D&D 3e/3.5e/d20The forum for conversations specifically related to the rules and procedures of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition, 3.5 Edition, or any fantasy game using the d20 system or a variant thereof (commercially published or not).
I have a quick little question. If I'm working on a homebrew project that uses maneuvers and stances made by other people, Do I need to get their permission for it or can I just use it? I'm sorry if this should be in the homebrew section, but it seemed to fit a bit better here.
I won't speak from authority on the legality, but if it's a free-access project that you're not making any money off that just tips a hat to someone else's free-access project they're not making any money off, I doubt there'd be an issue.
But it's certainly good manners to ask permission before incorporating someone else's name with your own project. If you're doing decent work, odds are the writers would be willing (they've already released the material for other people's use), but it would be good to go through the motions on it.
