I got an e-mail back from FFG about the request I had made for making Doom: TBG and releasing to module for all to share…Here is what they sent me back.
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we cannot allow the
creation of a module for the game. The creator and copyright holder
for Doom, iD Software, would not like a videogame version of the board
game of their videogame, no matter how much like the board game it is.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I hope you understand.

I’m sharing this with everyone because I would like your opinions on if you think this statement makes sense about why they declined my request.
Specifically, Would any of YOU consider VASSAL and any module related to VASSAL to be a video game? Now, I’m not bent out of shape about their reply, I kinda expected it honestly but that part threw me off because I don’t consider it that, and don’t think “said rep” even came to the site to check it out.
The next step for me is to ultimately (If given enough support) go directly to ID and contact them since it seems they are the only ones opposing the creation of the module and see if I can’t clear it up with them and then pursue FFG again after explaining to ID what it is really about.
So what are your thoughts, I would like any and all criticism/comments good or bad on this please.
