What would one have to do in order to get into contact about wanting to write a guide for a city in Godbound? I mean for publication?

paging +Kevin Crawford would be a start.

Non-commercial publications can do whatever they want. Commercial gets stickier- I have to be jealous of the proper-noun IP to keep my rights untangled. Somebody could write a commercial guide for a city for Godbound, using Godbound rules and terms, but it'd have to be for a city in their own realm rather than one in Arcem, and it'd have to steer clear of proper-noun IP from the core book. They could have their own Lovecraftian unknowable malignancies, but not specifically Uncreated, and so forth.

+Kevin Crawford is there a way to work w/ you in designing said so that it can be under the Sine Nomine header? and what might that entail if such a thing were possible?

Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to do line development as it ought to be done. I'm so swamped with work at present that it's the devil to just get my own materials shaped up properly.

+Kevin Crawford So what terms specifically are not available for a commercial publication?

Also, come to think of it, for a realm far away from Arcem is it THAT implausible that they use widely different terminology?

In general, you'd need to use your own setting for a commercial product, rather than Arcem or the meta-setting implied in the book. Using Godbound's rules is workable, as is explicitly billing the supplement as Godbound-compatible, but the content would have to be 100% yours, setting-wise.

However, for non profit fan publications, the use of the meta-setting is fine right?

Yes. If it's non-commercial, people can use anything in the setting or quote whatever pertinent information they need from the free version.
