noted otherwise, all rulebook images are created and copyrighted
by Mike Rayhawk. These images may be construed by hostile parties
as bearing some superficial resemblance to products that are trademarks

toys. This does not represent any kind of endorsement or approval
by the LEGO Group. BrikWars is not specifically geared towards the
"LEGO®" product line, nor towards any specific product
line of any producer of plastic construction toys or any other type
of 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 artists personal, subjective, and unsolicited preference

only as examples - any type of toys, including products from other
manufacturers' lines of plastic construction toys, could be used
Early versions of BrikWars were largely inspired by the games 'Lego
Wars' and 'Lego Wars II,' copyright ©1991, 1995 Eric O'Dell
and R. Todd Ogrin (hereafter be referred to as 'Our Divine Ancestors').
A small and ever-decreasing amount of material in This Stuff references
ideas and philosophies presented in these games. Any such references
may still be under the copyright of Our Divine Ancestors, and are
used without their explicit permission. Lego Wars and Lego Wars
II were not authorized or sanctioned by the LEGO Group. The word
LEGO® is a registered trademark of the LEGO Group, and its inclusion
in the titles of Lego Wars and Lego Wars II was quite specifically
protested and prohibited by the LEGO Group.
