    You are Wotc.
    Now, what would you do about it?

    Nothing. Because I bet it'll end up as a critic's darling but only sell 100 copies...

    Perhaps I should have made this as a poll.

    1. Do nothing
    2. Try to take ideas for the current edition if possible
    3. Try to design the next edition on (the ideas of) the new revolutionary design
    4. Turn the next edition to OGL and develop on that design
    5. Hire the person that did this to work on the development of the next edition
    6. Something else, explain.

    Mr. Piratecat is this possible? I mean, can I transform the thread in a poll?

    I, as WotC, ask a simple question:

    Does it have the D&D name on it?

    When I determine this answer is no, I shrug and get on with things, because the game called D&D always wins. It also helps to be selling a most revolutionary and awesome game yourself.

    1, 5, in that order. 5 nets you 2, more or less. WotC didn't embrace the OGL when it was new; they're not going to leap into it now.

    There's no hypothetical question here. History shows conclusively: the answer is "do nothing."

    What I'm interested is: what is the OP getting at?

    And to make this harder for you, what if the person did not accept to work for you but instead replied in public with the suggestion of Wotc turning OGL?

    Sounds like a pipe dream from someone desperately seeking WotC getting a black eye courtesy of the OGL.

    And I am answering back with a question: what are you suspecting I am getting at? Because if you were not suspecting something you would not make the question. The OP is pretty simple and straightforward.
