Congruent with our company vision Town and Cityscapes (the first in the Fantasy Civilization Series) is a cohesive system-independent image package designed from the ground up to place creative power in the hands of the user. Create maps, illustrations, handouts, etc. of any classic fantasy settlement in your favorite image editing software affordably and without the need for any artistic skills. With a unified color pallet, perspective fluidity and design structure you are insured seamless image integration giving ultimate freedom in art production for any tabletop RPG (physical or virtual).
We have solved the issue of the singular perspective barrier without over complicating the art package or over encumbering it with an unnecessary amount of duplicate images with slight changes.
With already over 400 hand drawn images created for the project we are well on our way to producing the most comprehensive package to date. Each file and file grouping has been separated and labeled for quick and easy reference by not only subject matter but also perspective, visual plane (background, middleground, foreground), lighting direction, etc.
Each item is not only presented in its entirety but also its individual components. You can quickly grab a pre-designed element , such as the castle above, or take some time and use the many parts and castle elements to bring your own structure to life.
Knowing that the requirements from Town & Cityscapes varies from project to project and person to person we made 3 distinct tiers of the art package available.
-Fundamental Art Package : Over 100 images
The Fundamental Art Package offers a wide variety of prefabricated structures and environmental images (castles, backdrops, tree and plant groupings, etc.) that fit seamlessly together to create countless locations.
-Advanced Art Package : Over 200 images
In the Advanced Art Package not only do you get all the prefabricated elements but many of its components as well. More perspectives and distance enhancements are opened up to create a much more precise and immersive image.
-Complete Art Package : Over 400 images
This product truly shines with the Complete Art Package. With all of the images at your disposal you are truly limited only by your imagination. All perspectives, all planes of view, and all the many other features form a cohesive tool for art creation.
Having done the majority of the work already you are insured a well thought out and executed product that is fun to use while creating your own works of art. Once the product is unlocked all backer's products will be redeemable at our friends at Nord Games online store.

A series of easy to follow yet effective videos detailing how to use this (Towns & Cityscapes) and all of our future products to their potential.
The Fantasy Civilization Series will continue in many directions after Towns & Cityscapes comes to its completion. We have plans for variations and expansions such as racial and cultural, climates and biomes, and so on. We also will be creating a battle map series and have plans for a character image creation set.
