Maybe at some point I should actually read the game? After I get through my review slush pile and everything else that's occupying me free time...
In an attempt to support the gaming community while still protecting our brand, Monte Cook Games offers a limited, royalty-free license for individuals and publishers interested in producing small-run game material supporting Numenera.
This is designed to be a hassle-free way for publishers to license small-press products with expected sales of $2,000 or less.
This Limited License is probably not for you if you’re a fan who wants to create awesome Numenera items for your website, blog or community. You probably want to check out our fan use policy instead.
This Limited License is also probably not for you if you are large company and/or are hoping to put out a product with expected sales revenues of more than $2,000. In that case, you’ll want to apply for a full licensing partnership from Monte Cook Games.
Here are some of the features of the Limited License:
**There is a $50 fee.
**That fee licenses a single print or PDF product supporting Numenera (you can obtain multiple licenses for multiple products).
**You may sell the product commercially (or release it for free, if you desire).
**You may not crowdfund the product.
**You do not need to pay royalties and are not required to report sales unless we request a report.
**However, this license limits your total sales revenue to $2000. (If you anticipate sales revenue greater than $2000, or if your sales revenues exceed $2000, you’ll need to discuss a full license with us.
The Monte Cook Games limited license is intended for small-press support products. This is not the entirety of the limited license. If you are interested in pursuing a publication under our limited license and would like additional information about what it entails, please contact Charles Ryan at email@example.com.Not sure what to make of this. Some products may not even make back $50 after expenses...
