Identification of Product Identity and Open Gaming Content.

Let’s keep it simple: anything at KJD-IMC.org written by Keith J. Davies and posted here is Open Gaming Content.  Any Product Identity belonging to someone else (and used here with permission, or not, if I made a mistake) is not Open Gaming Content and belongs to its owner.
