JADE currently is provided as postcard-ware which basically means that you can play JADE for as long as you want if you send me a postcard from wherever you live, after you have enjoyed JADE for more than a couple of weeks (e.g. longer than two months). You can find the target address under the "Postcard Quest" button on the main screen of JADE. Additionally you are required to abide by the following licensing terms:
- You will not decompile or reverse engineer JADE.
- You will not use JADE as a whole or parts of JADE in other projects.
- You will not modify JADE or any parts of it.
- You will not redistribute JADE in any way. The download via http://www.adom.de is the sole source of distribution.
- You will not charge anyone for using JADE.
- You will not challenge the intellectual property rights of the author.
- You accept that JADE comes without any warranty of any kind and that the author cannot be held responsible for any damage to your system or data accidentally (by bug or system error) caused to your system or data.
Downloading, storing or starting JADE shows that you agree with above terms.
Supporting JADE Development
Statement of Thomas Biskup: I am developing JADE in my spare time. Since I have to work and pay bills like most people on Earth all donations are welcome. These donations will be used exclusively to further the development of JADE (e.g. by buying better development hardware or software, buying the spare time required to develop, etc.). Naturally you are not required to donate in order to be able to play JADE but it helps to do so nonetheless as each donation buys me a little more time to spend working on JADE. All donations currently are handled via Paypal:
Here you can download JADE (Java-based Ancient Domains Engine) in both its current incarnation and the older versions.

Keep in mind the following details:
- When asked by your browser what to do with a JNLP file, just open it.
- When asked whether to trust the software certificate (signed by Thomas Biskup) offered to you, you need to trust it and allow it to access your local system.
