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 January 2022 the site contains information for more than 11,000 scenarios, 6,000 persons, and 1,500 conventions (including 700 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 1,900 scenarios are available for download.
Furthermore, hundreds of magazines, fanzines and club newsletters have been registered with information of more than 4,000 articles. More than 100 issues of magazines have been put online for download as well.
The database is run by Peter Brodersen and opened in 2003. In 2020 the source code as well as an API to download all the content from the site was released.
