There is a big crossover, with indie RPGs, between playing, designing and publishing. Can we ask questions about publishing RPGs, such as:
- What instructions should I give playtesters?
- What is the best way to pitch Kagematsu?
- What is a "colour profile", as used by a printer?
I'm expecting the answer to be no. However, there's some sense in questions like this: they require expertise; they tend towards a fairly specific answer; and they can inform discussions on play. So I wanted to raise the question explicitly.
