WaPo on WotC: the dragon must be slain

The ongoing storm within the role-playing games community over the plan by the Wizards of the Coast to "deauthorize" the OGL 1.0a and replace it with a new, far more restrictive one has caught the attention of the Washington Post: "The D&D Open Game License controversy, explained." 

It's not great PR for WotC when the article compares the company to a dragon and concludes: "as any group of D&D adventurers might tell you, in stories like this, the point of a dragon atop a treasure trove is for it to be slain."
