Non-OGL Material[edit]

I'm not much of a lawyer... Ok, so I'm not a lawyer or even a paralegal. However, I'm afraid some of this material is proprietary to WOTC even with the changes that the Book of Ki creator included. I think you could argue that some of it is legal due to Fair Use. I do think there would be some issue with taking races and classes from Oriental Adventures, tweaking the stats or whatever a bit, and then throw them in a document that an individual declares all Open Gaming Content. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Xenophon (talkcontribs) 13:23, 28 November 2006 (MST).

What would you recommend doing? --Green Dragon 17:00, 28 November 2006 (MST)
Unfortunately it seems the best course of action would be redoing things from the bottom up or ditch this altogether and start a new, similar aim, project. WotC/Hasbro lawyers must not do too much enforcement as this was originally from the WotC forums. Worst comes to worse the lawyers send you a cease and desist letter and you take it down without further entanglement (who knew lawyers were Druids). --Xenophon 03:19, 3 December 2006 (MST)
Hm... Redo from scratch, or ditch. I would say re-do if someone is willing to take this over; if not delete it. So, would anyone like to take this over while keeping the same idea in mind, except for making it work with the WotC licenses? --Green Dragon 13:37, 3 December 2006 (MST)
I'd like to help out on this but I'm not much of an anime buff. I can pull from my extensive wuxia fandom but it'd be mostly building everything from the ground up and possibly excluding things or not covering parts I'm not as familiar with. --Xenophon 07:01, 18 December 2006 (MST)
So, would you like to take this upon yourself, or not? --Green Dragon 15:37, 18 December 2006 (MST)
...I should take some more time to think about this, but I think I'll throw my hat into the ring. This is along the lines of something I've intended to do for a while anyway. --Xenophon 15:46, 19 December 2006 (MST)
I look forward to when you change it around. --Green Dragon 17:31, 19 December 2006 (MST)


When I first look at it, it seems suspiciouly familiar to Psionics. Pools, Known abilities, max levels. Just saying. I will have to keep reading though. Hope it is worth it. --T G Geko 13:15, 2 August 2008 (MDT)
