MCDM Announces The End of Arcadia Magazine.
The TTRPG community continues to change in response to Hasbro’s leaked OGL 1.1.
While The tabletop publisher of D&D has yet to make an official statement on the nature of this license allegedly revoking a foundational element of the TTRPG industry.
Developers have signed open letters, and a few have already announced plans for open license TTRPGs of their own.
But this new OGL has led to a bleak future for various third-party sources and supplements, including the end of MCDM’s Arcadia magazine.
The news of Arcadia magazine’s cancellation was found in MCDM’s most recent Patreon update.
In the post, MCDM’s founder Matt Colville discussed the future of the studio as well as how they would continue producing TTRPG content.
First, Arcadia magazine will have its final issue published on July 2023.
In addition, all future content released by the studio will become system and setting-agnostic, removing any explicit connections to Hasbro’s flagship franchise.
