For those that missed the Saga, DnD 5E is now in the creative commons after Wizards cast a wish spell to undo their multiple nat 1s.


Dungeons & Dragons' publisher will put the game under a Creative Commons license; TechCrunch

DnD’s core mechanics have been provided under the OGL, Open Games License, that have allowed people to build careers out of it. DnD is getting pretty big and it’s not just paper roll playing, people cosplay characters and run acted out campaigns, selling merchandise and other wares. With the upcomming movie and new rule set Wizards of the coast wanted their extra piece of the pie, creating a new OGL that would retroactively replace the old one (which is apparently legally questionable), give them more control over content and a percentage of the revenue from people who make over a certain amount.

It leaked and people freaked, many cancelled subscriptions to their online game building service, creators made videos about how to get into new systems, it was a whole thing.

After multiple attempts to clarify and then rewrite the new OGL, Wizards realized their only real play was to give up, and has released the core mechanics into creative commons in hopes people might stop jumping ship right before their big movie.

The film is out, the reviews are in and the general consensus is… it is good.

I read through the wikipedia synopsis and on one hand I spoiled some reveals, but on the other it was dense enough that I’m sure to forget at least a few of them, which makes me happy as they seem to presume the audience can hold onto more than one thought at a time and there’s no suggestion that this is all just 9 year olds hyped on sugar playing a game so it doesn’t matter anyway.

I have the first eyebowl knowledge, having seent it.

Yes, it is good. It is a lot of fun. I have only a mostly passing familiarity with the D&D but enjoyed recognizing the things I did recognize. It was a fine story, well acted.

I remember when that came out. I was busy trying to learn how to be an adult then.
My grandkids have offered a number of times to let me in a game with them, but I think they are just trying to "Be kind to the Old Fart."
