I have asked the same question in the Old Forum and Modiphius developers had stated they had NO QUALMS about an EVENTUAL translation in other languages of the FREE (and ONLY the FREELY available) Material of Infinity R.P.G. like the Quickstart. . .
Now, here, in Italy, is approaching “Lucca Games 2018” (Lucca is in Tuscany) that is the biggest R.P.G. Event of Northern Italy (there are bigger events in Rome, but there R.P.G. are SERIOUSLY overshadowed by Console Videogames). . .
The event will be “Inside Halloween” between the End of October and the start of November (31th October to 3 November is the norm). . .
Years ago I was in contact with a “■■■■■■■■” base of Fans of Mutant Chronicles that had, more or less, Backed the Kickstarter of EVERYTHING related to Mutant Chronicles by Modiphius. . .
They said to Me that there were SERIOUS Legal Problems because they translated in Italian some FREE Material by Modiphius, but were sued by People that, in Italy, had the Legal Properties of the FORMER Material by precedent R.P.G. Products of the Brand (who had, on their own, Legal Litigations, with whom had the Legal Properties of PLASTIC MINIATURES of Mutant Chronicles). . .
. . . . .
I now ask the same question, about Modiphius stance of an EVENTUAL Translation of FREE Material by enthusiast fans, to diffuse the Game between Young “Potential Recruits” (the level of Written Scholarization of Italian School in English is rising, but still TOO Poor !!) and creation of Italian-Written Forums for discussing the acquisition of PDF Products by Modiphius and Game Events of the R.P.G. Game. . .
. . . . .
The Official Stance of Corvus Belli Miniatures, as more or less proclaimed by their Moderators and Staff Members on their Official Forum (where ALL Games, P.B.P. and whatsoever discussion is to be found on the “Sub-Forum” dedicated to Modiphius, under the label of “Partners”) is that EVERYTHING that is APPROVED to be Published by Modiphius fall under the R.P.G. Categorization. . .
So, essentially, what is Good for Corvus Belli to be published under the shared concept of “Infinity, the R.P.G.” is Good in English AS IN OTHER Lanaguages, provided is Modiphius Staff that OFFICIALLY approves what was approved beforehand by C.B. Scriptwriters and Authors. . .
. . . . .
In Italy at the moment the Infinity MINIATURE Tabletop Wargame is, rather poorly, endorsed and half-supported by “Gametrade Distributions” that decided to focus on the Manga Fantasy Card Game “Force Of Will”; a couple of Years ago the owner of that brand personally said to Me that He is ALMOST disinterested in WHATSOEVER stuff about Infinity. . .
The situation is so bad that is IMPOSSIBLE in Italy to have the Rule Manuals, that have to be side-imported by French and German distributors, and Miniature Boxes have to be imported with the Label of “Tabletop Boxes” like Risk or Monopoly to circumvent bans and legal issues. . .
. . . . .
I ask now what I could relate to the various Fans of Infinity R.P.G. that I will found at the Lucca Event, about further diffusing the FREE Materials by Modiphius, by translating AT LEAST the Quickstart in Italian. . .
It is very probable that an EVENTUAL approved Material in Italian OUGHT to be in printable format, as Pdf. reading amongst the youngest of potential fans is still quite limited. . .
. . . . .
EVERYTHING that will be approved to be translated will be distributed FREELY at R.P.G. Conventions, to enhance the knowledge of a fascinating Game Universe Background married to one of the leading systems of one of the worldwide famous R.P.G. Developers. . .
We will do it to avail a better comprehension and OBVIOUSLY to entice prospective Gamemasters and Players to check the English Manuals to BUY Pdf. Material either directly from Modiphius or “Ancillary Systems” (such as Drivethru, that is the “Dropbox” of the Free Quickstart). . .
I respectfully await whatsoever decision on this issue by Chris Birch and the R.P.G. Developers. . .
