Default Dungeon Fantasy Non-Lawsuit Historical Books

I would like to request some Dungeon Fantasy books that use non-lawsuit historical books. For example, there could be a desert setting complete with a monotheistic god (who for lawsuit purposes) is not based on any real world god or religion (wink wink nod nod…). It could seem superficially like GURPS Arabian Nights but the god and religion and the monsters and cultures would be lawsuit free. Or maybe there could be something like GURPS Silk Road with cultures and religions that seem very similar to real world religions and cultures but from a legal standpoint they are not.

Just invent some names for the god/gods (if you want to avoid hurting someone sensibilities) and you are good to go.

All folklore is lawsuit free.

I would like to see some books that have appropriate magic items, monsters, treasures, and classes that reflect the culture of the settings. A writer like Matt Rigsby would be great to have to do this sort of project. He could just Dungeon Fantasyize GURPS Silk Road. The pure historical books don’t give stats for monsters or magic items and so on.

I think all GURPS historical books have the folklore and stats for many of the most iconic and known creatures and monsters.

The ones I have do at least.

GURPS Aranbian Nights have them, the gods may have a change of name (if you want to) but the creatures don't need that to be lawsuit free.

Nordlond has a lot of not-actually [historical period] areas, but they are mostly not filled in. But maybe Doug can be persuaded to release books for them. Stranger things have happened.

I want a book about historical legal dramas. It worked for Iceland.

And they're all available online. The challenge being that they're in Icelandic.

That's why God gave us Google Translate.

I meant for GURPS campaigns. We don't actually have very many rules for legal drama, a little in Mysteries, and a little in Social Engineering, and really nothing about period ones.

Contest of Skill - Public Speaking vs. Public Speaking. Each side gets to bring character witnesses - people who swear that their guy is in the right. Use the SSRT to determine bonus from character witnesses. Something like that?
