The TORn Mathom-house will provide a central site to orient newcomers and visitors to, serve as an official source for those researching or writing about TORn, website communities or topics related to content on TORn, and provide a standard and easy way for storing and retrieving past, present and future website content.

The TORn Mathom-house will also provide discretionary support to TORn related entities or endeavors, some with their own Mission Statements.
