Sorry I did not take your post that way, I just like to be clear,


I was really just happy someone knew who we were :)

What I was also pointing out is in my reading of the Pathfinder compatibility licence it does not allow for software (again I am not a lawyer).

Relevant section:

Quote:

.....to use the Compatibility Logo in printed books, electronic books, and freely available websites in connection with products that are compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game......
They can use the OGL and provide the data sets but I don't think they qualify for the Logo and therefore cannot get an early copy (again not a lawyer and could be completely and utterly wrong.)

Hey guys,

We already have two copies of the Pathfinder RPG rulebook, and we've been working on the data files for a few weeks now. We waited until everything was finalized at Paizo so that we weren't trying to hit a moving target. Once everything was nailed down, we ordered the books and got to work. Our goal is to have Pathfinder data files completed in time for the game's official release at GenCon. It's going to be tight, but we think we can do it.

FYI, Paizo accepted our request for authorization quite happily, knowing exactly what we're working on and why we wanted the copies. So I don't envision any problems with us being able to utilize the logo. That being said, we're discussing a few minor items with Paizo now to officially clear up any possible issues that could arise.

Steve, were cool! Glad there's no hard feelings.

Rob- EXCELLENT NEWS, thank you!

Well, there's another dataset I'll need to buy. :)

Will the standard d20 and the Pathfinder data sets be separate?

Yes, they will be. There are some fundamental differences within Pathfinder and, as the system evolves, those differences will simply increase over time. At that occurs, it will become harder and harder to maintain one set of data files for both game systems. So we are splitting Pathfinder off on its own in order to best support it's evolution in the years to come.

This is great news. This will be yet another ruleset I will certainly buy!

Awseome News!
 
Thank you Lone Wolf team for getting Pathfinder into your product asap. I plan on starting a campaign as soon as I get the books and having your support at my table will be invaluable.

Edit - Will we be able to preorder the dataset?

daddystabz July 15th, 2009 11:51 AM

Agreed.

Unlike some other companies, we prefer not asking people to pay for something before we can actually deliver it. We prefer just the opposite, which is why we make the demo mode available for all of our products, allowing customers to fully tinker with the product before plunking down their hard-earned cash. Consequently, we won't be accepting preorders for the Pathfinder dataset.

But you can definitely keep that money earmarked for it! :-)
