Sensible enough, and surely there can be all sorts of liberties taken as this gets further crafted.  I've always moreso fancied the idea of Avatars of Whatever, allowing for Deities and such to directly contribute to any class in various ways as opposed to a strictly Fighter/Cleric relationship---if even Divine in nature as opposed to Arcane/Infernal/etc.

As to OGL Pantheon wranglings, it seems there have been some that have tried to go down this road before---the most likely, though not necessarily ideal as such---and whose website may actually have even MORE stuff of use otherwise for Veins:

So...yeah, hope that all helps.

Thanks, the links are very helpful.

Anyways, we're now at 0.0.9 (beta 2.25).

Feel free to leave me feedback to read when I'm back after the weekend!

Happy to be of some help---I'd have thought I had all manner of OGL links accounted for back at the start of the lot of this and yet here we are with my digging about bookmarks and such.

Heh, you've certainly got a nice assortment of things to source from at this stage even aside from all the ongoing projects getting Kickstarted and whatnot.   :D

A forthcoming OGL just barely squeaking past the stretch goal to make it so this morning, but while this one isn't D&D OGL---something tells me what will eventually come of it may indeed have some appeal and use in Veins and whatnot:

Thanks for the link.

I've just pushed 0.0.9a out and I really need to know whether money and magic properties do spawn, or I'm just getting unlucky, or maybe I should increase the numbers in the generator?

Aaaand we're at beta 2.5!

The stuff listed for beta 3 is pretty complex, so don't be disappointed if getting there takes some time.

Cool!  Other links that came to mind that may or may not be of any useful sourcing use:

http://www.gratisgames.webspace.virginmedia.com/darkdungeons.html  Dark Dungeons and/or the Darker version in the Extras section

Thanks getter.

I've killed a bug which was affecting the bard class, so now you can take v.0.0.11 out for a spin.

404 Link not found when clicking the "released" link from the main Roguebasin listing, though the link over in the Announcements board thread works fine.

Another potential OGL bit, Dungeon Crawl Classics:

And this ongoing thing, a seemingly comprehensive second look at the whole of spells and spellcasting:

Thanks for the link to the spell reformation (sounds similar to the streamlining I planned to do).

... and another one.

The random name generator, in addition to being cool in and out of itself, should fix the weird engine problem some players reported, of not being able to enter the name when prompted.

I just released a hotfix to fix bugged monster stats.
