Welcome

The Starsiege Compendium Project is an effort by myself to recreate as much of the original Compendium into a website that uses the newer web technologies available.

Back in the day, most Starsiege sites dealt with the multiplayer game and didn't cover the lore. As time went on and the active community shrank the sites that did deal with the lore were no longer available. It seemed like such a shame that so much effort and love that was poured into the universe would just disappear, so I decided to take this up as a hobby project for myself.

The site is a constant work in progress as I add sections, modify the site with new features, or try to enhance mobile compatibility. So there may or may not be some errors or glitches while your viewing.

Also, feel free to email me, if you want to talk 'Siege.

The Starsiege Community

Siegers both past and present (that are on Facebook) have congregated here to swap old stories of the 'siege and to reconnect with lost friends.

The easiest way to get back on Starsiege today, contains all patches and modern system fixes needed in one installer.


One of the last active-playing Starsiege Squads. Current hosts of the Starsiege Master Servers.


MIB was known for its scripting and editing tools back in the day. The site is still maintained to this day by Sentinel, their leader.

Eobasilus's guides are comprehensive walkthroughs of the Human and Cybrid campaigns, along with vehicle stats and tactical analysis's.


A no frills archive of everything Aldaron could find that was online and related to Starsiege. It's easier to ask what he doesn't have on there.

ATAC was there in the first years of Starsiege, and are now establishing an online presence again to reconnect with former squadmates.


Dont like Facebook? Alright. Then try the new Discord channel.

An archive of all things Starsiege throughout the years, ranging from community-made items and modifications, to material from Starsiege: 2845.

Shoutouts

Dis Pilot Some1, Arikraz, Rand, Rock, Aldaron, Bluefox, Mercurial, Angel-A, Taro and everyone else I used to play with on the servers that I can't remember offhand.

The old -=NSDF=- crew. Thanks for putting up with an idiot teenager.

Mhaddy, for providing me hosting on The Junkyard back in the prime years of the Starsiege Holdover, saving me from Geocities purgatory.

THE DIVINE DESIGN GFX CREW (DDGFX). Learning how to do web graphics with you guys was a blast. I got more from you guys than I ever would have otherwise.

Snow and his Starsiege Complete. Play it with the nGlide wrapper and the game runs and plays as if it were 1998 on a Voodoo card again. Most screenshots came from this.

The 2845 team/ClanCore. Yes, if nothing else than providing us with a fictional expansion of what happened between Starsiege and Tribes.

Plague's Let's Play series of the Cybrid campaign for indirectly giving me the idea to create the Compendium Project.
