OK, so I just asked whether or not I should introduce Legend to rpg.SE, and got a favorable response, which is cool.

So, follow-up question. During Rule of Cool’s Legend’s alpha stage, Mongoose Publishing changed the name of their Rune Quest II to Legend due to some copyright problems or something. Rule of Cool’s was definitely the earlier RPG by that name, but Mongoose’s was released first. As it turns out, there is an even earlier RPG that, as far as anyone can tell, had the name first.

This isn’t really a problem, since the name is ridiculously generic, except that I’m wondering how I should tag my questions relating to Rule of Cool’s Legend, without messing up any potential future questions about Mongoose’s Legend.

EDIT: Per C. Ross’s comment, this question is related, and it was decided in that case to give the shorter tag to the system that seemed to get more discussion. However, neither game titled Legend has any discussion yet, so I'd appreciate suggestions on which, if either, should get the legend tag.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @C.Ross: Thanks, I never would have known to search for "dread" on this subject, but I agree it's related. There are some differences, though, so I've updated my question. \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


If there is no Legend tag than first come first served in this case.

When we get questions for the other system we will need to make a distinction, but until that time you're A OK to used

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for the answer; that sounds pretty good to me (obviously), but I'm going to hold off on accepting because I really want to make sure I've got a sense of the community's opinion on this. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ All right, 21 hours and no contrary response. I would have liked more than one upvote (other than mine), but presumably I can't do anything that can't be undone. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, this sounds fine. Tagging is pretty laissez-faire, and only needs intervention when a problem becomes manifest. Before then, no worries. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 12, 2012 at 3:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ @KRyan not even mods can do (much) that cannot be undone. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ It doesn't seem like questions for either game are stacking up and vying for the tag, however it might be nice if a redirection or something were in the Legend tag to indicate that the Mongoose product can be found under tag X, or split them into Legend-OGL and Legend-RQ so a tag search would present a clear option. \$\endgroup\$ May 2, 2013 at 5:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Runeslinger So far as I know, there are zero questions for Mongoose's Legend. If I'm wrong about that, some kind of separation might be warranted. \$\endgroup\$
