Important! Interview opportunity - what do you want to know about the GSL?

I'm getting married in Disney and our hotel doesn't have internet access. If you can convince my soon to be wife that I need to find a place that has internet access so I can find out about the Open Game License, you're welcome to try... ;) She loves D&D and plays with the rest of our group, but I'd feel bad even asking her considering the circumstances.
Congrats. Where are you staying? If you are staying at a WDW resort, the McDonalds on the corner of hotel plaza drive and 535 has the nearest WiFi.

(Yes, I live in NJ. Yes, my wife drags me to WDW too often. The mental map of the WDW properties in my head is about as clear as the one of my home town. Welcome to married life.)

We're staying at Pop Century. It's a destination wedding (obviously) so there are like 25 people going. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak away. If not, I figure I can get wifi next Friday to download Battlestar as she'll go crazy if she misses is. I haven't been to Disney in like 10 years so I have no idea what to expect.

I hope this is posted before the weekend. I'm leaving for Florida really early Saturday morning and if I don't find out by then, I'll have to wait 2 weeks... :(

It won't be this week for sure, sorry about that. But don't cancel the wedding yet!

I am hoping sooner rather than later, but it's not out of the realm of possibility that it won't be ready next week either.

Oh, and congrats. =)

Mike,

Can you give us an overview of the internal process that something like this has to go through before publication?

Thanks!

Actually, I just assumed you were honeymooning down there. Are you getting married at the Wedding Pavilion? That's one of those places at WDW I'd love to see but you can't just wander in off the street. Enjoy wearing the tophat ears. :)

Egads... 'Monday' has become 'maybe by Thursday or Friday' has become 'maybe next week, but don't hold your breath'? (all paraphrased, of course)

I don't blame the messengers here, but this is becoming quite frustrating.

Well, the optimistic take could be that things are back open for discussion. If they had intended a poison pill, they may be thinking about taking it back out (perhaps based on the reaction).

No, he said maybe not even next week. That means my May 1 prediction is not far enough into the future either. But look on the bright side: JV won't miss the announcement during his wedding/honeymoon. :)

Wow. Just ... wow.

At this point, why even bother?

This is just utterly ludicrous.

Thanks! That long? Wow. I thought it would be a lot sooner especially considering Scott Rouse's post. Other than being impatient, I guess there really isn't a rush. Not like I don't have our 4e line up planned anyway. I'm just curious what to do with our back stock. Is there any other info forthcoming sooner? I know when Morrus first posted, he said there was a podcast and other details coming from you guys the next day and we never got any of that unless I missed it.

We're actually not getting married through Disney. We're getting married at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cyprus in downtown Orlando. We didn't do the actual Disney wedding because with the amount of guests we had, it would have been over $10K which is just insane.

True that! :)

I actually feel kinda bad about the threadjack thing... Thank you though.

Indeed. I had to put ALL my ranks in Bluff. :)

Oh, then to get this thread back on target, let's try this:

Q: What do I want to know about the GSL?
A: At the moment, I'd like someone from WOTC to set a reasonable expectation for publishers and fans as to when they feel they will be able to provide the answers to the questions ENWorld has sent them earlier this week.

Does that help?

With Regards,
Flynn

Although we don't have anything official about a "grandfather" clause for OGL products in the GSL I would like to make one suggestion to WotC if they do decide to put one in:

Please have the grandfather clause kick in for anything producted before Oct. 1st rather than when the GSL is signed. I ask this mainly because if it kicks in when the GSL is signed then a "dead zone" for product release is created between the time a publisher signs the GSL and Oct. 1st when they can finally release 4e related products.

Thanks,

Wasn't Mike_Lescault's response good enough for you? He basically said 2 or more weeks. With that time frame, how much more accurate could he be? A better question would be to reiterate DaveMge's request about how many hands the questions will go through before release. Mike might be able to give us a ballpark figure on that.

And to me, that's beginning to sound a lot like "We know you're not going to like what we have to say, so we're sandbagging it."

Must say, I'm losing my faith in WotC.

Tell me, if that is the case, what is the advantage in them "sandbagging it"?

Great we lost another one! :lol:
