The Original List & Site about Dr. Who Roleplaying Games

Who-RPG is a mailing list that discusses roleplaying in the universe portrayed by the British science-fiction programme "Doctor Who". We share our experiences of what works and what doesn't, and things we've created to, hopefully, make our games more fun and save us time putting them together.

What's New

Character sheets for FASA Who. (Plus, someone went and made a new series of Doctor Who. There's not much about that here, but try .)

Who-RPG Mailing List

To subscribe to the mailing list and take part in all our discussion about role-playing Dr Who, send an Email to <who-rpg-on @ phoenyx.net>.

Previously, the list was at lists.pipex.net, and at uel.ac.uk. If anyone can provide me a link to the archives (which have moved and been lost), I would be grateful.

There are now several lists for playing (rather than talking about playing) Who-RPG by email, and people wanting to start games are pointed towards Phoenyx. There used to be list specifically for gaming by email (who-game), but it made more sense for people to start up their own list for each game.

Stuff for Role-Playing

Here are some things contributed by members of the Who-RPG list or found on the interenet. Most, but not all, of it is stored at the same site as this page.Unless otherwise mentioned, files are in plain text. If you have written an online supplement for playing in the "Whoniverse" yourself, or know someone who has, please let us know about it.
