He officially starts on March 15th, so they go to James still for now while Mike learns the ropes.
 
Mike is an amazing designer. He has some great stuff over on his own website, like 5e versions of Street Fighter 2 characters and Simon Belmont from Castlevania, among others. Congratulations, Mike!

I'm stoked to be a part of the team (!!!) and there is definitely a bunch of fun free stuff on my website although it should be noted that I have my own in-house style guides that are not identical to EN5ider's. While I encourage everyone to enjoy the Warhammer 40k D&D 5E Hack, Street Fighter PDF, the random builds, or whatever else tickles you, my freebie blog posts are not going to mimic the grammar rules of standard 5E mechanics as accurately as EN5ider does because it is all content I don't get any scratch for (just things I want to exist and likely use in my house games).

That said the current 5E series is D&D 5E in Ancient Greece (converting the excellent New Argonauts book by Sean K. Reynolds) and it will continue posting every week (at this point it's just one monster on Sundays; the vast bulk of the conversion is in post #1). Although I'm itching to start up a Killer Instinct or Mortal Kombat series, I'm holding off until I've got a handle on the Editor gig. :)
