This announcement is in preparation for when the stars are right... January 1st.
I'm organizing one of those game jam things for Cha'alt.
In case you don't know, Cha'alt is my very own eldritch, gonzo, science-fantasy, post-apocalyptic OSR campaign setting that frequently includes humor, grindhouse / exploitation sleaze, and pop-culture references. It now encompasses three books with a fourth volume of the weird-ass trilogy hopefully coming in 2024.
Not using ichio; only DriveThruRPG and Big Geek Emporium to host releases.
Between January 1st and February 14th (Valentine's Day), I'm creating a six-week open license window for gamers to create stuff and sell it using my Cha'alt intellectual property, and I'm extending that to include Crimson Dragon Slayer, Alpha Blue, and Encounter Critical (both the original and new edition that'll come out at the end of December).
Everything made within that window will be allowed without a separate license between the two parties, and may continue to be sold or distributed freely by the creator. Anything made outside of that January 1st 2023 - February 14th 2023 timeframe will require a licensing agreement between the creator and myself.
Post the following somewhere in the product, "Licensed with permission from Venger As'Nas Satanis, High Priest of Kort'thalis Publishing and Archduke of the OSR, in the year of our Dark Lord 2023, whether you like it or not."
I look forward to seeing what you make of this golden opportunity, hoss. Share this news, and let your creative juices flow!
