What can I do with G&GR copyrighted materials? i.e. Can I make Fan Art? Can I write stories about the characters? Can I use “X” on my web site?

Our only stipulation is that any works created utilizing our trademarks or copyrights maintain their appropriate protections and they are never used for personal enrichment or profit.

I was thinking about making movies and/or video games based on one of your games?


Due to the on-going efforts of Grimskald™ and other rightfully licensed third parties we request that you do not attempt to make video games or film adaptations based on the intellectual properties of Grimskald™ without first advising us. If you have a meaningful business interest then inquire through the appropriate avenues.


I am a 3D print retailer, what can I use from your site to enhance my site?


Authorized 3d print retailers may use any logos, text, or pictures in order to enhance their ability to market our product so long as they maintain the trademarks and copyright protections on their site as well.


I just want to sell stuff on e-bay, can I use content from your site to do that?


At this time we ask that you do not use our copyrighted images and trademarks in relation to any online auctions or marketplace selling. Never associate third party products or intellectual properties with our products or properties in your listings. If you really want to resell your old stuff online please take your own pictures.


I would like to make a web site using one of your trademarks in the domain, is that cool?


Unfortunately, using one of our trademarks in your domain name might lead to confusion as to who runs the site. Unless you are specifically given written permission you are not allowed to use our trademarks in association to your website domain name.


Unsolicited ideas - I have a great idea for game x!


Please do not send Grimskald or Gamers Resistance unsolicited ideas. We already have numerous ongoing projects behind the scenes. By sending us your ideas it may be perceived we have stolen intellectual property from you. If you decide to send something anyway, please be aware it will most likely be thrown out without consideration and will not be treated with any sort of confidentiality whatsoever.


I would like to live stream or record Torch & Shield games/reviews/unboxings/prints/demos and post them on the web. Is that allowed?

Yes. Feel free to record and stream all of the action of your games at home or club to the web. Please understand the following:

We would ask that you do not add any Grimskald or Gamers Resistance assets/logos/material to the stream or recording that is not “in camera”. Effectively, editing, overlaying, or otherwise manipulating our logos, art in order to create an on screen graphic or graphic overlay is not permitted, unless you also clearly label UNOFFICIAL either above or below the logo.

If you are recording or streaming from your local game store make sure to get the owner’s permission first and make sure that everyone being recorded or streamed is comfortable with appearing in your production.


In the event that you are recording at a convention please make sure that you are complying with the convention rules in that regard.


At official Grimskald events we may ask that recording and live streaming of our games be limited in some capacity in order to facilitate the event or allow for official coverage of the event.

Referencing direct wordings of the rules and cards is permitted but please keep the references in context to the game being played or the review being conducted.
