Unauthorizations and Unsanctionednesses
The concepts, rules, information, and general philosophy presented or referred to in this text (which material shall hereafter be referred to as "This Stuff") are completely unauthorized and unsanctioned by anyone, anywhere, with the possible exception of Mike Rayhawk, who pledges to authorize and/or sanction them only half-heartedly and on a very occasional basis. This Stuff is especially unauthorized by the LEGO Group of companies, Mega Bloks Inc., DSI Toys, or by any of the other dozens of producers of plastic construction toys, or in fact by anyone even remotely connected with any producer of any type of toys, plastic or construction or otherwise. Furthermore, if there is anyone else out there we somehow missed, we apologize and preemptively disclaim any apparent or implicit authorization or sanctioning from said parties. In the unlikely event that some presently unspecified party attempt to sanction or authorize This Stuff at some point in the future, we reserve the right to acknowledge or disavow their sanctioning or authorization at our discretion.

Images
The cover image "The Dread Pirate Two-By-Two" is Copyright ©2005 Mike Rayhawk. Except where noted otherwise, all rulebook images are created and copyrighted by Mike Rayhawk. These images may be construed by hostile parties as bearing some superficial resemblance to products that are trademarks of the LEGO Group or some other producer of plastic construction toys. This does not represent any kind of endorsement or approval by the LEGO Group. BrikWars is not specifically geared towards the "LEGO®" product line, nor towards any specific product line of any producer of plastic construction toys or any other type of toys. In the unlikely event that it can be proven that these pictures are intended to portray products in the "LEGO®" product line, then that portrayal should be interpreted as representing the artist’s personal, subjective, and unsolicited preference for the "LEGO®" product line. These images are provided only as examples - any type of toys, including products from other manufacturers' lines of plastic construction toys, could be used instead.

Conceptual Progenitors
Early versions of BrikWars were largely inspired by the games 'Lego Wars' and 'Lego Wars II,' copyright ©1991, 1995 Eric O'Dell and R. Todd Ogrin (hereafter be referred to as 'Our Divine Ancestors'). A small and ever-decreasing amount of material in This Stuff references ideas and philosophies presented in these games. Any such references may still be under the copyright of Our Divine Ancestors, and are used without their explicit permission. Lego Wars and Lego Wars II were not authorized or sanctioned by the LEGO Group. The word LEGO® is a registered trademark of the LEGO Group, and its inclusion in the titles of Lego Wars and Lego Wars II was quite specifically protested and prohibited by the LEGO Group.
