"The OGL 1.0a includes a strange term claiming that you agree to be bound by this contract by “using” the “Open Game Content,” such as the mechanics. Wizards of the Coast wrote D&D’s license to operate like a cursed helm, where you’re doomed the moment you put it on."
This is a fun read about the company behind Dungeons & Dragons attempting to change the way people create content for the game. It must be frustrating for Hasbro to see frequent million dollar kickstarter projects for D&D products they didn’t develop. But that demand for their game wouldn’t exist if creators were worried about being sued. They rose to popularity with an open license and now they want to change the terms.
