RPGSeek.com 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. Icreated the list on livingdice.com 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 livingdice.com, I moved the Origins 2009 vendor list to the link directory I maintain at RPGSeek.com. It allows for much easier searching, browsing and management. Click below to take you directly to the “Origins 2009 Vendor Website” category.
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 RPGSeek.com 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 RPGSeek.com 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.
