Update on the Compatibility Issue…

To follow up to yesterday’s thoughts about that the lack of an STL is going to mean for publishers trying to demonstrate compatibility —

Scott Rouse posted a comment on ENWorld where he says:

We are looking to incorporate some sort of compatibility language within the new version of the OGL. Something like “Compatible with the 4th Edition of the Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying game…”

Which would take care of the problem quite nicely.

He’s still ignoring the multiple posted questions about WHEN the publishers will see the rules…. to the point where it is now obvious that he’s doing so. The pessimistic side of me has the sinking feeling that is right, and that the answer is going to be “when the books are released.”
