Normally I'd be happy for Lord British, but after he wasted all that time on the piece of crap called Tabula Rasa, I'd say he deserves to be out millions.

It was in his contract he had 10 years to hold onto stock options. NCSoft bought into him and gave him way more resources than he should have had with little oversight. Largely because his brother had a fairly high position in the company. NCsoft had huge issues with giving developers lots of money with very little oversight. It resulted in Tabula Rasa and Auto Assault, two spectacular failures. However, it also resulted in Guild Wars, one of their biggest successes.

He was effectively ousted from the games industry and isn't coming back unless he does it on his own dime. He deserves his money, even if he should probably never make games again.
