programmers, artists (depending on the genre, I guess 3D modellers and concept artists at least ...), game designers, musicians.
You can develop it in the Microsoft world or open source world, either way you can achieve portability for many operating systems. The MS tools are a bit more expensive (Express isn't for commercial use), while open source tools are free (g++, code blocks, ...).
Having an office helps, because people concentrate on development, if they work at home, they tend to be slower ...
Tip: Having the main plot outlined in a document with decent formating and having some quality concept art helps attract the investors ;)

If you're referring to Visual Studio Express Edition, it's FREE for commercial use.
From the Visual Studio Express Edition FAQ:
Yes, there are no licensing restrictions for applications built using Visual Studio Express Editions.

I found that Fps tend to be more attractive than more rpg.
Since for some reason... it takes time to build a strong rpg character, from that you can make the user play the game longer..... but the thing is.... rpg games will soon get bored easily. For example Runescape....... I bet a lot of people have heard of it..... When I was in primary school I loved to play runescape.... but the thing is no matter how long I play....... I still can't get to a really high rank.... and for a rpg game... it doesn't take a lot of skill. Just time. For fps games you need skills, so it means it doesnt matter how long you play it. but it matters on your skill. Such as listening to enemies' foot step and etc etc etc..... So i prefer you to make a fps more than a rpg.
And there are are competitors for a rpg game than fps games...
since WoW 's release....And to make a profit from rpg games is harder than fps games.
Just my personal comments.... gd luck on your game developing.....
btw does your company have a site on-line?
