A Working Conversation About the Open Game License (OGL)

There’s no mention of the OGL 1.0a being perpetual & unrevocable.

Wizards’ Apology: A Desperate Mess of Manipulation and Careful Lies


This should probably be merged with other thread. Two replies are already duplicated in that thread and it’ll probably carry on that way.

Wyrmworks Publishing excellent response to WotC’s OGL 1.2v1 proposal. Highlights Hasbro’s glaring lack of respect for the D&D community, pointing out some of the absurd changes and offering a simple way for a fix to begin the healing process.

I feel betrayed. From January 2004 to the end of 2021, 18 years , you had these words on your website

D&D ≠ WotC . D&D isn’t about the ampersand. It’s about the community.

you’ve united the entire global community by giving us a common enemy — Hasbro . You rolled initiative first, not us

under this license, you are forbidding disability access

Don’t claim that this is all about preventing discrimination. That’s just hypocrisy when the license itself is inherently discriminatory. Another lie.

You included “Irrevocable” but then immediately redefined it. To quote Inigo Montoya, “You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.”


Sounds more like copro-speak to me :wink:
