Alexandria.dk is a public searchable database of Nordic roleplaying conventions and the games (scenarios, LARPS, designer board games) run on these. The site has been under development since 2000 and was publicly announced on the Danish webforum RPGFORUM at March 1, 2003. It was based on the database model for Project R'lyeh, also coded by Peter Brodersen.

As of May 2021 the site contains information for more than 9,400 scenarios, 5,000 persons, and 1,200 conventions (about 600 from Denmark, 500 from Sweden, and 100 from Norway).

Some game authors publish the full game as a digital download at the site. A diskette symbol next to a game title denotes that it has downloadable content. About 1,800 scenarios are available for download.

Furthermore hundreds of magazines, fanzines and club newsletters have been registered with information of more than 1,500 articles.

The database is run by Peter Brodersen and opened in 2003. In 2020 the source code was released as well as an API to download all the content from the site.
