Now I love a good conspiracy theory as much as the next guy but Chris' comments from Dragon 427 has left me wondering. He mentions about what form(s) should Dragon and Dungeon take. This is aimed at either printed, digital, or both. If they decide to go with just printed then they could quietly decide to end DDI. See, I think 4E fans are a thorn in the side for WotC's plans for D&D Next and the so called unification of the fan base (cough, cough Paizo). I don't think they want 4E hold outs like there were 3E hold outs with Paizo. Plus, DDI tools is all we have left as there's no Paizo for us to lifeline to.
Plus- Chris asked how much D&D content should the magazines publish. That is a head scratcher because what else would Dragon and Dungeon publish? I'm thinking they might go to a printed format and fatten out the magazines with MMO, board games, G.I. Joe, Legos and other such stuff.
*disclaimer- now Chris has been grumpy a bit lately. So- I'm not grumbling about any written material that I have slaved away on (ugh- as if I would bother trying to get into the biz of RPGs) and nurturing feelings of betrayal at the hands of WotC by the dealings of going dark, breaking bad, and fading to black.
