#Hasbro, owner of Wizards of the Coast (#WOTC), to lay off 15% of workforce
“However, the changes are necessary to return our business to a competitive, industry-leading position.”
The article follows the corporate #playbook / #Newspeak.
I don't believe much will change after the #OGL #CreativeCommons charade, but more noticeable diversity would do the hobby good. More social media presence of other #ttrpg would be helpful, it will probably soon go on as before. #DnD

Slowly but surely this #Hasbro #wotc or #OGL discussion is getting on my nerves, especially since neither #Dungeons nor #Dragons particularly excite me, rule system and most associated worlds are rather boring in my opinion. There are so many other nice alternatives - without d20! Some bheresy: #DnD ≠ #ttrpg!
Just my 2 cents, among others I’m looking forward to some of #OspreyGames‘ #ttrpg 2023:

@Frank I think it depends on how much money #Hasbro / #Wotc will lose in the foreseeable future.

As I said before, corporate bullying is nothing new in the hobby scene.

I already blacklisted #GamesWorkshop, my last #DnD related book was #CurseofStrahd, and the ridiculously overhyped #MörkBorg was probably my last #OSR book. Even before the #OGlL shit I strongly disliked clones/rip-offs like #OSE, #DC, #Pathfinder.

There are so many games out there I prefer over redundant #d20 crap. #ymmv
