Getting Microlite74 printed

Post by DrRelling » Sun Sep 05, 2021 1:53 pm

I'm planning a Microlite74 game for my group, and I'd like to get all the rules printed nicely by a print-on-demand service. Apologies if this is a stupid question, but I'm not sure if this is allowed under the OGL - is this okay? It'd just be a single copy for personal use, I'm not planning to start selling it or anything like that.

Fantastic game, by the way. I'm really looking forward to running it!

It would seem to me that the open source license says it all. You can use anything in the material for your own personal or commercial use as long as you include the license information contained on the last page. Ultimately it will really depend upon your printer. Some will print whatever you hand them and some will require proof of permission. That is contained in the license information section.

And some are downright unreasonable. I've taken to adding specific permission to print copies to all the new gamesI publish simply to make it harder for the unreasonable copy shops to refuse to print stuff because they can't understand the OGL or the fact that someone would make an entire game open content.

Thanks for confirming! I've ordered a copy from lulu.com. It took a little wrangling to get it into the format they want - assuming they do a good job with it, I can post the print files if you like?
