D&D General Adam Bradford, Lauren Urban, Todd Kenrick Leave D&D Beyond

They join lead writer James Haeck, who left a couple of weeks ago. Adam Bradford is the D&D Beyond co-founder, and VP of Tabletop Gaming at its owner, Fandom. Lauren Urban is DDB's Community Manager. Todd Kenrick is the company's Creative Manager.

D&D Beyond, launched in 2017, is currently owned by Fandom (previously known as Wikia), after it acquired the company in 2018 from previous owner Curse, a Twitch subsidiary.

According to Cam Banks, creator of DDB owner Fandom's Cortex, all three received offers elsewhere which they could not turn down.

Roll 1d6

1. 6E!!!!

2. D&D is failing

3. Doesn't matter millions are picking up 5E.

4. D&D movie incoming.

5. WotC being sold.

6. Warlord
How would any of those have anything to do with this?

1. I'm pretty sure D&D Beyond just distributes the books/official resources, not design the books. (No, I'm sure they don't do that.)

2. Or D&D Beyond is failing because of the pandemic. Or, D&D Beyond has a behind-doors issue that people aren't talking about (for a variety of reasons).

3. It does matter. D&D is more popular than ever.

4. Has nothing to do with this.

5. Has absolutely no connection to this.

6. Absolutely no connection to anything.

Pssst. It's a joke.
 




That and while I would not be at all surprised if they were all hired by the same company, coincidences do happen.
I'm in a different industry than you, but when we have multiple people leaving it once, it's usually a reflection of healthy and growing market conditions leading to lots of new openings. The economy is opening back up, and I know my industry is having a lot of new openings right now. (I've applied to three openings in 2021 alone.)

Title? I don't need no stinkin' title.
Something happened there, no sane company would let the three top faces of the company announce they are leaving on the same day. It would make much more sense to stagger it out a bit even if they were trying to save money.
Companies can't control if 3 people happen to give notice on the same day. There's no indication they were "let go".

Well yeah of course they can't I mean they could have asked them not do that or offer financial benefit to not do so. I was more saying if they were let go vs. they decided to quit. If they all three decided to quit on the same day that would highly unusual unless there was something going on and would make me more suspicious.

I want to work in your industry, where there's a cauldron of money to throw at problems. A lot of times, a better offer is one that your current employer simply can't top.

When I leave my current job, which I expect to happen before summer, it'll be for a combo of opportunities my current employer can't compete with, even if they had a cauldron of money (they do not) and a higher salary.

I crit!
So what little I know is that DnDBeyond has been growing REALLY fast. People are working their behinds off. But it seems they still love the job and the place.

but what do I know?
