Wish #87 asks:
What are three or more web sites you’ve used recently as a player or GM? Why do you use them? What do you get from them?
20’ by 20’ Room, of course!
- ThePulp.Net, which is the best source for pulp info, plus links to lots of free pulp ebooks.
- The FAS IRP, which is the Federation of American Scientists’ Intelligence Resource Program. Essential for modern-day espionage/technothriller games. And for Feng Shui.
- Incunabula, hub site for the Ong’s Hat mythos, which I sprung on my superhero players recently.
Other tricks… if you search Google Images for “party pictures,” you’ll get a lot of candid shots. Great for pictures of NPCs who aren’t supposed to look like movie stars.
Oh, yeah, speaking of photographs: the Library of Congress put its Prints and Photographs Catalog online. For Boston-specific photos, I use this site. Yale’s Beinecke Library also has a very nice digital collection.
