lol, sorry but I really think most have trust issues with D&D and Hasbro in general, there are so many great 3rd party games that are better in many ways. Actually if Hasbro had not tried to be so openly greedy many many would have never got the chance to show their stuff so thanks Hasbro for being the idiot corporate greedy people you are.


Well Open5e needs some legal pages for the OGL, the OGC declaration, & proper Sec. 15 attribution.

Edit: I missed the link at the bottom of each item where it took you to the original material, I was looking for a Sec. 15 line like 5esrd has. They DO have a legal page (Open5e) but it seems to have lost it's link in the sidebar.
