Fitzhywel's Fantastical Paraphernalia: Papers and Parchments

50 different types for your player handouts.

From parchment and scrolls to unusual materials like ghost paper and dragon hide!

50 Papers layed out

I decided to make this product to help out DMs with the chore of hunting down or creating player handouts, notes, threats, arcane texts and prophecies that add a richness to a gaming session.

This collection of 50 templates, are ready to be written on and given to players. 36 of them are common place writing materials in various states, from pristine, to blood splattered, to burnt and torn. The remainder are unusual materials that I hope will inspire interesting and creative ideas.

The download is sizable (230mb) due to the high resolution and clarity of the images. They fill the available space on a A4/US letter hybrid, so they can be printed on either.

At only $5 US, I hope that you may consider adding these to your games, and may they always be fantastical

I would like to know if this can be used in commercial products, like adventures and/or maps built to be sold.

Thank you,

Hi, Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get a notification that there was a comment and only noticed now quite by accident. This version as it stands is for private use only. I am looking into making some of my products (this one included) available for use in commercial products sometime in the near future. :)

I'd suggest doing so because it's not going to cost you any sales. Nobody is going to think "oh, I was going to buy this to make handouts, but now I won't buy it because IndieGameCo used it as a background for a map". Two different purposes, two different markets, not competing. So you'll get more money for doing no additional work, which is in my opinion a good reason for a publisher to sell something.

Definitely, my only real delay at this point is I don't know much about price points and licensing legals. But I am looking into it :)

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
