Wanted to keep this under wraps until it was close to done, but since I posted a question in the script help subforum, I figured I may as well jump into the water.
So, like the title says, I’ve been working on and off on revamping the Blackguard series for several years now, be it fixing spelling and grammar (and there was a LOT of that to fix), creating new wardrobes for almost every character, all manner of quality of life improvements (such as adding a waypoint at the gate of the Broken Femur camp so you don’t have to walk the whole way in and out every time), adjusting the mods for the advent of visible cloaks, and admittedly allowing myself some creative license with lines that I felt were a tad cringy (Valshera referring to the player character as “my sexy boy/girl” comes to mind). I’ve always really enjoyed this series, for all its flaws, and I guess I figured that if I could just dust it off a little - it would shine.
I guess my main question is: is publishing this revamped Blackguard series on the Steam Workshop (and also uploading it to the NWVault) when it’s ready - a legit thing to do, morally and legally? I mean, the creator is Steve B, and I certainly intend to give him full credit for the originals, but I don’t know of any way to contact him in order to get his blessing (couldn’t find any contact info on his profile on the site). And regardless, this is something of a passion project of mine, and I’d really like to share it with the community. I just want to make sure I’m not doing anything wrong here.
Thanks in advance, everyone!
