I believe the term for it is called "vague booking" or something. Making unsubstantiated statements in the hope that enough people will believe you to have the desired effect. Given the almost universal pushback (and the fact that out of the entire RPG industry only one company keeps taking this stance), I don't think it's working.Carew said:So what does Jeff of Chaosium mean when he said on 28 march on the BRP SRD thread: "If you think the Legend OGL is "cast-iron", then you are fooling yourself. Heck, on the face of it, the very license used is invalid."?soltakss said:They have clarified that the Legend OGL is perfectly valid.
Back to Legend, another thing I've come to realise because of this furore is just how pervasive Legend has beome as the D100 OGL of choice - Delta Green, Revolution D100, OpenQuest (though still waiting for D101's update?), Open Cthulhu - possibly more. Even I am looking at it again, and I have my own D100 systems in the works - but there are some things I may prefer to do with Legend, for the simple reason that the OGL was designed to do - to produce content that can be taken and expanded upon by others with no oversight from me.
