Quote from: Ron Edwards on December 11, 2006, 06:12:43 PMHi Chris,I'm reading with interest and actually racking up quite a few questions, but was intending to respond after it was all done.For me, the transition between your post 2 and 3 skipped quickly through some decisions that I'm interested in. Apparently, you chose to remain with self-publishing, although a number of years had gone by since you'd discovered the (laughable) financial scheme offered by RPG publishers. At this point, did you have any dialogues with anyone about "publishing" vs. "being published?" Did you investigate how other games had been published and by whom?Speaking only of this particular phase (after the two years in the gaming club and after the "new girl on the scene's" encouragement), what steps did you take, if any, to learn about how role-playing games were published?Best, Ron

I also recall running into Multiverser at least once or twice back in High School, so that was at least six years ago. I think the Forge has done a lot to encourage folks to enter the field who may have been content to play with their pals otherwise, but it looks like there were several folks around at that time. Know the feeling though- I had just gotten my first game off to the printers after six years of work when I found the Forge, and man what time and money that would have saved...Awesome thread though, always good to see a start-to-finish recap on a title ^_^ Also kinda funny in that I went through a LOT of the same (including the name change, though thankfully it was caught before print and C&D's were involved). Look forward to seeing the rest.
