what rules are you using? if you use any set of the wizards rules and don't own the book, you're kinda in trouble.

AW c'mon Paul, let him have some fun ;). Besides, he could also have made his own rules. :)

No, it's about Copyright and liscencing. It is Wizards of the Coast Property and how I use it in my game is one thing, by using it or making your own violates their rights and if they sniff you out the "bosses will do terrible things...terrible things :P"

But as I said, he could also have made his OWN rules.

For someone who claims he doesn't care, you seem awfully concerned, paul. Why the sudden interest?

You would first of all be using something that I adapted and that I have bought rights to use. Second thing is that you can't create your own RPG of Star Wars. Wizards of the Coast is the only entity that can do that.

If you still don't understand that, then anything you've said about your pictures for the Project are well hypocritical.

Heres the deal, if he changes the rules around then technically they arent the same rules, and if he isnt making a profit who gives a damn?

I am not going to debate with you paul, your simply not worth it.

But, a few basic things you have missed:

1: Making changes to any RPG rules system is a time honored tradition, in fact, it is encourged in most circles, to the point of chucking the core rules if the GM feels the need to. And if I use my own rules, I don't know any company that would waste the money trying to suppress that. This isn't for profit, merely fun.
2: Everything you have sent me is availble on more than a dozen fan sites. One version is just about the same as another, taking #1 into consideration, of course. If they wanted to 'shut me down', you would be next in line.
3: Copywrite infringment? You have whole sections of the core rulebook on your site. And, the same thing appears on fan sites for what ever game you may have. It is very wide spread, to the point of fan produced suplliments and adventures, along with gear and ideas/things moved from one game system to another. If I wrote up a rancor for Battletech or Shadowrun and put it on my site, would WotC or Fasa take me to court? I very much doubt it.

And lastly, I never said I was the GM.

Are you feeling threatened paul? Or just looking for some attention?
