Top News Stories
D&D missteps referenced on Hasbro earnings call: During the Hasbro earnings call on Thursday, CEO Chris Cocks admitted that Wizards had ‘misfired’ with its handling of the OGL, though also stated that the financial implications (in the form of D&D Beyond subscriptions) were relatively minor. From there, the earnings discussion of D&D focused significantly more on the upcoming movie, officially licensed video games like Baldur’s Gate 3, and next year’s TV show. Go figure.
Discussion of the Week
An excerpt from ‘The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England’: The original post is a great resource for more grounded fantasy games, and the thread has yet more, which expand on the original both in time period and geography (though still fairly limited to Europe).
