Paizo Publishing, LLC® is pleased to announce that Dungeon® magazine, a source for new official Dungeons & Dragons® adventures, maps, and other necessary tools, will celebrate its 20th anniversary with the upcoming September, 2006 issue (#139).
Dungeon was first published in 1986 by TSR, Inc. as a bi-monthly adventure magazine and quickly joined ranks with its sister magazine Dragon® as one of the best hobby gaming magazines on the market. Paizo Publishing acquired the license to publish Dungeon (and Dragon) in 2002 and in 2003 Dungeon switched to a monthly format.
Paizo Publishing is also pleased to announce the promotion of James Jacobs to the position of Editor-in-Chief of Dungeon. Erik Mona, former Editor-in-Chief of Dungeon and current Paizo Publishing Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Dragon, is excited to see where Dungeon goes under the captainship of Jacobs:
"I make no secret of the fact that I think editing Dungeon is the best job in the gaming industry. I can say without reservation that there is one man to whom I am willing to hand over the magazine, and that man is James Jacobs. James has been an invaluable part of the Dungeon team for the past several years, and I am very excited to see where he takes Dungeon in the future. We're all in for a fantastic ride!"
James Jacobs began his interest in the hobby gaming world back in 5th grade when a teacher ran his class through Dungeons & Dragons adventures. He's remained fascinated with the game ever since and over the next two decades had several articles published in Dragon and Dungeon. "I've been writing for Dungeon very nearly from the magazine's debut (my first article appeared in issue #12)," said Jacobs, "so I'm excited and honored to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief."
Jacobs has written and co-written a number of official Dungeons & Dragons books published by Wizards of the Coast, such as Fiend Folio™, Dungeon Master's Guide™ II, and the recently released Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss™. He also helped develop some popular Dungeon mainstays such as the Campaign Workbook and the incredibly popular Adventure Path series.
Jacobs starts his tenure as Editor-in-Chief with the September, 2006 issue. "I've worked with all the previous Editors-in-Chief, and they're all talented people—I just hope I can live up to the quality and imagination that precedes me."
