Etherscope

Just spotted a new game coming out later this year which White Wolf will be sourcing which really got me excited. It's by a company called Malladin's Gate Press, which up to now has been a PDF only enterprise.

Here's the blurb:
In 1876, Harold Wallace discovered something that changed the world: Etherspace.

Now, Etherspace serves as a new frontier of discovery, as Punk Scape riders fight evil industrialists, occult investigators war against Etherscape demons, Mysterious System agents lurk in the shadows, and treasure-hunters raid Lemurian ruins for last secrets. Jack in, scope up, and get ready, because the options for Etherscope adventures in a land of intrigue, industry, and imperialism are endless! Etherscope is a Victorian-themed world with a rich cyberpunk overtown.

Then three letters ruined it for me - OGL.

Damnit. Will probably still pick up a copy though to see if the ideas and background are any good.

Aw.... not OGL! What a terrible waste! Apart from that it sounds awesome. I may have to get it anyway. *deep sigh*

I think everybody is getting tired of seeing OGL stamped on all the cool sounding products now. Hell I was from day one.

Exactly what I was thinking.
However, there are very good writers out there who would struggle coming up with their own ingenious system so using an exising one is kind of understandable. If that system were any good, the concept would be brilliant.

One thing though. OGL doesn't have to mean they are using the D20 system? Surely they could be doing their own system and releasing it under an Open Gaming Licence?
Which owuld be nice.

Nah, it's d20 by another name. Malladin's Press/Goodman Games and Sword & Sorcery are all firmly d20/OGL companies.
