The cooperation between LT and SD has been made in order to
develop one or more textbased RPG/adventure game(s) with the help of the
LT editor based on the fantasy setting developed on
The game being developed in cooperation from both sides
will be strictly non-commercial, none of the parties is allowed to sell
the finished product.
In the finished game there will be references to both, the
LT website and the SD website, directly in the game and in seperate
The SD side will try to provide the material which can be
integrated into the game from the other side.
The LT side will try to integrate the provided material
into the game and deal with various coding issues (for the game program,
the editor etc.).
It is the intention of both sides to work together on the
project, complementing each other. Both sides should help each other
with constructive criticism. The definitions of the tasks of the LT and
SD side mentioned above are only intentions and cannot be guaranteed
There is no time limit or no definitions one side can tell
the other what exactly needs to be done or not for the project, but
progress should be made as transparent as possible for the other side
and both sides should try to organize their parts as good as possible.
Progress screenshots, test adventures and the finished
game(s) as well as the LT program (shareware) are allowed to be hosted
and downloaded on both sites, the Santharian Dream website and at the
Legendary Tales website. Links to the other party's website are
mandatory on these pages.
The LT program used to build the Santharian game(s) remains
property of Konstantinos Evgenidis. Though the shareware program can be
used by others to build games, the license agreement contained in the
setup of the program determines to what extent this usage is possible.
All code lines (including scripts) used in the game remain
property of the person who codes the lines (material however belongs to
the authors, see below).
All material used in the game(s) remain property of the
authors, artists, musicians etc., which are members of the Santharian
Dream. They retain full copyright on their own work they have
contributed to the Santharian Dream. Santharians who participate in the
game project will sign these conditions as well to confirm that they
agree to these terms.
Additionally Santharians or non-Santharians who participate
in the project may fill out the terms of the Santharian membership (How
to join the Dream-page on Santharia) and submit them to the Santharian
HQ, mainly to ensure that the material can still be used at Santharia
even if the member should be quitting the Dream for whatever reason.
Signing the membership conditions is NOT mandatory. In this case the
copyrights of the member works remain in full with the member. People
identifying fully with the Santharian Dream and its intentions however
are advised to give this confirmation to use their works at any rate to
make things easier for the Santharian site administration in general.
Non-Santharian people who'd like to participate in the
project, can do so, providing they send a statement to the Santharian HQ
stating that what their contributions to the project remain part of the
project, even if they should quit. They also have to agree to the
conditions here. Of course these contributors can also use their own
works they share with the Dream and LT at other projects as they still
retain the copyrights, though they have given permission to use it at
the Santharian Dream.
Of course the project doesn't prohibit for both sides, LT
and SD, to make profit with their own developed things (LT: to make
profit with the LT program; SD: as the site is strictly non-commercial,
no profit making is planned, so this is only of theoretical nature).
Modifications of the game or of the Santharian material
which are part of the game outside of the cooperation in the LT context
are not allowed for third parties and also not for both parties if the
cooperation ends/is terminated. However, as both sides are not bound to
each other and LT is responsible for the form on how the game is
presented (the LT program) and SD for the content, the LT side is
entitled to continue LT development and SD is allowed to use the content
elaborated for the game for possible future projects (e.g. to realize
the same game with a 3d engine).
Termination of the project is possible by any side for
whatever reason without the consent of the other side.
After project termination both parties will be allowed to
distribute whatever has been developed up to the point of termination in
the form of an LT game under the terms of this agreement.
After the completion of this project the finished game will
remain property of both sides and as such can be used for any purpose
that does not violate the terms of this agreement.
The project will be considered finished when it contains at
least 400 locations (as defined in the LT Editor) or when both parties
agree that it is finished even with fewer locations.
The copyright of any material which is provided for
integration into the program itself (such as graphics or code) will
remain to the original owner but the right of usage will also be
transfered to Konstantinos Evgenidis as well. Major alterations of
pictures in the program itself however should be only done with
permission of the artists.
The project will be implemented with Legendary Tales
Version 1.42 and the features it already provides. Additional program
features in later versions can be used but not required for the
completion of the project.
Together with the *finished* game additional material from
Santharia can be distributed with the game for promotional or gameplay
purposes with Santharian permission (optional).
Modifications of the game code in the Editor can be done by
the LT side independently for the sole purpose of allowing the game to
be compatible with future versions of the Legendary Tales Program.
This agreement can be modified at any time provided that
both parties agree.
