Burnt Offerings and Skinsaw Murders PDFs Updated

Wizards of the Coast released their Dungeons & Dragons fan site policy (and accompanying fan site kit) earlier today, and I've updated the blog and both completed conversions to reflect that. The new versions incorporate a couple minor changes, but the new policy compliance is really the only major change. This project now operates under fan site licenses from both Paizo and WotC, which is what I had hoped to eventually do since I began it.

Does this site actually count as a fan site? Under the letter of WotC's rules, it looks as though this site would have to be a GSL site:

Please note that this Fan Site Policy does not allow you to publish, distribute or sell your own free-to-use games, modules or applications for any of Wizards' brands including, but not limited to, Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. If you want to engage in any of these activities related to Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition, such use is subject to the Game System License

This site definitely cannot make use of the GSL, as it descriptively references a number of terms which do not appear in the SRD.

And really, whether my conversions count as a "game, module or application" is arguable. It's content for 4th Edition, definitely, but doesn't explicitly fall into one of those categories.

Either way, it's not something I'm going to worry about. Using the fan policy allows me to throw that little D&D logo up on the site and documents. If WotC feels that it's not appropriate for this project, I'll simply go back to operating under fair use as far as WotC's material goes.
