The Playmakers (collection of interviews)


The Playmakers is a collection of interviews and a unique look at some of the key people who help shape the public play of roleplaying games: Convention organisers, Games on Demand co-ordinators, rpg group leaders, streamers and more are included in these 160 pages. Conducted through late 2018 and 2019, these interviews delve into not only who they are and what they do, but also what it takes, why they do it and what they need to do their jobs even better.

If you have an interest in peeking behind the curtain into what goes into an rpg convention or have ever had an interest in getting involved in supporting others in playing roleplaying, then the Playmakers is for you.

The full list of interviewees is included in the preview. The Playmakers was funded through Zinequest and is being made publically available for the first time here.

There isn't a preview, at least as of this writing. Could you upload one? I'd love to check out the list of interview subjects.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
