The As If Collective is a network of roleplayers, gamers, GMs, game designers, artists and neophiles interested in exploring and contributing to experimental applications of narrative engineering.
Every month I do 2-4 Releases: each is a minigame, a subsystem, an adventure, a table/chart, a form/sheet, or a web-based tool which will be of interest to Roleplayers, Storygamers and Interactive Fictioneers. As a member of the Collective, you get early access to all of these works in both draft and final form, with the added knowledge that you helped make them happen.
Draconic is a new online magazine dedicated to the roleplaying OSR (Old School Renaissance) and the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons, featuring articles by Venger Satanis and other regular contributors. The site also supports photogalleries, Youtube videos and MP3 audio uploads for podcasts. Publisher Korth'thalis wanted a site that was well organized, easy to administer, and looked bad-ass. With Drupal 7 and a custom theme, we delivered.
The Proximity Kitchensystem, designed and marketed by Pete Walker, reduces or eliminates the vast majority of unnecessary options, elements and configurations currently found in both domestic and imported mass-manufactured kitchen product lines. The Proximity Kitchen website includes Pete Walker's blog, historical data, photogalleries, and purchasing information for Proximity customers. Design by crispelements.
Another convert in our drive to rebuild all the world's blogs as Drupal-based websites, The Angry Greek - formerly angrygreekdyke.blogspot.com - is a no-holds-barred attack on celebrities and the arbitrary idiocy of our insane culture. It's cheeky, smutty, irreverent, and definitely not safe for work. But it's awfully funny. And now it's Drupal!
The site also features original art and a luscious illustrated mascot courtesy of Chella Faithe Design. Check it out!
Exit Consulting Group provides services for individuals considering exit strategies for their businesses. Their new website, designed by Paul Chamberlain of CerebralItch, uses our AXIS CMS system to allow quick and easy updates of content and marketing information.

The new site includes an expanded Community section divided into 5 creative professions (artists, designers, filmmakers, models and writers), as well as a Usergroups and dediacted Forums.

One of the most popular gossip blogs for the pre-teen set, oceanUP brings you all the latest news on Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and other stars from hit shows on Disney, Nickelodeon and elsewhere. Beginning life as a Wordpress blog, then transitioning to Moveable Type, oceanUP recently decided to step up to an industrial-strength Drupal installation.
A complex and evolving magazine with a dedicated community site, Asiance Magazine is a good example of a highly customized Drupal theme. In migrating the site from Drupal 4 to Drupal 5, we faced a number of challenges due to lack of support for discontinued modules. Many of the site's features required custom-coding to retain compatibility with legacy data structures. Design and Flash programming by Jondela Design.
A sister site of ImNotObsessed.com, FitCeleb features health-related stories, celebrity news, exercise tips and nutritional advice to help you live a healthy lifestyle. FitCeleb began as a WordPress site, but they have joined the growing list of ex-WP sites now using Drupal for their content management needs.
Back when it was still called "The Bastardly", As If Productions handled MoeJackson's conversion from WordPress to Drupal, the platform they remain with today. This popular celebrity gossip blog was once listed by MAXIM among the best examples of "pervarazzi" websites. Make no mistake: Moe and Jackson do not idolize their celebrities; they prefer them skewered. Or naked. Or skewered, naked.
FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS including security and scalability under heavy loads, more and more WordPress users these days are interested in migrating (or "converting") their sites over to the more powerful Drupal CMS. We applaud this decision, and we're here to help.

(2) Migrating the Data, and
(3) Adding/Tweaking the desired Functionality.
