Question:

If i ever want to make a campaign whose storyline is copied from some game, but not character appearances, but same names, is that considered copyright?

If there are similarities I don't think it is a great issue. Daniel might know better though.

sorry, i can have suggestion if you type in here all texts from there you want to use.

if the campaign name is that like "Bloody weather" that is ok.
but if it is "Sir Domo Arigato alligator campaign" than it is very specific that might not be good.

It is a campaign with levels, and i would like to follow them:

E.g.

1st level - The Rat(Rat is a name of the lord)

then should i name first map

The Rat, or The Iguana?
