When working on master plans for both good guys and bad guys, or even talking about courses of action for a team to pursue, make sure that you can answer six questions that show you're working towards success. Better start by defining success, then . . .

Got an evil plan? Need one? (For an RPG or fiction, of course!) To prevent moments where your players and audience pound their foreheads in frustration, make sure that you can answer these six questions about the erstwhile master plan.

Looking for a bit of artistic help.
 
I'm looking for links and pointers to any of the following things for the Heretical DnD project

- Verified public domain artwork with fantasy themes in both black and white and color .
- Images that you own personally but are willing to donate that fit the above
- Images that you own personally and are willing to defer payment on until a crowdfunding event at a later date

In the second two cases, I'd be looking for a non-exclusive use licence. Go ahead and sell it to someone else if you can or want. If I actively commission a work (which again would be post-funding), exclusivity would be negotiable on a case-by-case basis.

Anyway, my general philosophy is that you can't eat exposure, but you can certainly die of it. So I want to pay my artists. In fact, I insist on it. But reality, for the moment, suggests I rely on public domain and donated art as placeholders, eventually to be replaced as I can afford based on crowdfunding.

And the sooner I can start working with actual images, the better.

Thanks for any help!

I've updated the GURPS 101 page with a few new entries. If you participate in GURPSDay (or if you don't, but you should) and you have posts that talk about the very basics of how to play GURPS - stuff that's enhancing the basic set, usually- that doesn't assume more than basic familiarity with 3d6/roll low, effect rolls, and maybe reaction rolls, drop me a line with a link and I'll add you.

The first one is basically the premise underlying the excellent Garrett P.I. books by Glen Cook.
