No More Rouse At WotC
I was genuinely sorry to see yesterday that Scott Rouse is no longer at Wizards of the Coast. Mr. Rouse as D&D Brand Manager was, in my eyes, a goodwill ambassador, often going to bat for gamers against the more corporate ideologies or realities of his company. I can't think of many jobs in gaming that would be harder, but I think he tried his best in difficult circumstances--the GSL debacle and change, the pulling of the pdfs, the edition changeover in general. I definitely believe this is Wizards' loss, and I wish Mr. Rouse the best wherever he lands.
