As part of the ongoing Aurica project, I make art pieces for a Pathfinder tabletop roll-playing game. For anyone not familiar with what that is, it’s very similar to Dungeons and Dragons. Players create fictitious characters to go on adventures orchestrated by a game master.

Aurica is a Kingdom comprised mostly of islands, but with some of the kingdom on the continent. The […]
