    Hi there,

    I read the copyright part of the ProFantasy site and searched the forum but I am still not certain if what I want is allowed.

    Recently I backed a kickstarter project called Other World Mapper.
    I used that to create a map of an Island kingdom.

    Now I want to make a second map with the regions (duchies) of the kingdom.
    Each duchy has its own coat of arms.

    I used an annual (CA13) to design the heraldry shields.
    Am I allowed to use these designs in my map that is created with Other World Mapper?

    Outside my own PC the map and the heraldry shields will only be used as PNG files.
    Can I use these PNG files (map with heraldry shields) to post on forums and/or Facebook?

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    For copyright questions, you should contact ProFantasy directly to receive an official answer.

    My personal interpretation of the EULA is that all this should be fine, since you are allowed to use and distribute anything you make with PF products (as long as you don't redistribute the source images themselves, only your composite result). But do remember that my answers aren't official.

    This is the answer I receiver from Profantasy.


    Hello Henrie,

    Thanks for checking with us! Yes, you can use the designs you created as you describe. Just don't distribute the shields separately (for example as a symbol catalog for OWM for other users).

    Best regards,
    Ralf Schemmann
