Its many adventures range from fantasy quests, to dungeon crawls, to sci-fi and modern adventures, as well as a few that defy easy categorization. This wiki collects and records information about the history of the game, from its creation by Donald Brown and expansion by John Nelson and Tom Zuchowski, through the growing list of collaborators and adventure authors over many years, to the various system ports and newsletters.
