I do realise that I failed to state one important point. Although, as I've said before, the original understanding was that the Copyright rights to this world belonged to Forward Motion, and I intend to respect that, as far as my own opinion is concerned on the portions I contributed - use whatever you like. Use it all. I contributed it understanding it would be part of a shared world, so it would be more than petty to complain if someone used that world in a story. And, if it suits your story, change the details you need to in order to make it work. I didn't mention this before as I considered it so obvious.

None of that does, or is meant to, take away from Zette's right to have the final say on what is done with any and all contributions. But, since I was asking for others' opinions, and it suddenly occurred to me I hadn't stated my own, there they are. Follow whatever limits Zette sets - beyond that, have fun. Don't worry what I might think. If I'd meant to keep any sort of control over the parts of the world I created, I would have set them in my own world and kept the Copyright to them. (As much as you can Copyright worldbuilding; although the precise wording of your notes would certainly be covered, what details would be considered protected as specific to your world and what would not are one of those things that could probably earn many lawyers heaps of cash if two parties chose to dispute it. My own opinion, even on worlds I've created privately, is that apart from specific names or highly unusual - and non-historical - circumstances, it isn't reasonable to get upset because someone has a similar idea.)
