New "Powered by GURPS" and Print-on-Demand

Archived from groups: rec.games.frp.gurps (More info?)

Does anyone know where the actual guidelines are for publishing a
"Powered by GURPS" book?

I'm thinking with this Print-on-Demand tech, we might just start seeing
projects like this a lot more in the future. Heck, maybe even some of
my own (that would be why I am soliciting info, natch).

Thanks.

    You write to SJ and try to get a license. That's the only way.

    Well, I have a license from SJGames and I use print-on-demand technology.
    The big hangup here (i.e., the reason what you want to do isn't going to
    work) is the SJGames is really big on "the cost of administering your
    license" which means that you have to pay them royalties on something over
    2500 books a year whether you sell that many or not. Being a game company
    in business for many years with a strong existing market (and doing gurps
    books for Star Fleet Universe) we still have to push pretty hard to get
    books written and published to meet this goal. I suppose you could send me
    an email at design@starfleetgames.com and we could discuss if your idea
    for a GURPS book (even if not related to star fleet) could get done that
    way, since I already meet the minimums and have a distributor network and
    huge mail order market, and you wouldn't have to do any of that.

    Ah, the less-than-obvious approach...

    Will certainly give that a try.
