iNDiRPG: Publisher Watch
A list of the best publishers to work for in the Role-Playing Game Industry
iNDiRPG Publisher Watch is a page designed to keep YOU the freelancer informed of which
businesses are reliable and which are not. The businesses here must pass muster before
being listed. Is there a company not listed that should be? First they must pass the eligibility
standards (to the left). Please feel free to e-mail
Jay Libby with the company that you feel
should be listed. He will run it through a freelance pool to see if anyone has had issues. If not,
we will post the name of that company on the list.

The ultimate purpose here is to protect artists and writers who have no way of knowing
sometimes who are the 'good' companies and who are the 'bad' companies. But instead of
creating a 'Black List', we thought it wise to approach it this way.  

*
NOTE: Just because a company is listed here doesn't mean they are currently hiring.
Please inquire with the company you wish to work through.
