I can't speak for others, but I didn't bring it up here because I was too busy talking about it in several other places. Yeah, what a clown show, the spirit of the old T$R rising to haunt D&D again.
They did it... the madmen actually went and did it.
The ENTIRE 5.1 SRD. Under Creative Commons. And no OGL changes(for now).
We'll want to be extra cautious, but it seems someone actually got a clue over at WOTC - though a part of me wonders if this is a gamble to try to kill ORC and come back later by the CC move.
But a full reversal is probably due to the movie. There's been some calls to boycott the D&D movie and the distributor probably said "fix this" to WOTC so the movie doesn't bomb.
I wasn't aware of any of them.
Which is probably why the OGL revision (especially the part about claiming creative works) reminded me Blizzard’s own EULA shenanigans with Warcraft 3 Reforged.Keep an eye out for a clawback, they might have accidentally put some IP (like Strahd and Beholders) into the OGL content.
One of the core problems seems to have been that the guy in charge of D&D content came out of MMOs, and assumed that the whole subscription and microtransaction model could be applied to tabletop as well.
