Looks like Dungeon Masters are going to have to start paying for their adventures on D&D Encounters. Each adventure will run 35 bucks. Previously the adventures were free, allowing DMs to pick them up or download them, and the commence to playing them . . . not sure what the whole idea here is, I guess to get DMs to run adventures for new players and get new people involved . . . free of charge.
This will probably hurt the D&D Encounters program most likely, at least in the short run.
