Remember that the copyright for the artwork on all of the tiles still belongs to HiG. Thus, even if we make our own example pictures, ultimately the publisher has to be on board with it.

Likewise for publication of the rules. They own the copyright to the rules text, so we can't go copy-pasting any of that onto a website/wiki/blog without the okay of HiG.

This is true on both fronts. I hope that if this gets moved forward they would be open to it, seeing as the CAR is, among many other things, also a compendium of the published rulebooks and is a freely-accessible download and many of the distributors also post the rulebooks online for free.

I kind of doubt they'll care, but we may have to take a wait and see approach. Has anyone contacted Hans im Gluck yet and asked if such an idea would be allowed? We'd need the right to publish the rules in a different format and a right to either use the images from the books or create our own using the tile art and wooden bits.

The examples in the CAR match the original rules because the CAR is a translation of them. Having different examples would make the perceptibly CAR different from the original rules. Adding more examples would be ok though.

I know that some of you, particularly DLloyd09, are excited about this idea, but as Derek and Chris have mentioned, we need to think through the ramifications and make sure that the publisher is on board.

While I am quite enthusiastic about it, I totally agree that if this is to be done, it needs to be done right.
