That does seem to be the safest thing to make. Anybody else see any other opportunities that are safe from "retroactive redefinition?"

I'm not saying that any license with WotC is free from peril, but this "we were gonna get screwed by the GSL" attitude strikes me as a bit of scapegoating.

I don't want to rule out working with them on some sort of closed license in the future, but they made it pretty clear that ALL licensing doors were closed at least until the launch of 4e and the GSL, and in the meantime we've chosen a different path that does not tie our hands or give another company with different goals than our own the kill-switch power over our destiny.

Clearly they feel as if they lost control of their I.P. in the various incarnations of 3.0/3.5. They are looking for partners that will augment, not supplant their brand. I think the issue for them all along was that they feel they gave up pieces of the market by giving up control of their core system.

Products like Conan and Mutants and Masterminds must have made them livid. Those product lines colonize market space with a different take on their own I.P. In effect they lost revenue as their own game system became an engine for other people's market position.

Great for consumers, great from ther perspective of the diversity of design, not so good for Hasbro.

You folks have picked the right ground to stand on.

Bravo.

To limit what other companies can do. If you like those monsters, you have to buy from Wizards.

Such licenses I've seen also include such "niceties" as paying the licensor for the use of their IP. Don't get me wrong, this thing is a huge step back from the OGL, but let's keep some perspective on how unique and awesome the OGL is.

Absolutely. It made a rules set open code.

It was revolutionary and still is.

It may end up being more durable than anyone imagined.

I think so too: no drow? Egads.

By the by, if Pathfinder had gone 4E, PF volumes 1-18 would be off the shelf once stock sold out. PF 1-12 could have been converted and eventually put back on sale (probably not worth the salary spent doing said onversion), but Second Darkness? Dead in the water, due to drow.

I'm kind of liking Paizo's decision.

I've read it a few times with my IP hat on and that seems to be the most logical/safe. --> Creating modules that use the base classes/monsters as defined within the SRD. Since Keep on the Shadowfell is... meh, you might have a market for "Gamemastery" modules or whatever you want to call a new line. You have people that can crank those out. Of course, I wouldn't start until after "dungeon" goes from free to charge and people start bailing from there.

From a market sense that would make the most sense for you, or most any other company. Goodman can probably fit within that. Peterson... hmmm...

I promised I'd write a 4E adventure if the commission was met, and I still intend to. Right now, I'm very happy that the GSL Wrath of the River King is fairly well insulated from Open Design projects in the main product line.

It's looking very much like my 4E one-shot. I'm not sure I can risk my existing product lines (KQ, Open Design adventures) just to publish under some fairly nasty terms. So I've already got a new product line name and logo underway.

Yep, I can't see Clark being happy about it. I can't see any way to safely do a ToH (or any kind of monster compilation) or advanced PHB under this license. As soon as WotC creates a version with the same name and adds it to the SRD, your product is in violation.

The more I think about it, the worse this is... If you create a monster, class, race or even a power that WotC later duplicates you're sunk unless you come up with something suitably original and copyright/trademark the name of it before WotC.

Technically a ToH or Advance PHB is still possible, as the text mentions the possibility of a "separate licensing agreement" that may allow the publisher to use WotC's intellectual property.

But I agree that, with only the text as written, a 4E ToH/Advanced PHB seems out of question for Necro. Too bad, as I was really looking forward to a 4E ToH.

It's gonna be real hard for them to put a cap on 'Drow'. 'Oh not the D&D Drow, the Everquest drow is our influence' or any of the other myriad of usages recently. Not to mention that Drow is quite an ancient term in legend and myth. I misremember what type of creature it was in reference to exactly but.....


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting Subscriber

Trow. Mythological


Now that I'm over my initial disguist, I have a few more things to add:

I get that Wizards wanted to rein in their IP. Hell, I've been defending their efforts to do that. And I can see why they wouldn't want to help create D&D competitors, so I can live with things like Conan, True20, etc. not being able to piggyback on D&D. Those are both reasonable and expected.

But the "terminate at any time" clause is pure B.S. Whether Wizards likes it or not, the GSL has a competitor: the OGL. What they have offered in its stead is so useless as to be meaningless. The only possible purpose of the GSL as it is written that I can discern is to try to kill the OGL before people think too carefully. It is a giant marketing-cost externalizing machine; nothing more.

Frankly, I've seen big corporations lie before (sometimes firsthand); in some circumstances they are practically legally OBLIGATED to do so; for some silly reason I allowed myself to forget that Hasbro is pulling the strings over at Wizards. I'm sure Scott Rouse had good intentions when he said the OGL would continue, and was probably thought he was telling the truth, but the GSL is no OGL...not even close.

I LIKE 4E, but I'm rethinking continuing purchasing WOTC products. The non-monetary price might simply be too high.

There goes my run 4E/play Pathfinder zen.

"Drow, n., [scot.]." The word is a variant of the Scots term "trow", which itself derives from the Scandinavian word "troll". The original Scottish Gaelic word is pronounced "dtrow" with a soft "dt" sound, and the original pronunciation sounds similar to "troll." The word is also found in Cornish and Welsh, with slight pronunciation differences. The race itself seems based on another dark elf, specifically the Dökkálfar of Norse mythology.

Dökkálfar sounds much more menacing than drow. Drizzt and Elistrae ruined the "drow as infernal menace of terror below." vibe.

Also the definition for 'Drow' is referenced to Webster's dictionary on the Wiki page.

All this talk of monsters reminded me of another clause in there that's potentially troublesome:

"Licensee expressly acknowledges Wizards’ ownership of all imagery and artwork contained in 4E, and Licensee expressly agrees it will not use, publish or reprint any such imagery or artwork, including without limitation any derivatives thereof, without Wizards’ written permission."

So if I make my monsters look like their monsters, is that "derivative" of their art?

Absolutely. They want to have review before someone prints images of their IP that doesn't fit within the standards that they feel are appropriate. Erotic Kobolds. Hillbilly Ogres. Etc.

I saw that during my last looksee and it made sense. It's not very festive, but it made sense. Seems like you could just come up with your own images for whatever you wanted your versions to be and get them reviewed and get a written ok. A pain, but it controls the misuse, which obviously is a much bigger deal than previously.

That's basically saying "dark elf" in another language, for what it's worth.

I think people who AREN'T using the GSL aren't gonna get into a problem with drow, but if you do want to use the GSL, you've already agreed to WotC's rules...no drow for you, except poison. You could probably get away with dark elves or shadow elves or whatnot, as long as they weren't too drow-y.

Qadira

The thing that gets me about this whole debacle is that WotC is cutting themselves with this but they just don't see it. They think that if they close down all the other burger-joints, make it a legal issue for others to cook burgers, and ignore that the other burger joints drew burger-loving customers to the area, then people will have to love their burgers. Unfortunately most of the best chefs work elsewhere now.

Damn. Now I'm hungry.......

You guys seem to be under the impression that we are talking about copyright here. They can't copyright something clearly in the public domain.

But YOU can enter a license agreement that obligates YOU to avoid using it.

Which is why I, were I a publisher, wouldn't touch the GSL.

Is "repaginated" an actual word editors use?

Taldor Contributor

I am only slightly surprised by the terms of the GSL. I expected them to be more open initially, except the provisions to change and/or cancel the license at their discretion. That way they could sucker a few publishers into signing on before crushing them with the full force of the GSL.

For example, if they didn't have the clause requiring publishers to convert all of their old material in a product line, Goodman might go ahead with some 4E DCC modules. Then whammo! slide that clause in and Goodman is out of business.

They've built a giant elaborate trap, but they forgot to bait and camouflage it.
