    OOTS 1274: Better than One

    Maybe you have me looking too hard at this, but I can see some subtle things that might support your theory. In strip 1273, Julia looks worried and surprised when Roy says "you were there" when talking about his audition. A different look than if she just could not recall it. And in this strip...

    OGL Beholders, Mind Flayers, and Strahd von Zarovich Released Into Creative Commons (Kinda)

    Not sure if it was noted, but I believe all these names were in the original 5.1 SRD as well. I think they really just copied over the 5.1 SRD and swapped out the OGL page for the CC page. Edited to add: I just checked and they are both 403 pages long. Coincidence? I think not!

    OGL Beholders, Mind Flayers, and Strahd von Zarovich Released Into Creative Commons (Kinda)

    It may seem parasitic now, but if D&D hits some lean years when the Great Monopoly Fad of 2029 hits, it will be nice that Hasbro will have the money to keep the D&D lights on. With the SRD 5.1 release into CC, the dream of keeping D&D available beyond any company bankruptcy is stronger than...

    D&D General WotC Reveals New Information and Covers for 'Keys from the Golden Vault'

    Hmmm... the deep conspiracy-minded might think this was the real plan all along: get a massive rebound of good-will sales of Keys From the Golden Vault, as well as a bump right before the movie... :ROFLMAO:

    I'm beginning to dislike Netflix (re: Archive 81, 1899, Warrior Nun etc cancellations)

    At the time and for their cost, the effects were pretty spiffy. As rough as this news might be, they might have dodged a bullet not ending up on CW. :sneaky:

    OGL OGL v1.2 Survey Feedback: 'Hasn't Hit The Mark'

    Agreed. It's not a loophole until someone successfully jumps through it. If a judge or jury says no, then what WotC thought was a loophole might be something more like this:

    OGL OGL v1.2 Survey Feedback: 'Hasn't Hit The Mark'

    Today's xkcd strikes me as a loose parallel to the OGL, what with all the talk about it not being the most ironclad legal document. And the first panel sounds like all the work WotC is doing on OGL 2.0...

    Cubicle 7 Also Announces A New 'C7d20' System

    Hmmm.. they do like putting numbers in their name.... :unsure:

    Cubicle 7 Also Announces A New 'C7d20' System

    I would think so. If Project Black Flag (PBF) is compatible with 5e, and C7d20 is compatible with 5e, then it's A = B and B = C, therefore A = C. I think the bigger issue may be a product like, say, an adventure, that references a "sorcerer" or a "troll" by name but not detailed. Do they mean...

    D&D 5E Some thoughts on skills.

    To clarify, when I talk about the system not working for 50%, I don't mean to imply that the system completely fails for them. I think for 50% (or maybe 60%, using the playtest's satisfaction threshold) of the groups out there, they use the 5e skill system out of the book and have no problem at...

    D&D 5E Some thoughts on skills.

    I specifically do not say it's fine; I say that many DMs will need to tweak things for themselves, their campaigns, their players, and/or their playstyle. I think the current system might hit 50% of groups OK. With anyone's "improvements" (yours or mine), I think you would hit 50%, too -- just a...

    OGL OGL v1.2 Survey Feedback: 'Hasn't Hit The Mark'

    If WotC released the actual OGL 1.0a license itself into CC, that might be good. :unsure:

    D&D 5E Some thoughts on skills.

    So forget Michael Phelps; we should put The Mountain on the Olympic swimming team, right? :ROFLMAO: I think different muscles are used for different tasks and in different ways. Seriously, skills will always be an abstraction at some level. And different people will draw that line in different...

    OGL OGL v1.2 Survey Feedback: 'Hasn't Hit The Mark'

    While WotC may have sued NuTSR eventually, the reason for their current suit is they are countersuing after NuTSR filed a case against WotC. And it is not over the content -- it is over NuTSR claiming ownership of trademarks that WotC rightfully owns. ORC is proposing management of the license...

    D&D Movie/TV There's A New Trailer For D&D: Honor Among Thieves

    Maybe they want to introduce the characters in the trailer so that: 1) By cutting scenes together in the trailer to concentrate a bunch about the character in a short snippet, it makes it easier to introduce the characters in the movie itself to those who have seen the trailer (The movie says...

    D&D Movie/TV There's A New Trailer For D&D: Honor Among Thieves

    Alec Baldwin was perfect casting for the Shadow. Shame the script was not. :-/

    I'm beginning to dislike Netflix (re: Archive 81, 1899, Warrior Nun etc cancellations)

    Agreed. I put "filler" in quotes because they did not feel like filler, but the big plot definitely took a back seat in them.

    Yeah, Babylon 5 was an ideal middle ground. Excepting season 5 for reasons listed above, they had standard length seasons with enough room left for metaplot and good fun "filler" episodes that could focus on and build up minor characters.
