Ok so I looked through the question board and saw nothing on this so I’m going to be that guy and ask in case other new people who don’t know can find.

If I am writing a fan based story using characters from any said game/story that has been created, so I have to put the disclaimer that I do not own the characters/settings and such?

I feel like obviously you should mention what it is from (eg. when I started time warped I said it was based in World of Warcraft) but then I see many other started fan fics that say this kind of disclaimer and I get worried if I need to put it on mine also. This is also for future reference if/when I make more fan based stories on things.

Ah, I see, Thank you very much for the fast response. I’m fairly new to this kind of stuff so might as well ask about it, right? :D

Thank you again Deux_bag! ;)
