View Full Version : Which Domains are Useable Under OGL?

Hey all:

I'm continuing work on a 3.5 inspired system, with a few major changes. One of those changes is a major shift in spellcasting: Spellcasters are no longer divided into arcane or divine. All casters gain access to Symbols (Domains) that determine which spells you gain access to (symbols also determine which rituals you can use -- more powerful rituals require multiple symbols to get off).

My question is, which domains can I use under OGL?

Also, would you say that, overall, domains are evenly split between arcane and divine spells?

Many thanks

Not sure about OGL, but this link to the SRD (http://www.systemreferencedocuments.org/resources/systems/pennpaper/dnd35/soveliorsage/divineDomains.html) will give you plenty that are SRD approved...

Its surprisingly few domains listed in the SRD -- fewer than are in the PHB, I think.

Just because it's in a web supplement does not mean it's OGL... unless Wizards released it under the OGL, it's still their copyrighted material. It's just more available.

That said, a list of domains from www.d20srd.org


Under "Spell Lists and Domains"
* Air Domain
* Animal Domain
* Chaos Domain
* Death Domain
* Destruction Domain
* Earth Domain
* Evil Domain
* Fire Domain
* Good Domain
* Healing Domain
* Knowledge Domain
* Law Domain
* Luck Domain
* Magic Domain
* Plant Domain
* Protection Domain
* Strength Domain
* Sun Domain
* Travel Domain
* Trickery Domain
* War Domain
* Water Domain

In "Divine Rules" under "Additional Domains, Spells and Divine Minions"

* Artifice Domain
* Charm Domain
* Community Domain
* Creation Domain
* Darkness Domain
* Glory Domain
* Liberation Domain
* Madness Domain
* Nobility Domain
* Repose Domain
* Rune Domain
* Scalykind Domain
* Weather Domain

And then there's stuff from 3rd party publishers, if you're inclined to use it. In those cases, you would need to check the OGL declaration of each product, but generally speaking mechanics are good and fluff (including proper names) is bad. That's just a generalization, however.

Good catch. Was almost positive I missed one.

I'm suprised no one has said this:
One you write yourself (C) :smallsmile:

Homebrew is not released under the Open Gaming License, unless the writer does it on purpose (I'm not sure why they would, though).

Homebrew always belongs to its author.

That, my friend, is why no one said it.
