My Vision

I want the Year of Living Free to preserve and promote open role-playing games in all their forms.


One of the many advantages of open games is that they can always be shared - whether their original designers have lost interest or even given up role-playing. By collecting games here, we have a convenient place to store lost games.

Free Stuff

Most open games are free, so this wiki doubles as a collection of two hundred free games.


Many open games have been released, but few are supported by their own forums, mailing lists and wikis. Often, these resources go unused after the game has lost its lustre. Because the Year of Living Free isn't based on any one game, it should survive. As such, it makes a great wiki and forum for the games too small to have their own community.
