Centaur, Minotaur, Pegasus, Satyr, Gryphon...



If you want to go with Gryphon, here's a nice piece of open-source artwork: http://units.wesnoth.org/trunk/pics/core$images$portraits$mo...

Wow, are you sure this is open-source? We are going over names and this one seems the fastest to replace unicorn with.

Yeah, it's from Battle for Wesnoth (www.wesnoth.org), all of their core artwork is GPL2 licensed. If I remember right, there is some talk in their forums encouraging other open source games to use their artwork. If you are interested you ought to look around their community for the right person to ask permission.

EDIT: Found a related forum discussion: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=34892&...

Thanks so much! We ended up going with Unirest, which we think is a great fit for the project. I just wanted to say I appreciate your help.

Ok! Now you know where to get the artwork if you ever want to name an open source project "Gryphon" ;)
