Welcome to the ORC Wiki

This is the ORC wiki for ORC members, whether they are players or GMs. It is designed to be of use to all members of ORC and elsewhere. While the wiki itself can be Googled and viewed by the rest of the web, only registered ORC Members can edit the pages (and only administrators, like Bill, can modify this page or other "protected" pages). If you're not an ORC member already, visit the ORC website and register.

"New to ORC?" details what you can do to participate as a player or GM. Many of our members have never tried RPGs before they came to ORC Edinburgh!

If you're a visitor to Edinburgh for the first time you may want to check the Edinburgh Gaming page

  • GMs can share their setting information such as background notes, maps, common knowledge, fiction, etc.
  • Players can also use it to store their favourite characters, fictional exploits (no IC chat though, please), backgrounds etc.
  • The site can also be used for other RPG or game-related projects.
  • There's also links to a series of articles that ORC members have written for new GMs, or those preparing for a game.

If you'd like a section for your own campaign, see How to request a namespace on the Wiki. Before using the wiki please make sure you read How to use the ORC Wiki. Consult the MediaWiki User's Guide for information on how to use the wiki software (this will redirect your browser to a site outside ORC though). If you'd like to run a game at ORC, there's some guidelines here: Running a game at ORC
