About us

Writeups.org is an encyclopaedia of characters in genre fiction — super-hero comic books, video games, action movies, etc.

It offers illustrated, researched profiles. These also include technical data for role-players.

If you need a robust understanding of a character’s abilities, personality, history, etc. this is *the* place to be.

Writeups.org was born in 1998 as a statistics archive for a tabletop role-playing game community.

We have since worked to make our profiles accessible by a broader variety of readers.

You can consider it an alternative to wikis.

Our strengths come from our role-playing background. This means an emphasis on characterisation, plus tools allowing us to model and understand the super-powers, skills and knacks of those characters.

If you want to know more about writeups.org, please explore our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.

If you want to join the community — which is a nice, polite and constructive place — we are on Groups.io.
