  1. I think you missed my point entirely. 👍 Edit: Just so snark isn't feeding snark, let me elaborate. Mechanic: Roll [x] dice against [y] skill; result +/- point pool. Terse Language: Roll 2d10 against Mental Coping skill. If success, Mental Health is unaffected. If failure, deduct 1d4 from Mental Health. If I want to publish a work, I can use whatever mechanic I want. I cannot use same or very similar language as something else (copyright). If I want to publish a work under the BRP license, I can still use whatever mechanic I want. I cannot use language that is not "
  2. Sure you can! I do it all the time. In fact, that is the exact same mechanic used for hit points, magic points, etc. The mechanic itself is not protectable, however the language describing how it is used is. So if the language you are using to describe the mechanic is not "substantially different" from "Sanity", it may violate the t&c's of the license, in which case just don't use the license and do what you want. If you are actually using the same or very similar language to describe the mechanic, that would be copyright infringement (don't do this). My ultimate point i
  3. If Chaosium really wanted to pull a brilliant move, they would revise the BGB, maybe slim it down a little, remove anything they want to protect as IP (Sanity, etc.) and release the entire thing as the official SRD. Given that it's a toolkit in nature anyway, it makes sense. They could even sell a printed version of it which might spark new interest in the universal BRP system. Maybe even god forbid work on the long-awaited phantom follow up volume as an extension. As for prohibited content, (i.e. Sanity) I don't see what the big deal is really. You can have the exact same mechanic
  4. Alright this seems promising. Full disclosure: when it comes to works that are out of print and either too expensive or simply not for sale legally anywhere the temptation to download and use those illegal PDFs is high. 've seen those PDFs of Worlds of Wonder. They are not high quality and parts of the original Magic World are simply missing. I would much rather have a high quality and legal PDF. If this can be somewhat of a loyal fan team effort then @Vile I can take your scans and do the rest of the work. (Full text file and high quality imagery). @Rick Meints w
  5. I fully understand that I am part of a very small and overall unprofitable club for the company to cater to. That being said this news confirms that there are no known products on the horizon that I am interesting in buying. (Was holding out for BRPE) The only other thing I'd be interested in is World of Wonders, in any possible format (pdf, POD, reprinted new edition, etc.) The only copies I can find for sale are around $100. Alternatively if anyone is interested in selling me their copy at a reasonable price please contact me.
  6. Yep. To paraphrase someone else "Magic World is Stormbringer with all the Morcockisms stripped out." Personally I'd call that a feature. If I recall correctly it seems that trying to work with Morcock and using his IP proved to be a major headache for Chaosium. Still, if the plan is to bring Stormbringer back, the first step would be to remove/de-emphasize MW. I agree that the Stormbringer brand is more marketable than generic MW, however. Still hoping for that Worlds of Wonder reissue.
  7. @MOB Thank you for such prompt replies. It's good to see that coming from Chaosium. I suppose I'll try to get in touch with the authors to find out their plans on said material.
  8. It's good to know the piece on religion will be available in some way. I'll keep my eye out for that. Otherwise I'm mostly interested in expanded allegiances and all the material about the Southern Reaches. To me this is like a repeat of the Nentir Vale Gazeteer.
  9. Ah, I was under the impression that Chronicler's Companion was to be an official Chaosium product and Chaosium owned the rights to it. Am I correct to understand the rights will now belong solely to the author who will have the opportunity to release the material how they see fit? Either as a licensed product of their own or as fan fiction? If CC wasn't written by Chaosium or an employee, who was the author(s)?
  10. Any chance Chaosium would be willing to release the "Chronicler's Companion" (as is) as a consolation prize? I realize it isn't a finished product; I don't care. I've been waiting two years for it. Seems like a waste to just never release it or rework it for some other product line. It was written for Magic World and the Southern Reaches. It would really be awesome if Chaosium made it available to Magic World fans somehow.

  13. Miami Vice, 21 Jump Street, TMNT, Thundercats, Stargate, G.I. Joe (like the 80's cartoon) (I know those are more settings than specific characters, but still awesome worlds to play in. Fairly easy to adapt to BRP, which is why I love BRP, lol.)
