This is Our Story

RPGFan originally came to life under the name of LunarNET when Mickey “GhaleonOne” Shannon launched the site in December 1997. To acknowledge our coverage of all RPGs, in March 1999 we became RPGFan. Mickey left RPGFan in 2000, but later re-started LunarNET and is still running it today. There have been countless changes to the look of the site and the people running it over time, but our dedicated staff has always made every effort to stand by our slogan: Extensive RPG Coverage.
