Should you wish to translate our material, please follow these directions:

  1. Use of FoS “trademarks” names.

    We do not allow anyone under any circumstances to make a netbook from translated material and put a name used by the Fraternity of Shadows on it (namely, you can’t use the "Quoth the Raven" (QtR) name, or the "Undead Sea Scrolls" (USS) and the "Lost Children of the Night").

  2. Permission from the authors.

    For each text you’d like to translate, we would ask you to get permission from each authors. If they agree, you can then translate and host these articles on your site, provided you follow the other guidelines of this agreement. Should you need help in reaching some of them, let us know.

    The same request for images inserted in the text. If you want to use them, please ask the author for permission.

    Since the texts belongs to the authors themselves, we (the FoS) can't give any language exclusivity.

  3. Ethics reminder
