I am Mongoose, and so can you!


Making Riches and Profit From Roleplaying Games!

I am Mongoose, and so can you is an in-depth look at how anyone can make a full-time living from the roleplaying games industry.  Whether you are looking to find a career creating and selling roleplaying games, or are determined to start your own business, this book shows you how.

You will be taken through facts and figures showing, chapter and verse,  how to go about gathering the resources needed to create your own roleplaying games, what to do once you have a book ready to sell, and how much money you are likely to make over the course of your first year in business.

This book covers several different scenarios, allowing you to pick the one most suited to you, and your current situation.  Even in today's credit crunch climate, you will be shown how you can make a very viable living from roleplaying games alone.

Written by Matthew Sprange, owner of one of the most successful roleplaying companies around (Mongoose Publishing), I am Mongoose, and so can you will show you all the secrets you need to begin.

Think of this book as the equivalent of spending an hour or two with the boss of a successful roleplaying publisher, asking them just how you can make a successful living doing the same thing!

This is an exceptionally interesting and well considered book. If you have ANY inkling of going into the complex world of RPG business then this is mandatory reading. Whether you are going to establish your own TSR like behemoth of a company or just th [...]

The book really needs to be updated. It's nearly a decade old now and the information of pdf vs hardcopy has to be out of date. Still it is a good read even if the second half comes off as an advertisement for Mongoose's Flaming Cobra publication partn [...]

This ebook is pretty good, but I don't think it's as spectacular as other reviewers, and I'm finding myself disapointed that I paid $30 for it. I found that it left many of my questions unanswered. I am interested more in having another company [...]

To be honest, when I purchased, "I am Mongoose, and so can you!" I was highly skeptical about it’s relevance and accuracy. I read over it a few times, and was impressed with the quality of information, but still wasn't sure it was going to [...]

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.
