I am bringing this up as we have had our first case of questionable links posted.

I ask that we as a community please don’t post links to streaming sites, direct downloads, magnet links, etc. related to piracy.

While this is not current against the rules of .world, it is within our best interest to not be posting things like that, for the sake of the instance admins.

This is subject to change in the future of course, but at the moment it is an unanswered question and so we will not be allowing this at the moment.

    Question: What is the opinion on sending a link to something on 5e.tools ?

      Seems fine to me, it’s mostly already available tools and fan fixes etc

        I’m pretty sure WotC would disagree with you considering it contains verbatim copies of all the 5e books - not just mechanics.

        But hey, I’m not complaining - it use it all the time. Just seems like a weird exception to make.

        I use 5e.tools all the time often to check things out in books I own. I also use it to pre-check modules I am thinking of running to see if they are good. But if I am to run them then I buy them…but I recognise that is not what the licence owner wants so technically it is piracy and I am sure others use it and don’t buy the module

        Sounds like you might wanna recheck what’s on that site before you make that call. Most other D&D communities that are against piracy include banning linking to that site.

      5e.tools is very clearly copyright infringement. Unless wizards changed their licensing recently?
