I just replied to the Wizards of the Coast #DDI issue 402 editorial and wanted to share my comments publicly on why I believe Dragon “magazine” content should remain player/general audience specific and Dungeon “magazine” content should remain dungeonmaster focused.
Here you go – please discuss amongst yourselves:
I vote for “Stay the Course”.
Dragon content and Dungeon content belong in separate silos.
When you go into a department store to find a shirt, you go first into the Men’s Department and then you go into the Shirt section. You might browse the Pants while you’re there but you don’t even want to waste your time with Women’s attire or worse – perfume!
There is true value in keeping these sections separated into logical area – DM Only material (adventures, especially) and Player/General D&D Community features.
