It doesn't matter. The fact is that copyright laws are being violated. They could conceivably come down on us just for having links to such material -- which is why the Candlekeep Forum Code of Conduct outlaws such things.



And considering that I'm still half-expecting the Edition Police to come along and seize my library of pre-4E books (particularly Realms material), we should all be good observers of copyright. They don't want us sharing the new stuff because it means they're losing money, and they don't want us sharing the old stuff because it means we're spreading links to the past.

That being said, I'm waiting for my Blackmoor collection to arrive from www.nobleknight.com ... mint copies of half a dozen Blackmoor products, sadly not including the original D&D campaign supplement... but that set's still going to be a collector's item some day, and I got it for way less than total retail.

Playing in the Realms since the Old Grey Box (1987)... and *still* having fun with material published before 2008, despite the NDA'd lore.

If it's comparable in power with non-magical abilities, it's not magic.

What the 4TH Editionstapo didn't knock on your door at 0300am a couple of weeks ago and confiscate your NOW illegal D&D books?





"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."
Alaundo of Candlekeep

Ruins of Zhentil Keep

Lands of Intrigue
Empires of the Shining Sea
Maztica
Menzoberranzan
The Ruins of Myth Drannor
The Horde



How much would you sell these for? I might be interested in having a second copy of the Netheril map so I can put it up on my wall...



$5 per set, plus shipping and handling.

Hey Wooly, do you still have the map of Netheril? I'm willing to buy it ^-^

Pretty sure I've still got all of those maps... Have to see where I buried them, though...

... And it was easier to find them than I thought. I've still got all of them. Never did get around to tossing them up on eBay...

And all of this can be be nipped-in-the-bud, simply by putting the disclaimer on the maps (which I don't always remember to do, which is why I also have one on my DeviantART site).

However, my maps are modified versions of the originals, which puts them firmly in the 'derivative works' category, so I only need the disclaimer (stating they are wotC/Hasbro property). Derivative art falls under the same category as parodies, and are usually okay (the companies could still theoretically challenge them - especially in the case of a map containing names from other copyrighted sources - but will not normally do so, so long as you do not try to make money off of them - that endangers their IP).

4e maps I would not put on the net, simply because they seem to be keeping a tight lid on 4e material. My Larakond Map is not a 4e map - it is my own original work inspired by the 4e Returned Abeir map and material (with much added by me... and funny enough, you can find that map on many sites claiming it is the 'official' one.. more then you find the real official one).

I have found that so long as you don't make money from their stuff, WotC will look the other way, if only because your own contributions to the community grow the fanbase, which is good for everyone.

This is one of the few instances where I will say WotC 'behaves' better then Paizo, or many other RPG companies. I suppose they realize most folks who like 'free stuff' wouldn't have paid for it, regardless, and that viewing such 'questionable' material could lead to purchases that would not have otherwise been made.

Going after your own fans in court is just BAD business - fansites only help generate buzz. Have you any idea how many purchases I have made because of THIS site? And I am not just talking FR or D&D here - right now I am reading Fire & Ice because of recommendations here.

Just my 2 cents.
