    20. http://www.maryrose.org/ - the excavation of a Tudor warship
    21. http://www.hillsdale.edu/dept/History/War/index.htm - period documents from military history

    These will be more valuable to players of modern games, but can be applied to other genres with a bit more work:

    For people who want to make the Thieves' Guild a 'family' business:

    For people who want to 'illuminate' the various conspiracies in their world:

    -Cherokee to English dictionary
    "I asked Dave to please send me his rules additions, for I thought a whole new system should be developed. A few weeks after his visit I received 18 or so handwritten pages of rules and notes pertaining to his campaign, and I immediately began work on a brand new manuscript. "Greyhawk" campaign started Śthe first D&D campaign! About three weeks later, I had some 100 typewritten pages, and we began serious play-testing in Lake Geneva, while copies were sent to the Twin Cities and to several other groups for comment. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS had been born."

    Thanks but no serious news sites... Imagine if everyone starts putting up cnn.com, nytimes.com, guardian.co.uk and so on.
