English Rose is back with our next two installments of the Fantasy Civilization Series: Top Down Settlements & Top Down Interiors. After our very successful premier launch of Town & Cityscapes we have been hard at work creating our previous backer's most wanted future content of the series with top down assets and interiors. This time around the art packages are geared toward a more classic view giving more ease in use and production while also maintaining the same design concept from Town & Cityscapes allowing for complete integration between the two products. We also have strictly adhered to our original idea of a cohesive system-independent image packages for the use of creating maps and images of all types of settlements and environments with maximum flexibility in design. These image packages are all created at 300 dpi for optimal printing purposes and are configured for ultimate compatibility with your favorite image editing software. Your creations from our product lines are free to use in your personal or commercial projects and are great for any tabletop RPG (physical or virtual) creations.
Top Down Settlements is the art package that will be used in the creation of many of the maps for Nord Games' Spectacular Settlements book as well as the upcoming second season of the YouTube show RollOut!
Create Stunning maps of towns, cities, and all forms of classic fantasy settlements, as well as their environments - expertly with no need for artistic skills of your own. In this massive art package are all of the images needed to make everything from docks to farmlands, castles to fishing villages and everything in between as well as a plethora of pre-designed elements for easy and fast settlement construction. Buildings come in many different styles and shapes and also their constructed materials and roof types (wooden shingled,stone walls, thatched roof and so forth) . Buildings are not only in their completed state but also are presented in basic components so that if you wish you can construct whatever creation you desire.
The environmental aspects of the package are truly vast and versatile with cliffs and chasms, rivers, waterfalls and all manor of waterways to forests and grasslands, cobblestone and more!
With a multitude of pre-created map essentials and decorations add an extra touch of flare and excellence to your creations. These range from classic compass roses and map keys to corner decorations and ornamental borders as well as textured overlays to ensure your maps authentic look.
With all of these aspects of settlement map creation and hundreds of hand drawn images we feel that this product can truly benefit the wonderful role playing game community and to fully realize some of the beautiful locations, that we feel confident that you all will create, so we have also put into production an art package to create all of these building interiors in a battle map scale.
This collection of assets not only create the basic building's construction but also allows you to populate it with all of the typical decor and furnishings one might expect. A massive amount of furniture as well as other household items and decorations really push the boundaries of what can be created. This image asset package is hundreds of hand drawn items completely at the purchaser's disposal.
All elements of construction (walls, floors, etc.) come in a variety of materials such as wood, stone, plaster and more. All of the necessary elements such as stairs, doors, porches, railings, etc. are all seamlessly integrated into the buildings image creation for a natural and immersive setting.
Through the use of roofs and the classic shape design of the building one can easily portray much more interesting and believable constructions and layered maps to give a real feeling of levels.
We have created a bonus updated regional map creation suite for backers of the Baron Level and higher. This basic Regional Art Package contains over 100 images for the construction of detailed and authentic regional and overland maps.
At Baron level or higher you will also get your hands on our starter Coat of Arms Package of more than fifty images to make custom fantasy style family and governmental emblems. This will be expanded upon in later product releases.
A series of easy to follow yet effective videos detailing how to use the Fantasy Civilization Series as well as our future products to their fullest potential.
-$2,000 For reaching our goal we will include all assets in night time versions. This would also included soft moon shadows in the top down settlement map packages as well as lighting effects on many of the building Interior Images.
-$4,000 Winter! For doubling our goal we will add snow covered roofs, grounds, banks, frozen waterways, etc.
-$6,000 We will broaden the underground aspects of the packages and create a series of assets for both natural and carved passages, tunnels, and the like.
-$10,000 At this level we will begin to introduce scaling into the top down asset packages with larger more detailed assets from a closer perspective for Top Down Settlements and smaller and more distant ones for Top Down Interiors. This will create a seamless transition between the two packages.
-$15,000 Ruined aspects will be included! Turn places into destruction zones with fire and smoke as well as broken buildings or long forgotten boroughs ancient and decayed.
If we were to reach these goals we would love to take surveys to see what those that pledge would like to see for more stretch goals and also for future products from English Rose LLC.
