Inkwell Ideas

is creating Art/Icon Packs to support role-playing, worldbuilding & wargames

per Art/Icon packs.
We're looking for your support to make new map icons as well as maintain and add new features to our Worldographer (aka Hexographer 2) software.  Because Worldographer is created from the ground up to make maps for games, its user interface is simpler than most similar programs.  Worldographer makes world & kingdom maps in several classic styles; settlement maps to create cities, towns, and villages; and battlemat maps for tactical combat in buildings, dungeons, and outdoor areas.  By supporting us, you get extra art/icon packs to use with our software!  (These will be in standard image formats, so you'll be able to use them with other software if you wish.)

Each month we'll release at least one new art/icon pack with 60+ images each, split about equally between:
  • World Isometric Style: World map city icons, monuments, terrain, etc., in an isometric style (something like the Civilization computer game graphics).
  • Settlements (cities/towns/villages): Medieval buildings, Elven buildings, modern buildings, old west buildings, etc.
  • Battlemats (dungeons/building interiors/tactical outdoor maps):  Modern chairs/sofas, wooden tables, alchemy devices & symbols, doors, beds, etc.
  • World Classic Style: World map city icons, monuments, terrain, etc., in a classic/flat styles.
All of the art & icons may be used in your own maps (even for publication, although you must credit the icons) but may not be sold/redistributed as stand alone graphics or as part of "stock art" style collections.

How does Patreon work?

Patreon is a way to directly support creative projects on an ongoing basis. Creators make things on an ongoing basis, and your pledge is taken each month based on how many creations the project made that month. You are also free to cap your monthly pledge so a project doesn't suddenly make 100 items. (Our monthly icon/art collections will count as one item. If we do make two collections in a given month, you would be charged twice, but this will not be common and you will be getting two sets of 60+ icons.)

Its been a dream to make tools that help others create worlds and games.  Thank you for supporting these projects!
