SHANE'S FUMBLE RANT

Are fumbles in RPGs “mean”? Are they “sadistic”? Do they make players “feel bad”?

Is this something we really need to be worrying about?

Big news from D&D recently! The Dungeon Master's Guild! 5th Edition SRD and OGL! Adventurer's League changes!

What does it all mean? Can you publish D&D content and make money? Is there a new way to get hired by D&D? Will Batman and Robin escape the death trap? Listen to this podcast to find out!

Some help to make sense of it all (and see links below as well):

It's very important to be clear... the DM's Guild is NOT the OGL / SRD and the OGL / SRD is NOT the DM's Guild.

They are TWO SEPARATE THINGS. Ya gotta understand this to get the rest of it.

Per the DM's Guild website, the Dungeon Masters Guild is a new program that allows you to create content (adventures, monsters, backgrounds, etc.) using Wizards of the Coast intellectual property (IP) and to make some money while you’re at it. In other words, publish through WotC using their copyrighted content and characters.

The System Reference Document (SRD), on the other hand, contains guidelines for publishing role playing game content under the Open-Gaming License (OGL) that does not use WotC IP. You also do not publish through their site in a revenue sharing model.
