So… I’ve had a couple of people ask me in different ways about the use of the System Apocalypse for fan fiction / etc. So here’s my personal stance on this.
If it’s pure fan fiction (i.e. non-commercial, no money is being made on this) – feel free to have fun. Not only would it be silly for me to try to stop you, I think it’s cool.
I cut my teeth writing fan fiction (and its like) ages ago. It’s where I learnt / practised a chunk of my writing. I know some authors dislike fan fiction, I’m not one of them.
I do ask if you’ve gotten something written / etc. to let me know if you don’t mind. Just out of curiosity and ego really, but if you’re shy, I understand.
The only line that I draw is when you are looking to produce this for commercial purposes. For a variety of reasons (legal included), I will have to say no. Unless we have a contract, etc., from my (very basic) knowledge of trademark and copyright, if you are making money on my work and I am not stopping you, I actually give up rights to my own work. Obviously, this is bad.
