For those interested, I'm a GM that recently got my group into the Dragon Age system (and we're really digging it so far!), and I'm a graphic artist. I draw out a lot of my own stuff, and have created pages upon pages worth of creatures and player characters (most of which have complete front and back sides drawn) that are designed to be printed out on my home B/W laser printed, colored using colored pencils, cut out, folded and placed into those little plastic card stands as seen here: http://www.boardgamedesign.com/pages/go_shopping/stands.htm
They are all drawn using a digital tablet and exported to Adobe Illustrator in a vector format (so I can scale them to any size without any loss in quality), and have them set on pages complete with dashed lines to show where to cut.Currently Drawn Dragon Age Sets:
- Thugs (intended to be lesser armed combatants like villagers or street toughs)
- Mercenaries or Bandits
- Blight Wolves
- Revengers (from the Dalish Curse adventure in GM Set 1)
- Giant Spiders
- Skeleton Warriors
- Genlocks (based on Dragon Age: Origins concept art found in GM Set 1)
- Hurlocks (based on concept art and design from Dragon Age 2 video game)
- Emissarys (based on a concept art from Dragon Age 2 video game also)
- Rage Demons
- Desire Demon (less
skanky so my wife doesn't freak out...)
- A Shade or Fade Spirit
Previously my group was playing in the Wheel of Time setting, (which is where the wolves, bears, thugs, and mercs came from), but I have sets of trollocs, white cloaks, darkfriends, and Myrddraal as a result as well. I made the decision to try something a bit more open and less restrictive than the Wheel of Time setting and the D&D 3.5 rule set.
I've been planning on setting up a website soon and as a part of that site, having these designs and sets made publicly available for GMs to download and print in PDF format. I was wondering if anyone here thought that was something they could use for their games? I figure free is always something people are after, and these are based and drawn to match the style of the Dragon Age world instead of substitutes from D&D or other worlds.
I'm far from done and I'm still planning on creating more enemies like Ogres, Sloth Demons, Pride Demons, Templars, and Qunari as time goes on. I figured what I had was a good start for people though; including the heroes I've currently created for my players, past and present.
