    Unsupported Game Systems Offer

    If you are playing or want to play a game system that doesnt have a current ruleset consider the following:

    I will make myself available for 30-60mins to show you how to use MoreCore to setup and run your game table on the following proviso -
    You will in turn prepare at a minimum a fully setup character sheet and a couple of paragraphs on how to use and upload these here to the forums for others to use.

    Around 9,000 MoreCore games were run last year but hardly anyone has posted any Character sheets/setups for their games. It would be great to share your setups so that others can also use them and can also improve upon them.

    I may also consider a Theme session as well.

    Be aware - Im in Australia and most of you are not so we will need to negotiate a time suitable to both...

    --

    Edit: The first session took about 2 hours...

    I'm actually trying my hand at some unconventional games with MoreCore or CoreRPG. I'm working on using Fantasy Grounds for Blood Bowl, Battletech, and some of the Two Hour Wargames selections as well. Still in the development stages and working on adding some specific functionality. The common program among my friends is Fantasy Grounds, so trying to expand it's uses with some wargaming and games we like to play. Nothing to share quite yet.

    Hey, damned... Question. I prepared level 0 characters for all the base classes for SotDL that included dice rolls, etc but I was concerned that if I uploaded them to help people it would violate copyright. I assume I still need to worry about copyright with the characters before I upload, right?

    Unless your character sheet contains copious amounts of cut and paste text from the rulebooks then it is ok to share them.

    Cool... I will go back and ensure they do not so I can share them. That was the whole reason I created them and then I got cold feet. Thanks!

    My understanding is that except in very rare cases; titles, names, etc that would be found on a character sheet could not be copyrighted. What would be copyrighted is descriptive text. So including the descriptions of what a features/ability/race/class is or does would not be allowed, but having a field that is named and the player can then fill in either with the value or the descriptive text would be fine.

    So, to clarify, their are a few names that some game systems consider Product Identity, some I think are 'Bigby', or 'Mind Flayer', etc. But those are generally not things you would put in a character sheet. Other systems might have some field name that is considered PI, but I can't think of any. Things that you might want to put on a character sheet but wouldn't be able to would be things like the D&D ampersand, logos, and maybe game names ('Warhammer 40k'). But those are things that a character sheet in FG doesn't need.

    If there will be theming/ruleset modification session, then I for sure will sign up. I have at least 3-4 systems for which there are no rulesets about, but I want to play on FG (Wrath & Glory, Eclipse Phase, Legend of the Five Rings, Corporation).

    Visuals are very important for proper immersion into the game world, especially when playing online.
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    Damned,

    I'd love to take you up on this offer..looking to perhaps set up 2300 A.D. in MoreCore. I've got no problem with posting the character sheets and a blurb about it..

    Even though Bigby is PI it doesnt mean you cannot even reference it. Otherwise this thread would also be in breach of copyright.
    Logos are copyright but people use other peoples logos all the time - eg when listing their clients on their website.
    Copyright is a very grey area.

    Definitely dont claim to be official or licensed in your product if you are not.
    Dont copy verbatim chunks of text.
    Dont use PI (even with my comment above!).

    GunbunnyFuFu you would need to send me some info on the Dice Mechanics in advance unless you know that the rolls are already supported.
    And then we would need to work out a time. Perhaps we can do the first in this thread and the second by PM?
