"We've got some exciting new ventures coming down the pike and we look to announce some of them at Gen Con Indy. This shift of some of my daily responsibilities to Keith Strohm will enable me to focus my energies on the development of new business opportunities that will ultimately strengthen Paizo and contribute to the gaming industry."
