Recently, Wizards of the Coast and their parent company Hasbro have announced they will be making changes to their Open Gaming License which previously allowed indie creators to make and sell original content that can be used within Dungeons and Dragons. We stand opposed to the changes that would limit these creators in what they're able to do and the amount of income they can generate.
