    D&D General Hasbro activist begins proxy fight, urges Dungeons & Dragons spinoff

    Who are answerable to the shareholders ultimately. I disagree with what you’re writing here. Shareholders’ bottom line ultimately decides policy, giving direction to those who shape strategy. Hasbro has a market cap of some 14billion, and as of me writing this comment has seen a jump of +6.42...

    D&D General Hasbro activist begins proxy fight, urges Dungeons & Dragons spinoff

    I mean, the idea that shareholders aren’t calling the shots for WoTC now is a bit misguided. D&D and Mtg are completely corporate now. That’s pretty undeniable.

    Lol, fair question! But to answer it seriously, I could see a company like Amazon moving into this space, both to tie up the rights to IPs for Prime shows, video game licenses, twitch stuff, etc etc etc. It isn’t as far fetched as people might think it is.
