CAN I SELL THE STORIES I CREATE BY PLAYING COLOSTLE?
The intention of Colostle is that it is a game, rather than a way to generate stories that can be sold. Since the rulebook material is copyrighted, any mention of the words and concepts from the game book in a story (if it was to be sold) would be a breach of that copyright. Also, the word 'Colostle' is a registered trademark so any mention of that would be a breach of trademark as well.
Colostle is a game, first and foremost, the journal writing mechanic being a method for the player to export their adventures and have a way to record what has happened to them in a fun and creative way. I actively encourage players to share their stories online (for free) and to credit Colostle with their source/creation, but I am afraid that sale of those stories would be a breach of creative intellectual property protection.
This is just intended as a way to protect what I have created. It is difficult to protect something like this when those who play it end up creating something of their own off the back of it. This is not intended as a way to snub the players or actively block their creativity. I hope you will still enjoy playing the game.
