From PCGen

Introduction

Here we will keep a list or requests for new sources. Once a source has been picked up and is being worked on it will be removed from here and moved to New Data Source Development issue tracking system where its progress can be tracked. Keep in mind that this will happen only if a volunteer has taken a fancy to the source and has started working on it.

Permissions

Also just because a source is requested does not mean it can or will ever make it into PCGen, the source must be Open Game Content for this to happen (or we have to gain explicit permission, see [Permissions] for the permissions we do have, both for the data sets requested below and others).

Why is book <X> not included in PCGen?

There are a few possible causes for this situation and the explanation hold true for both datasets that have never been in PCGen and some which have been in PCGen but were removed.

  1. If the book is closed content, then we may not have permission from the publisher, or may not have permission to include enough data to allow the data to be useful to our users.
  2. If the book if partially or completely OGL content, then we still require permission from the publisher because the publisher name and book title are both trademarks. Under the OGL, we require permission to use those to identify the source of the data. We believe if we cannot identify the source of the data, then the value to PCGen users is lost (how do you find the data?), so we will not include a dataset for that source.
  3. It is possible that PCGen does not have the features to support a sufficient amount of the data from a given source, and thus is not included in our production release (or is included as an alpha source)

If you find we are unable to publish data for a source you are interested in, you may wish to contact the publisher directly to express your interest in having a dataset for PCGen available (either a free one distributed by PCGen or a commercial dataset distributed by the publisher or a third party).
