I’ve found myself answering the same questions over and over on our Discord or in the Direct messages lately. There seems to be an increasing number of people that are somewhat confused about how and where to get our content, or what’s the easiest way, what do they get for supporting us on Patreon etc.
This post is going to serve as a “Master Post” that’s containing all the information you need and also answering all the questions you might have. If your question is not covered here, please feel free to ask in the comments below this post on patreon so we can answer and everyone else can get the answers easily as well 🙂

Please read the full Commercial License info first!
Access to all previously released content’ means as soon as you sign up as a patron you gain access to our entire back-catalogue for your tier.
You are only charged for the new releases while you are a patron.
If you join the Scholar (3$) tier for example, you would be charged one time at the beginning of the next month, 3$ for each pack we released the previous month.
We make 3-5 releases a month, but you can cap the number of releases you support during sign up (ex. you could cap at 2 releases, and would be charged 6$.)
Capping the number of releases you support does not effect your access to content. Someone who caps at 1 and pays 3$/month gets the same content as someone who doesn’t cap and pays ~12$. Access to the back-catalogue is likewise not effected by capping.
All our content is registered under the Creative Commons License Attribution-NonCommercial CC BY-NC-SA.
This means anyone can use it, share it or modify it. It cannot be used commercially. Finally, credit must be given to FA as the author, and a link to our web page (https://www.forgotten-adventures.net) must be included if it is shared or redistributed.
All content must be part of a greater product/publication/adventure module/one shot etc. if you wanna share it, You can’t just repack and share the assets/tokens/maps!
How to properly Credit:
If you are sharing content made with FA assets, You are required to credit us (Forgotten Adventures) and link to our Website ( https://www.forgotten-adventures.net/ ) in your publication.
Proper credit should look something like this:
“This Map was created using the Assets from Forgotten Adventures“
“Assets used to create this map are from Forgotten Adventures“
- Credit doesn’t have to be directly on the map itself. If it’s a single map shared on reddit or somewhere else – Credit in comments or in the description will suffice.
- For Streaming/Video Content – either in text form on the screen or mentioned during the video + link to the website in the description.
- For Adventures and such – in “credits” section and/or under/next to the map
Fan-Content Policy – When you don’t need the Commercial License:
If you make content with FA assets that you are sharing for FREE – You can accept Donations without the need of the Commercial License!
Including Patreon or Pay What You Want model on DriveThruRPG for example.
Only caveat is that the maps have to be free and accessible to the public, nothing behind a paywall, no exceptions (variants/gridless etc. behind a paywall for example) – Also proper credit is required in all instances.
This also includes Streaming and Prerecorded Video ( Twitch, YouTube etc.) as long as the videos themselves are not behind a paywall. Credit is still required – either with text on the screen or mentioned during the video + link to the website in the description.
Commercial License is tied to our Merchant (20$) tier as of now, please Check out Commercial License Information here.
If someone asks you to make them a map for personal use as a commission using our assets, that means you are technically selling it and you would need a commercial license, however there is basically no way for us to police that sort of thing, so it’s up to you and your conscience 🙂
If they would like to commission you for a map that’s gonna be used in a commercial product however – the license is not transferable, so they would need a license on their own as well.
