Thread topic says it all. I write some stories based on Dungeons and Dragons campaigns I am in. Am I allowed to post that kind of thing on Tapas? Or does it have to be 100% original stories? (whereas the stories in question use some words that if I recall are copyrighted by the people who make D&D)
You can post stories based on DnD campaigns.
Oh you definitely can! I've seen d&d based comics on here! Try to use synonyms or made up names when mentioning anything copyrighted though so you don't get into trouble and I think it would be nice if you'd ask your players/GM and coplayers if you can use their Characters as well since the story you have created is collaborative after all.
Cool, thank you! I think I will post them then. Neat, this means I can just move everything I have from Wattpad to Tapas.
Another question. Does anyone know if short stories do well here at all?
Novels do worse than comics on here in general and consistent posting in long running series improves readership, but as long as you publish your shortstories in one novel, they have the same genre and you let your readers know what they're getting into you should be fine.
Cool, thanks! Guess I really am migrating everything I posted on Wattpad over to Tapas xD
What a mood haha, I used to have wattpad too, but my stuff is all old and in my native language, so there's no use for me to migrate all that old bad stuff
Everything I have on WP is edited and such so it'd be a shame if I couldn't post it somewhere
That's definitly true, don't know for how much longer wattpad will exist haha better abandon ship now
Sure, so far, I saw stories of D&D based on table top games. I remember a really good D&D story called by the die.
Here is the link to it if you're interested:
I've seen other fan comics and fan novels around! Go for it! I myself am writing a novel based on DC Comics' New Gods that I would love for DC to actually notice one day. (Small chance but it's a passion project and I also don't claim to own the characters who aren't my ocs haha.) And I once saw a Steven Universe fan comic on the front page. So yeah, it's all good.
