Card images are JPG files under the
Images filenames are an ascii-only version of card names, with neither space nor punctuation,
and the .jpg file extentions.
For example: https://static.krcg.org/card/powerbasezurich.jpg
Note there are also images for the card backs: https://static.krcg.org/card/cardbackcrypt.jpg and https://static.krcg.org/card/cardbacklibrary.jpg
The translated images, when available, can be found in the subdirectory matching the language,
under the same filename as the original card image.
For example: https://static.krcg.org/card/fr/fame.jpg
Original card scans are available set by set in the set subdirectory,
with one directory per set.
For example: https://static.krcg.org/card/set/jyhad/44magnum.jpg
These images URLs are used in the vtes.json file.
Finally, you can download all the current official cards images (in english) as a single ZIP file.
If you need cache busting, you can add any
to any resource URL here.
For example, https://static.krcg.org/card/fame.jpg#2022-01-25-14
Alternatively, you can use the /bust prefix as URL path, followed by any digits. For example, https://static.krcg.org/bust/2022012514/card/fame.jpg
On a similar note, the card images files hold a meaningful modification date, which means you can also inspect and trust this modification date in the HTTP header of the file:
curl -I -X HEAD "https://static.krcg.org/card/archon.jpg"
will get you (among others):
Last-Modified: Thu, 19 Aug 2021 20:01:34 GMT
you can use the HEAD method to gather this information before querying the files
Vector and raster versions of symbol images are available under the following directories:
- https://static.krcg.org/svg/ has SVG versions that display well at all resolutions
- https://static.krcg.org/png/ has PNG with alpha (transparency) for your compositions
- https://static.krcg.org/png_wb/ has PNG with alpha (transparency) and white borders and background, ideal for online use and inclusion in third party tools.
Each directory has the same sub-structure: clan contains clan icons, including, for Sabbat clans, the "red wax seal" version prefixed seal, with clan/deprecated containing the old symbols that have now been replaced. disc/inf contains disciplines, virtues and other ability icons like Flight, Maleficia and Striga, using the standard trigrams as filenames except for flight, disc/sup contains the superior version of disciplines with the same filenames. Finally, icon contains other game icons like blood and pool cost, advanced and merged symbols, etc.
Please note that a number of additional World of Darkness symbols are also available on the official World of Darkness website
