  •  

 

Explorer – $10 per Creation 

Per Creation Model Explained:

You are not charged anything immediately after sign-up! You only pay for New Content.

While you are an Active Patron, you’ll receive a pending bill for each New Paid Release/Post on Patreon. Pending bills are paid at the end of each month/beginning of next or when you cancel your pledge.

We have 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.

Copyright:

All content produced by Forgotten Adventures is property of Forgotten Adventures and is Copyright 2021 Forgotten Adventures. All Rights Reserved.


Fan-Content Policy – When you don’t need the Commercial License:

If you make derivative artwork with FA assets, or wish to include free FA tokens alongside maps or written adventures that you are sharing for FREE – You can accept Donations without the need of the Commercial License as long as you adhere to the following rules:

    1. The product must only include derivative artwork; it may not include or redistribute unmodified assets.
    2. The product may include free tokens only if they are packaged with maps or written adventures.
    3. Shared products have to be free and accessible to the public, nothing behind a paywall, no exceptions (variants/gridless etc. behind a paywall for example)
    4. Credit must be given to Forgotten Adventures as the author of all Forgotten Adventures assets and tokens included in the product and a link to our web page (https://www.forgotten-adventures.net/) must be included with the shared product.

Definitions:

“Assets” are defined as the individual image files included in the “Complete Mapmaking Pack.”
“Free tokens” are defined as the free variant of any Forgotten Adventure tokens.
“Product” is defined as a piece of content that you have made and are sharing.

“Donations” does include Patreon or Pay What You Want model on DriveThruRPG for example.

Token Use
Any unedited tokens that are to be included must be the free variants only, and must be part of a larger product. That means if you are writing an adventure or making a map/adventure module you can use the free color variants of tokens – just within reason – e.g. Don’t package 20 tokens with a single map, and don’t package the entire SRD in a single adventure. If you are not sure about a particular use case, please contact us.

Software Integration
Fan Content Policy and Commercial Use do not cover integration of our assets or tokens into software products. If you are developing a software and you would like to include our assets or tokens in your software product you must contact us at  [email protected] to see if it is possible to arrange for a specific custom license. 

Streaming and Prerecorded Video
The Fan-Content Policy also includes Streaming and Prerecorded Video ( Twitch, YouTube etc.) as long as the videos themselves are not behind a paywall. You may use any color variants for tokens visible in streaming and video. Credit is still required – a link to the website must be included in the description of the stream or video, and you must either include text on the screen or verbally mention credit during the video.

 

How to properly Credit: 

If you are sharing content under the Fan-Content Policy, 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
“Tokens used in this stream 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 – a link to the website must be included in the description of the stream or video, and you must either include text on the screen or verbally mention credit during the video.
    • For Adventures and such – in “credits” section and/or under/next to the map

Commercial Use:

We are currently not accepting new commercial use requests, as we are in a process of updating our licenses.

We don’t have a specific time frame unfortunately, as there are some variables we can’t control (Lawyers for example).

We will make an announcement once we have more info to share. Keep an eye out on our Discord or Patreon. 

Thank you for understanding.
