best thing about this?  none of the annoying errata in the printed edition! 

 

...okay, and ease of setup, and multiplayer online, and beautiful design, etc. etc.

 

but especially no more annoying errata

I think they are planning to include errata as "feature" of the game... to preserve the authentic experience. For example, when you cast a spell that has been subject to errata it will begin to cast in the original format. You will then be presented with a game screen that will explain the changes in the spell that have been implemented. You will have to read the changes and sign off that you have "read and understand the changes to the spell" before the spell will go off. It's going to be a lot of fun!

Yeah, I can't see myself turning down an opportunity to play a single-player D&D 3.75 (aka Pathfinder) game on PC, so if this goes through I'll be shelling out my Kickstarter pledge right quick. Let's have it, Obsidian!

 

A card game, however... Meh, I'll pass.

Unfortunately, the Open Gaming license doesn't allow you to adapt the D20 system into a computer game. So, they would have to develop a different rule set. As amusing as it would be to see Tim Cain develop a turn-based D&D 3.75 cRPG to school the Sword Coast Legends guys, they'll have to go a different direction on whatever cRPG they decide to make. 

Unless they've got some kind of contingency I know nothing about.

Well, all I can say is that if Obsidian intends on making a Pathfinder cRPG using d20 rules they had best announce development now so they can get the lawsuit out of the way sometime by 2020. At least by that point we could have had an Eternity trilogy and nobody will question them if they take a similar direction with this license.

All they would have to do to bypass the lawsuit is a have a document attached in the game files that can easily be read that lists all the sources that they got their materials and rules and etc from and not have a Eula agreement in the game or manual or anywhere.

That's it. Reason why no one has done it yet is because the Eula agreement "protects" them from piracy in that it outright states u shall not or face penalties. And the fact which I'm not sure if they count the agreement of the places u purchase the game from and play it on (aka steam, consoles, gog, etc) counts towards that as well.

Cloud Guts Karsa Orlong called. He wants his sword back.

Never did like the work of that particular artist--too cartoonish. And the sword... :wacko:

It's possible they can use the Golarion world (aka Forgotten Realms for adults) without needing the d20 license.  Pillars of Eternity (or even Arcanum before PoE) proves they can make a game without aping any d20, but still keeping to the class based structure of basic DnD.  Wizards/Hasbro doesn't own all rulesets.

 

The pros of the Pathfinder license is it already has a HUGE mythos associated with it in Golarion.  It might not be Forgotten Realms, but personally I think it has more scope, creativity and believability than FR.

I just read through the OGL. There's nothing that bans making a game. There's also nothing that bans EULA's. The EULA just cannot put any restrictions on the Open Game Content. The issue could be skirted by simply putting "Excluding Open Game Content" or something of that sort in the EULA. Then all they would have to do is provide a copy of the SRD and any other Pathfinder rules they with the game files.
