So... A DND friend is trying to turn STGOD into a 'real' game

Ok so...Yeah, hear me out on this.

About two months ago, I was talking to a friend of mine who is a HARD CORE DND player as well as overall "Numbers" nerd, who designs games in his spare time. I was waxing wistfully about the Good Ol Days of our STGOD's, how they worked and how free and liberating they were for Role Play purposes. Well, as I said that was about Two months ago.
Two days ago, I get an email from him with this google-Doc link:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tnY ... sp=sharing

It was apparently a "Work in progress" of a what he says is a marketable version of the STGOD concept... AND IT'S OVER THIRTY PAGES LONG!!!
Not sure if he is missing the concept of our free spirited game. But was damned impress with what he is laying out!

Have you checked he is ok with you sharing it?

Oh yeah I probably;y should mention that.
Yeah part of why he shared it with me in the first place was specifically to share it here to get peoples opinions of it.
He wanted to make sure no one would feel like he was stealing their ideas.
