Spears of the Dawn Free Art Pack

I don't know how many of you are aware of the new game Spears of the Dawn by Sine Nomine Publishing. I certainly was not until it was mentioned at Tenkar's Tavern. It is a new fantasy RPG with an African theme. Now, I'm not really looking for a new rule set, but I do like the idea of the setting. The standard western European settings do tend to get a little dull. What is even more amazing is that due to the success of the Kickstarter campaign that funded this project, all of the art has been released into the Public Domain. Yes, that amazing illustration above is free to use. The download includes 61 illustrations from seven different artists (Note: you do need to be a registered user to view this item). They are all of the highest quality. Just looking at these images makes me want to look further into this system, if nothing else to get ideas. I do enjoy exploring alternate mythologies. It would be easy enough take this campaign setting and use it with the T&T system. Either way, the art is certainly worth a look. I'll be be featuring some more of these illustrations in later blog posts.
