Fantasy Craft is an OGL product. Doesn’t the OGL already let me make Fantasy Craft products?
While it’s true that much of Fantasy Craft is available through the OGL, the intellectual property and trade dress is not. Also, note that Section 7 of the OGL states: “You agree not to indicate compatibility or co-adaptability with any Trademark or Registered Trademark in conjunction with a work containing Open Game Content except as expressly licensed in another, independent Agreement with the owner of such Trademark or Registered Trademark.” The Powered by Licenses are perfect examples of “independent Agreements” with us, allowing you to use the special “Powered by” logos and say your products are compatible with ours.
