While I agree with you about what the loss of all of non-SRD WotC
sources would mean to PCGen. I have to defend some of the others. I
think your taking what they said a bit wrong. It boils down to the
fact that only those that are in the negotiations with WotC can
really say what is going on. And only they can have a direct effect
on the talks.
For us we need to be patient and wait. They are not doing this half
assed. Their working hard. Pushing for the best results for PCGen.
All we can do is send thank you e-mails to Anthony V and various
other sundry WotC managers thanking them for the help they have given
us up to this point. You do realize that they didn't have to do any
of this. They could of sicked their lawyers on us and that would
have been the end of PCGen.
Going on and on about what ifs is not going to change anything. All
it will do is inflame people. So just sit back and chill until we
get the final answer from WotC.
