    Chaosium Releases Basic Role Playing SRD

    I'm sure that Michael Moorcock would LOVE to give Chaosium another license to use his work :)

    Chaosium Releases Basic Role Playing SRD

    In which case, why not produce a Community Content Program which delivers that but also has the benefit of raising revenue for Chaosium? This license make no sense.

    Chaosium Releases Basic Role Playing SRD

    See this discussion on problems with the BRP-OGL: . In particular, the discussion of clause 10. Once you publish under BRP-OGL you’re locked in forever.

    Chaosium Releases Basic Role Playing SRD

    Who is this BRP-OGL intended for? It’s not really intended for producers of original settings because they surrender control of their own IP. It’s not really intended for producers of adventures because the SRD is so bare-bones that it requires authors to reinvent the wheel by writing a lot of...

    Chaosium Releases Basic Role Playing SRD

    As far as I can interpret from what Chaosium have said, their beef with the Mongoose RQ SRD was that it included items (such as Gloranthan IP) which were licensed to them for a specified period, and, thus, Mongoose were not in a position to perpetually sub license them under the WotC OGL. This...

    Pathfinder 1E Wrath of the Righteous Pathfinder CRPG Announced

    Interesting. Not my choice for a follow up to Pathfinder but it should have some new mechanics which will make it different from Pathfinder. Clearly they thought Skull & Shackles would be too similar to Pillars of Eternity 2. Why not adapt APs to video games? Hollywood adapts novels into...

    D&D 5E Question about OGL and 5e third party

    I have a couple of questions about some 3rd party products I've seen. On publisher makes reference to Dungeons & Dragons in their 3pp. They also provide no OGL declaration. Similarly, another publisher has no OGL in their product. I have also seen products that only state the license with no...

    Non-D&D Fantasy Games - the best and why?

    D&D Retroclones: OSRIC, a retroclone of AD&D1e. Labyrinth Lord, a retronclone of B/X D&D. Swords and Wizardry, a retroclone of original (0e) D&D. There is a swords and sorcery variant, Crypts and Things, which is supposed to be quite good. Dark Dungeons, a retroclone of rules compendium BXCMI...

    Favorite Post Apocalyptic d20 game or setting

    Specifically, it was the design decision to replace class abilities/talents with feats. It seemed to me that at that point there was less to differentiate classes beyond initial ability, BAB and save bonuses. It seems to me that you might as well just abandon classes altogether like CoCd20...

    Favorite Post Apocalyptic d20 game or setting

    I have Modern20 and it wasn't really my cup of tea. It seemed to be heavily inspired by True20. So much so, that I'm not sure it really offered anything different from True20. On the whole, I'm not sure that I would use Modern as the base for a Pathfinder update. I've come to feel that the...

    Favorite Post Apocalyptic d20 game or setting

    Darwin's World. Setting is less gonzo than Gamma World and has a distinct Fallout feel to it as a result. d20 Apocalypse was a good PA toolkit as well.

    The Plane Above - the Glorantha-fication of D&D?

    Very much so. Mongoose Publishing have just published the second edition of "Glorantha: the Second Age" which is a great introduction to Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha. It should be relatively rules-free (with rules for RuneQuest II). Or you could get a copy of the first edition in a bargain...

    So, anyone looking at Mongoose Runequest II?

    I always thought that BRP/RQ assumed that default skill chances were under stressful situations such as combat. Otherwise you got a bonus to your skill. I do admit that the fumble chances are still a little high in such circumstances (1% at besy) There are quite a few people that like RQ but...

    Pathfinder 1E Sinister Pathfinder

    Certainly interested in an update of d20 Future. I'm assuming this would take the Modern SRD and pick out those elements that support your Dark Horizons line and then revise.

    D&D 4E d20 Modern 4e

    I have to agree with most of the previous replies in that I think that there will not be an official d20 Modern 2nd Edition. The two main RPG genres are fantasy and sci-fi and D&D and Star Wars fill those niches nicely. I think it more likely that you will see a one-off supplementary book for...
