CHARACTER SPECIFIC TOS
This section has priority over the remainder of the ToS in the event that they contradict.
Licensee in this section refers to the user on clikrit.com

No materials or characters used in these ARPGs are considered to be standalone products.  Any characters are individually licensed to a user, for the duration of the licensing period.  This period is initially indefinite, but can be terminated under a number of conditions, including but not limited to: 

TOS violation in any EvoCrit associated ARPG
TOS violation on ANY evocrit.com site
TOS violation in ARPG related groups
Violation of conditions on continued use after administrative action
Violation of copyrights related to any EvoCrit or Aquapyron project

We reserve the right to terminate the use license(s) at any time for any reason, though we will try to provide a reason should we be forced to terminate.

Universe status is used as a shorthand to denote whether such authorizations MAY be granted:
Closed Universe:  Authorization will never be granted, under any circumstances.
Semi-Closed Universe:  Authorization may be granted, for specific settings.  These specific settings will always be listed on the project.
Semi-Open Universe: Authorization may be granted, pending certain criteria, and on DIRECT request to EvoCrit administration.
Open Universe:  Authorization is automatically assumed to be granted, however there WILL be rules about when this authorization is not granted, or is revoked.

Licensees are permitted to create and post art of any licensed character at any stage of development that the character has reached or passed.  However, they are required to remove any materials they have posted should the license be revoked.
Additionally, if the licensee wishes to post art anywhere excluding the EvoCrit forums, they are required to provide full credit for the character's design to AquaPyrofan.

Alteration of the design associated with a revoked license to convert them to another species without making SIGNIFICANT changes to design, marking, AND color scheme is forbidden, and can result in the revocation of any or all licenses held by the licensee in question.

Posting the original art or materials, including materials from EvoCrit and materials posted by EvoCrit administration on other sites, on ANY site can result in the immediate revocation of any or all licenses held by the licensee in violation of these rules.  Exceptions may be granted, with the explicit pre approval of EvoCrit administration.  This does not extend to linking the images, as all evocrit.com sites provide linkable images used to allow guests to interact with characters on those sites.

Any licensed character that was created with input from the licensee that is found to be based in part or whole on a copyrighted property will have their license immediately revoked, and the licensee may face revocation of other licenses.

Should a licence be revoked, there will be no monetary compensation for the licensee from EvoCrit or its administrators.
Compensation MAY be given in the form of items on the EvoCrit sites or on other ARPGs, at the discretion of EvoCrit administration.

We reserve the right to update these terms without advance notice. Please read through them from time to time to maintain a working knowledge of the them. Continued use of the site after such updates is considered consent to the updated terms. If at any time you wish to retract your consent to these terms, do not continue to access the site, and contact Katherine to arrange the deletion of your account.

If you need to contact EvoCrit management, the fastest way to get in contact is through the forums.
