  1. As we have already stated only works related to Le Morte d’Arthur are Prohibited Content. So of course you can you go ahead and create "a setting, campaign, or adventure in a feudal realm"; in fact under this license you can even make one using King Arthur et al: To reiterate, If someone would mistake your content for material from one of the Chaosium games listed under Prohibited Content, it's not transformative. In other words, if it looks like you cut and paste material out of a published Chaosium book, then don’t do it. Otherwise the field is wide open.
  2. Answered in the Q&A thread: If it is not Prohibited Content then you are free to create your own derivative work. But note that none of the text in the BGB is Open.
  3. If it is not Prohibited Content then you are free to create your own derivative work. But note that none of the text in the BGB is Open.
  4. There is no sunset clause in the BRP OGL. Material published under any version of the License can continue to be published using the terms of that version - see clause 10.
  5. "I'm a Keeper" and "Ask me about my Cthulhu Mythos skill" - two new t-shirts in our 'Casual Wear for Cultists' range at Redbubble.nb Redbubble advises that printing and shipping is currently operating as normal.https://rdbl.co/3apuuoh
  6. Julia, our 'merc of merch' has added two more t-shirts to our CASUAL WEAR FOR CULTISTS range over at Redbubble: PULP CTHULHU HERO - https://rdbl.co/3bQerA2 INVESTIGATOR - https://rdbl.co/34dbkj4
  7. Not so - content not considered open gaming in works published under the BRP OGL is explicitly permitted by the license. The onus is on the creator to identify material that is to be considered open gaming content. There is nothing in the BRP License that obligates anyone publishing a new edition of a work to continue using the BRP License, if they want to stop using the BRP content and trademarks. A creator is always free to publish a new edition of a work with another system, in which case the BRP License no longer applies to them. Material declared Open Gaming Content in the earlier edition of a work remains Open Gaming Content, but otherwise they can remake their work with another system at will. Only if a creator wishes to publish a new work or new edition of a work under the BRP License are they are obligated to use the most recent authorized version of this License, as explained in Section 10.
  8. Yes, If someone would mistake your content for material from one of the Chaosium games listed under Prohibited Content, it's not transformative. We aren't asserting any restriction to use of mechanics in the BGB, except to the extent that they are specifically covered in Prohibited Content, like Call of Cthulhu's Sanity mechanic.
  9. 30% by total word count of the entire Work. If a book contains 30% or more new or revised text by total word count it is considered a new work for the purposes of the license.
  10. If you charge money for it you would. Or your publisher would and hopefully you would get some of that money. Chaosium takes 0% unless you need a license for Prohibited Content or we are selling it on our site or some other service we are adding.
  11. Section 10 of the OGL states "Material published under any version of the License can continue to be published using the terms of that version". Do we leave this open as an eternal license, so you can spin products out forever? No. By design. If the license changes, you need to have new products keep up. But the old ones can stay in print forever under the old license. BTW WotC's OGL has exactly the same provisions.
  12. As answered in the questions thread: If someone would mistake your content for material from one of the Chaosium games listed under Prohibited Content, it's not transformative.
