    Paradox / White Wolf can't seem to get their act together. Modiphius has taken over publishing, as far as I understand.

    It will probably never be "sanctioned", but it doesn't have to be. You cannot copyright rules. As for when it comes out... 2-3 months ago they said on stream that it wasn't far off. Soooooo.....

    Modiphius is publishing, if they ever say they are working on the ruleset take it with a grain of salt.

    Just go with whatever the community has for now.

    As for people saying you cannot copyright rules, maybe not in your country but you absolutely can in mine.

    Well, given that SmiteWorks is headquartered and this website is hosted (I think) in the USA, those are generally the laws that matter. The general legal consensus supported by multiple US court judgements indicate that game mechanics themselves can not be protected under US Copyright law. Now, with anything legal, their are always differing opinions, but their is significant case law supporting this view. For instance, see;
    https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/...yright_law.php

    Also, the US Copyright office states " Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed" And you can delve more into what they mean by that here; https://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ01.pdf

    And there is a well cited article on wikipedia here; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_...#Legal_aspects

    Hello! Definitely interested to see if there is something like this in the works here.

    Been running a game for awhile now and I'm eager to see if there are other players about that I can bounce ideas off of.

    I'd also be interested in a 5th edition rules set.

    Any update on the ruleset? About to start running an online game.

    I found on the internet two screenshot from the reference manual, so I presume the progress is quite good, but who is doing the ruleset and when it will be available - I have no idea...

    Seems like they are working on creating a purchaseable version of the 5th edtion book. Which is cool. But getting such things through can take a long time, and I wish the base ruleset would be released right now. MoreCore is servicable, but I suspect the actual ruleset would be a lot better. I would still buy the 5th edition module if the ruleset and module was seperate. I mean. D&D does that.

    Pretty please?
