Roster Master for Dragonfly provides a method to integrate your EverQuest II Guild Roster into your Dragonfly CMS site. It works by "Web-Scraping" Sony's site, parsing the data, and storing it in a local database.

Roster Master for Dragonfly is a port of the Roster Master module originally written by Rex "SaintPeter" Schrader. Significant enhancements and exclusive features have been made for the Dragonfly CMS version, as well as to accomodate changes in Everquest II and the site.
