I am interested in creating some 6"x6" spell and monster cards for use with DCC. I have a couple of questions for those with knowledge on the topic:
- Are 3PP allowed to use the DCC logo?
- Are 3PP allowed to mimic the trade dress (fonts, layout, etc) of the DCC rulebook?
- Has anyone, to your knowledge, created spell or monster cards for DCC?
The "compatible with" logo that you've seen on other third-party items is available if your products are approved by Goodman Games.
IIRC, you are not allowed to mimic Goodman Games' trade dress.
I haven't seen those, but I have heard them talked about. So pure speculation: Others have wanted to put DCC spells and monsters onto cards, but they were shot down. Of course the way to find out for sure if this is viable is to contact them and propose what you want to do...
But there are other spell resources you're up against, such as the Crawler app, and the fact that people print off the spells they need for handy reference from their pdf copies of the rules.
