Graphics sets are used to change the appearance of creatures in the game, such as dwarves and unicorns. They usually come with and are designed to work together with certain tilesets. They can significantly change the appearance of the game and make it easier for players to tell what is happening onscreen.

Exhaustive collection of sprites for all civilized races (dwarves, elves, goblins, humans, and kobolds) including unique images for each profession within each race, as well as zombie, skeleton, and ghost forms. There is also a huge gallery of creatures including livestock, wildlife, and cavern fauna. Many of the animals are collected from other sets and modified to fit, plus many unique to this tile set -- as such it is one of the most comprehensive collections of creature graphics available. Most of the new 2012 animals and animal-men are present, though some are still TBD. The art style is clear and consistent with clean lines and solid colors; classic pixel art. There is also a version available patched onto Obsidian and ready to be used with LNP. This version can be found here.

Combined with a customized main tileset. Credits go to Beefmo, Sphr, DR, Tocky, Herrbdog, Bane18, Dragon Warrior games and me (although I did much more organizing and editing than actually creating).

A graphics set that focuses on consistency and stylized realism to harmonize the different tiles and give a more "medieval" atmosphere to the game. Unlike other tilesets, this also specifically sets aside different tiles for grass with modifications to their graphics raws. This makes it easier to distinguish pasturable areas from bare rock and sand, tell apart different biomes, as well as letting you plan green (or blue, if you're going with cave moss) gardens along your entrance halls. Just make sure to forbid traffic on it to avoid trampling them to bare ground.

A tile and graphic set created with a simple, clean look as a goal. Inspired by Jolly Bastion and referenced from tile sets that have come before. This graphic and tileset is still very much a WIP. It should be completely playable as it is based off Phoebus' Tileset and comes with all of it's graphical assets.

Sharp looking, vanilla styled tilesets that strive to strike a good balance between nice, attractive graphics, while avoiding odd graphical oddities. I have positioned many tiles carefully and put a lot of thought into each one, often obsessively so. I find the cumulative differences from the ASCII add quite a bit to the game. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and the update log attests to that, but the result is pleasing and well-polished. Alternate walls are included, as is the color set and racial graphics for dwarves, humans, elves, goblins, and kobolds.
