Wow that is a big deal ! Devins tokens are amazing in both quality and in their number which must be north of several hundred with lots of variety esp monsters.
From the RPTools forums (http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6725):
Hello fellow gamers.
I'm releasing all my tokens for free.
I appreciate every person who has purchased tokens in the past, you have made the FUM site possible.
Today I will change the store to reflect this, all token packs will be free.
By making the tokens free I will free myself from needing to make large tokens sets. I've always tried to make the sets as large as possible to give people the largest bang for their buck.
Now I can release One or two or 10 token packs. I can make a larger variety of tokens on unrelated themes.
Future releases will include both hi and lo-res versions of the token. I am also going to go back and center all tokens in a square image, having realized that some programs work better with a token that is centered. I might also make a set that has a round base under the tokens to give them a "mini" feel and look.
I will still be taking custom orders for tokens or map objects for $4 per token/object.
The same copyright limitations still apply, you may now distribute the tokens freely but may not use them commercially in any way without my written permission.
You may mod them as much as you want and freely distribute any modified files.
From this point on I will have donation links, one for FUM and one for myself. There will be no set amount for donations.
More information and links to donate will be added to my token site....
In related news....
FUM is gearing up for iCon 09.
We are planning for a weekend in April to be this years greatest weekend for VT's .
Head to http://www.fouruglymonsters.com/ for more information.
This is very generous and great news.
The storefront requires registration and has some bugs. DK said that he would place the tokens in the FUM download area soon.
For those that don't want to wait - If you go ahead and "purchase" them, you'll get an error at the end when you submit, but it does go through. You'll get an email with a link back to the purchase where you can download everything.
This may be a dumb question, do you need to register at the FUM site to download these tokens? When I click on the zip download icon for any set, I get sent back to the home page. The tokens sound really useful.
Yes, you do need to register and log in. I had the same problem, since it's not mentioned anywhere that I saw that that was the case.

Thanks. I don't like proliferating my memberships, but it looks like it might be worth it in this case.
Thanks everybody for the good words.
At 1st it wasn't neccessary to log in to get them, but a few changes that we are making in preparation for FUMcon made it a requirement. Sorry for the hassle it was not intentional.
No major hassle, Devin, and in any case it was well worth it, those character tokens are great.
That release has gotta be worth some serious rep, but if I'm reading the rules right, mine counts for squat.
I'll check out your site when I get some time. You don't have top-downs of modern/future city buildings, by any chance?
