comment Degenesis: Original rules vs Rebirth rules
The irony with the Hellvetics is the fact that they insist on using their really expensive 5.56mm ammunition. They can fire buckshot from the Trailblazer, which would actually be cost-effective (and the best shotgun in the core rulebook), but they really like bullets that cost a week's wages.

comment How can I preserve medieval transportation tropes for the PCs in a world with travel magic?
I'd be careful to impose any rules that could kill players too readily, especially in a game like Pathfinder that is generally averse to that. The downside of fatigue and exhaustion is that it puts a lot of bookkeeping on players and GMs, but also that it diminishes the effect of magic: magic that requires the same amount of effort as just doing the thing normally isn't really magic.

Also, keep in mind that killing players for attempting something they assume to be effective is generally frowned upon by players, if not some GMs. Flight is not the only traveling magic that can be difficult to work with.

My only gripe with this answer is that high-level characters may be part of the appeal to some people, but otherwise I like it.

comment Is it legal to design and publish a game with D&D's ability scores?
Copyright is intellectual property law. Copyright, trademarks, and patents are the three "intellectual property" schools. The attributes aren't specifically reserved as not OGL, and WoTC has indeed licensed their game under the OGL. Using OGL content involves including a copy of the OGL to make the terms and conditions clear, whether or not your own game is OGL. I'm not sure where you're going with this.

Bah, did too much editing on this and couldn't edit my old comment: In any case, the three ways to "access" these things are licensing, fair use/praying it's not copyright protected, or prima facie infringement. While I'm not sure you could get sued over six words, if WoTC took offense to something else, they might be able to use those six words to point out the derivative nature of a work.

The question contains excerpts from the OGL, including a big chunk at top. I updated the question to reflect the actual use of the OGL, which is surprisingly non-viral for something that cites the GPL as its inspiration.
