    After a bit of travelling and pondering and general reinventing, I took on a new challenge: as of last Monday, I am the new software development manager at the Dungeons & Dragons Digital studio at Wizards of the Coast.

     

    This is going to be fun. For serious Smiley

    AWESOME!!!

     

    Now if you can only get them to re-release the original Dragonlance modules I will be a happy camper.

     

    D&D is a great game to teach the concepts of game systems and I would reccommend any game programmer to whet their whistle with it first.  I have been meaning to get back into it, but unfortunately I have become an old geek with no old geek friends.

    Wow! is what I could said. Smiley

     

    D&D and MtG are my most favourite games for a long time. I must say this must be a very amazing job.

     

    Congratulations!

    I played Dungeons and Dragons when I was young. I don't like the look of the newer products and marketing, it has a very immature, pulp feel to it.

    To quote Monty Python's Life of Brian "You lucky, lucky b*stard!"

     

    Congratulations.

    Ha ha! I like that -- to get this job you have to pass a 2 D20 test of you 'Software Management' attribute. Big Smile

    Perhaps Paolo had the 'Badge of Microsoft' which gave +5 to his 'Software Management' attribute?

    The interview(s) was NOT like a RPG session, but I'm *forced* to play as part of my job. Woe me...

     

    I need to create a character. Any suggestions?
