Out of Topic: TSR is hiring!!!

Post by giulio »

I know that this is out of topic, but I think that it is interesting:

Have you seen this job position?

It looks like that Hasbro is hiring the Grand Master of all Dungeon Masters :)

It's not off topic. Far from it.

Fascinating; although I perked up when I read, "Knowledge of analog or digital role-playing games preferred".

Analog...wha?

Is that what they're calling pencil-and-paper games these days? Oh well....

I notice that no salary range is posted.

It would be cool, but this position is for a marketing/sales whiz, not a creative director or anything like that (where people like us would flourish). I also notice that the successful applicant has 3 months to master everything, which I read as, "You'd better be raking in the revenue big time, or else."

This would be a very, very stressful job.

True, but this is also THE job position of the person who choose wich Product Line should be pushed or left aside.
This is the person who can produce a huge excel file and say to Hasbro CEO "mmm... I think we should re-launch Mystara...."

I'd like to spam whomever gets hired with "BRING ALL THE OLD CAMPAIGN WORLDS BAAACK PLEEEASE."

And then I'd want him to re-spellplague the realms by dropping Maztica out of the sky on top of Returned Abeir :twisted:

My heart made a little jump when I first read the title of the thread. For a short moment I was hoping for some really surprising and interesting news.
