Font & Graphic resources

I've been debating making this post, but decided to go ahead in the hopes that this will help others.

As someone trying to write and release an RPG adventure to the pubic. I came to a point where I needed more graphic resources, (Pictures, new fonts, backgrounds etc). I have been using a few sites to feed this uge, and decided to share them.

A few tips:

1) check around on different sites, sometimes you can find a better price on a similar (or larger) collection by shopping around.
2) wait on some deals, many sites will offer a special just before a promotion ends.

Fonts:

Fontbase:
This program is amazing, and has one of the most intuitive ui's I've come across. On top of that, there is a free version! Install your fonts into this program, and they you will have the ability to turn individual fonts on or off, saving valuable system resources for those who have a large font library. The ability to create groups (or collections) of your favorite fonts also helps. NOTE: if you should obtain this program, I ask one small favor: Please reach out to the developer via email, and ask them to consider creating a program that has the same features for brushes that you would use in programs such as Photoshop and/or Gimp. :)

I hope this list helps, and bundles may be able to be purchased and gifted for that web or graphics designer on your list... :)

Great thread @Lensman!

DriveThruRPG has a couple of fonts too.

It also has a lot of genre-specific stock art.

This thread is also useful for GMs wanting to make props for their games.

Campaign Logger vNext has a shiny new PDF export feature that gives you great-looking PDFs with parchment background.

Patreon is another great resource for art and sound resources.

One thing I'm debating:
Would anyone like to have the resources updated to include side such as battlemaps, map icons, and similar resources? I have a few that I can add in, but not sure if there would be a desire for that sort of information. Please let me know!

I think battle maps, etc. would be useful resources indeed. But as there is a huge number of those types of resources available, it would be good to start with those offering free samples, good deals, or otherwise noteworthy creations.

hmm - with Campaign Logger vNext could a feature be added to allow us to upload the background used? thanks to some of the sites listed above, I have a great collection of parchment backgrounds, (Some of my favorite being the ones with tea or coffee stains)..

just a thought. :)
