I would still buy the 5th edition module if the ruleset and module was seperate. I mean. D&D does that.

    Pretty please?
    A lot of things will impact the decision to do this - publisher agreements, developer agreements, etc.. D&D 5E was released, with no material, way before their was an official agreement and was created by SmiteWorks developers. 2E was built heavily on this - hence one of the reasons to release it for "free". For Vampire, the ruleset will pretty much have to be written from the ground up (although based on CoreRPG, there will still need to be a lot of RPG mechanics coded and created) and so a lot of development time will be needed. I'm assuming this is being done by community developers, and as such they rely on commission for their remuneration - which would be nothing (or very, very little) if the ruleset was released for free (assuming this is what you mean, when you say "D&D does that"). They'd then have to rely on people paying for the library modules, which would sell but probably not as well if the ruleset was included. I know that you're never going to get rich doing FG development, but then not getting much back by releasing the ruleset for free isn't going to attract many good developers. This is the model for most commercial rulesets on FG - Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, DCC, C&C, RoleMaster, etc..

    Have patience, wait for it to be released properly...

    It would be easier to be patient, if the guy working on it hadn't said that "it was rather close to completion" about 8 months ago, on stream. *grins*

    But of course I want to be be done right.

    I might be misremembering this, but is this not the ruleset that got a lot of work from a graphic artist who admitted that the ruleset was beyond his capabilities, and smiteworks put him in touch with a coder?

    Which bit was close to completion?

    I've never played VTM but if it ever came to FG I might just check it out.

    "SmiteWorks is pleased to announce that Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition Ruleset will be coming to Fantasy Grounds October 29th!"
    From newsletter, unfortunately, no newsletter with explanation of new date since it would be here today... and is not.

    I'll note that a) It's still the 29th and b) their servers are dealing with the influx of upgrade requests.

    I got the impression, that they are not sure how long the delay is. I hope not too long.
