Nope. D&D Beyond may have been the first, but it was never exclusive and Roll 20 just announced their character generator/manager: Charactermancer

A character manager without leveling based on the SRD is your proof?

SRD AND the Players Handbook (if you buy Roll 20s digital version of the PHB).

So, yes. It is proof that WoTC is licensing their official content to companies making digital character sheets other than D&D Beyond.

Technically Fantasy Grounds has a character manager with leveling too if we're counting character managers or vaults.

FG's character leveling process is clunky and sometimes requires some knowledge of their scripting but it is there and characters are stored either on the DM's copy (if he has Ultimate) and/or the player's if they have a licensed version (Standard).

So, the argument that DDB is the only "official" or "licensed" character manager has been wrong for a long time. Same goes for the PHB, you can purchase the full text of the PHB from FG and it's nicely indexed.

So, except for licensing agreements, both RW and HL could have full 5e licensing if WotC would agree to it.

DM'ing since 1984's red box. Pretending to slay dragons for a long time before.

I am incredibly grateful for that and thrilled to be moving forward again in any capacity. It won't happen overnight, but I have my fingers crossed we will see the Content Market in time for Gen Con.
Hey BJ,

Now that Gen Con has arrived, can you give us another little update on where the Content Market is at if possible?

Thanks!

Might have to wait until a few days after the con, when they've all had time to catch their breath.

But why??

I hate that I couldn't go this year, especially when I live here.

Anyone else at Gen Con who has heard of any announcements?

No need to catch breath. either they have a date or they dont. Nothing more necessary in the post.

LWD never gives updates until we make noise first. I’m at Gen Con and went by the booth. It was busy so I didn’t talk to any LWD people. There was a RW sign up along with all their other products but I didn’t see anything else. The focus was totally on HLO and the pathfinder playtest. I haven’t been to any of the LWD seminars though. Is anyone really surprised by there being no announcement though? I will say I’m jealous of the HLO aesthetics. I looks slick, while RW looks 20 years old. I know we want function, but firm matters too. I almost wish they would just come clean and admit RW is harder to pull off than they thought and that it has been put on the back burner. Yes there would be an outcry and some us will not be buying from them again, but the current state may be worse for them and us.

The product is not "hard to pull off". It is actually a pretty finished software and I am very happy by its current state, knowing what kind of disaster it could have been, if the funding ran out in the middle, not in the end.

Yeah, I might be on the desperation track now... Hope dies last.

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.
