Which artist has done the character in the background of the announcement page ? Wayne Reynold ?
If this are the new iconic, then we will have tieflings as a base race. Not a surprise : every new edition made changes in the base races.

The current policy of WotC regarding fan sites is a bit vague, but generally as long as the site isn't for profit and doesn't publish WotC's own work, Wizards won't bother it. This includes the publishing of fan material on ENWorld. You still aren't encouraged to publish material that significantly expands on Wizards' material - publishing your homebrew is fine, publishing a detailed gazzeteer to the Forgotten Realms isn't.Originally Posted by jasin
As I undersand it, Gleemax will offer you the chance to publish material that heavily draws on WotC's material in a legal manner. For example, Wizards won't endorse the publishing of a Guide to Sigil on your private site - it's not your material, you can't publish it. But it will welcome such additions to Gleemax.
Anything you post on Gleemax will belong to WotC. However, what this means in practice is that if they like your material it may be inlcuded in future products, articles, or netbooks. So if your Guide to Sigil is impressive, it just might be referred to in an official article, be made into an official netbook, or even get published (after much editing and revision, for sure). In doing this, you'll be credited and - esepcially for larger contributions - rewarded and employed.
So, you can't publish stuff like A Guide to Sigil on ENWorld. If you would, Wizards won't do anything - although ENWorld might. They'd only intervene if they see your work as causing them problems, or they see you making a profit of it. They'd like you to post it to Gleemax, however, where it would also have a chance of being incorporated into the cannon.

Really? Looking at the now-defunct OD&D/BD&D stream, they never changed at all after Hobbits (later renamed Halflings) were introduced. Looking at the AD&D/D&D3 stream, 2E removed half-orcs and 3E brought them back. That's it. If anything, it's surprising how little change the selection of base races has seen.Originally Posted by Alo´sius

To me it seems more like William O'Connor's style.Originally Posted by Alo´sius
I'm selling all of my AD&D material (DL, FR, RL etc.), all of my TSR/WotC novels and some books for some other systems too (CoC, Elric!, Stormbringer etc.). Look here

Tieflings as a base race - Planescape 4E?
...in that case I would buy every piece of 4E on the market - and I'd steal the rest!

Update 4ed news page please
Can we get a link to this or a summary in the 4ed news section off the main?
Just for ease of tracking what's going on. I remember constant perusal of Eric Noah's site when 3ed was coming, and ENworld is the successor of all that.

There's no such thing as stories or storytelling. RPG roleplaying is game system mastering

I was at the press announcement last night (I work for an Indiana newspaper) and they very definitely said that 4e would fall under OGL and they would be releasing a new SRD. They very clearly expressed a desire for third parties to continue to produce D&D compatible material.Originally Posted by Xyxox
A 4e Forgotten Realms will be the first setting book released, and I believe that is scheduled for next August. Chris Perkins was pretty vague when I asked directly what they were going to do with Ravenloft, Dragonlance and Eberron. It seemed like the plan would be to roll out one new setting each year. He even teased me that Greyhawk could be one of those. But I think that was just because I admitted to being an old-school Greyhawk gamer.
For what it's worth, I believe there is going to be a 930 a.m. press release hitting the wire, or so their PR people told me last night. They didn't specifically embargo us but since I saw news on the front page about it with quotes from Bill, I figured I could comment on it.
