Stolen Dynamite

One of the unfortunate side effects of giving resources away is discovering your work is being sold for profit.  Such is the case with this "Dynamite Prop" from Shadowcast Studios.  You could save a chunk of change by just printing out my Blast-O brand prop dynamite label and wrapping it around a dowel- just like Shadowcast Studios did.

Sadly, they're violating the Creative Commons Non-Commercial License I use for everything here at Propnomicon.  I want folks to use my stuff.  Just don't monetize it without asking permission. 

UPDATE:  Shadowcast has pulled the offending listing after a torrent of negative comments.  You guys are great.

Cthulhu Icon

This primitive Cthulhu icon comes to us from CaaPora Creature Shop.  The iridescent black and purple finish is pretty cool.

Update:  Sadly, CaaPora's artifact description appears to be a direct lift from Jason McKittrick's "Mayan Cthulhu Artifact".  Definitely not cool
