NCsoft has announced a number of promotions and reassignments within the Tabula Rasa team, with Sr. QA Tester Neal Johnson taking on the position of QA Lead from Dane Caruthers, who has been promoted to Assistant Producer, and TR Community Manager April Burba will be moving to an Associate Production role on Dungeon Runners.
"It is my distinct honor to announce the promotion of Dane Caruthers from QA Lead to Assistant Producer. Dane has had a distinguished career in the industry and at NCsoft and has been fighting Bane and Bugs since before ship. We expect great things from him. You will be seeing more of Dane on the Forums as call sign Entropic. Congratulations Dane!
It is also my honor to announce the promotion of Neal Johnson from Sr. QA Tester to QA Lead. Neal too has had a distinguished career at NCsoft and has been so knowledgeable about TR that he has been mistaken for Lead Designer at conventions. Congratulations Neal!
Finally, it is with deep sadness that I announce that I have been reassigned to another game within the NCsoft family and will be assuming the Associate Production role on Dungeon Runners. The bling gnomes have run amok and believe they can turn my ban-hammer skills into gnome-hammer skills. All joking aside, it has been an honor serving in the AFS with each of you. Your knowledge and passion for the game are unparalleled and I look forward to watching how the community and the development team work together to make TR great."
