NOTE: Any links to the organization RPG Research's research archives might not be currently accessible to the public due to recent insurance requirements.
Historically, for decades, our research archives have been 100% free and open to the public (to the extent permitted by copyright and privacy laws). We are doing all we can to get the added insurance necessary to allow us to re-open our research archives to the public. This requires substantial donations because the insurance companies consider this a high risk function.
Our research repository contains more than 10,000 content items on the effects of role-playing games, including thousands of items not available anywhere else in the world (such as the Paul Cardwell collection donated to RPG Research by the Paul Cardwell Estate, his widow Gladys Cardwell).
YOUR DONATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN OUR ABILITY TO AFFORD THE ANNUAL INSURANCE REQUIRED TO ENABLE US TO RE-OPEN THE WORLD'S LARGEST FREE AND OPEN RESEARCH REPOSITORY ON THE EFFECTS OF ROLE-PLAYING GAMES TO THE PUBLIC.
