RPGBOT is an online resource for tabletop roleplaying games, including informative articles, online tools, and the RPGBOT.Podcast to help you be a better player and play better games.

These are living resources. As new content is published and as new concepts arise, we update our content to reflect the current state of the game. If at any point the contents of a specific page appear incomplete, it may be because we are working on improvements to that page.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or requests, check our FAQ page, or feel free to email me. Keep in mind that if you’re looking for an article which you feel may be missing, it may be on our To-Do List already. I’m one person (plus some really great friends), and we do this as a hobby so sometimes it takes me a while to get to things.
