The Complete Guide to Phantasy Star III



About
Throughout the years many Phantasy Star sites have come and gone. Some were lost forever but others I managed to snag a copy of before they vanished. As part of my goal to make this a "complete" guide to Phantasy Star III I decided to post some of these old sites for historical purposes. One reason I started this site was a lack of decent Phantasy Star III content on the web, looking back at these reminds me of just how little there really was. Still, a few of these lost pages have some nuggets worth preserving.

Disclaimers and stuff: Otherwise these look, and in some cases sound, exactly like they originally did.

When Yahoo! announced they'd be killing GeoCities in I rushed to grab everything Phantasy Star III related. Here's what remained as of May 2009, sorted roughly in order of quality:

FortuneCity
FortuneCity was another free web host, it was never as big as GeoCities but hung around a little longer. It stopped providing free hosting as of April 30, 2012. Here are the only two abandoned Phantasy Star III sites that were still there:

The author of this site attempted to create animated maps of the all the overworlds. I'm not even brave enough to tackle something like that. The maps he completed look great.

This was one of my favorite Phantasy Star sites. It was dedicated to all the glitches and continuity errors in the series. I'm still holding out hope it will reappear someday.
