    Kim Mohan & Others Retire from WotC

    Kim Mohan retired yesterday from WotC. He's been with TSR (and then WotC) since 1979! Amongst his jobs at the company, he's been Editor-in-Chief of DRAGON Magazine, and Lead Editor, then managing Editor D&D 3E. He worked on Unearthed Arcana, and the Wilderness Survival Guide for AD&D 1st Edition, and many other product over the years since. I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I said he is almost as much part of D&D's blood as Gygax and Arneson are.

    Also retiring yesterday was Leeds Chamberlain, Snr. Mgr. Strategic Operations at WotC; and Angie Lokotz, graphic designer who worked on Planescape.

    The 7 remaining TSR folks (now only 5) were: Angie Lokotz, Bruce R Cordell, Steven Winter, Mark Painter, Dawn Murin and Kim Mohan. So it's just Bruce R Cordell, Steven Winter, Mark Painter, and Dawn Murin now.

    Wow, that's really the end of an era.

    Good on him for lasting so long.

    I met Kim 10 years ago when interviewing for an editing job at WotC. In addition to being a really nice guy, it was very obvious how much he loved D&D. Best to him in his retirement.

    Wow, I've been seeing Kim's name in the books since I started playing the game. It really won't be the same without him there.

    Congrats to Kim! Amazing to have spent that long with D&D -- he's truly lucky.

    I was lucky enough to sit down with Kim during last GenCon to hammer out stuff in two of my Dragon articles ("Lord Soth" and "Winning Races: Bladelings"). His contributions to D&D can't be overstated.

    Good luck to him, Angie and Leeds on their future endeavours!
