Open Game Content

The Echelon game system is intended to be as open and free for use as possible.  As such, any text describing rules, game structure, or other game mechanical consideration is designated Open Game Content.

Designation of Product Identity

The following items are hereby designated as Product Identity in accordance with section 1(e) of the Open Game License 1.0a:

  • Any and all Echelon d20 and Echelon Framework logos and identifying marks and trade dress, including by not limited to ‘Echelon d20’ and ‘Echelon Framework’ and titles including these names.
  • ‘Spoilers’ associated with specific entries on this site.  The rules presented are Open Game Content, these supplemental materials are not.

There isn’t much else; anything ‘campaign specific’ and ‘fictional’ (rather than reference, such as the Echelon Framework) is expected to be hosted elsewhere and (potentially) published separately.

Designation of Open Content

Subject to the Product Identity designation above, all portions of Echelon d20 and Echelon Framework are designated Open Game Content.

Personal comments and discussions held on this site (such as responses to articles and the Echelon documentation) belong to the people who write them.
