Origins 2009 Vendor Website List and Search Engine on is hosting a list of the Origins 2009 vendor’s websites. The list includes vendor name, website link and a brief description of what they sell/do. I RPGSeek Dragon

created the list on last year and it got great feedback.

This year I made some improvements to both its readability and utility. Rather than host the list on, I moved the Origins 2009 vendor list to the link directory I maintain at It allows for much easier searching, browsing and management. Click below to take you directly to the “Origins 2009 Vendor Website” category.

Origins 2009 Vendor and Exhibitor Website Links at

To make searching even easier, I created a Google custom search engine that only indexes this specific list of sites (135 websites. There are 145 vendors, but some do not have websites or are simply hard to find.) and added it to the front page. For those unfamiliar with a Google custom search engine, they are maintained by a human being (in this case, me) and allow extremely precise control over which sites come back in the search results. When you run a search through the Origins vendor search engine, every result came from one of the listed vendor sites. Certainly more efficient than just browsing 135 sites. (Trust me, I visited each site and it takes a LONG time.)

If you have any comments or corrections regarding the list, please let me know and I will get it updated. If you are a vendor I left off the list (Sorry!), please use the submit link button on and I will get you added.

Should you find the engine and link list useful, please submit it to your favorite social bookmarking site.  I normally do not ask for such things, but I think this is probably one of my more useful creations.

    Thanks so much for doing this Trask. Just curious… where did you find the list? I’ve been visiting the (horrible) Origins website every few days and haven’t seen anything.

    It must be noted that Steve Jackson, Chaosium, several others will more than likely be rep by Adventures In Retailing like in past Origins. So if you saw their name don’t be disappointed if you don’t see the company in it’s own booth.
