Just Like the White Rabbit ...D&D Insider Article
Who is Sometimes Very, Very Late
by Bill Slavicsek

I’m late! I’m late! Sorry about that. Things have been hectic and extremely busy around here, so it took me a little bit longer to get around to writing this month’s column. Instead of teasing you with the various things I’ve been busy with these past few weeks that I can’t really talk about yet, let’s get right to the stuff I can fill you in on. This month, in addition to regaling you with our newest product releases, I want to tell you about the Castle Ravenloft board game that I just got my hands on, and then I want to give you a sneak peek at the upcoming Dark Sun Creature Catalog in case you want to throw a new monster or two into your next game session. I’m sure I’ll let something else interesting slip through as the column unfolds. Let’s get to it!

    In Case You Don't Know Him

    Bill Slavicsek's gaming life was forever changed when he discovered Dungeons & Dragons in 1976. He became a gaming professional in 1986 when he was hired by West End Games as an editor. He quickly added developer, designer, and creative manager to his resume, and his work helped shape the Paranoia, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and Torg roleplaying games. He even found some time during that period to do freelance work for D&D 1st Edition. In 1993, Bill joined the staff of TSR, Inc. as a designer/editor. He worked on a bunch of 2nd Edition material, including products for Core D&D, Dark Sun, Ravenloft, and Planescape. In 1997, he was part of the TSR crowd that moved to Seattle to join Wizards of the Coast, and in that year he was promoted to R&D Director for D&D. In that position, Bill oversaw the creation of both the 3rd Edition and 4th Edition of the D&D Roleplaying Game. He was one of the driving forces behind the D&D Insider project, and he continues to oversee and lead the creative strategy and effort for Dungeons & Dragons.

    Bill's enormous list of credits includes Alternity, d20 Modern, d20 Star Wars, Pokemon Jr., Eberron Campaign Setting, the D&D For Dummies books, and his monthly Ampersand (&) column for Dragon Magazine.
