Although he is better known for other things such as being one of the main designers behind 3E and his previous work for TSR and ICE, Monte Cook also has a "shady" past as a member of the Piazza
. ;) I remember being very happy when the designer of Glantri: Kingdom of Magic signed up to the forum to talk about Mystara with us. G:KoM was perhaps not the best recieved Mystara product, but that had more to do with excecutive decisions than with what Monte did with the assignment given to him.

Another excellent RPG designer on the 5E design team
, Robert J Schwalb, also has a connection to the community. He has made a long list of classic D&D monster conversions
to 3E which all appear on the Vaults of Pandius
I see alot of optimism concerting 5E even on old school gamer discussion boards. Having these two excellent designers on the team definately cannot hurt! :)
It pays to belong to the Piazza.ReplyDelete
