Monte Cook, author of some of D&D 3 and 3.5 and other stuff, was about to retire from the RPG industry, but it seems he’s still going to.

Not much in the way of news, I know, but despite rumors to the contrary, the announcement by Paizo that he is “consulting” on Pathfinder is just a fancy-pants way of saying that they email him for suggestions and he replies, whereupon Paizo does what it wants.
