Welcome to the RPGnet gamer's encyclopedia. This is a set of definitive links to accurate source material for scenarios, worlds, and sourcebooks. Rather than present 10 million links that you can never sort through, we've focused on the one (or two) most definitive sites for each topic, i.e. that person who keeps the most useful references. Some of these topics are direct links, and some are indices, but all are designed to get to you distilled information in as few clicks as possible. Enjoy! Comments and suggestions for new sections gleefully accepted by Sandy (sandy@clark.net). Eternally a work in progress.

Everything can be found at either the academically arranged Basalt Regional library or the overflowing WWW Virtual library.
