I was fortunate enough to head out there and while I was there I met up with famed author R.A. Salvatore (who was on the final leg of his book tour). He was a busy man with two panels, and a signing all in the same day he was heading home!
He agreed to sit down with me and answer some questions I gathered from our very own community. Here is the interview:
Mike – Bob let me start by saying “Thank You” for taking this time to answer some questions from our Community. But I have ask, how is your con experience?
RA – I’ve only been here a little while, but it’s pretty wild. I think this...

When all else fails, go with what you know
I was set. I had my copy of Gamma World (that I used my skillz to acquire super early); just after PAX I would start up my game. I would set it in an apocalyptic Disneyland and it would be AWESOME. Everyone would want to have a guest spot in my game. What could go wrong?
I reached out to some friends that had varied experience in D&D. One player had been playing for years, others had just started, and one had never played at all.
We sat around my kitchen table and I read some things about Gamma World and they began to roll some characters. During the creation I helped those along who needed it. I explained some things about...

"When all else fails, go with what you know"
A little while after getting hired on here at WotC I walked over to Trevor's desk and he was busy rolling up a character.
Mike: What you doing?
Trevor: Rolling up a new Gamma World character, my character died again.
Mike: Oh ____! I've heard about that game! I want in.
Trevor: I'll see what I can do.
I waited... and waited... then one day, my email chimes and I see a meeting invite
Gamma World Resumes! 12:00pm - 2:00pm
I sat there in total enjoyment. I was SO READY for Gamma World. Turns out, I was so NOT READY for Gamma World. Greg Bilsland had a great blog post about the game I was in. Even if due to...

I SWEAR I'll get to Gamma World soon! I promise!
I grew up just outside of Los Angeles. Everywhere was about a 1/2 hour from where I was. Except Disneyland. Even though I was just a few cities away, it always felt like a lifetime to get there.
Both my parents worked a lot and so when we got to go to Disneyland, it was always a huge deal. We'd get there right when it opened, and wouldn't leave until it was closed. Back in the 80's the park closed at 2am on some weeknights. My parents tried for a family trip to Disneyland about once every year, maybe that's why it always felt like it took forever to get there.
Flash Forward to my teenage years. As I got older I realized things were not as far as they seem. I soon learned that Disneyland was "just over the hill" or "just down Harbor" & this...

"My past, made me who I am today."
A Little Background about Me:
Or: How my wife got me the job at Wizards of the Coast
Up until around 2008 I was familiar enough with D&D to be able to fake my way through an improv scene, but if you sat me down to play it, I'd have a little trouble at 1st, but then would be able to catch up rather quickly. I had plenty of friends that were playing 3.5, and had seen plenty of parodies, spoofs, and other online sketches about D&D. Pretty sure I had the gist of it.
My (then girlfriend, now...

You watch your target with the eyes of a hawk. You hide out in the shadows and take out your enemies with a single attack. When the crowd looks around to see who attacked you're gone. You are an assassin.
This Wednesday DDi subscribers get a preview of the Assassin class that's been revamped for Essentials.
This is a MONSTEROUS article. You've got everything from getting your basic stats, all the way to your Epic Tier stats. This really is everything you wanted to know about how to be an Assassin.
The hired killer is one of the most feared enemies to walk the streets of any society. Yet while any mercenary can perform a paid killing in a dark alley, only the executioner assassin can make it mean something. For an executioner, the act of killing isn’t as important as the message it sends,...
