Just because DR is dead & offline for good doesn't mean that NCsoft doesn't still own the IP rights to the corpse.....

Tread very carefully in making Torchlight (or any game) look or play TOO MUCH like DR via mods else the long arm of Copyright law may reach out and smite thee.... I don't trust anyone at NCsoft (based on how they mismanaged DR) & neither should any of you trust them to NOT come after you.

I love the idea of keeping the memory of DR alive but at the same time those who try to do so need to protect themselves from legal liability as much as possible...

Sad sign of the times we live in eh?

Yeah, very good point to be made. I think that as long as the modding was kept to the humor, with changed names and a similar naming system then things would be fine. NCSoft can't claim IP on generated loot names I wouldn't think, about the only thing they could claim IP would be the games name, the name of the 'main' characters, the name of the town, and dungeon names I would think.

As long as any modding stayed in the Artistic Tribute (or whatever the copyright area is) for DR then it should be fine.

I think there is an exemption to due with non commercial mods, but I'm not sure.
There is a Diablo 3 hud skin for TL and Blizzard doesn't seem to care.

I'd personally like to start making something cool like a bomb sponsored by Pepsi.

How about a mod that plays the DR music? And if you do it, please for MAC too!
