Hi All!

I've made a new theme for Slay. Sean seems to be busy with other projects and hasn't uploaded it to this site yet, but in the meantime it is available
in the "Files" section of this Yahoo group....

Cheers,

Can you tell us what the Theme is so we know whether we are interested in downloading it?

Okay....

It is *not* fancy sprites jumping around looking pretty. Just the opposite. I made all the icons as
plain and plainly readable as I could think of, and
so that they don't clutter up the map with visual noise. The men are chess pieces -- pawn, knight,
rook, and king. A hut is a dollar sign. A castle
is, well, a big fat O. Instead of trees I used bare-bones symbols for deserts and swamps. After playing with this theme for a week or so I went back to my previous favourite (Mafia -- "badda-boom") and even
that seemed crowded by comparison.

There is a screenshot in the "Photos" section of the
slaygame group.

I don't claim that everyone will like my "Symbolic" theme. But I do, and maybe you will too.

Cheers,
Dave W
