Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

You've been playing and running RPGs all weekend long, maybe attended the GMs' Conference or the RPG design panel.  You've got Ideas (tm) running around in your head, and you want to know how to get started in the industry.  In this discussion/Q&A panel, you'll get several different perspectives: a full-time developer at a large company, the co-founder of a successful indie company, and a contract project-based writer.  Round out RinCon by getting to pick their brains and hear about their experiences in all the different corners of the industry.
