Subject: Entire Metagame Archive Online
Security: Public
Under four different Editors and three organizations, Metagame was the magazine of the Society for Interactive Literature (SIL), Interactive Literature Foundation (ILF), and Live Action Roleplayers Association (LARPA) from 1988 to 1999.

I have completed scanning of a complete Run of the primary SIL/ILF/LARPA numbers with the exception of Metagame vol. 1, no. 3.

After the Board of Directors of the SIL changed the name of the organization to ILF several of the Directors resigned at a subsequent meeting, and began publishing Metagame in Fall 1991 in the Newsletter format, running several issues with identical numbers. I don't have all these issues, but would be happy to post/correct them if copies exist.

The PDF Files are not OCR, and I have not been able to automate OCR processing of them with any success. I would welcome OCR contributions.

I have made the files available as Google Docs and will begin adding information to make it easy to find them, however this web page serves as a central discovery point for the publicly available files.

I have OCR capabilities and would be happy to run these PDFs through. I'm guessing you'd like searchable PDFs?

I think that would be great! I'd love for the entire text to be searchable and indexed so that all this old information would be available to people through normal search. I just could not get my crappy OCR to make much of them.

I didn't forget about this. But there is something fundamentally broken about these PDFs or their source scans that makes every program I've thrown at it bork out.

Should I ask about access to the sources?
