archmageengine-v3_RGB_22513th Age Archmage Engine Licensing Overview

These overviews explain what our licenses and policies allow you do with our property. Are you wondering which license is right for you? Read below.

Open Game License & 13th Age Open Content

Since the 13th Age System Reference Document (SRD) is published under the Open Game License (OGL), anyone complying with the OGL may use specific 13th Age property that we have designated as “Open Content” to create their own derivative works. The content can be used wholly or in part, but must be limited to what is specifically designated as “Open Content” within the SRD. Commercial use is allowed, though using our trademarks and logos with your product is not.

13th Age Compatibility License

The 13th Age Compatibility license allows professional publishers to use our Open Content to create commercial products compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game and to put our “13th Age Compatible” logo on them. Compatible means that the product relies on, operates with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, and is not a standalone product. By complying with the license usage terms, your product can indicate to consumers that it makes use of 13th Age Open Content, and that they can use your product with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game.

13th Age Archmage Engine License

The 13th Age Archmage Engine license is very similar to the 13th Age Compatibility license. It allows professional publishers to use our Open Content to create commercial products and to put our “Archmage Engine” logo on them. The difference is that your product does not have to strictly rely on the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. By complying with the license usage terms, your product can indicate to consumers that it makes use of 13th Age Open Content.

13th Age Community Use Policy

The 13th Age Community Policy allows the general public to use otherwise prohibited, non-open, trademarked and copyrighted content of 13th Age in limited and specific ways, and under certain restrictions. Most notably, you must not gain commercially by the use of our property, you must maintain our property in a positive light, and you must display a specific notice on your work. In return for following the usage requirements of the policy, you can use our artwork and game world elements (e.g. setting, characters) in your own adventure campaigns, wikis, fan fiction, and so on. Professional publishers are not allowed to use this content.

13th Age Logos

Here are the logos allowed for use according to the licenses above.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to use the Archmage Engine license? Can’t I make a game using your Open Content without it?

Yes, but you cannot indicate that you use Open Content from 13th Age, nor can you use our logos. This is why we created the Archmage Engine license.

Why would I use the Archmage Engine license and not the Compatibility license?

If your product can be played without the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, then the Archmage Engine license may apply, though the Compatibility license cannot.

If my product complies with both the Archmage Engine license and the Compatibility license, which logo(s) can I use on my product?

You may use the Compatibility logo alone, the Archmage Engine logo alone, or both together.

What if I don’t want to use either logo? Can I use another 13th Age logo?

No, not as part of a commercial product. However, as a non-professional and for non-commercial use, the Community Use policy grants certain allowances.

Do I need to use the Compatibility license? Can’t I make a game that’s compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game without it?

Yes, but you cannot tell people using our trademarked terms that it’s compatible, nor can you use our logos. This is why we created the Compatibility license.

What if my product uses 13th Age Open Content but does not require the 13th Age Roleplaying Game to use?

Then the Compatibility license does not apply. To be compatible, the 13th Age Roleplaying Game must be required. For example, if your product is a new type of RPG that uses game mechanics from the 13th Age Open Content but does not require the 13th Age Roleplaying Game to play, it would not be appropriate for the Compatibility license. Instead, you would use the Archmage Engine license.

Who can use 13th Age Open Content?

Anybody, as long as the Open Game License terms are fulfilled.

Who can use the 13th Age Compatibility license and the Archmage Engine license?

Professional publishers that abide by the terms of the license.

Is there extra content that I can use beyond what’s specified as Open Content when I’m using the Compatibility or Archmage Engine license?

No, except for the specific Compatibility or Archmage Engine logos on your product, the same content is available in all three cases.

Is the content available for Community Use different than the Open Game content?

Yes. Community Use policy allows some uses of certain trademarked property like artwork, characters, icons, and places from the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. In addition, Open Game content remains usable under the OGL, so both can be used together.

What is an example of Community Use content?

Community Use content includes copyrighted and trademarked material that is not found in the 13th Age SRD, for example, an image of the Diabolist and Lich King from fireopalmedia.com, or character and city names from the Dragon Empire.

What is an example of Archmage Engine / 13th Age SRD Open Content?

The 13th Age SRD is all about the generic game mechanics, which includes the basic character descriptions, rules of the game, and spell descriptions, for example.

Who can use the Community Use content?

Only non-professionals, for non-commercial use, and only as long as the Community Use policy is adhered to.

What can I create using the Community Use policy?

As long as you abide by the policy terms, you can create your own adventures in the 13th Age world, with 13th Age artwork, using 13th Age characters. You can distribute them as long as you don’t charge for them.

Do banner ads on my website count as “commercial use?”

No, as long as the content you are providing is freely available without charge.

When using Community Use content, can I change the artwork in any way?

You can resize the artwork, as long as it maintains the same aspect ratio. You may not change the color, typography, design, or proportions.

What does “descriptively reference” mean in the Community Use policy?

It means you can use our trademarked names and terms as outlined, but you cannot copy the text verbatim. You have to create something new.

