Tri-Stat Emporium: Community Content Guidelines

Anime 5E and Tri-Stat Emporium: Community Content Guidelines

 

The Anime 5E and Tri-Stat Emporium is a community content programme hosted on DriveThruRPG and facilitated by Dyskami Publishing Company (Dyskami). This allows you to create and sell new digital content for the Anime 5E RPG and Tri-Stat System game lines (including BESM Fourth Edition, Absolute Power, and Tri-Stat System Mini-Games).

 

How the Emporium Works

 

Under the programme, anyone can create digital PDF content and sell it on the DriveThruRPG website. You can write adventures, character/weapon/animal compilations, new powers and abilities, alternate game rules, fiction, world books, new setting/genre materials, enhanced character sheets, artwork — just about anything you want! You set the sales price for your content (or give it away for free) and DriveThruRPG pays you 50% of that price for every sale made on their site. It’s that easy!

 

Note that content produced for Anime 5E must follow the Open Gaming License Version 1.0a, which is the license under which Anime 5E is published.

 

Dyskami has developed toolkit modules that will assist you in the creation of your own content as well. This includes a style guide, layout templates, art packs, and more. You can download all that content for free to use it in your own creations, or go it solo and create your own material from scratch.

 

The Tri-Stat Emporium is only licensed for use on the DriveThruRPG site. If you want to produce Tri-Stat System works for print publication or for sale or distribution outside the DriveThruRPG website (even if you’re only giving it away for free), you must first contact Dyskami (info@dyskami.ca) for permission and negotiate a specific licensing agreement.

 

Text Usage

 

The goal of the Emporium is to encourage creation of new material, not copying and republishing of existing material. Any amount of text included in the freely distributed Anime 5e Primer and BESM Primer can be republished in your Emporium works. Furthermore, game-specific terminology – such as the names of Ability Scores, Stats, Attributes, Defects, Derived Values, Enhancements, Limiters, and other similar game terms – can be used in your Emporium works as well. Finally, you are also allowed to copy small sections text from any original books published by Dyskami (ie. not based on an existing media license). “Small” can be defined as a maximum of 100 consecutive words, not to exceed a combined total of 1000 words from a particular published book or volume. Please use your best judgement to create and not copy. If you wish to refer to larger sections of text from any Dyskami core rules or expansion products in your Emporium works, simply ask the reader to refer to the specific book title.

 

Art Usage

 

No art can be reused in your Emporium works that come from any published Dyskami titles, with the exception of artwork that is included in the art packs distributed by Dyskami under this community content programme. When using this artwork in your Emporium works, you must credit the artist as indicated in the art pack instructions.

 

Content Restrictions

 

Your Emporium works are not allowed to include any of the following content:

 

• material considered libellous or defamatory

• text or creations that infringe on the intellectual property of other Tri-Stat Emporium works

• material that infringes on the intellectual property of any media property (such as TV shows or movies, books, comics, games, etc.)

• text, art, or other content that falls outside the allowable usage guidelines outlined earlier

 

Trade Dress

 

You are encouraged, but not required, to use the layout templates that Dyskami provides to the Emporium programme when creating your works. These templates are provided in both InDesign and Word formats, and you are welcome to modify these templates to meet your needs.

 

Legal and Logos

 

One of the Emporium logos must clearly appear on your title’s cover image (the public image that accompanies your title’s listing). This can be the original Anime 5E and Tri-Stat Emporium logo, or the combined BESM/Tri-Stat Emporium or Absolute Power/Tri-Stat Emporium logos. The logo may be resized as desired, but the aspect ratio must be maintained and the logo may not otherwise to altered in any way. No other logos from any Tri-Stat System products, whether from current titles or older ones, can be reproduced in your works.

 

The following legal text must also appear within your Emporium works in a section dedicated to legal and copyright information (replacing “20XX” with your works’ publication year):
