The game's art and imagery were created in 2021, and some art assets used the WOMBO AI-assisted image filter (before it was WOBO Dream). This was all before the author or anyone else knew about the unethical practices most AI models use to train their imagery. At that time, WOMBO advertised itself as more of an image filter, much like Google's Deep Dream (circa 2015), and over a year before any known media were talking about the ethical concerns over AI. WOMBO, in the version which was used for some of the imagery in this book, was released over a year before Midjourney, for example, and was assumed to be a filtering tool. The author's choice to use WOMBO was to help create dreamlike and amorphous imagery, to channel the feeling of a dark and strange Neverland.

It is the author, Wayne Robert's, stance and belief—as well as that of Ability Score Games—that AI-generated imagery, in its current incarnation, is unethical and untenable. Until or unless AI models can demonstrably prove they are only trained on fairly and legally obtained images and data, AI imagery should not be used. This was the author's first, only, and last foray into using AI-assisted art, and this version of the book will never be reprinted. If there are future reprints, it will only be after the AI imagery has been replaced by art which did not use AI filters or other AI assistance.
