The game in question is – Druid: Boudicca’s Rebellion, 61 A.D. – and was designed by Mr. Berg, published by West End Games.
Contacting Mr. Berg would be easy enough, he’s around. But West End Games today is not the WEG of yore. From their website:
[i]Does WEG still hold the license to [FORMER LICENSED PRODUCT]?
No. We have no licenses at this time.
I’m really interested in acquiring one of the games or products from a property you used to license. Is there any way that these items might be available as paper products or electronic downloads (PDFs)?
No. Without having the license, we can’t reprint or PDF any old licensed products, either for sale or free. [/i]
This would seem to absolve me of any obligation to seek the publisher’s permission? Or must I find out who DOES have the rights now and consult with them?
Just toein’ the line…
