I typically don't do screenshots for the adventures. Tends to give it away for the players. :wink:

Each Tomb is 5-6 chambers/encounters. Player and DM maps done in DunDjinni. Uses the default d20 ruleset.

I see there are maps... are any custom tokens included?

No ... sorry. For the most part I don't have the resources for tokens at this time. However, TONS of people are posting links for tokens, so I'm sure you can find them if you search the forum.

I dont think it gives it away for the players as potiental buyers almost always are DMs.
I just have a problem buying something that hasnt appealed my eye in some way.

You guys are at the forefront of creating products for FG, which is awesome, and the price is right! I believe though that your customer base will be looking for custom art as well as the written content (artwork in an FG module being images, maps, and tokens that can be used on maps such as monster tokens, treasure tokens, trap tokens, etc.).

Then again, maybe not... just something to think about.

It's really not a question of "thinking about it" gurney, it's simple money mechanics.

If I have art to work with on a project (like I did with Complete Minions), then I'm more than happy to include it because it doesn't cost me money. If I have no art, then I have to pay to have it done. Doing this would cause me to increase the budget for the project, and hence increase the cost to my FG customers -- likely double.

In other words, instead of $2.50 for a short adventure, I would then have to charge $5. Unfortunately, art is (or can be) one of the greatest expenses for a publisher, and right now I think it's more important to keep the cost down rather than make things look "pretty" by adding fluff artwork. If these were printed products, that would be another story.

That said, in the near future I hope to have more publisher's products converted to FG, and hopefully that will include art and maps that are already paid for by the publisher.

I hope that explains my position gurney.

:D

Actually, a follow-up question... what type of application is your team using to create maps? Just wondering what style of drawings the maps are in: artistic in nature, like the maps seen on this site, using photoshop or Fireworks, or from a mapping program like CC2, Dundjinni, and the like?

I'm using DunDjinni with the license-free art and free art posted in their forums by users. I create the base map there, then add lettering and other things in Photoshop. Been working well for me so far. 8)

Thanks Thore. Dundjinni is a great product.

I wish I wasn't color blind, though. Some of the color palette combinations in Dundjinni maps are hard on my eyes.
