      I don't like my Pathfinder and D&D in the same jar...

      That's for goobers.

      Well, he got D&D in his Pathfinder before he got Pathfinder in his D&D -- when he started at Paizo they were publishing Dragon Magazine for D&D 3.5. Pathfinder didn't even exist!

      I am guessing PF is the crunchy peanut butter and 5E is smooth.

      Life is more of a scribble using multiple different colored crayons, in my experience.

      Will we see an agreement between WotC and Paizo about the SRD and will Warlock, Blood Hunter and Dragonborn in PF and D&D with all no-core Pathfinder classes and races (inquisitor, alchemist, oracle, witch, gunslinger...)?

      Will we see Critical Role with classes by Dreamscarred Press?

      In my experience, Life is a series of hyperconvergent timelines that if graphed spell out the words "Jeremy Bearimy" in cursive.

      Left in 2017. So he was most likely not responsible for the dumpster fire Pathfinder 2e is shaping up to be. That's a relief.

      Dumpster fire? Hyperbole much?

      more white guys ...

      At least they have a female designer on staff. Would have like to see more representation from other ethnic groups, but I get the "pool" is probably pretty small?

      ...yeah, he's a white guy.

      On the other hand, he identifies as being in the LGBT community so it's not like he isn't bringing some diversity as well as a wealth of experience in the industry to the table.

      Congratulations to Wes!
      While I'm not all that familiar with the past Dragon or Dungeon magazines, I've liked his work with Paizo.

      Here's hoping we'll see more horror in D&D going forward

      Congratulations!

      Glad to see that the D&D team is continuing to add staff (albeit slowly). That's a good sign for the game.
