Re: Compatible with.....

I'm not sure I follow. Clause seven is true, for what it's worth, but it doesn't apply to anything in the Year Zero Engine document, because nothing in that document is Product Identity (it says as much explicitly at the bottom).

Re: Compatible with.....

Relevant - the Year Zero Engine, released under the OGL, declares the entire document to be open gaming content. The names of Fria Ligan games (e.g. "Forbidden Lands") are not declared to be product identity, nor are they registered trademarks. So as far as I can tell, the restrictions in section 7 ...

Re: Compatible with.....

I am aware that a lot of products say “compatible with the worlds greatest/oldest/most popular RPG” rather that naming Dungeons and Dragons.

Re: Compatible with.....

Again I am no lawyer, but you have two courses available to you. You use the Year Zero Engine OGL, without mentioning Forbidden Lands compatibility, and without using any of the Trade Dress of FL, or, you approach Free League and negotiate a licence agreement.  I find there's lots of uncertainty ab...

Re: Compatible with.....

I'm looking into publishing a product that's compatible with Forbidden Lands, but I can't use an OBS community content program, the terms are too broad.

Re: Open Game License info

Hi! The OGL is ready and available here . We haven't made a big announcement yet, but you're welcome to use it. Thanks, Tomas, that's clear. In terms of producing a bestiary of additional creatures for Forbidden Lands, a few questions: Q1: Is there any more information on use of language such as, "...
