Copyright was started in 1998 by Thorson, Anaxagoras, and wjb (aka the original RavenGames team). All copyright on existing content was officially transferred from Thorson to RambOrc in 2000, who rebuilt the website and expanded the content and features over the next few years with the help of a new group including Col.J.P., Ichor, sneax, and EuT (aka the classic RavenGames team). In 2004, RambOrc sold the domain and a non-transferable permission to continue displaying the existing content as long as the domain/website doesn’t change ownership again, but the copyright itself was not relinquished.
