Free content has arrived! As we’re sure you’re aware from the plethora of recent releases, we’ve been working as fast as possible to shore up the new import/export capabilities. Users have found inventive ways of leveraging import/export that we simply did not anticipate, and naturally there have been a few bugs to exterminate as well. The wait is over and we’re excited to provide you with three free downloads to explore in Realm Works!

Each of these items is provided as a file that you can download and import into any of your realms, using the standard process outlined in our “Importing Your Content” article. Pixies on Parade has been added for all our D&D 5th Edition fans. Streets of Zobeck will be along soon, it requires an extra security step we are skipping right now to get the free content to you as soon as possible! 

We are now stepping into Phase Three of our previously outlined plan and will be hard at work over the next few weeks making sure our security measures are in place so we can begin delivering  secured content to Kickstarter backers. From there we will enter the final phase of bringing the Content Market online! You can read more about our plans, and grab your free content, here!

Don’t forget, if you’re curious how import/export works, or want to learn about other features, we recommend you check out our new article series titled Designer’s Diary. These helpful articles will be an ongoing series that aid you in making the most of your Realm works content. Article four Game-Specific Content Structures is available now!

Our friends at Mesa Mundi Inc.-the makers of D20 Pro-are hard at work on a brand new project called the World Engine! World Engine lets you seamlessly combine freehand drawing and tile-based painting tools. The application runs in your browser on virtually any device, and because World Engine is designed from scratch for touch, all its capabilities are being optimized with touch and stylus in mind.

Creating great looking maps for your campaign has never been this simple or fun. Build your maps, export them for print or use inside your favorite virtual tabletop and get playing your game! Check it out!
