4 Winds Fantasy Gaming announced today its intentions to publish tabletop fantasy roleplaying game books and supplements under the terms of the Open Gaming License (OGL) from Wizards of the Coast and the Pathfinder Compatibility License from Paizo.
“The Pathfinder Compatibility License is a great opportunity for us,” said 4 Winds Fantasy Gaming co-owner Robert Thomson. “The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game from Paizo is being published under the OGL, continuing the legacy of the 3.5 version of the world’s most popular roleplaying game in new and interesting ways. Our books will add options and new material to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and help that legacy continue to grow well into the future.”
4 Winds Fantasy Gaming co-owner Connie Thomson said, “The Pathfinder Compatibility License means we will be able to market our products created for use with the upcoming Pathfinder Roleplaying Game with the Pathfinder Compatibility logo on the covers, which will bring more visibility to our products, and give others playing the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game new options for their own games.”
“We are very grateful to Paizo for introducing the Pathfinder Compatibility License,” added Robert Thomson. “It allows us to create and publish material for the game we love.”
4 Winds Fantasy Gaming intends to publish their first product – The Book of Arcane Magic – in September 2009, with The Book of Divine Magic following in October. The current publishing schedule then calls for one book per month for the next several months.
