Default Re: Dungeon Fantasy Non-Lawsuit Historical Books

I guess I would like a sort of fake Earth that is really similar to Earth but where there are no problems with people getting offended. I think a setting that is like the early Renaissance would be perfect. The Age of Exploration would be a great setting for Dungeon Fantasy for me. I would enjoy a setting with interesting cultures instead of just the standard Dungeon Fantasy tavern and town.

There’s judicial combat. That should be dramatic.

Earlier posters have already pointed out that folklore is free of copyright. But I just wanted to point out that there are a number of translations of these tales from around the turn of the 20th century, so all public domain by now, while the really famous one by Richard F. Burton (no, not that Richard Burton) was published in 1888, so also free from copyright. In fact, it's available in Project Gutenberg. If you want a Thousand Nights and A Night of flavor, then have at it.
