Fellow scribes,

Interesting news in the Courts of Tyr!

WotC is being sued by Margaret Weis LLC and Tracy Hickman, for alleged breach of contract. The first link is the actual filing in District Court, that way there is no interpretation about the filing. The second one is a news article about the issue.



A possibly telling excerpt from the news article is,
quote:
The lawsuit also states that Weis and Hickman, as they were writing Dragons of Deceit, had complied with several requests from Wizards that “proposed certain changes in keeping with the modern-day zeitgeist of a more inclusive and diverse story-world,” which Wizards was entitled to do by the terms of their licensing agreement. Weis and Hickman claim in the suit to have carried out all of Wizards’s requested rewrites, including one that reportedly took 70 pages to resolve, over issues that included the story’s use of love potions, certain characters’ names having negative connotations, and unspecified matters of inclusivity.


Interesting news issue!

Best regards,

Fellow Scribes,

I wanted to add this video I watched: it's pretty good.
