Hello all, I've been a member for well over a year now and I usually quietly sneak around the site gathering maps to use in my campaigns. During one of my google image searches I found this picture of a torn up bag and I remember seeing some of you saying that they got their inspiration from unconventional methods. I saw potential with the design as an island map but unfortunately I am not good at using the programs and being creative when it comes to art (now ask me for a good plot for a DnD campaign and I'll come up with something). Just passing the image along. Have a good one

Apologies!! I never thought that a piece of torn sack would be a copyrighted image. I'll pay more attention to the links I click on a probably just refer back to the site anyways just to be sure it doesn't happen again. Like I said, I'm a noobie, so I rarely post pictures anywhere so it's new to me.

Oh, and not quite sure why, but I can't reply to Rob's post for this. The site keeps sending me to a "you're not authorized to do that" link.

It might not be copyrightable. Are you sufficiently specialized in copyright law to make that call? I am not. :)

That said, if nothing else, the (C) means the creator doesn't want it used other ways and it probably doesn't hurt to respect those wishes.
