Sharing Your Community Creations - Read Me First!

If you’ve got an amazing community creation you want to share with the world, we’d love to see it! This section of the forums is for fan-made media content (i.e. YouTube, Twitch, fan art, pictures of IRL creations, etc.).

When you share your content in this section, you are confirming the following things:
  • You are the original creator of the content provided (or have permission from the original creator - you should note who the original creator is in your post).
  • You give Intrepid Studios permission to share your content on other platforms (such as Facebook or Twitter for Fan Art Fridays).
We recommend also including at least a brief description of your creation when you post it. We like to credit your work when we share it, so if you want us to give you a shoutout, please include your name and/or social media handles in your post!

The Role-Playing Tavern will be moderated just like any other section of the forums, so please be mindful of the Forum Rules & Code of Conduct when you post.
