Hi all,

I'm considering of completely restyling Omen, using a slightly altered photoshop template for MtG cards and art from a specific (for consistency reasons) deviantART artist. Card text will be completely translated in Greek, although if I can find the time I will also make a second copy of the cards in English.

Although I would be most happy to share this, for reasons that can be easily understood I will not be uploading any of this in a file format that can be downloaded and printed.

What I've been meaning to ask fellow geeks that are more experienced than me in such projects is this: If I were to upload some photos of these cards in a non-downloadable, non printable form (for example spread out on a table, or of a game underway) do you think I should ask for permission first? (mainly of the creator of Omen or the DeviantART artist)

Thank you in advance

As far as I understand, re-themes are completely legal. If you look on BGG you will find many of those that are freely downloadable. Even, a simple translation is also ok PROVIDED that there is no way to buy the game in greek.

However, the best course of action would be contacting John. Although legally you may be allowed this or that, it is always nice to have the consent of the game's creator, right? He is a nice guy that will promptly answer your request

Agreed. Contact John. It's the right thing to do AND he'll give you the answers you need.
