D&D SJWs Politicize the OSR Logo; Here's it's Inclusive Replacement

So Stuart Robertson, the inventor of one of the more-common known OSR logos, has decided that he's going to threaten legal action on anyone using the Logo with politics he doesn't like.
Fortunately, I will be presenting an alternative that will be available for FREE, for everyone, in perpetuity to use on their OSR designs, complete with the subtitle of "We only care that you game".

Check out my livestream, at 8:30 EST, where I talk about this and about our new OSR logo. 


Also, because Robertson is already trying to make false claims of ownership over that logo: that logo is not mine, and it's certainly NOT Stuart Robertson's. It was designed by a Mexican artist, and it is inspired by the original TSR Logo. It has no relation or derivation from Stuart's work.

Here is the original TSR Logo for comparison:

And so here is the new logo, inspired by the above:

And with a motto:

  1. He originally released the logo under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. That license by its own terms cannot be revoked as long as the terms are followed (it has to be attributed, and there has to be a link to the CC license). So this would seem to be a non-issue. He can threaten all he wants; it's in the wild now except for those very modest requirements.

    1. That's good to know. Still, if he doesn't want people to use it anymore, then no one should use it anymore. We have a better logo to use.

    2. Exactly, I was looking into that issue recently as I was arguing with a dude who wanted to put additional conditions ater he released his art as CC-BY-SA. Sorry, once you release material with the particular licence its done, you cannot neither withdraw it nor put additional conditions.

    1. That was my first thought after "Christ, that's ugly!"

  3. There are two takes on OSR logo earlier than the one made by Robertson, with ultra liberal licensing.
