Welcome to the new GO!

After years of independent website hosting, we have moved to WordPress. It is simply a matter of cost. HNE as an entity is entirely not profitable. No one has made any money from HNE in years. In fact, the act of paying for web hosting and the renewal of a web domain each year costs more than HNE earns. This move is meant to reduce the annual costs to simple domain renewal.

With this change also comes the end of Games – Ohio. Since 2002, Games – Ohio has provided tabletop gaming opportunities to north-central Ohio. But, as with HNE, GO eventually turned out to cost too much. Games – Ohio has already begun the process of turning over parts of itself to other game organizers in the area and will effectively end by October 2018.

That being said, HNE as a website will become strictly a blog to store information pertinent to its owners hobbies. Nothing more or less.

Thank you for your years of patronage!
