Keep an eye on the Wizards of the Coast Books site for another interview, and hopefully another article to celebrate the conjunction of the release of Dragon Forge and the launch of 4th Edition, coming up in just 2 days!
This week, Greg Bilsland (one of our able editors) has been joining me at Starbucks around 7:30 A.M. to write. We're serving each other as incentive—I'm more likely to roll out of bed when the alarm goes off at 6:10 if I know Greg will be waiting for me. So Dragon War is coming along...

Speaking of the launch of 4th Edition:
• Thursday we're having a company-wide celebration of the launch with our own little game day. I'll be running a session in the morning and then teaching a lunchtime workshop on DMing 4th Edition.
• Friday we're having a little departmental celebration of a slightly different sort. Between the Thursday event and the Saturday one, just about everyone in R&D will have one or more opportunities to run straightforward D&D adventures. On Thursday, we're giving most of the department a chance to play some D&D that's a little less straightforward. My scenario is the most straightforward, involving two white dragons, demons frozen in ice and spawning undead, heroes frozen in ice whose spirits grant boons, treasure frozen in ice, and a Dudley Doright snowball sweeping across the battlefield, carrying characters off with it (hands, feet, and head sticking out as it goes).
• Saturday, of course, is Worldwide D&D Game Day, and I'll be celebrating (with most of the rest of R&D) at Neumo's in Seattle.
