This opens up the ability to create rulesets and GUMSHOE OGL based modules for Fantasy Grounds.

GUMSHOE is an investigation based system that removes the random nature of whether the PCs find or miss clues based on the result of a die roll. Of course, what the players do with the clues is still up to them. There are a number of games released based on the GUMSHOE system: The Esoterrorists, Trail of Cthulhu, Ashen Stars, Night’s Black Agents, Mutant City Blues, and Fear Itself.

Lorefinder is certainly an interesting take for an investigative focused task system for Pathfinder.

I'm not sure if Lorefinder is included in this new OGL from Pelgrane Press though - there is no mention of it in either their OGL or Creative Commons license.

Whereas the Lorefinder book included the OGL on the back page, only the section on drives (p12-14 of the Lorefinder book) were released as open content (plus the reproduced material in the document that is already open content).
