Role-Playing Resources

Want to know more about this whole role-playing thing? Take a look through some of these resources. The world of role-playing is wide and immensely diverse – from traditional table-top play to indie games to live-action play to the emerging world of online role-playing. No matter your role-playing background, there’s likely something interesting here to explore!

Of course, we can hardly be exhaustive. We encourage you to submit some of the role-playing resources that are important to you and your play community for inclusion in this list. Drop us a line at OBFUSCATED EMAIL ADDRESS with any links you’d like us to consider.
