UPDATE: Draft 1.1 is now in the folder.
Rules systems cannot be copyrighted, only their arrangement, order or phrasing. As such, to preserve the future of a ‘common tongue’ of roleplaying games, I have spent time since the OGL announcement modifying and producing (with help) a genericised version of the ‘Rosetta Stone’ of roleplaying games. It is not complete by any means and is not meant to be a playable game in and of itself, but it lays out concepts and common gaming heritage so as to allow people to continue to write and create without hindrance – hopefully.
If you think anything needs adding, find any errors or notice any outstanding IP or TM that hasn’t been excised, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and title the email PANZA [Title]. I am actively soliciting your feedback and contributions.

This draft has not yet been properly edited, expediency being more important at present.

This took a couple of weeks to do, which I didn’t really have spare. If you’re so inclined to help out you can do so here: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/jdesborough
