    WotC's Kim Mohan Retires; reviews of THE LOST DUTCHMAN and SEASONS; plus Why Do You DM?

    Dungeons & Dragons News

    • 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 for D&D 3E. He worked on Unearthed Arcana, and the Wilderness Survival Guide for AD&D 1st Edition, and many other products 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.

    There's someone who was working at WotC ever since the TSR days? And she got to retire, rather than taking a 'perpetual Christmas vacation'? That's astounding.

    Congrats to Kim and the others. Very cool to have worked that long in D&D, and quite amazing to make it to retirement in the current WotC corporate culture.

    I was thinking the same thing!

    It wasn't uninterrupted. He quit in 1986 when Gary was forced out, and then rejoined a few years later when New Infinities went bankrupt. Still, it says a lot about how valued his work was that he was allowed back in, given how acrimonious the legal stuff between Gary and Lorraine got.

    Anyone know how many TSR staff were brought over when WotC bought the company?

    What's this about the Dungeon! board game in Dungeon magazine? Do they have it converted for D&D, or is it just an article about the game? (I've loved the game since the 1970s, and now I play the new version with my almost-six-year-old regularly.)
