    Saveing the Game

    Have any publishers purchased the Game rights? Or has anyone looked into who owns the copyrights?

    Some really cool stuff could be done with this setting.

    I would love to use Gorgona allaince to make a PBEM map that is similar to the game map.

    Mainly I would like to see some new publishings of original content since some of it is becomming hard to find.

    I could make some plans to purchase the rights to publish Birthright through Margaret Weis Productions. Is anyone against this?

    I think that the useless Sierra that has sabotaged the game (99% attention to Antara 1% to Gorgon's Alliance) now keeps the game rights AND keeps the game away from shops.So very few people knows the game....I never saw in Italy a person that knows about Gorgon's Alliance or Birthright (they ignore paper game too).
    The game has a lot of weak points (bad adventure mode,bad AI)....but it was 1997 and for the time it was an avanced game.So it has no success and no diffusion because Sierra's decision.

    I don`t think Wizards is licensing their settings right now. They
    have recently been pulling home all their licenses. I`m pretty sure
    MWP already lost Dragonlance, for instance.

    Hmmm

    There might be enough members who are willing to purchase New Birthright material here to support a small publishing of the original content and prehaps some new material....

    It probably wouldnot be very profitable more a labor of love...

    That's the case with RPG publishing these days. Unless you are WotC or willing to go out on your own, you can't really make a profit since the market is glutted and diversified.

    The guy/gal doing it will have to have multiple streams of income in order to support himself or herself.

    Yes she had an announcement saying as much.

    Ravenloft, Gamma World and just about any other setting licenses have reverted back to WotC (including Dragon and Dungeon magazines).

    I can't find the thread on EnWorld but there was a lot of talk about this and if it was all tied into their new Digital Initiative.

    You would need to be careful of the Official Fan site agreement and how it affects such activities, at least via this site.
