This FAQ will be updated over time, for example at the point when my art kits become available for sale on external websites.
Q:“What sort of images and file types are found in the art kits and addons?”
A:“All images found in the art kits and addons are png, with transparency.”
Q:“I’ve read that the Minimap art kit comes bundled with the base Fantasy art kit, is that so?”
A:“Yes, you will receive the Minimap art kit for free with a purchase of the base Fantasy art kit. You may also purchase the Minimap art kit by itself, if you have no need for the base Fantasy art kit.”
Q:“Can I post anything made with the artwork found in this art kits online?”
A:“The answer to that is no, but, as a cartographer you will be able to add maps to your portfolio if the maps are made in a way and size that they are unable to be used as campaign maps and quest maps for other people.”
Q:“Can I use the artwork for anything shareware, freeware of paid for product such as a campaign module I plan to sell, game I plan to sell or in a book or magazine?”
A:“Yes, but only if you have acquired a non-exclusive license to do so. Otherwise, the art kits are for private use only, meaning you and your friends can enjoy the artwork during a game session at home or using a VTT software such as www.rpgwithme.com , www.fantasygrounds.com , www.epictable.com or www.d20pro.com.”
Q: “Where can I purchase the art kits?”
A: “The art kits will be made available for sale on a selected list of online Virtual Tabletop websites first off, such as the VTTs already part of the project. Those are listed on the main page of this website. You can also purchase the art kits directly from Raymond Gaustadnes, the creator of the art kits, through this website.”
Q:“Will the art kits be made available elsewhere later on?”
A:“Yes, but when and where is still unknown.”
Q:“Why are the art kits a bit expensive?”
A:“The cost reflects the contents I’d say. So the main reason is the massive number of image files in each art kit. The base Fantasy art kit has several thousand images in it, and it took a lot of time to create. The cost of each art kit was set with that in mind, the contents of them. Smaller art kits will probably cost around $1-5- larger art kits will probably cost around $12-15.”
Q:“I’m working on a game project, that may become a commercial project later on. Can I use the artwork found in these art kits, without a non-exclusive license, until I start making enough money to purchase that from you?”
A:“As much as I’d like to say yes, I have to say no. Making anything from the art kits available to others, online or offline must not be done without a non-exclusive license.”
Q:“Can I create a clipart library and make it available to others, using the tiles and tokens?”
A:“The answer to that is no.
Q:“Can I use the images in your artkits to create digital tokens or pogs?”
A:“The images found in the art kits have to be incorporated into a type of project in order to be legally used, together with a non-exclusive license. You may not use the tokens to create new sets of tokens.”
Q:“With a Developer license, can I create physical pogs, tokens, poker chips based on the tokens found in the art kits?”
Q:“Using your art kits, can I create extensions and modules that include the artwork and make them available to other people, as freeware, shareware or paid for products?
