GSL Latest

It sounds like the GSL is better for third-party pubishers as recently feared. Check out this interview with WotC's Mike Lescault from ENWorld.

And here's a couple more pictures: a shifty looking Dark One and a reinvented fey-looking gnome in a skirt:


Not Such Good News

More stuff about the new 4e GSL has been revealed and it seems that companies who decide to support 4e can't continue to publish 3.x/OGL products. This is fine for companies like Necromancer Games who are going to publish 4th Edition D&D material only but rubbish for Green Ronin who have a very successful superhero game in Mutants & Masterminds and a simplified version of d20 in True20. It looks like these companies are going to have to make a tough decision to support their current lines or switch to 4e. More info (and a lot of outraged posters) here

There are also reports that publishers won't be able to continue selling things with the old d20 system logo on after a certain date. This will mean a lot of d20/3.x stock being offered at cheap prices to sell it off.

I'm sure we haven't heard the last of this.


Good News!

Looks like there will be third party 4e D&D products after all. From ENWorld/Wizards website:

Wizards of the Coast is pleased to announce that third-party publishers will be allowed to publish products compatible with the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition game system under the new Dungeons & Dragons 4E Game System License (D&D 4E GSL). This royalty-free license will replace the former d20 System Trademark License (STL), and will have a System Reference Document (SRD) available for referencing permissible content.

The D&D 4E GSL will allow third-party publishers to create roleplaying game products in fantasy settings with the D&D 4th Edition rules, and publishers who register with WotC will be granted the right to use a version of the D&D logo that denotes the product as compatible with the D&D 4th Edition Roleplaying Game, in accordance with WotC’s terms and conditions. The effective start date for sales of D&D 4E GSL publications will be October 1, 2008.

The license associated SRD will be available on June 6, 2008, at no cost. A small group of publishers received advanced notice and will receive these documents prior to June 6, at no cost, in order to prepare for publication of compatible materials by the effective start date. If you haven’t already been contact by WotC, you will be able to access the documents on the Wizards website beginning on June 6, 2008.

Wizards is also working on the details of a second royalty-free license, the d20 Game System License (d20 GSL). This license will allow third-party publishers to create roleplaying game products in non-fantasy settings with the 4E rules. The exact details for the d20 GSL will be released as they become available.
