This is not TPW related, but some of our fellow modders are in need of your help.

Posted by MathijsRevora on Sep 4th, 2012

As some of you might have heard, the most ambitious Skyrim mod, MERP, just received a C&D letter from Warner Bros. Entertainment.

The only logic I can see behind WB's decision to send a Cease and Desist letter to a non-profit, volunteer-operated project with no threat to their finances would be a well-founded fear of the product they are sending out. So if anything, we should be petitioning WB to make better games so that these people don't have to.

Anyway, please do us all a favor and sign this petition. Don't let volunteers and their immense creativity get squashed by corporate greed.
