Eric Farand is a hell of a guy. One time (actually, about eight times) I butted heads with him pretty hard. The scene routinely played out like in any-old-RPG where the lesser villain (me) is defeated by the graceful hero (Eric), and I'm like "fine, just kill me." But then Eric spares me and I re-join his party. And I level up even after losing.
And that's why the RPGFan Soundtracks section never stopped being awesome.
Also the site is in super-good hands with John McCarroll. Eric was wise to choose this year (instead of say, 2009 or 2015) to drop his EiC role. But, like me, he'll be sticking around in an advisor/consultant capacity. It's the BEST! It's like being a grandparent, all the fun with minimal responsibility.
