Fan Policy

Fan Policy

Postby DesignMechanism » Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:55 am

Lots of people want to share their love of, and enthusiasm for, RuneQuest with the wider world. They want to use blogs and websites to show what they're doing, how they're doing it, and support RQ from a fan perspective.

We absolutely encourage fan involvement, but there are a few things that you need to be aware of before starting a blog or a website dedicated to RuneQuest.

1. RuneQuest is a Trademark and an intellectual property. Design Mechanism licenses the trademark from Moon Design Publications but does not own it.

2. This means that any fan works must abide by the Fan Policy established by Moon Design Publications for both Glorantha and RuneQuest materials. The Fan Policy is described in detail at http://glorantha.wpengine.com/glorantha ... an-policy/ and we urge you to read this before you start work on any fan material that will be placed on the internet or distributed in any form or means. Its actually a very simple, very generous Fan Policy and carries very little restriction.

If you have any questions please don't be afraid to ask us. We want to encourage the wider RQ Community but it has to be done in a certain way to ensure that trademarks and so forth are respected.

Yes. Doubly so for Glorantha which, with the Guide to Glorantha, has now been comprehensively mapped in some quite astonishing detail.

Please consult with Moon Design Publications (www.glorantha.com) before posting any fan created maps.

Okay I've been playing RuneQuest quite a bit on roll20 i'm about to start a Korantia campaign what's the proper way to handle player handouts. For normal tabletop games having a Xerox copy of some maps out of let's say Monster Island would not be a problem. Are there different rules for electronic tabletop gaming? For me sharing out a map around the table. Feels a lot different from sharing that Map as player handout on roll20.

As long as the map isn't made public and its for personal gaming use, then there's no problem.
