245 Online ARG Resources Throughout this book, I have referenced various online resources for exploring the rich and fasci- nating world of alternate reality gaming. While some of these resources are specifically related to the games themselves, others are more tangential in that they suggest, either directly or indirectly, the many intriguing directions that alternate reality gaming might be headed. Admittedly, some of these directions are of my own suggestion (that is, they are areas I'd like ARGs to move into); however, most of the Web sites, articles, and forums that I have referenced have a direct connection to the game genre, and are worthy of exploration. Keep in mind that this appendix is not intended to be an absolute listing of all online ARG resources.
