This project was originally inspired by a paper guide from the fan club called Transylvanian University. In the "old days", this is how knowledge was transferred, other than at cons and by phone calls and letters. Now there isn't a single one of us who doesn't have the Internet as a large part of our daily life.

Rocky, too, has changed. We no longer have to deal with deteriorating physical film prints, as digital copies (DCPs) are now available. If you know the right tartan for Brad's cummerbund, it can be ordered online the same way you used to call up for a pizza. Casts can be found on Facebook, and news and information travels almost instantaneously, and pretty much any information you want, regardless of accuracy, can be found in a wiki of some sort.

And that's what the Sourcebook now is, a wiki where anyone can add or edit articles. Yes, this means YOU!

Here's the list of the original articles and their author here with the disclaimer that the original text are their words; there's the probability that a revision has someone else's words.

This list is NOT intended to be a table of contents, though all the articles that were originally in the Sourcebook are linked here.

The press/publicity kit will be done at a later date.

James Norman shall keep editorship of this wiki until September 27, 2015 (the day after the 40th anniversary) where it will be turned over to someone else.
