License Explanation

The license of the original “Native” module system released by TaleWorlds is
unknown, but it remains their property. The “3 clause BSD” license in
LICENSE.txt applies to changes from that base for the “Persistent World”
module by Steven Schwartfeger (Vornne) and for the “Persistent Kingdoms”
module by the Phoenix Dev Team (http://pw-phoenix.com/).

Basically, you can use the module system for your project as long as the
license is kept and credit is given to Persistent World and Persistent Kingdoms
as the base, but the name “Persistent World”, “Persistent Kingdoms” or close
derivatives is not used without permission to name or promote your project,
to deceive people into thinking that yours is an official version.

Using the same module directory name as an official release on a dedicated
server would only be permitted for minor bug fixes and enhancements that seem
certain not to cause compatibility problems with the corresponding official
module. Server hosters using a module tweaked from an official release should
assist in fixing related bugs reported while playing on that server, whether
by fixing the scripts, revealing the changed parts, or reverting the changes.