By submitting an application to use the 13th Age Roleplaying Game Compatibility Logo, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this license agreement (“License”). (The application can be found and submitted online at http://www.pelgranepress.com/?p=14447.)

2. Copyrights and Trademarks

You acknowledge and agree that Fire Opal Media Inc.  and Pelgrane Press Ltd. (“Licensors”) owns all trademarks and copyrights in and to the 13th Age Roleplaying Game Compatibility Logo (“Compatibility Logo”). You agree not to contest the Licensors’ ownership of any intellectual property rights in or to the Compatibility Logo, during the term of this License or thereafter. You also agree not to create or use any names or trademarks similar enough to our trademarks that consumers could be confused about whether the item was produced by or on behalf of the Licensors.

3. License Grant

If you are in compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this License and the usage requirements set forth in Exhibit A (“Usage Requirements”), you will be granted a non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use the Compatibility Logo in printed books, electronic books, and freely available websites in connection with products that are compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, subject to the obligations and limitations set forth in this License.

You may use the Compatibility Logo only to indicate that your product is compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. You may not use the Compatibility Logo unless your game product is fully compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game (see Section 5. Compatibility). The Compatibility Logo may only be used on 13th Age Roleplaying Game compatible products and in advertisements and websites directly promoting those products. The Compatibility Logo may only be used in the manner specified in this License and in the Usage Requirements and may not be modified except as specifically set forth in the Usage Requirements.

The Compatibility Logo may only be used under this License in connection with materials you publish under the Open Gaming License 1.0a (“OGL”), a copy of which can be viewed here. You may not use the Compatibility Logo in any way that the OGL prohibits. (Note that you are solely responsible for assuring you use the OGL correctly.) The Compatibility Logo is designated as Product Identity, not Open Game Content, as those terms are defined in the OGL.

No license or permission is granted (either expressly or by implication) with respect to any trademarks, copyrights, or other intellectual property right except the Compatibility Logo, and any right not specifically granted hereunder is expressly reserved to the Licensors.

4. Usage Restrictions

The license granted hereunder is expressly limited to use of the Compatibility Logo in printed books, electronic books, and freely available websites. Anyone seeking a license for any other use should directly contact the Licensors.

You may not use the Compatibility Logo in a way that suggests that the Licensors owns, endorses, or is in any way responsible for any part of your product, or for any conduct of your business, or that suggests that you have any relationship beyond a mere license with us, unless we have a separate agreement that lets you do so. You also may not state or suggest that we guarantee your product’s compatibility with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game.

The titles of your products may not include any of the Licensors’ trademarked terms (or marks confusingly similar thereto), including “13th Age” or “13th Age Roleplaying Game.”

You may not use the Licensors’ trade dress for your products or advertisements—that is, you may not design your products to look confusingly similar to the Licensors’ products.

You may not do anything illegal in or with products produced under this License.

You must use your best efforts to preserve the high standard of our trademarks. You may not use this License for products that the general public would classify as “adult content,” offensive, or inappropriate for minors.

5. Compatibility

In order to make use of the compatible content, your product must operate under and rely on the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. Standalone game systems are in no event authorized hereunder.

You agree to use your best efforts to ensure that the licensed products are fully compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game as published in August, 2013. Your products may additionally be compatible with other systems.

If you wish to reference sections of the 13th Age Roleplaying Game or supplemental products in your product, you may do so in the following form:

See the “The Three Shards of The Elven People” section in Chapter 3 of the 13th Age Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook.

You may not use page numbers, as they may change in licensed translations and in subsequent printings. The list of products you may reference is set out in Exhibit B, which the Licensors may update at any time. You may not reference any of the Licensors’ products that are not listed in Exhibit B without express written permission.

 

If you want to publish in a language other than English, and we have published (or have licensed the rights to publish) the 13th Age Roleplaying Game in that language, and we have provided permission for use of the 13th Age Compatibility license for products in that language, then you must use the exact translations prepared for that foreign-language edition of the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. In the case that the licensed translation has not yet been released, you must wait until the translation is released before you can release your product in that language. The list of currently licensed and permitted languages is provided as Exhibit C, which may be updated at any time.

6. Effective Dates

The License will become effective once your application is accepted by the Licensors.

7. Breach and Cure

If you fail to comply with any of the terms of this License, you will be in breach and we will have the right to terminate this License. We will send notice to the contact information you provided in your registration. You will have thirty days from the date we send notice to cure the breach to our satisfaction. If the breach has not been fully and completely cured, we reserve the right to terminate the License with no further notice. After termination, you will not have the right to secure a new license from us without specific written consent.

8. Termination

We can terminate this License at any time, at our sole discretion.

If we terminate the License due to breach, you have to immediately stop selling products that use the Compatibility Logo and you must destroy all of your inventory of those products (including all marketing material). You may not make any more products that use the Compatibility Logo. You must immediately suspend any advertisements and any web content promoting products that use the Compatibility Logo. If there are any costs associated with any of this, the responsibility for paying them is exclusively yours.

