Like the rest of the industry, I have not been unaffected by the whole OGL debacle, and I've decided that I can no longer support or use 5E or any system connected to Wizards of the Coast going forward. What will I do if I do not use any format of an existing system owned by Wizards of the Coast? Starting today, I will place this webpage on hiatus, and I will no longer be making 5e Archetypes, and I will be pulling down the website on January 31st.
I've been leaning this way since before the problems with the OGL. I have a serious problem with WOTC's approach to dealing with the creators that established this industry. Instead of treating bad eggs as the individuals they are and addressing those issues as they come, they have thrown a wide net over everything before 5e as problematic and worthy of ignoring. Despite this, it hasn't kept them from selling back issues of old games in PDF and POD on DMsGuild. The simple fact that they do not acknowledge Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson as the creators of the hobby as we know it is disturbing.
I'm going to wait and see how the market shakes out after the glut of new systems hits the market and after existing systems have scrubbed out all their previous OGL content, and then make a decision as to which, if any, system I might use to relaunch the project.
Thank you to everyone that has visited my website and enjoyed its content.
