    Thats a very fair point and I'm saddened the creators in question couldn't take the criticism. I imagine sometimes even a fair review might miss a major point of the game, it always amazes me how many different ways people play RPGs. But that doesn't mean a creator can get angry at a reviewer just because they didn't think the game was as good as they do. It does suck to get a bad review, sometimes worse if its a well written one as its harder to dismiss as just trolling! :) While I've seen reviews of my stuff where I've thought 'thats rubbish, they just don't get the point' more often than not I've thought 'I may not agree, and I may not like it, but you certainly have a point'. Essentially, unless the reviewer accuses the creator of something like racism in the game and they feel they can reasonably respond to that point, creators should generally just take the criticism and not respond at all. Definitely the point of critical comments is to provide feedback in order to improve the produ...

    Where is this happening? Frankly I don't use Enworld's reviews all that much if at all. I was under the impression that we were talking about reviews in general, since the article didn't cite any review site specifically. To be perfectly clear: I've never seen this happen in Enworld. The phenomenon I was referring too can be seen very clearly in Steam, the Appstore, Amazon and many other sites, big and small (restaurant apps come to mind as being the least reliable). I'd also add for Ramaster - it need not matter how good your writing is. It was Jasper the one that made the comment about the quality of writing, not me. But since we are on the subject, some instances of bad grammar are indicatory of dishonest reviews, so I get his fear of posting reviews in what he perceives to be shoddy English for fear of being mistaken for a troll. Most non-native English speakers have felt that way at some point.

    I would love to have mentioned it, but I've sadly never managed to play it. (although it absolutely deserves a shout out) It looks amazing, and every Gen Con and Origins I tell myself I'm going to find time to try it, and then every time they have either run out of tickets or I never get the time. One day!!! :) It is hard to get a spot at Gen Con, but they now also run at Origins, Gamehole Con, and Pax South. We had open spots at Origins every day except maybe Saturday (but even Saturday you could probably find a single open slot, just not a spot for a group).

    I feel the same. :) My usual advice is 'write what they asked you to write and turn it in on time' then you'll find plenty of people looking to hire you :) My most annoying thing is when they ask you to write something while you're already writing something for them, and then writing another campaign on top of that and running it. Seriously. I've got three big projects I'm working on! One I have to turn in on Monday but its done but I'm afraid that there's errors that I missed panicked breathing.

    As pdfs are becoming more common and expected, so are full bookmarks and the like and all this does indeed take extra work. It shouldn't take extra work. If the printed book is going to have a table of contents and an index, the page numbers should be generated automatically. The TOC is generated by heading styles. And the index is generated by going through the text and tagging key words. Then you tell the publishing software to generate the index. Having the PDF turn the ToC and Index into hot links is just a checkbox you check when generating the index/ToC. Now, there are other PDF features that would not take extra time, such as "printer friendly" copies of the PDF. But bookmarks? Not really.

    True, accountants are a vital part. But most of the decisions you mention are made by the CEO and/or project manager. True, accountants are a vital part. But most of the decisions you mention are made by the CEO and/or project manager. Most printers can give you the costs per page for any book type and layout determines how many pages you need. So the boss decides how big the book can be, and how much art they can afford and then writers are commissioned to fill that amount of pages. Accountants in a gaming company are often brought in to make sense of everything at the end of the tax year! :) Larger companies may have their own accounts dept, but few accountants make decisions about book size or company strategy as far as I know. They just tell the boss what they might be able to afford for the next book (sometimes with a despairing sigh). To a certain extent, yes. But it's important to remember that printing costs are only a fraction of product cost. Particularly when you have a larger ...
