A lot of the tileset images were drawn by David E. Gervais as part of the TOME and Dungeon Odissey projects. What a great work of art they are, and so vast amounts of tiles, many thanks David!

Big thanks to Hyptosis, because I used some tiles from his vast amount of artwork (as published in bulk on OGA by Zabin), and the quality is just astonishing!

MANY thanks to all the fans who have contributed ideas, bug reports, and even graphics!
Particular thanks go to Nick Lalonde, Fitzgerald, Henrik Forsman, Jonathan Nemo and Jeff Clark for making pixelart graphics for me to use in DoC, it would not all look so pretty in the castle if they hadn’t chipped in and made some nice tiles where I did not have any suitable ones. Cheers!

And a special THANK YOU to my present and continuing Patreon supporters, who want me to make many more games/expansions! Particular high contributions: William Robert Lee, Nick Lalonde, Justin F, Christian Weightman, Evan Campbell and Eric Arnold. I hope I bring you ever more joy with my games!
