Dark Sun Setting Conversion of Kingmaker


Conversions


I'm hoping to find information on what can be done with such a conversion regarding IP/copyright. If for example a conversion were created so that only the conversion notes were offered for free for folks to access (or even by donation), and they would still need to buy the original pdf's from Paizo, would this cause an issue? I believe that Wizards of the Coast allow such content creation and dissemination as long as it is not sold.

The current conversion is for 5e also, but can easily be done rules agnostic.


Look into the particulars of the new ORC license. The Pathfinder rules are pretty much totally available for you to reference as you like as a 3rd party game. Dark Sun is probably the more thorny part IP law wise. But of course the 5e conversion has been around for ages, so there's even precedent for that.

If I were doing it I'd use the 5e conversion as sort of a template. Like obviously don't copy them exactly, but use them as an example in terms of what parts of the IP they talk about directly and what they don't, and generally how they thread the needle.

Don't know if that helps.

Well that was a fun read. I've seen many of these things before in older editions of D&D but didn't realize the strangeness was custom made for a particular setting.
