    http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x...news/20080417a

    Doesn't really say much I don't think - anyone else heard anything?

    Actually, that is big news, because it confirms the GSL is still coming, that's it's royalty-free, but that it will be restrictive like the d20 STL.

    Considering that there was concern the 3rd party support was going to be scrapped entirely or severely toned-down to a invite-only list, that let's me know I can get back to work on ideas for 4E psionics material

    That's good news!

    I hope that at least some of the better established publishers get the opportunity to release at Gencon, if only on a special license. I think seeing third party support at Gencon will help make the launch of 4e more successful.

    " The effective start date for sales of D&D 4E GSL publications will be October 1, 2008."

    If they push GenCon to Oct 1...

    And I wonder if this fantasy and non-fantasy thing means that 3rd parties with this license for now can only create adventures.

    Actually, that's what I was responding to. I was hoping that the 10/1 date was for the wide release, and they'd allow a few publishers from their early call list to get stuff out at Gencon.

    Actually, it speaks volumes.

    It tells us, at a minimum:

    Wizards still has a commitment to open gaming.

    The talk of a GSL was genuine, not an attempt to "embrace, extend and exterminate".

    There are no cease and desist letters heading out to fan sites after 4e's launch.

    The October 1st date applies to all 3PPs publishing under the D&D 4E GSL, including those that are getting early access.

    The date is completely unrelated to GenCon.
