    I will be waiting for the game to come out in 15 years. I assume that at least a third of this content will be a romance quests.

    The only character that fights while pregnant, and gives birth right in the middle of the game.

    Plus, she's blonde. Truly, every Aryan's German's dream come true :D

    It is better looking than most german women. I still remember my youthful days when the only free porn on the tv was german. Most of the german porn stars were pretty fat.

    Please please let players enter turn based combat at will (and give initiative bonus if enemies didn't see players like in case of using a stealth character that scouts ahead) and don't force move players into some arena or similar shitty design (like AoD) but instead let it work like Fallout 1/2 where you just stay where you are.

    I've answered this before in this thread I think: you can attack anyone at any time, including civilians. There are no encounters where you're teleported into a bad position, we're not going to take away the player's control like that. If you're ambushed, you'll stay in the position you're in, not teleported into the middle of the ambush or - even worse - watch your characters walk forward in a cutscene even though you know there's gonna be an ambush and wouldn't do it if you were in control.

    That kind of thing is just extremely cheap, and something that would never happen in a P&P RPG. Force-moving players to make your encounters spicier is bad encounter design. Laying out an ambush that the player is unlikely to discover and will probably walk into on his own, but allowing the player to spot the ambush if he's diligent, that's good encounter design.

    JarlFrank I want to know whether this system is protected by copyright, if it was paid by the previous publisher, etc.

    There are some limitations/requirements to use the license that I’m guessing they don’t want to deal with.

    Also, this is D&D 3.5, which is pretty old, so I’m not surprised that a wanna be AAA studio like OE wouldn’t use it. Not sure if 4th or 5th edition have an OGL.

    EDIT: Knights of the Chalice used this license. Also, the Pathfinder system uses this license.

    Anything it is better than that. Imagine how many hours they would save if they had implemented this system.

    Yes, basically this.

    The OGL-SRD license is the D&D 3.5 ruleset which has been made open source by WotC. It's the same license Knights of the Chalice used, for example, or that Chinese D&D game Low Magic Age is using.

    You're free to use all the basic rules that have been made open source by WotC, which includes some prestige classes and additional rules from supplement books, and you can even change the ruleset with house-rules to your heart's content (like we're using hexes instead of squares, and we're thinking of adding some form of high ground bonus, etc).

    This does not include any copyrighted creatures such as beholders and illithids, but it does include all generic monsters such as orcs, goblins, gnolls, dragons etc which you can freely copy from the old monster manuals.

    I’m not quite sure why you’re reacting so strangely to the idea of an OGL.
