It's difficult to be certain because of the entanglement of the two
licen= ses (the Open Gaming License and the d20 System License), but
as I read them you could use the basic game systems as defined in
the "System Reference Document" even for interactive games.


But you wouldn't be able to *say* that you were using the d20
system, or were compatible with it. Peculiar, and perhaps it would
make using the sy= stem worthless to you, but perhaps not.
