    WoTC to hire new Director of Brand Marketing for D&D

    This is very interesting from Linked In:

    (Originally posted via twitter by Scott Rouse.)

    EDIT: Couldn't give XP to Kzach... That's a serious list of responsibilities.

    EDIT 2 (after like 12-14 posts) Changed title of post from Brand Manager to Director of Brand Marketing

    "Familiarity with Wizards products a plus particularly Duel Master"

    What does duel master have to do with the D&D brand? Is this a copy paste error from an old job ad?

    With Monte coming on as a developer/imagineer (whether as a consultant or full-time employee) and now a new brand manager position announcement, I think this portents a new edition big time. When? I say the D&D XP show or Gencon 2013. There's still a lot to be done and I hope they adopt an open beta program.

    Ever heard of a location or ban bet?

    It's a forum thing where two people who disagree on something agree to place a wager. Depending on the wager, the winner either gets to change the loser's location in their profile to whatever they want (the loser having to honour the choice and change their own actual profile), or the loser has a self-imposed ban from the forums, both of these for a set amount of time like a week or a month.

    I bet you that we won't see a new edition any time in the next two years. I'll go a location bet for a month but I'm also willing to do a ban bet.

    I'd apply but it's a bit of a commute.

    Assuming that work on a new edition is effectively about to begin, I believe that that 2014 would make sense, since it would be the 40th anniversary of D&D.

    If it's going to get all win mentality around here, why stop there . . . one of those medieval ordeals where you grab a white hot bar of iron and see how far the winner (?) and loser can carry it would be sweet
