6/2/2021: Title was changed as the IP does not include Conan the Barbarian.
The blockchain gaming platform Vulcan Forged has secured IP rights to Frank Frazetta Art and other four major fantasy artists Intellectual Property to bring them into NFTs.
It’s worth mentioning that some of the original licensed artworks are selling for millions of dollars.
Here is the list of the secured IPs:
Sanjulian: Notable for his magazine and novel covers. With over 60 years in creating fantasy worlds and art, his artwork sells online for thousands of dollars.
Ciruelo Cabral: Known for his work with Dragon illustrations. He has worked with George Lucas in the Bantam trilogy, Chronicles of the Shadow War, and he also has illustrated cards for Magic: The Gathering.
Frank Frazetta: World-known fantasy and science fiction artist known as the “Godfather” of fantasy art. He illustrated “Conan The Barbarian” in eight out of twelve volumes and influenced the next generation of artists like no one else.
Boris Vallejo: A Fantasy and erotica (who-hoo) painter with worldwide recognition. His painting made it to best-selling science fiction and fantasy paperbacks.
How will Vulcan Forged use the IPs?
So far, we know that many of the artworks will be minted for the first time on the blockchain as 1 of 1 Vulcanites. Besides the digital ownership of the actual artwork, Vulcan Forged users will use the tokens as champions inside Vulcan Verse, the flagship MMORPG, and other ecosystem games.
The current IP licenses will also allow Vulcan Verse to use the characters in the five upcoming gamebooks with profound lore accompanying the whole ecosystem.
