Kobold Press announce Project Black Flag for a new Core Fantasy tabletop ruleset: available, open, and subscription-free. #RaiseTheFlag
Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast are changing the Open Gaming License to support One D&D, but it means less freedom and money to third-party publishers.
There’s been a significant backlash. In the last hour, D&D has officially asked the community for more time.
However, some significant publishers are already taking action. Kobold Press, who have been instrumental with D&D 5e from the outset, today announced Project Black Flag.
As we look ahead, it becomes even more important for our actions to represent our values. While we wait to see what the future holds, we are moving forward with clear-eyed work on a new Core Fantasy tabletop ruleset: available, open, and subscription-free for those who love it—Code Name: Project Black Flag.
It’s noted that Kobold talks about values in their statement too. Some think WotC is being unfair and acting against the spirit of the rules.
There seems to be a significant interest in Black Flag already. In fact, 5e fans crashed Kobold’s site.
What’s happening to Kobold’s 5e projects? Nothing. The current Kickstarters, such as Campaign Builder: Cities & Towns, are going ahead, and Deep Magic Volume 2 remains 5e compatible.
