Legal Stuff

"First thing, let's kill all the lawyers."

TES2, TES3, TES4, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, Tamriel, Elder Scrolls, and whatever other words might be generally associated with these games are trademarks or copyrighted material and are the property of Bethesda Softworks or its parent corporation. The games themselves are copyrighted material and the property of Bethesda Softworks or its parent corporation, and are not freely distributable, reproducible, and whatever other legal terms might be effectively synonymous with "Don't Copy That Floppy" except as expressly provided in the license agreement accompanying each piece of software. Everything else is the property of the respective copyright holder and may not be reproduced without the consent of the copyright holder.

My stuff is mine. While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, copying is illegal. If you want to print out a copy for your own use, please feel free to do so. You're even welcome to roll it up on a cardboard tube and hang it in a place of honor next to your porcelain throne. But please don't take my work and stick it up on your website without permission. If you'd like to quote significant portions of my work, please ask. The answer will probably be something like, "sure, whatever, go ahead," but I'm going to insist on being credited as the author. If you think you can do a better job, then by all means do it. But my work is mine and that's all there is to it.

Anything that is not mine will be appropriately credited. Graphics are derivative works (sorry, I haven't branched out into graphic design - stick figures are about the limit of my artistic ability) of in-game graphics. To that extent, I'm claiming "fair use".

And, fer cryin' out loud, if you're going to play the game, have the decency to buy it. While I do what I do pretty much for the love of the game, the good folks at Bethesda have families to feed and 401ks that need contributions. Illegal copies not only take money out of their pockets, but they also show that the game's popularity is less than what it actually may be since illegal copies can't be counted in the sales numbers. In the long run, this hurts the fans. So show your support and spend the fifty bucks.
