Hehe. It has been quite a wait!JohnSnow said:Noooo. At the rate Martin's going, if they wait for that, we'll never see it!
I see it as a short term decision, that's all. It's very unlikely that Green Ronin, or other big 3rd party companies will keep supporting 3rd edition only in their products beyond 2009, unless 4th Edition seriously tanks. In which case the hobby has much more serious things to worry about.
Anyway, if Green Ronin have a pretty packed production schedule already for 2008, then buying into the OGL at this time may not be the wisest move. I've no doubt the likes of ASOIAF will sell. (If it's anything like the Guardians of Order book, it may not even be able to be published under the new OGL, which would clearly be an issue) Freeport seems rules light and True 20 is an independent system. Do they really gain that much by buying in now, rather then waiting till July and publishing in the 2009? I'm certain that is what they are thinking about over at Green Ronin HQ. $5,000 is not an insubstantial amount of cash, particularly for what amounts to a leap of faith.
