Microlite20 Violent Enemy Guide

Post by TigerClawTV » Wed Dec 16, 2020 1:16 pm

I wanted to complete some resources for Microlite20 so I got with my friend who is a degree holding graphic designer and we generated a bunch of monsters from the Donjon m20 monster generator and we have been play testing them recently. Our goal is to take our generated monster list and release it for free/pwyw on Drive Thru RPG.

As far as I can tell, as long as I include a copy of the OGL 1.0a we should be good. Since I'm hiring my buddy to produce original art we should have no copyright issues there. Is there anything I need to be aware of before producing and releasing Microlite20 supplements?

Thanks

In general, yes. However, there's a bit more to it than just including a copy of the license. At a minimum you need to:

a) add the copyright notice for your item to the end of Section 15
b) CLEARLY declare what portions of your product are Product Identity and what portions are Open Game Content.

If you used any Open Game Content from other OGL products in your product, you also need to include the copyright notices for those products in Section 15 just before the copyright notice for your product. Section 15 can get quite long if you use Open Game Content from a large number of other OGL products.

Thanks much! I definitely want this to be something that gets released. At this point I have a pdf all setup with monsters, I'm just working to get some art made and play test them as much as possible for balance issues.

I'm looking forward to it. More monsters are always good.
