|Folks, I'm glad to announce that the Dragon Warriors Wiki ( http://dragonwarriors.wetpaint.com ), a not-for-profit for lovers of this game, has finally gone "live".
The Wiki started in 2008 as a resource for GMs and, owing in part to this and in part to copyright issues, was restricted access. This meant it was free to join but rather a hassle!
Since then the Wiki has grown significantly in scope such that it is no longer of interest simply to GMs. Regarding copyright issues, over the last few months we have worked with Mr. Wallis at Magnum Opus to put the site under a Creative Commons license, and give it a set of guidelines for contributors, which protect the publishers and copyright-holders.
Therefore as of last night, anyone can consult the Wiki without signing up.
You do still need to be a member in order to post to discussions or edit pages - we foresee that this restriction will be in place for some time so that we can keep the DW "atmosphere" as it should be. However what we hope is that it should be much easier for visitors to get an idea of the Wiki, and gradually get more involved.
Copy-pasted from elsewhere cos I think Cam sums it all up pretty well.
