Will the Foundry VTT module for Gatewalkers have token images for the monsters in Book 1 that currently don't have images in the Bestiaries?

Looking at some of the previous packages I've purchased, every monster in the book gets art (token / portrait). Pretty sure it doesn't update the compendium entry (my recollection is that the Foundry Premium packages from Sigil just import all the actors to the actors tab and uses the actor entry rather than the compendium entry).

Interesting because there are monsters that appear in the AP that don't have images in it nor in the Bestiary where they appear, so I'm curious to see what they do in this case.

Some creatures that don’t have art in the Bestiaries because they are part of a multi-creature entry have art from the pawn sets or battle cards.

Example from The Seventh Arch:

Melixie

Presumably they will get used for tokens, though I don’t use a VTT myself, so I am just guessing.

I have the Foundry module and can confirm ALL the Monsters/NPCs have art but the treasure piles use the Moon Knight symbol so I've manually changed them.

The treasure actors being a generic icon is due to a bug in the Forge that will hopefully be fixed soon (is already fixed?). The module does in fact use a custom icon for them.

Images are mapped to the compendium when we receive the art for that specific compendium entry. If we receive variant art for something like a named NPC, then we wouldn't update the underlying compendium entry with the variant art. We only link generic art to the compendiums.

So if you look at something like Dream spider or Scalescribe, that has been mapped to the compendium for those bestiaries because it is the generic art. Whereas Captain Salah is a centaur, but not the generic centaur art so her art is only mapped to the Captain Salah compendium entry, and not the bestiary 1 compendium entry.

And just to reassure anyone confused, yes, we still include proper art for all monsters/npcs on the individual actors. My comment above is specifically about the compendium entries.
