Welcome to the New RPGBOT.net

After nearly a year of work, today we are moving to the new version of RPGBOT.net. If you’re reading this, you’re already here.

I’ve spoken about the transition in previous blog posts, but rather than send you chasing through those, I’ll summarize the key points.

Why?

To be brief: Adding content to the old site was a pain. I wrote everything in raw HTML, and while I’m pretty good at HTML that made it difficult to bring in other authors. Random Powell has written several excellent 5e subclass handbooks for the site, and I want that to happen more often. Converting his work into HTML presents a huge time cost, and moving to the new site removes that barrier. That means more of the content that you’re here for, written and published faster, and at higher quality because now I have spell checking.

What’s New on the New Site?

  • A blog (You’re reading it!)
  • Comments on blog posts (scroll down)
  • Built-in site search (It’s over there on the right side)
  • Quality-of-life improvements like a table of contents on long pages
  • A spellchecker

Any More Big Plans?

Yes, absolutely. But those are secret for the moment. Stick around.

I Found Something Weird

I’ve tried really hard to get everything working just as well as on the old site, but there will inevitably be some stuff that broke or which looks weird for some reason.

If you run into issues like broken links, pages that look weird, or anything in general that seems to be broken, please let me know so I can fix it. Feel free to leave a comment below if you’d like, but as usual I’m always available via email.
