We wish them well on their future endeavors."
"We at Paizo are very proud of the work we've put into Dragon and Dungeon during the past five years," says Erik Mona, Paizo's Publisher and Editor in Chief of Dragon. "While we'll all miss working on these venerable magazines, our talented editorial and art staff as well as our phenomenal team of freelance contributors will continue to produce high-quality, exciting, new OGL releases that are aimed at supporting our existing customers and beyond. We look forward to sharing useful and provocative new products that support our favorite hobby."
