    Rob I see what you mean by that shadow. I'll sort it out. They are bats by the way. Ravs, I agree crows would be nicer but I only have crow brushes rather than actual art work, that dont really have any depth to them and I dont have GP's art skills to make my own.

    It was Dorpond who rasied the question, as to whether the challenge is for the best looking VT map or the most useful VT map. I think its a very vaild question and will probably depend on what the sponsor's are looking for. I get the impression from what I've read that they're probably looking for the latter, so I might lose the bats altogether.

    I love the bats! Very cool looking!

    But..

    I woud love them as an image that I can plop down during game. Mainly because the way it is now, the players will be stepping on the bats while they make their way around..

    The bats really should be above the player tokens.

    Which brings up the question: Do any VT's allow for that currently? I know Maptool does not yet but will in version 1.4. Just curious..

    Thanks all for the kind words and the advice through this challenge. I decided to leave the bats in after all, and leave it up to the personal tastes of the viewers. Generic usefulness vs evocative imagery will continue to pull in different directions, but at the end of the day the VT users (more likely the VT using GMs) will have to make the decision based on their own personal preferences.

    Good luck everyone.
