I have a question about what's legal to post on PFSPrep, based on Paizo's community usage policies.
I sometimes copy and paste maps from scenarios into jpg files, and edit them to make them the right size and printer friendly. That way, I can print them on plain 8.5x11 paper to use them with 1 inch squares at the gaming table.
Am I allowed to share those? Or does the fact that I'm copying Paizo's "pictures" prevent that?
As a historical note, cleaning up posts of the extracted map images in the google drive share which was the original form of PFS Prep was part of why we moved to the forum configuration.
No, that is expressly forbidden by the terms of the CUP and OGL combination which lets PFSPrep share what it does.
Full-up recreation of the maps using you own carto and cleared art assets is AWESOME, a TON of work, and welcome, though. I've seen a couple of sharable VTT maps (Feast of Sigils leaps to mind as one of the best) which were created using the carto in the scenario as inspiration... or the full-texture Bonekeep maps my wife made are around somewhere or other public, too.
The maps in the scenarios are extractable by you, for you, but cannot be shared. Link to the last official comment on this here
