DnD has a new OGL license? Wait what?


I'm not sure if I understood right... but does that mean someone can't create their own game if it has a similar mechanic to DnD?
I mean, what parts of the game mechanics can or can't actually be licenced? 👀

Lol they’ve been trying to do a double “go woke with our products” calling things racist or discriminatory in their game…… Despite it being the originator of all inclusivity of a game where you can make up and be whatever kind of a character you want…

It’s a byproduct of. what happens when a product becomes more and more corporate I suppose…

And they’re trying to backtrack on a lot of the bullshit of what they’ve been saying because they’re getting so much backlash but it’s likely already too late.. they’re wanting to flood their game with tons of micro transactions.. and essentially bully others into giving them lunch money as if no one else ever could create another fantasy world genre for people to participate in.. and that all other games out there would fail just because they didn’t have the name brand logo which is “Dungeons and Dragons..”

It’s a shame that the most inclusive games ever have suddenly been isolating its entire audience because of its hollow and soulless machine like transformation of “big business..”

It’s Like no one ever heard of the phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it..” before

But isn't woke meant to be like anti-capitalist or something?
And they're trying to make more $$ by doing this lol 😂

@Fishy The whole world seems to love being a perpetual state of contradiction and hypocrisy these days..

Don’t ask me why all these companies keep thinking that they’ll impress their fans by insulting them?? 🤷‍♀️ I just pay attention to my news feed so I’m well versed on what they’re doing.. They keep calling their fans racist and sexist if they don’t support their shitty products.. 👀☕️ Even though ironically supporting a lot of their shit actually would be racist and sexist and it’s really easy to point out why.. and they just get big mad that other people aren’t as dim witted as they would have hoped them to be..
