Obsidian/the publisher same difference as it related to my point. As they nor any publisher they are working with holds the D&D lic. For my point I didn't think I needed to be anal about it as people would understand what I meant. As most people do not understand the difference between publisher and developer so didn't feel the need to get into a lot of details that had nothing to do with my core point.
