What is allowed?
1. Since this is a left4dead 1 + 2 fan project I think it would make more sense if the project kept on track and simply involved all of the characters from the first two games. In other words no original characters, however, it is acceptable to have parodies of other games/movies/tv shows or cross overs (ex: left4dead 2 meets dead rising, etc.).
2. The maximum rating is strong PG13 or a soft porn R rating. When I mean soft porn I mean people making out half naked or hints before you get a cut scene of them laying naked in bed the next day. It’s basically nothing too graphic in the scenario that someone’s parents accidentally get a hold of the book or there are minors participating in the project. We are going to submit a few pages for VALVE to see but for those few pages that are a bit on the unsafe side, we’ll dismiss sending.
We don’t want to creep them out too much.
3. Can I draw on the back of my page in the notebook? The paper inside of the book is durable enough to handle ink/pencil but I would say no, simply because I don’t want to take any risks and have given a fair amount of free pages to draw on. I also have taken into consideration that not all artists apply the same pressure when they draw because for those that draw lightly, there are those that draw like they are carving a pumpkin (I’m guilty of this).
4. If you have any doubts/concerns please contact me with your question/concerns because it’s better to ask then to not have asked at all.
