Wizards of the Coast, the company behind the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, announced over the weekend that it will not allow AI-generated illustrations in books for the game.

AI Illustrations in D&D Books

The prohibition of AI-generated illustrations comes after D&D fans noticed illustrations in Wizards of the Coast’s D&D book “Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants” that appeared to be possibly created by an AI. You can check out some of the illustrations in question in one of the embedded X-posts below.

Upon discovering this, Wizards of the Coast stated that it will update its guidelines for illustrators providing them with materials, so AI-generated illustrations will no longer be permitted. The illustrator behind the AI-generated illustrations in “Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants” also mentioned that he will be redoing them.
