friend of mine has been trying to clean up now that the Silent Hill [REDACTED] guy is banned from pooping all over it, so that might be worth linking as well (and hey, if anyone else wants to contribute, there's still a lot of work to do)!

Also, would we want to have a directory for more fandom-based stuff, e.g. podcasts and/or creative works, if that's not too far from the original purpose of this thread? Maybe also a list of links to other threads on this forum with reference material, like @SilverSoul's archive of magazine scans?

Yeah I was thinking about including something like that as well as possibly a list of self-hosted stuff maybe somewhere just to have it organized in one spot.

Hey. I've actually been scouring the web every now and then to find as many Xeno related sites as I can. So far I have 41ish, counting for duplicates because of revived versions of older sites it's more like mid-30s. It's a lot of fansites and a few guide sites, though I think you've got the most important ones already ofc. Just thought I'd mention because I've found this really fun for some reason lol and you mentioned perhaps having a fandom category so just say if you'd like me to link anything I've dug up :)

Yeah honestly we'll take anything!

Edit: except for Xeno Underground stuff cause we're kinda working with them.

Ah okay. Well apart from XU, its forum and a few of the links XU has listed there should be some other ones. Hopefully. 😅

I've been wondering whether making a video on Xeno websites would be an interesting idea 🤔

Wow thank you so much! I'll definitely get to adding some of this stuff when I'm not at work. Thanks again for your contribution!

I was gonna shout out Mori/Forest for the Pied Piper manga adaptation, among other things (I see there's already a link to their blog post with the official concept art, but they could also be included under fan works if we're doing a category for that).

Jibunkaidou is another one of my favorite Japanese fanartists from way back. I don't think they've updated recently but their older work is still archived on there, you just gotta click around a bit.

Found a few more sites here. They appear to be German Xenoblade guides.

http://xenoblade.org
http://xenoblade2.org
http://xenoblade2.org/torna
http://xenobladex.org

I've also found this Xenosaga site. It also appears to have a forum but when going to register it fails :(
http://www.xenosaga.org/umn/

Here's a page to download the original Japanese "A Missing Year" as well as the English translations.
http://www.id-tec.de/xenosaga/
Most of the side options are XenoTensei links that don't work anymore.
