The art looks fantastic! When do you plan on publishing the first issue?

Playing on Drachenfels? Speaking German? Tired of exploring Sosaria alone?

This is good question!
When I get enough stories and fun art etc. ,
as well copy rights - I hope than I can start think about launching the UO Magazine.
In magazine I am only a designer.

The art looks fantastic! When do you plan on publishing the first issue?

Looks good, although you'll probably need to be very careful if you're using any form of UO art/copywritten imagery. (i.e. the UO Logo)

Sign me up for the magizine. Unfortunately, I wasn't one of the lucky ones that started way back when, but have been told and heard many, many Legendary stories that makes me wish I had started then. So, yes, please keep us informed and good luck. Hope it all comes together. I will pass the word to our Alliance as I know one that started in the beginning and runs the Library. So we Will be waiting for the time it can be released.

Interesting idea! But as others have said be careful with the warcraft images as they are copyright. You should be fine if you aren't reselling them.

If you are an established publisher, recognized artist or renowned writer, you might get the right to use copyrighted art of UO from EA for a generous royality to be paid to them. If not, I would be very, very surprised if you will get the rights. Absolutely forget to do it anyways should you be rejected, you will find yourself quicker in a courtroom on the hard bench as you can say "Ultima". Do yourself a favour and make 100% sure that the legalities are cleared before you publish anything anywhere, including the internet.

Do all these legal restrictions apply if he calls it a Fanzine and does not charge for it?

Depends. If there's any sort of advertising where he'd receive any funds whatsoever from advertising, he could get in trouble. It varies...if it can fall under fair use, he wouldn't but it would be hard to say really. Getting a legal okay is probably a good idea.

And Happy Halloween. Good luck with the project kartman

Screw that. =P Love the idea of highlighting the great UO stories experienced over the years.

Kartman drop me a PM and lets chat. Curious how far we could take this. Perhaps we just keep it digital to manage costs.

I think this is a great idea.

I think you might be surprised with EA's answer.

I don't see how it could hurt them by letting you do this.

And for those that say EA loves to sue over stuff like this can you please list some specific instances?
