Keep meta sections short

Just a bit of advice for rpg publishers: when you are writing sections like "What is Roleplaying?", keep it short. If it goes over four or five paragraphs, most people aren't going to read it. In any case, if you don't have Dungeons and Dragaons on the cover of your game, 99% of the people buying and reading it have already played D&D and know what roleplaying is.

agreed. better yet, leave it out entirely. i hate those sections. deeply, deeply unnecessary. it's like having the first track of a CD being a spoken word essay about the definition of a CD

Kids nowadays might not know what a CD is? You must cater to the lowest common denominator!
