Open Gaming & Third Parties

One of the aims of What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. is not just to allow fans and third party publishers to create and/or sell content for the games, but to encourage and actively support it.

The creation and sharing of fan and third-party content, both free and for sale, will only make the game better.

The entire Rules Reference Document on this website (with a few listed exceptions) is designated Open Gaming Content.

Third-party publishers are free to create and sell content for What's O.L.D. is N.E.W.  You can create sourcebooks, adventures, resources, expansions, and so on, and indicate compatibility.  You can also make or sell electronic applications. The license is free, and you do not need to ask permission or submit an application to use it - just make sure you understand how the Open Gaming License works and publish away!

With all that in mind, if you want to do something for which this page doesn't give explicit permission (and there isn't much you can't do!), you can always just ask!

What Can I Produce?

You can produce pretty much anything you want, for free or for profit. There's no fee, royalty, or permission required beyond the rules above.  Here are some ideas:

  • Books of weapons or equipment
  • Books of exploits or traits
  • Books of careers or races/species/heritages
  • Character creation applications and tools
  • Other generators and applications
  • Adventures and settings
  • Websites, blogs, etc.

That's just a few ideas. You can probably think of more! Here are some of the third party products we know about.
