    I don't know, I think it more likely that SJG lacks the technical department to support this AND it may very well be it is just not worth the investment.
    They may decide to do it if it's feasable but they have to invest in areas that make the most money, otherwise they could go out of business forever.

    No matter how much they might WANT to do it, even if they really really wanted to, if there isn't the base to support it, they are just falling on their own sword.
    A good leader isn't going to throw their army away on a battle they can't win.

    I voted for it, so I'm in, but I also understand that a business has to make money or it's not going to remain a business.
    Let's hope they find a way to make this worth their time and energy.

    Whether a ruleset gets developed in Fantasy grounds is usually down to there being an skilled developer. In the case of GURPS this exists, the ruleset is excellent and better than some of the paid rulesets released on for Fantasy Grounds. The cost for SJG for a official ruleset would be down to overseeing the licence and providing the files to developers which isn't a huge expense though the actual ruleset may not be enough to generate profit to half a days wages for someone at SJG to oversee the GURPS on FG Personally I think that is SJG loss and that we have a supported ruleset that supports imports from GCA and GCS so its pretty easy to run GURPS on Fantasy Grounds. Saying that though it would be nice if the current developer got some compensation for all of their efforts over the last few years

    I think the primary thing GURPS fans would like from SJG is to officially support the ruleset with content to make games easier to run. It would be great to have the primary GURPS books (with traits, skills, spells, items, etc) available in FG itself.

    Official or not, I will keep developing the ruleset for as long as I need it to play GURPS, and I plan to be playing until the end of time. :P But, it would be nice if SJG would support the community with official content.
