Something the site was lacking before was a comprehensive list
of Links. Below is a whole bunch of links that I find particularly
helpful when trawling the Internet. Some of them are roleplaying
related, some of them not, but all of them are worth a look. All
external links open in a separate window.
Roleplaying Related Links
The Wizards of the Coast D&D website is a mine of information
for the game. New rules, new monsters, new feats, web enhancements,
free adventures..... the list goes on and on. This is an impressive
site and well worth and explore.
From this page you can follow the link to the OGL. The OGL consists
of a number of plain text files that reproduce (quite legally and
for free) almost the entire contents of the PHB, DMG
and Monster Manual. Extremely useful for cutting and pasting
rules, and also for players who cannot afford to invest in the books.
The OGL is for version 3.5 of the game. If anyone is looking for
the version 3.0 of the OGL it is no longer available on the Wizards
site, but I downloaded it and will email to you on request.
Everything you ever wanted to know about the d20 system but were
afraid to ask. EN World is a d20 news site that gives you the low
down on everything published of d20 related merchandise. And believe
me, that's a lot of merchandise.
On of my guilty secrets is that I really like the Rifts roleplaying
game. Palladium Books publish Rifts and although the format of the
books is dated, they're always late and the system is attrocious
even by the standards of 2nd edition AD&D I can't help but like
it. One day I'll convert it to the d20 system. One day.
If you are shopping for books or DVDs on the Internet stop by this
site first. Once you have a price comparison you'd be advised to
visit the sites themselves to make sure the comparison is accurate
but this site is certainly the first step to getting a good deal.
Almost always the cheapest source of DVDs I have found, and the
postage is free as well.
You didn't know the shop in Canterbury had its own website? If you
are as fantatical about comics as I am then having such a quick
an easy means to purchase so many back issues is a dangerous thing
indeed. Join the Adventure Gaming Society and get a 10% discount.
I've always been a Marvel man, rather than DC. Here's the official
site with all the hyperbole you can expect from Mighty Marvel.
An exemplary news site for comic fanatics. If it's not on here then
it isn't worth knowing.
A handy way to value your comic collection. If you have one. If
not, then some of the pictures are quite pretty.
Handbook of Marvel Comics Creators
When I first found this site I marvelled that anyone could find
the time to create and update it. This is a truly incredible achievement
and very useful for saddos like me who are trying to catch up on
years of missed continuity.
The web's premier Spider-Man review site that catalogues every appearance
of the webbed-wonder in any comic published. I have recently joined
the staff as the regular reviewer of Amazing
Fantasy and Araña:
The Heart of the Spider. Obviously I don't have enough to do
with my time.
Reviews of the most recent X-Men books and more besides. This is
always a good read. Updated weekly.
Star Wars Links
My favourite Star Wars collector's site. An invaluable aid in tracking
down all those indistinguishable figures.
The official site isn't what it used to be since half of it became
subscription only. However, there's still some good stuff there.
I won't say anything. Just follow the link. If you're not on the
site an hour later, I'll be very surprised.
