Quote from: John Burdick on December 01, 2005, 12:05:09 PMI wish books constructed by farming out chapters to various writers would identify which chapters were done by which writers.
Quote from: Ron Edwards on December 01, 2005, 12:32:11 PMHistorical point: the first person to advocate this idea, Joshua, was John Wick, 2001-2002. Since he did so, and since he did sell a mighty truckload of Orkworld through personality-recognition promotion, the majority of independent PRGs have sported their authors' names on the covers.
QuoteHistorical detail: Sorcerer's book cover was formatted before he made this point, although my name is on the spine. If the timing had been different, the name would have been on the front.

Quote from: John Burdick on December 01, 2005, 12:05:09 PMI wish books constructed by farming out chapters to various writers would identify which chapters were done by which writers. White Wolf does things by chapters, and the discussions on rpg.net often reveal who the authors were. Based on that I've formed opinions on their work. I bought Blue Rose in part because of knowing John Snead's work for White Wolf and Steve Kenson's reputation for hacking d20.
