I'm looking for open RPGs to play with my group. By "open-content" I mean games that are licensed similar to open-source software—everyone is allowed to get and modify the game and release the result.

The background is that I don't want to rely too much on a system that might die if its creator drops it for whatever reason. If a game is open-content, I and any community that is interested in it can work on it to keep it alive, at least as long as the campaign runs.

So I would appreciate any listing of such games to pick some from for playing.

The Year of Living Free wiki is stuffed with great games using various licenses.

There is a list of open-content games at Wikipedia. It's not a complete list, but there are enough systems there to keep one group busy for several years.

John Kim’s various lists are fairly comprehensive. He has one for open gaming.

RPG.net has a Wiki entry for open content games here

imPresa Express is missing from that list, link here
