    You need to read my post more carefully. I didn't say she was not a shareholder in both. But she certainly was not the only shareholder in Sovereign Press originally. Larry Elmore had an interest as did a few others as I recall.

    Being the "head" of both companies is not the same as owning 100% of the shares in each outright. I believe she is the sole shareholder in MWP and was not the sole shareholder in Sov Press. It is possible that might explain a few things with the license renewal (and it might not, too).

    I don't think so. The current license is between MWP and WotC and doesn't involve Sovereign Press on the books, so to speak.

    Cheers,

    To answer with a non-answer: Morrus's conclusion is spot-on. That's all that should be said by any party involved in the negotiation at this point.

    Here I was going to start a thread about WOTC's statements regarding ending the licenses for both Dragon and Dragonlance vs. statements released by both Erik Mona and Margaret Weiss. However, I see that I was beaten to it.

    Minor pendantic note: Margaret's last name has only one S in it.

    No, thank you. And, in an effort to apply the rules universally, I should note that I spelled "pedantic" incorrectly in my earlier message. I claim clumsy fingers.
