    DDM Lives! Through Official Fan License.

    D&D Skirmish Update!

    I know they said as much before, but it's nice to see it happen. D&D Mini's were, in part, responsible for me getting back into RPG's.

    * WotC would provide the licensee with access to the use of copyright intellectual property including:

    * Miniatures character names and artwork
    * Proprietary icons & fonts
    * Use of D&D Miniatures trademark and logo
    * D&D Miniatures card template and layout
    What? So all those people making their own cards with MSE and other programs can now sell them?

    I got to read this thing REAL close!

    Actually, only the official licensees, IE the three dudes they named at the bottom of the article. Also, it states the license is for not-for-profit use only, meaning the licensees cannot make money off DDM.

    You don't have to make a profit to sell things. PDF cards could be free, but what about print-on-demand cards from somewhere to have cards for those that don't have high-end printers and a new ink cartridge for each DDM stat card.

    So only the "Guild" can make stats for ANY mini?

    Not that you know the answer to this either, but I will ask since I don't know where to find it....

    Does this "guild" plan on doing only 2.0 or 1.0 stats for existing DDM sets, and/or future Heroes and Monster sets?

    Few loose ends left untied in that article.

    I wish a link to "The Guild" was posted.

    The hordelings have a site, wonder if that works.

    I cannot currently imagine any significant way in which this is not great news! Community-based development rocks!

    (Nope, I buy the minis but I don't play DDM, if that matters at all.)

    Congratz, btw, JohnnyQuest! I'm sure you're really excited about this!

    Oh, and btw, it's good to finally see you over in this neck of teh intarwebs! I know this isn't exactly a hotspot for DDM-talk, but please do stop by more often! You always seem pleasant on the Gleemax boards.

    Well thanks, Doc! I'm a DM, too, so I will jump into some more conversations, I think. I'm very much excited about continuing the skirmish game. It's an amazing opportunity.
