    Just got my tablet back and I'm thinking of participating. I'm only not sure what to do to crop the finished UI in the tiles correctly, since I remember trying to draw an UI some years ago and giving up at that part. But now I guess I'm going to put the layers of the original UI tiles over the custom made UI, then I'll be able to cut it with the correct sizes.

    Damn, that's some sexy idea for the slots. I'm gonna make the inventory look like an open backpack without a visible slot grid (just like inventory was in Ultima Online (1997)).

    WIPs from yesterday.

    @Naze, I think that was where the portrait is in place not the inventory slots.

    I love this idea with the inventory slots being stone-hallways in a ... i guess its a castle? I'm not sure, but is it possible to do partial transparent icons for inventory items? I guess not, but then again I never tested this. This could probably allow for a 3d-ish look when combined with the slot idea.

    Here's a thing to consider though: I think you are working at a much higher resolution atm? Remember that eventually you will have to downscale to 512x512 pixel tiles... which might blur all those little details on the tiny stone bricks, etc.

    It really should be updated - especially the participants list.

    Hey guys, I'll be joining since I'm flat broke and neck deep in debts and wouldn't mind the money in case I win. :p

    Won't start working on it until next week, though.
