NORCO Info & Resources

A catch-all list of resources/information/trivia/literature/inspiration/etc related to the game NORCO. Not all resources are directly referenced in the game, but may serve as a springboard into further research on the game's themes. This page will be updated as time allows.

TODO: general cleanup; add links to resources; add "Ecology" section; add additional resources to "Fenceline" & "Christian Mysticism" sections.

The original resource thread lives here. Still pulling stuff from it.
