A quick note about self publishing Renaissance stories: IMPORTANT

Note from Stuart:

A few of you have sent us e-mails, or have kept to yourself, about self-publishing your Renaissance stories. Please understand the fact that at this moment  I retain the copyright to the shared world of Renaissance and the naming of the locations.

I am working on some methods so that we could work together as a collective in publishing. This is one of the news items that I have been holding back simply because it is a lot of work to get this going.

If you are interested in pursuing this (this meaning publishing on your own)  you must contact me first.

Thank you all. This is only the beginning.
