concepts, rules, and general philosophy presented in or
linked to by the pages of this rulebook are completely unauthorized
and unsanctioned by anyone, anywhere, except by Mike Rayhawk,
who promises to authorize and sanction them only half-heartedly
and on a very occasional basis. By "anyone, anywhere,"
we especially refer to the LEGO Company, TYCO, Ritvik, and
in fact by any producer of any type of plastic construction
toys, and for that matter by anyone who is remotely connected
with any producer of any type of toys, plastic or construction
or otherwise. Furthermore, if there is anyone else
out there we somehow missed, we apologize and preemptively
disclaim any apparent or implicit authorization or sanctioning
from them. We reserve the right to let some presently
unspecified party authorize or sanction them at some unspecified
point in the future, but it seems unlikely at best; at present,
there isn't the slightest hint of authorizing or sanctioning
going on here, or anywhere near here.
associated with this game and included in some versions
of this rulebook may be construed by hostile parties as
bearing some superficial resemblance to products that have
been copyrighted by the LEGO Company. This does not
represent any kind of endorsement or approval by the LEGO
Company. This game is not specifically geared towards
the "LEGO" product line, nor towards any specific product
line of any producer of plastic construction toys.
In the unlikely event that it can be proven that these pictures
are intended to portray products in the "LEGO" product line,
then that portrayal should be interpreted as representing
the authors' personal, subjective, and unsolicited preference
for the "LEGO" product line. These images are provided
only as examples - similar pieces from any manufacturers'
line of plastic construction toys could be used instead.
original edition of BrikWars was largely based on the games
'Lego Wars' and 'Lego Wars II,' copyrighted ©1991, 1995
Eric O'Dell and R. Todd Ogrin. Some material in this
manual is still based on material from these games.
Any such material is still copyright ©1991, 1995 Eric O'Dell
and R. Todd Ogrin, and is still used without their permission
(our apologies to you two guys, but we can't seem to find
any current e-mail addresses for either of you). The
word "LEGO" is a registered trademark of the LEGO Company.
Despite the inclusion of the word "LEGO" in the titles of
the games 'Lego Wars' and 'Lego Wars II,' these games were
not authorized or sanctioned by the LEGO Company, and in
fact the LEGO Company spent a good deal of time and effort
to voice their specific disapproval of these two games.

even after all that, you still have any objections, then
frankly I'm a little surprised! I can only suggest
that you switch to decaf, and maybe get some therapy to
see if you can't work out your persecution complex.
