Year Zero Engine

Thu 26 Sep 2019, 16:53

Hello all,
when Forbidden Lands Kickstarter ended (I came too late to pledge it) there was a stretch goal about an OGL for the Year Zero Engine.

In May I've read about the pdf released for backers (unluckily not being a backer I could not read the update) and hoped for an imminent released to the public.

Four months later I haven't found any uopdate about the OGL status, nor any release date, open beta or similar.

Can someone point me to the latest news about this OGL?
I'd like to read them and try to convert some of my homebrewed settings to it.

You haven't missed anything, they're still putting the finishing touches on it. If you want access, please email support@frialigan.se and they might just give you access.

Hi!

The OGL is up and available for use, here. We just haven't been spreading the word about it just yet, as we're waiting for the finishing touches on our community content program. You're fine to use the OGL already though. :)

Why does your OGL say it is copyright of Wizard of the Coast?

Because the original OGL was created by WOTC in 2000 - They created it.

Hi,
I've got two questions
When final version is expected?
Would you mind if I translate OGL to polish and put it on my blog?

I have a question on YZE OGL: the engine is the base system, but can a specific rule by another game be used under the OGL?
Example: I’m interested in using the action rules of Coriolis (with the Action Points), instead of base action mechanic. It is possible?

I add another example: can I use the “Dark between the Stars” rule, slightly modified and renamed?
