I was thinking about creating entries for the licensed Traveller software: Traveller Navigator, the MegaTraveller games and I think BITS had one. I have the disks, manuals, and boxes for the first two anyway. I also found the webpages on archive.org for Planet III Software. So...

  • Can I create entries for them? I think I would have to create a Template to distinguish software from print/pdf
  • If so, what can images can I do and Fair Use? Box front and back (Navigator had no box, came inside the manual), manual covers, a cute picture of the opened product and elements displayed, a screenshot or two of the software running? Planet III's page has a statement releasing Navigator as freeware
  • Uploading Images - if so will I still need to append the RPGBookImage tag thing or use something else?

Please review Category:Software as we have some of the Traveller software already included. I've generally just included them with the "books", as they belong in the Category:Ludography. But yes, if they're missing add them. Please include the {{RpgBookImage}} on the images, as it is our standard fair use for images template. I've never include more than the cover or splash page in the pages in the articles, but if you want to include one or two more that wouldn't be over the fair use line.
