Unfortunately, all attempts to further employ the Dune copyrights have not been fruitous.
It seems that the Herbert Limited Partnership and Herbert Foundation are not willing to further capitalize on this franchise in any way shape or form.
Given what's been done with these rights in the recent past, I can agree with their position.

like jbadams said, you're better off starting your own universe...

You need permission from The Herbert Limited Partnership to proceed or you risk being shut down or potentially even facing legal action.

There's no real harm in trying, but it's pretty unlikely that you'll be given permission. See the faq on FrankHerbert.net:

[b]A. [/b] No plans. [b]The rights for DUNE games are currently tied up[/b].

[b]Q. [/b]Are there any plans to produce the DUNE RPG?
[b]A. [/b]Unfortunately [b]the rights are no longer available[/b] and are now controlled by the producers of the DUNE and CHILDREN OF DUNE miniseries.
[/quote](Emphasis mine.)


You're probably best of to simply invent your own setting and characters not based upon Dune.

I locked the thread because it's a necroed thread, and the link appears to violate a third party's IP. Consulting the other mods to see if the link should be deleted.

 

[Edit] Other mods agree that the link is highly questionable.  Deleted link.
