Rules and Such (Group FAQ)


• This group is for artists and illustrators who do work specifically for TABLETOP roleplaying games, such as Dungeons & Dragons. Anyone may join, but we ask that you only do so if you plan on contributing qualifying work, otherwise you should simply click "+Watch" above.

Submitting Art
• All art submitted by members will be reviewed for qualification as TABLETOP/PEN & PAPER RPG art. All art MUST be labeled as relating to a tabletop RPG or otherwise be obviously related to a tabletop RPG. Art this is not labeled will be questioned before being allowed in the group. If you do not respond to the question, the art will not appear in the group. Art that is obviously not RPG-related will be rejected.

Acceptable Sources
-Any traditional tabletop, pen-and-paper roleplaying game primarily played using books and dice, such as D&D, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, Vampire the Masquerade, Das Schwarze Auge, or Mutants & Masterminds, even if it is based on entertainment media, such as the Star Wars RPGs or the Song of Fire And Ice RPG.

-Traditional tabletop games, as above, played on a virtual tabletop.

-Any tabletop RPG product, including books, cards, or packaging.

-Live-Action RolePlay (LARP) characters, as long as they are illustrated and not photographs of cosplay.

Unacceptable Sources
-Any video game or other game played primarily on a gaming console, mobile device, or computer, even if it is, itself, an RPG, such as World of Warcraft or Skyrim, or related to a tabletop RPG, such as Neverwinter Nights or Pathfinder Online.

-Collectible card games (CCGs), such as Magic the Gathering or Pokémon.

-Any entertainment media such as TV or movies, even if related to a tabletop RPG.

-Any published fiction media such as novels or comic books, even if related to a tabletop RPG, such as D&D novels or the Pathfinder comic books.

•This group is for RPG illustration only. We do not accept maps (save for those of illustrational quality), diagrams, graphic design, three-dimensional art (sculptures, painted miniatures, etc.), photography, or written work (unless accompanied by an illustration).

• Please post your art to the appropriate gallery, as follows:

-Featured: this gallery is for admin use only and houses our favorite pieces from the other galleries. You cannot post to this gallery.

-Personal RPG Art: for art created for personal use of for private commission, regardless of genre.

-Published RPG Art: for art created for commercial use or publication in an RPG book or product. Each folder covers a specific speculative genre. Note that despite the name, the work in question doesn't actually have to have been published in order to qualify for these folders, only that it has to have been specifically commissioned by an RPG publisher for the express purpose of publication in an RPG product.

-Mature RPG Art: this folder holds any art that is deemed "mature" or "NSFW," including those depicting nudity or graphic violence (gore). You must be 18 years old to view this gallery.

-Favorites Collection: favorites are pieces that, for whatever reason, did not get artist permission to be posted in the main galleries. You should not post any work into these galleries.

• Group administrators retain the right to move your submission after posting if we do not believe it was correctly placed. Placement of art will NOT affect the acceptance or denial of your submission.

• Submissions to any gallery are limited to 5/month.

•Although we will accept tasteful nudity, erotic art is not permitted. The management reserves the right to determine what is "erotic" and what is not. Art deemed "NSFW" must be placed in the "Mature RPG Art" gallery. We will NOT accept any art depicting domestic violence or abuse, torture, rape, or anything overtly demeaning or insulting to any race, gender, or real-life group.

• We reserve the right to delete any art, refuse any submission, or remove any member at our discretion.

It becomes necessary from time to time to post a reminder of what this group is about and what we deem acceptable for inclusion in our galleries.  The focus of this group is extremely narrow: we accept art from and about tabletop roleplaying games, and tabletop roleplaying games ONLY.  We DO NOT accept art from any other source.  That means video games, card games, board games, novels, or comic books, even if they're related to a tabletop RPG.  That's the basics of it.  For more details, here's a handy guide...

Art we accept:
-RPG character portraits (PC or NPC)
-Illustrations from your RPG sessions.
-Professional illustration specifically commissioned by an RPG publisher to appear in an RPG book or related product.

In the context of this group, "RPG" is defined as "any game played in person (or online using a virtual tabletop), on a table, with dice, paper, books, and sometimes miniatures, where players take on the roles of player characters and a Dungeon-or Game-master tells an interactive story that involves those characters."  Samples include Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Mutants & Masterminds, and The World of Darkness.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT ART FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE, even if related to a tabletop RPG (including RPG novels, comics, and, especially, video games), nor do we accept art that is not illustrational in nature (so no maps or logos or photos of painted miniatures).

Note that RPGs based on non-RPG media is acceptable as long as the art in question is specifically related to the RPG and not the original source material.  For instance, art created for the STAR WARS RPG is acceptable while fan art of characters from the STAR WARS movies is not.

Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting RPGIlloShow.

Hello Talon,

My husband, some friends and I have published an rpg called A'Kyria. I set up the Deviant Art page to promote our game and its art. I am wondering if my illustrations would qualify for your group even though it is not a mainstream rpg. All of the art (except sketches) have been published (or will be published) in the rule book or in our accompanying software adventures (pods).

As long as the art is a) related to a tabletop, traditional pen-and-paper RPG, and not a video game or any other kind of media, it's eligible for this group.  The popularity of the game is not a consideration.  If the art was published (or created specifically for the intent to be published), then it goes in the published folder according to its genre.  If it was created for fun or on private commission, it goes in the Personal gallery.

Can you recommend a map-maker app that's free and safe to download?
I'm trying to create the setting for my story, and as you can see…
I need help.

Unfortunately, no.  I'm a MAC guy and there's not a lot of development along those line for the MAC OS.
