    D&D: why the new OGL is really bad

    There's some controversy right now about the new OGL (Open Gaming License) published by Wizards of the Coast, the company behind Dungeons & Dragons.

    I don't talk about D&D here a lot, since I know it's not relevant to Fimfiction, but I think it's worth getting this news out. Also they're owned by Hasbro, the same company that own MLP, so it's worth knowing what they're up to.

That's amazing. XD Though I'm irked they used a cover, what the hell is that noise? D:

On one hoof, that's adorable.

On the other hoof, I'm really glad I don't live in the Middle East right now. No reason...

:twilightsheepish: Look! I built a robot!
:rainbowhuh: Is...is it flirting with me?
:twilightblush: ...It gets lonely in the castle

We get so used to Photoshop that the line between it and reality is blurred. Then we have twerking robots all around us and we ask, "When did this happen?"

Although I have to admit, if I built a robot like this, the first thing I'd do is have it dance to a catchy tune. Kudos.

Remember that one EQG short where Scitwi built a robot girlfriend for Spike? Yeah, this.

wait that happened?

it seems i was wise in ignoring the eqg productions accross the uears *shudder* :unsuresweetie:

For a moment I imagined a couple of white-coated engineers as a backup dancers, doing the cabbage patch dance to the beat of music. :rainbowlaugh:


It's moments like this that remind me that we're all living in the future, far beyond year 2000!

And it's a much weirder future than people thought. There's bad bits and scary bits, no shortage of those, but most of all it's nonchalantly weird in a way that it's easy to lose sight sometimes. Like, of course we have a twerking robot now, why wouldn't we? :twistnerd:

Still no flying cars, though...

Every so often I'll see a headline like

British team defrost ancient virus from Antarctic ice

that makes me think we're living in a very specific low-budget 1970s sci-fi future.

The reality is, though, we're living in all the low budget sci-fi futures at once.

I like the way robotics is going


This is the timeline the hero has to unwind to fix things.
