Yeah I forgot evil hat, they get their place on the wall of shame where they belong. Kind of wish i had a nice accurate list like this before I made some purchases. Some of these companies are new for me so i'm having to look them up, fortunately the worst offenders dont take much more than a google search or twitter search to see exactly what they stand for

It's all good! There were some posts in August that may have a few more that you list. I would also honestly put Necrotic Gnome in green. Gavin makes it a point to shut down politics, regardless of side, on all forums and socials regarding his game. Hell, he was even asked a political question in an interview once and shot the interviewer down. Likewise, I know the author of Basic Fantasy, while left-leaning, does the same thing because he doesn't want his game politicized.

I actually just got into old school essentials and im glad to hear that. I'm not one who needs the politics in my ttrpgs to be my politics, i'd rather just not have them there at all.

Honestly OSE is such a great product imo. The fit and finish is great, and my leather Rules Tome is one of the few RPG books I own that I would honestly describe as something close to an heirloom piece. Not a massive fan of the advanced content though.

Trying not to get too off topic here but curious whats wrong with the advanced content? I just got the rules tome as of right now so i havn't really even looked at the advanced content.

I know some people got a little pissy with the underdark races from Unearthed Arcana being included (but who knows whether that outrage was real). Personally I prefer just the pure B/X and put my own house rules, whereas the Advanced content felt more like a lot of Gavin's house rules in it, which aren't bad just not my cup of tea.

Edit: Back on topic, I would also include Sine Nomine as Green, Kevin Crawford doesn't like to get political at all from what I have seen and he had mostly just ignored any attacks on his games.
