  1. Just want to poke my head in here and say "hi." I know I have been out of contact for a long while in large part because I'm so busy with school and other nonsense. Though West End Games is, for all real intents and purposes, in indefinite hiatus and I've no immediate intent change that, or come back to the game publishing industry in a regular, active capacity, I just wanted to remind folks that I am still here -- if that indeed means anything to anyone. The above said, I've been toying with the idea of producing D6 material again too, but to be clear, in a casual and independent capa
  2. In respect to the marketing plans of the new owners, I'll not be announcing who the buyers are unless and until I am asked to do so by them, or until I've heard of them going public on the matter themselves.
  3. To be clear, per the "letter of the law" the text "D6 System" is trademarked and not open under the OGL, but I'll allow its use in refence to OpenD6 in order to promote brand coherency and because to do otherwise is silly and pointless. It is like disallowing people from use "D20" or "d20" in a system's text, especially when a publisher might simply call it "System 3.5" or "OGL 3.5" or whatever. Doing so doesn't really protect the sysem in any way, especially since virtually every gamer knows what "System 3.5," "Fantasy 3.5," etc., really means. It's pointless obfuscation. Disallow the use of
  4. Though it is not specifically stated, text references to OpenD6 as the D6 System if fine in my book. It is primarily the old D6 logos that should not be used, using the OpenD6 logo instead. Of course, it would be silly of me to never allow or expect anyone to ever reference OpenD6 material as D6 System.
  5. A quick note on a few things: 1. "D6" doesn't have copyright protection, nor have I even claimed it did. D6 DOES have trademark protection, which is a different thing entirely. To show trademark violation, one would need to show that you used "D6" or a derivation thereof to obfuscate or deceive the consumer, to promote your own game through implicit connection with the D6 System or OpenD6. The fact that this thread exist and there is DOCUMENTED confusion on the matter is a whole heep of Prima Facia evidence. Moreover, it takes very little effort to see that C6 in system function is clearly
  6. Compliments of Bill, the full PDF for Septimus is available at RPGnow for free. http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=63991
  7. I will email Bill and ask him is he would like me to make Septimus available through RPGnow and DriveThroughRPG for free.
  8. I just sent Ken the original high res logo (vector). Likewise, anyone is feel to email me to get a copy and it may be freely hosted and shared.
  9. Thank you. School is out after the Spring term, but I start a Summer term on May 24th, so I'm using this next week to try and start catching up on work. Here's to good intentions. :rolleyes:
  10. By the way. I'm working on about 35 hours without any sleep, so if you notice any errors that need to be addressed, please drop my an email: hellsreach@gmail.com Please put "OpenD6 OGL ERROR" (or something similar) in the topic so Im less likely to miss it in my mass of daily emails.
  11. I am an uncurable slow-poke. I know and apologize. Still, I have finally modified and uploaded (to RPGnow) a copy of D6 Adventure. This modification adds an OpenD6 logo to the front cover as well as alters the OGL to permit the full use of the OpenD6 brand (trademarks/logo) without the need for an STL or any other ancillary license. In fact, not such license will ever be forecoming as it is specifically no longer needed. Though I indend to alter the other books to the newer Product Identification information, to be clear, this is not a requirement. D6 Adventure is sufficient for releasing the
  12. Within the OpenD6 OGL itself, this is no restriction against establishing an add-on branding such as D6 Dramatics, nor would there be any problem with providing additional B2B value adds for a fee, but that is with OpenD6 and if you published a rebrand of OpenD6 as D6 Dramatics (using the structure you mentioned), that doesn't change or override the fact that it is still OpenD6 and OGL. If you republished OpenD6 as D6 Dramatics, you label your whole suite of material and value adds as Product Identity under which you create the D6 Dramatic rebrand, and issue a wholly separate license for D
  13. A good deal for work was done on the OpenD6 web utility, and good deal of money was spent on it, but it still requires more work (and thus more money) and I just have little desire to continue putting money into the site, though I'd still love to see it completed, I have not idea how long that would take or how much it would cost. I talk with the developer regularly (of separate matters) but never does our conversation go to the OpenD6 subject.
  14. I appreciate your concerns. Truly I do. With regards to the OpenD6 OGL devaluing something you (and Jerry) paid money for, please let me make a couple statements. Though I acknowledge that publicizing business details is a faux pas, it is appropriate to level a formal defense for such a (mild) accusation and to address your "licensing plan." First -- To be clear, Scott signed a license to produce D6 material for Final Sword Productions. Ad Astra, specifically, has never had a formal license as such. I have allowed, do to the close relationship between Final Sword and Ad Astra for Al Astra
