What if I want to make money off of it?

The truth is I would love that. Part of Sword & Source's mission is to help creators like you earn a living.

The reason there is a restriction on commercial work is to protect against extreme cases. Without the restriction someone could scrape this website, package it up as a PDF or a book, and put it up for sale. That would upset me.

If you are interested in using any subset of the content for commercial purposes, reach out. I'm sure we could find a way to make it happen that would please both of us.
