      Details:

      I'm one of that people still playing the old D&D game,
      the one with red (basic), blue (expert) and other
      boxes. Could you insert it in your software? The OD&D
      characer generator system is very simple (few classes
      and parameters). Thank you in advance.

      Thank you amaitland, I'm giving a look, it may be very useful.

      I know this is an old tracker. But I think OSRIC ("Old School Reference &
      Index Compilation") might fit the bill. It's released under the OGL. It's
      possible to accomplish this without to much trouble... Although the
      features in 6.2+ would help a lot, I don't see much hampering this being
      created now.

      It's not going to happen until 6.2+, PCGen needs to convert to the new
      CDOM/Plugin system (6.0) before we could even consider this. Very sorry to
      disappoint!

      Any news about implementing the OD&D characters?

      I'm unassigning myself from this, as this is a low priority
      issue.

      Don't worry, I can understand that priority

      Oh, well in that case this is a code freq first, shifting.
      I'll also be brutally honest here, this will not be a
      priority until 6.0 at the earliest. My apologies for this,
      but PCGen is aimed at the 3.0/3.5 rulesets and we have many
      other feature requests to complete for those rulesets before
      looking at other game systems. That said, any code monkey
      who feels keen can tackle this anytime

      That's right tir-gwaith. It would be very useful, there's
      still a lot of people that love and play the classic D&D
      edition (my group is currently playing X1 adventure ).
      Thank you!

      Not what the request actually is (he plays 1st ed, Red and
      Blue). He's wanting generator support for that old system.
      While the mechanics are simple, to accomplish this request,
      we'd need WotC permission and we'd need to be able to
      accomplish the 1st ed rules.

      Totally agree, I know you always contact publishers as a
      matter of course, darn good practice that

      No, it isn't d20 based. To keep it as-is would require
      WotC's permission. However, the ESD allows the conversion
      of mechanics up to 3.0/3.5 rules. I still think WotC should
      be approached regardless.

      Paul, is this d20 based? We're going to struggle otherwise.
      Anyhow, can you set one of the PL monkeys to go get
      permission please .

      To get OD&D in, we'd need to get permission from WotC. I'm
      dropping this in priority, because of this, and moving it
      over to data requests.
