    Having a very hard time getting to the page. Can it be made available elsewhere, in case this is an ongoing thing?

    I got one eventually, there was just something weird going on with the web page or something. iT kept losing a connection or somesuch; I hit reload for about ten minutes. I had similar, but smaller, problems with other pages on the site. No problems anywhere else on the internet.

    I chose the 3.5e edition to clear up the shoddy job in the Epic Level Handbook. Also converting him to 4e the way he is is impossible and I think an insult to the characters creator and player. I spent 2 days trying to convert him properly and after that I just tossed it aside. I just couldn't scale him down to "make him fit". The world and the character are much more important than the edition and with the loss of Vancian magic in 4e, Mordenkainen just wasn't the Mordenkainen we all knew.

    Also, his stats have been presented before in 1e and 2e so this made sense. Also we've been sticking with 3.5e b/c to date its been the most widely accepted and used especially with Living Greyhawk.

    Hope that helps.
