Should You Read Fire & Blood Before Watching House of the Dragon? | Game of Thrones Prequel

In this video, I make some points for and against reading Fire and Blood before House of the Dragon premieres on August 21.

Lawyer-gamer analyzes historic NEW system-neutral RPG license news! No more D&D OGL: ORC will rise!

I analyze Paizo’s historic announcement, comment on recent developments, and call on creators and TTRPG players to support the ORC!

YouTuber Indestructoboy this morning called today “D-Day,” because of the expectation that WOTC would publish it’s horrible new “OGL” that will try to shut down all other companies publishing for D &D. Today truly was a “D-Day,” but for an even more apt reason: the announcement of a new system-neutral, community-owned OPEN gaming license that the community can rally around to become independent from WOTC!

The new license would mean that all who publish their RPG content under it make it available for future companies to use, like the current OGL 1.0a does. And it will NOT be revocable and will be owned by no company; the plan is to give it to a nonprofit foundation (like the Linux Foundation). If the final text delivers on this promise, it DRAWS A LINE IN THE SAND against WOTC, and ALL who support open gaming should support systems who publish under it.

Support all the publishers who will be working to establish the ORC, including Paizo, Kobold Press, Green Ronin, Legendary Games, Roll for Combat, and Rogue Genius Games. The list will surely grow!
