Back on Modern Tales, now with a free archive

Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan's archives at Modern Tales are now free as Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan has become part of Modern Tales' Strip Lounge. Nearly all of the comic's 15-year run to date can now be read at Modern Tales.
I left Modern Tales almost a year ago, but it turns out it's one of those setups where you can leave but never actually be gone. Like being a musician in Fairport Convention. I never deleted my archives there, simply because I couldn't bear to have my data entry work destroyed, and when Joey Manley announced soon after that he was going to make most of the content on the site free under non-exclusive terms, I eagerly agreed to be part of that. This week, the new version of Modern Tales went live, and I spent a bit of time getting the archives back up to date with the main site. I've added The Green Knight's Belt, Alchemists, Headsmen, The Death Warrant and The New Sheriff, which leaves out the recent re-run of Keenquest/Even in Arcadia from my main site. That last story won't be added to the Modern Tales arvhives, because it involves the work of other creators and I don't want the hassle of getting separate permissions from everyone involved again.
Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan will continue to be primarily published at rocr.net, but starting with the next storyline, it will update simultaneously on its main site and on Modern Tales again.
