4th April 2001, Richard Morgan created a new website. Called "Zonefox's
Scrap Brain Hideout", it concentrated on one particular story
of the UK's Sonic The Hedgehog Comic (STC). The story in question
followed Tails meeting 'Sab and the flock' and them showing him
what a Zonerunner was, and why, in turn, he was one.
was so impressed by the concept of the Zonerunner, he decided
his furry, Zonefox, should be one. After many fanfics, art, and
even a few comics, University stopped Rich from updating the site
anymore, and it fell into disrepair, and went offline.
months later, Rich founded the Zonerunner
Concept Yahoo Group. This consisted of several
people interested in doing material about Zonerunners. It still
exists today, with the hardcore Zonerunner fans chatting there.
Alex Donaldson, had become friends with Rich and interested in
the Zonerunner Concept. Back in the day of the Scrap Brain Hideout,
I had talked with Rich about making a game about Zonerunners,
starring Alex and Zonefox. The game never got further than the
planning stages, due to a time shortage between myself and Rich.
after the group had restarted, I felt the idea itching at the
back of my mind, and it began to bother me. This time I didn't
hesitate and dived head first into the idea by spilling it out
who became interested in the idea.
afterwards I founded RunnerSoft with Cinos Hedgean,
to look over the making of the game. With a new era and new type
of Zonerunner material, we decided there should be a new site,
and Rich began work. Soon after, "The Runner's Hub"
the bigger and better brother to the Scrap Brain Hideout appeared.
happens next, who knows?
