Continued 3.5 support?


4th Edition

Liberty's Edge

Has(ve) any company(ies) said they will continue to do 3.5 OGL products after 4.0 shows up?

Not a single one that I track...most are already clamoring about being an early adopter and bla bla bla. One has even promised to provide free 4e updates to every product they have (and you legitimately own).

Dang it, I was hoping you wouldn't ask...I can't get to my email from work, but I'll post the info tonight.

Cut-n-paste from the latest Bards and Sages email:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patronage over the years, and to remind you that it is our intention to update our current products with free conversions once 4th edition is available, so your Bards and Sages products will be useful regardless of what version you decide to play!

Liberty's Edge

Woah. Cool link!


I predict that the companies offering free updates to their products will be very much in the minority. There were a few that did that when TSR went to 3rd Ed.

We have not made a final decision as to what we will do regarding 3.5, however we intend to continue to support 3.5 in some capacity. Whether that means separate 3.5 and 4th edition products, or products that present both options, is still up in the air, or some variant thereof, we don't know. We figure we still have plenty of time before we have to put anything in stone, but I am very interested in hearing suggestions from anyone.

Wait a minute. You mean to tell me that a company other than Paizo watches these boards and is willing to respond to us with pretty up-front statements regarding their intentions. And they ask for suggestions!

This is just too weird! I think my head is gonna explode.


My lawyers advise me that we cannot be responsible for exploding heads due to any honesty coming from our company.

And we had nothing to do with that nasty kobold incident, we swear.

But, yes, I'm pretty open to suggestions, comments, and criticisms. And with the magic of Google I can usually track down those threads and such that may require my attention. ;)

Very strange.

I know that there is a post by BardsandSages ahead of this one, but it doesn't appear. It is listed as the 'last post'. And I can read part of it in the preview.

It is supposed to be from 1 hour 55 minutes ago.

Here's to hoping that this post will force the prior post to appear. Something about lawyers and heads exploding.

Edit - Nope. Doesn't look like it. Very strange.

Hope you can see it now.

Stop it! Just STOP! You're killing me here! Don't you know that companies (sorry Paizo, don't mean you guys) aren't supposed to respond to their customers, but instead just treat them as easily replaced sources of income.

Haven't you ever heard the phrase "Cruel to be kind". You're getting it backwards.

Oh, I can be cruel. But I generally reserve that venom for the idiots who send me their full-length romance novels for possible submission...even though we don't publish romance novels. Or the ones who send poetry submissions in florescent green cursive font because "they want to stand out."

Even a romance novel with a forbidden love between a 1/2 orc and an elf? Poor starcrossed lovers.

or a werewolf, and a wolfwere? Or a mermaid and a fish-head-man?Or a Jinni and a light brown hare?

Paizo.

We're uniters.

Not dividers.

These sound more like horror stories to me...

What if they're written in blue crayon on a brown paper bag?

Seriously i'd not heard of your company, but will definately check it out when I get home. I need to express my support for 3.5 publishers (as long as they don't suck ;-))

Horror stories indeed (per Bardsandsages' reply) ...

" So, lemme get this straight guys. The party is comprised of a half-orc bard, an elf power-attack fighter, a werewolf cook, a wolfwere tailor, a mermaid mounted-combat fighter and a Deep One cleric of Pelor ? Oh, and a Jinni wizard with a rabbit familiar ? "

" Yup. "

" Riiiight ... boot to the head, all of yas!! "
