As reported in Ampersand, there are some product changes on the way.
- The D&D minis line is now dropped.
- Three books have been removed from the product schedule, with the Shadow book now coming later in the year.
- There will be no monthly compendium of Dragon and Dungeon articles, just the same single articles to download when they are ready.
The anti-WotC and anti-D&D4 crowds will find nothing but doom and gloom in this of course. But even as someone that enjoys D&D4 I find this a bit disheartening. I like minis. I have no ability what soever to paint metal ones so pre-painted plastic was fantastic for me. The loss of books is a sign of other issues, even I had no real plans to buy those particular books.
As for Dragon, while I understand how they want to keep the name I miss the Dragon mag of old. Not just the days when Paizo was publishing but the days when it was a multi-game magazine. But in a day and age when print periodicals have trouble staying afloat, let alone profitable, then I understand the business decisions.
Anyway here are some other places it is getting talked about. The reactions vary.
