Everybody is trying to get around writing their own stories without infringing any copyrights by WotC. That got me wondering...

How hard could it be to obtain a license to actually publish a book based on our campaign in the D&D Mystara setting (out of print)?

Back in the day not all published novels were all that great :-)

    \$\begingroup\$ @SouthpawHare I'm not sure they'd be useful to ask. They have established relationships and license/publishing agreements, and any “in the old days” info regarding how they connected with TSR won't be relevant to how to get a license from WotC today (or even last year or next, as business policies can change). \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Nov 3 '17 at 21:11

    \$\begingroup\$ Asking how to get into the RPG business, even as a novelist, is not within the scope of this website. \$\endgroup\$ – Thomas Jacobs Nov 3 '17 at 21:20
