    OGL WotC Backs Down: Original OGL To Be Left Untouched; Whole 5E Rules Released as Creative Commons

    It will be interesting to see who, if anyone exits from Hasbro/WotC in the next couple of months. Would show how much a power struggle happened inside the company.

    OGL Now that this is over (for now at least) What are you going to do?

    Waiting to see which executives and higher exit in the next month or two from Hasbro and Wizards. It could be very telling as to future directions for now.

    OGL Gizmodo: Dungeons & Dragons Has Burned Up All the Goodwill

    I have been saying this for awhile. There is a bit of an echo chamber, where this is getting a lot of play within the online D&D community. Elsewhere, hard to say. My players just do not care. In fact, more than one has told me that they have unfollowed or unsub a ton of individuals since...

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

    So, this book is still not for sale on D&D Beyond. This is extremely unusual; it should have been there for pre-sale months ago. It is possible that the dislike of D&D Beyond by some individuals with WotC is true? It really does not make any sense not to have this item available for sale on...

    GenCon dropping COVID vaccination, masks mandates in 2023

    Hope that they continue to do the online convention. I have been enjoying the online version for the last several years. Cannot really handle crowds.

    Yes, it does. We have been in talks to full turn it on to monitor the employees at my work. We have also set it for various client so they can track their workers.

    Considering that Discord was in talk about a year or two ago with Microsoft to be purchased for around $10 billion. No way Hasbro would have that kind of cash.

    Given the pressure on Hasbro and the increase mainstream press coverage, never say never. I would imagine that they have engaged a crisis PR firm, who will tell them that a termination is called for. Especially when as it is only a matter of time before the press goes digging in Chris Cao. If...

    At the least I would not be shocked to see Chris Cao employee with Hasbro/WotC terminated to earn a PR win and maybe as a means to justify a complete reverse in direction. Given report of his behaviour it would be extremely use for him to be thrown under the bus and have all the blame placed on...

    OGL The Washington Post is reporting on the situation now

    Depending on how things go I would not be surprised if we do see Chris Cao terminated with a public reason given due his abuse. A quick PR win and public reason to really reverse course. Sure it will be a topic on the table Monday at Hasbro.

    I really doubt that that Fantasy Grounds or any of the other will be purchased by WotC. If they were going to do that they would have done so already. The other option of a force shut down will not happen as that would cause an even greater storm of issues, such as the fact most VTTs have...

    That would be asking someone like me or in similar situations to give up playing completely. That is a non-start. There are plenty of ways to play online that will never see a single cent go to Hasbro. So, it better to say, just keep on playing how you are playing and ignore Hasbro attempts...

    That is the interest fact that I still need my books for online play. It is easier from most people to read and use stuff on paper then the screen. That is why I print out most of the PDFs that I use a lot. Just easier on my eyes.

    Not going to happen. There are reason why people have doing online TTRPG for a while now. Fantasy Grounds and Roll20 were around look before the pandemic and 5E. I started playing remote years ago when I was going through chemo and it was not a good idea to game in person. Not looked back.

    Depends on the workplace. Ours is retention is years. For several businesses there can be legal needs to have items keep for the same. Worked at government agency (note I am not in the US) and a couple of hospitals and they keep chat logs for longer than a couple of months.

    I am dyslexic and I do mean conventional. Currently, we have multiple clients with workers in retail, admin, factory work, transport/delivery and other where workers are using MS Teams. Might not be what you are seeing but we gotten a lot of individuals outside of IT on MS Teams.

    Surprised that he does not know what Teams is. Guessing that he might not have a conversional job as the use of MS Teams has exploded throughout the corporate world as Microsoft has been pushing on every MS Office user. It is also a replacement for several older MS products such as Skype for...

    No kidding. How many good game franchises have been wrecked by seeking to become the next WOW? One fact that is forgotten is a not all D&D players are MMORPG players. In fact, most of the people I have played with no not like MMO. Otherwise, would the two D&D MMOs be bigger then they are?

    Doubtful. MS Teams logins normally would be tired to their corporate network emails. So non-Hasbro/WotC would not have access the Hasbro/WotC and most companies do not issue individual more than one account. This is why I call D&D Shorts highly irresponsible. MS Teams has a ton of elements...

    OGL DnD Shorts final video

    I am finding D&D Shorts to be highly irresponsible. Clearly showing that he has zero journalism training. His poorly thought-out method of reporting the situation is going to cause several people to be fired at WotC. Should have done a much better job at ensure that his sources cannot traced...
