Multiple RPG Book Releases"). Paizo plans to remove the remnants of the OGL from its rules in the Remastered book, meaning, as I understand it, characters will still have ethical beliefs but not alignments nor will they have numerical attributes for characteristics. Instead, player characters will have a +3 strength or a -2 wisdom since players generally refer to the bonus given by the statistic number rather than to the statistic itself.
