October is all about them Mists of Ravenloft!

I got two articles this month, one in each magazine: one details (and untangles) the story of Lord Soth, while another is a Heroic-tier adventure focusing on Barovia beyond the walls of Castle Ravenloft. Needless to say, I was very excited to write both, being a longtime RL fan!

I wrote Starhaunt, with a healthy dose of additional content/modifications added by Chris Perkins.

Unless they changed it significantly, it's a pretty long adventure. It's akin to an old-school location-based exploration adventure. Plenty of interesting things to discover, some fun combats, and a story (concerning the nature of the observatory and its inhabitants) that the PCs can piece together as they adventure.

Hope you guys like it.

This just proves how secondary new 4e DDI content has become.

Hey, while most of us agree with you, can't we let the authors like Claudio and Chris have their moment of fame without naysaying Dragon/Dungeon?

There are some talented writers contributing to Dragon/Dungeon, and these guys are among them. Let's not throw out the baby with the bath water.

You're absolutely right, and I'll tell you what, when I do get to see their articles, if I like them, I'll talk about how good I think they are.

Until then, I can't comment on how good/well written their articles are.

I think you missed my point. Your criticism is entirely valid.

I was pointing out that your choice of thread to share your criticism of the magazines in their entirety was in poor taste.

Maybe that would be good feedback for WotC? To release a sampler of material from their magazines periodically so folks could "browse" them like we used to at our FLGSs? I'd second that motion without hesitation!

!!!

I've only been re-upping for the Eye on DS and Eberron articles, but this is certainly validating that choice! I'm diggin' it!

Now if only they'd retroactively compile previous issues... Ah well, can't really complain, considering they've opted to change to this way! /Much/ better than downloading individual articles, let me tell you!

Cool to see Dragon go up around mid-month. I was fearful that both mags wouldn't go live until late in the month.

I wouldn't be surprised if Dungeon doesn't go live until the end of the month, given that Dungeon often involves more layout work, illustrations, etc. But maybe we'll see it sooner than Halloween.

If WotC can establish an "every two weeks" plan for the mags (one at mid-month and one at the end of the month), I expect they'll garner a lot of support for this production schedule. Plus, having the mags compiled is very cool. Easy one-time download for a given mag all at once.

While it was always fun to see what article might suddenly become available on a given day, it's pretty darn awesome to see a whole mag go live at once. Tons of stuff to read and digest. I'm sure it'll keep me busy for a while and seeing Dungeon not go live for a couple weeks won't be that big of a deal.

Kudos, Wizards.

We got a indication that they were planning a two-stage release in this month's In the Works column:
...we'll be releasing subscription content in two collected issues (one for Dragon earlier in the month, one for Dungeon later in the month).
so I think your estimate of a near-end-of-month release for Dungeon is spot on.

And as promised, after a quick look over the "magazine", all 34 pages worth, my initial feeling was "meh".

I'll be honest, I like that I have Lord Soth's stats for 4E now (probably my favorite article of the whole thing by the way, very nice job Claudio!), but was only "meh" for the rest.

Maybe the Dungeon issue will have better content (and more than 34 pages).
Thank you. I went through a sh**load of research for it.

But the mechanical parts of that article were the great work of WotC's developers. When I wrote the article (back in... January, I think?), it was supposed to be a History Check. But as the October issue coalesced, they already had a HC ready (Strahd & Van Richten), so mine expanded to include Soth's stats.

You are quite welcome, and thank you for 4e'ing Lord Soth. Too bad we never got any other 4e Dragonlance!
