On Saturday, I asked this:When asked, I had a hard time explaining exactly what I meant.
Why are the works that purport to be "publishing enablers" all written, laid out, and presented as if they were games in and of themselves?
If the idea is to present a game, fair enough. If the idea is to allow third party products of a specific flavor, shouldn't they be made up of lists and "how-to" guides?
And now the GSL for the new Wizards of the Coast Fantasy Game has been released. And that SRD, that's what I meant. If someone puts one of those together, in that format (using the OGL of course, and not this back-door kill-the-competition GSL) for traditional gaming instead of writing a whole game, I think we'd be in happyland.
