Looks Like I Bought A Book With Stolen Art

I don't know for sure yet, but according to THIS thread on RPG.net, it looks like the PDF of the unofficial 6th Edition Tunnels and Trolls rulebook that I purchased from DriveThruRPG used a piece of art without the authorization of the artist.

Not only that, it looks like James Shipman and Outlaw Press have done this multiple times with other products. If this is true, this sucks and I am sorry that I supported them with my purchase. Uggh...

UPDATE: It looks like the offending books (including the one that I purchased) have been removed. I will take that as validation of the accusations...

yeah - this is a real F'in drag! I can't believe he decided to run his business this way. It just keeps getting worse and worse. Outlaw press should not have taken the 'outlaw' side of things so seriously...

It's a terrible mess. The whole issue is making me sad.

But! You at least got a good game! I think 5th or 7th ed are better, but why argue about nits?

Have fun with an excellent game!
