First of all, I’m new to the forum, but not to CoG. Both me and my husband love this site, and have bought and played most of the games here. We would like to thank everybody for the hours of wonderful entertainment we’ve got. Keep up the amazing work!
Then to business. I’m planning on writing a fantasy game (the D&D style fantasy), with a twist and a pinch of humour. It’s still mostly in the planning phase (and I’m still figuring out ChoiceScript), so don’t hold your breaths just yet. In my game I would like to include homages, very small cameos from popular fantasy, e.g., works of Weis & Hickman, Salvatore, Tolkien and Pratchett. But I’m rather confused about the laws regarding this, I wouldn’t want to commit any sort of copyright infringements.
So I’m wondering if any of you would know, if it’s OK to, let’s say, include meeting a pair of halflings or gnomes on their Very Secret Mission to drop an earring into a rumored volcano some way ahead? No names would be mentioned, nor would I mock them - not at least in malice. I apologise if this matter has been discussed in another thread. I couldn’t find anything specific, but it’s completely possible I missed them.
Thank you for your time
