Wizards of the Coast has laid off two long-term editors, Chris Sims and Jennifer Clarke Wilkes, who both have worked on the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons.

Sims, who has been a technical editor, developer and game designer for WotC since 2005, worked on Dungeons & Dragons 3rd, 4th and 5th edition; the Dungeons & Dragons Miniatures  Game; as well as worked on both Magic: The Gathering and Duel Masters TCG.

Sims confirmed that there are currently eight in-house full-time staff members, including the producer, remaining on the tabletop Dungeons & Dragons team, not including additional staff employed for art design, brand, and licensing.

Clarke Wilkes has been a senior editor for WotC since 2008, and has been with the company since 1995. Her editing and author credits include numerous Dungeons & Dragons books for Advanced D&D; 3rd, 4th and 5th editions; and several Magic: The Gathering sets.
