Greetings I just finished my first Foundry episode I worked very hard on it. I have a new found respect for the game developers. I work in the IT Industry as a Exchange Admin and I gotta say doing this episode was time consuming and exhausting. I was attempting to convey the events that took place prior to Mackenzie Calhoun entering starfleet. Largely based on the Captain Table Book and House Of Cards. from New Frontier.
Isn't this sort of things off limits as per the EULA given:
"Other Prohibited uses of New Game Materials published using The Foundry:

My point being that the Books of Peter David are surely copyrighted, and do not fall under the specified list of:
"New Game Materials you create using the Foundry are subject to the following rules and restrictions:

Well, the OP is using someone else's characters and story as the foundation of his mission without their permission, and he made that public knowledge. Would you rather some GM or mod play his mission then turn him in to the copyright police, a.k.a. the CBS lawyers instead?
Since Cryptic has previously been sued for allowing people to so something almost exactly like this and is thus quite sensitive to the issue, giving the OP a friendly warning so he has a chance to change his work instead of losing it isn't tattling, it's being a good neighbor.
