RPG (Role-Playing Game) Research - Role-Playing Game Research Archives Once Again Available to the Public
After extensive challenges with insurance companies (see earlier postings for explanations), we can finally once again re-open the 10,000+ content items in the world's largest free and open knowledge
Thanks to the generous support of donors like our Patreon supporters, RPG Community Center supporters, and a big donation from Dimension 20 / College Humor Media / Dropout.tv, we can finally afford the added $1,300/yr) cyber liability libel coverage insurance (on top of the previous $7k+) we need to re-open the world's largest free and open knowledgebase on the effects and uses of all role-playing game formats: tabletop, live-action, electronic, and hybrids.
It will take us a few weeks for our 100% volunteer-staff to finish combing through the 10,000+ items to get everything switched back to public access, but we started the process, so expect those links to start working again soon!
If you get a dead link or login prompt for content you are attempting to access. Please contact our Support Help Desk so we can add it to our list of content to switch from private back to public access.
