I’m happy to announce that EpicTable is a backer of the Kickstarter, “Game Master’s Campaign Fantasy Art Kit”. If you haven’t seen this yet, definitely check it out. Artist Raymond Gaustadnes has created a treasure trove of tokens and map tiles and other game art that’s going to really give your virtual tabletop a boost. Whether you’re looking for monster tokens, character tokens, or dungeon dressing for your battle map, you’re going to find something here.
Better yet, every time I check in on the kickstarter, he’s added more–it just keeps getting more valuable. If we could just trick him into letting the kickstarter run another couple months…. 😉
What does this all mean to you as an EpicTable user? Well, if you’re a licensed user of EpicTable, you’ll get the base fantasy art kit from the kickstarter as artwork integrated into EpicTable! Additionally, if you back the kickstarter, Raymond’s going to upgrade you to the next higher reward tier for free. Check out the details at the “Game Master’s Campaign Fantasy Art Kit” Kickstarter site! But don’t wait too long–there are only a few days left!

I’ve always had a certain fondness for the yeti, who along Bigfoot/Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster, rounds out the "Big Three" cryptozoological creatures. Living in the Himalayas, out of reach of modern society, the yeti or "abominable snowman" has a certain mystique and a few grains more plausibility than the other two.
I recently saw the third of the Brendan Fraser mummy movies, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which had a scene involving yetis, and well…at least it got me thinking about yetis…. …continue reading Yetian Inspiration

Back before EpicTable was “EpicTable”, when its name and image were still bits of uncongealed thought floating in the primordial ooze that was Realityforge LLC, I was looking for a mascot. I needed a logo, but what I wanted was a mascot. As a long-time Iron Maiden fan, I wanted my virtual tabletop to have its own Eddie—an iconic character to represent my product line through the many versions, twists and turns that lie ahead. Arguably, I spent way too much time trolling through online artist communities, but in the end, I found Adam Vehige. …continue reading Artist Spotlight: Adam Vehige

I don’t recall how I stumbled upon David Hartman’s site: http://www.sideshowmonkey.com/. Maybe I don’t remember how I got there because I spent the next couple hours lost in this dark little world he’s created.
Did I mention it’s dark? Yeah, a lot of David’s work is pretty dark, and it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea (which is an oddly inappropriate expression to use when talking about monsters, zombies, and the like), but there’s a comic/pulp feel his work that I really like. …continue reading Welcome to the Sideshow: The Dark Art of David Hartman