If we terminate the License for any reason other than breach, you may no longer make any new products using the Compatibility Logo, but you may continue to sell existing physical products that were compliant under this License as long as you have inventory. If you sell out of a compliant product, you must remove the Compatibility Logo from future print runs. In the case of products that do not have physical inventory, such as PDFs, you must stop selling them within 30 days of termination, but if you remove the Compatibility Logo from them, you may start selling them again.

Note that if we terminate this License, and you publish products that make use of our copyrighted content available under the OGL, you still have to attribute it to Fire Opal Media Inc. and Pelgrane Press Ltd. as required by the OGL.

If you fail to comply with your post-termination obligations, you agree that any resulting dispute will be resolved in courts located in King County, Washington, and you agree to be subject to the jurisdiction of such courts. You agree that such courts will be mutually directed to award the prevailing party in any dispute its legal fees and court costs in addition to any other appropriate monetary or injunctive relief such court deems appropriate.

 

9. Updates

The Licensors may update this License at any time. The latest version is available at http://www.pelgranepress.com/?p=14447.  If you published anything under a previous version of this License, you can choose to use either the version in place at the time you originally published the work or the updated version. For new products, you may only use the current version of the License.

We may update the Exhibits at any time.  New products must always use the most recent version of each Exhibit. The Exhibits are incorporated within the terms of this License by this reference.

We may update the Compatibility Logo and the text required by Exhibit A (“Compatibility Text”) at any time. You agree to use good faith efforts to stop using old Compatibility Logos and Text and start using the updated Compatibility Logo and Text for new products. You may continue to sell items made with the old Compatibility Logos or Text as long as you continue to comply with the terms of this License. If you reprint any products that were originally published using old Compatibility Logos or Text, we request, but do not require, that you use the new Compatibility Logo and Text.

10. Notices to Licensor

You agree to keep your contact information on your registration current. Any notices to you will be sent to that address. You agree that anything sent to the contact information constitutes valid notice and service of process on you.

You agree to send at least one copy of each licensed product to Fire Opal Media, Attention: License Manager, PO Box 6233, Bellevue, WA 98008. In the case of electronic books, you may send them electronically or on a CD, DVD, or other common medium in a broadly and freely reviewable format. The first time you produce a product under this License, you must send us a copy of that product within 30 days; after that, you may take up to six months to send us a copy. (After the first product, you can send us one package every six months if you like, assuming you produce products that often.) We also request that you send us copies of any printed advertising or other marketing done in connection with the licensed products, but that is optional.

12. Arbitration and Jurisdiction

Pelgrane Press acquire the rights to publish an RPGs based on the Dying Earth and Gaean Reach Books By Jack Vance.

LONDON, ENGLAND: Pelgrane Press Ltd, a UK-based company,  announced today that it has acquired the rights to produce games based on Jack Vance’s seminal Dying Earth stories and The Gaean Reach series.

Pelgrane Press publishes the Dying Earth RPG and supplements, and more recently the GUMSHOE series of roleplaying games, including the Ennie-award-winning Trail of Cthulhu.

“When the Dying Earth licensed expired last year, we ran a closing down sale, and this was so succesful it enabled us to renew the license, and branch out into Jack Vance’s science fiction settings,” says Simon Rogers, Managing Director of Pelgrane Press. ” The Gaean Reach series offers a galaxy full of exotic cultures, flawed characters and complex machinations. It combines the crafted dialogue of the Dying Earth with Vance’s deft way with mysteries – ideal fodder for roleplaying games.”

John Vance, son of the 93-year-old author, says, “My father and I are very pleased to see Pelgrane Press developing further game modules based on these signature Vance worlds, and we hope they provide many hours of enjoyment, both to his long-time fans and to gamers new to the works.”

Robin D Laws will write the core rules for the Gaean Reach with Jim Webster and Peter Freeman providing first an Encyclopedia, then setting material and supplements. Expect to see a series of releases based on the many regions of the Gaean Reach. The Dying Earth will be on sale again shortly, with new material by Ian Thomson and new issues of XPS.

Information
Jack Vance is the world’s greatest living Fantasy author. He wrote the DYING EARTH series of books over many years; the original volume “The Dying Earth” was released before Lord of the Rings. His loosely connected Gaean Reach fiction includes The Demon Princes series, Ports of Call and The Cadwal Chronicles.

Pelgrane Press is an award-winning RPG company established in 2000 and has published more than thirty books and rpg supplements, now translated into four languages.

Simon Rogers is the and owner of Pelgrane Press Ltd and co-owner of ProFantasy Software Ltd, creators of the Campaign Cartographer 3 map-making software for gamers.

Pelgrane products have been translated into four languages, with Portuguese the most recent. RetroPunk, our Portugeuse licensee have been working quickly, and we already have their cover image for Trail of Cthulhu (upper left). We are very fortunate with our licensees that they are reliable, produce excellent translations, and pay promptly.
