Fan-Licence


Frequently, our customers ask whether they may use pictures from our website for blog posts or homebrew rules, as avatars for discussion boards etc. or the Savage Worlds rules for their own game worlds.
We are very pleased when fans make use of their own creativity, and we don’t mind the usage of our pictures in a non-commercial context. So here are a few clarifications about such requests.
Using pictures from our websites:
As a general rule, any picture from our websites may be used non-exclusively and for non-commercial purposes until we revoke the usage. It would make us very happy if you mentioned us as the source and maybe sent us a link. We‘re eager to see what you are doing out there. 🙂
The use of the Savage Worlds rules system:
This case is a little bit more far-reaching because we can even allow you free commercial usage. So that everything will be quite correct, we have developed a special fan license for this case. You’ll find the text below. You can also find the license in the download area.

For publishers

If you want to sell your material, first send us an email at lizenz@prometheusgames.de with your plans and a few samples of your work. We work with every company on an ad hoc base at present.

Please note that we expect a high quality of production – that means outstanding illustrations, presentation and professional layout, as well as excellent content.

This license is free of charge and, once granted, you don’t have to present your products to us for approval as long as you abide by the terms and conditions below!

As soon as your product goes on sale, we recommend you visit our discussion forum at
www.prometheusgames.de/forum/ or one of the two following forums www.aktion-abenteuer.de or
www.tanelorn.net and tell our fans about it. Although this isn’t a requirement, we would be pleased to receive a copy of your work for our collection, so we can talk about it at fairs or in stores. PDF and printed copies are equally welcome.
