Thank you, I am glad you like it. I agree that "Beasts" (moststers) should be a part of the archive. I will add Beasts in a couple of weeks.

Interesting idea. Yours is the first complaint I've gotten about the color scheme, although it may just be the only complaint vocalized thus far. I would certainly be willing to make some changes, but I'm curious ... what browser you use? I've never heard of lumpy text before, nor do I see the symptoms you are speaking of. I'm using Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 7, Safari 4, and Firefox 3.5 on Mac and PC.

Some people can see it, some can't. If you put a bunch of red and blue polka-dots on a black background, the red ones will appear closer than the blue. The same happens with text, to a lesser degree, depending on whether the edge of the character lands on a red element or a blue one. And each character will be different, so some appear closer, some further, making it bumpy.

Well I appreciate the concern. If I get further complaints on the color scheme I will change it. I don't feel like it's worth the effort to change the colors unless I get further complaints from those who may not have the specific, acute vision that you do. If I change it to black text on white I may get other people complaining, as no web design will make 100% of the people happy. I'll keep this issue under consideration.

UPDATE. There is a way for each user to have their own theme. A user with an account can choose a white theme if that is what they want. Maybe this will entice you to login to and use the site now? Maybe not. :-) But the option is available for those with a dislike of darker themes.

EVERYONE calling more beta-testers, come over to:

I just uploaded a customized character sheet including frames, tables and image all in a pdf format. Worked fine. I think you have something here! :D

Nightstrike is awesome! thanks.

As far as search, search is re-indexed once per hour. She'll be available via "Search" soon.

BTW, consider creating an account, so you can edit the characters you upload if you make a mistake.

TheThing, please post these neat Dungeon characters when you get a minute. I'd post them myself but I don't know how many points they are nor have the Char Sheets, GCA files, etc. Thanks.

Okay, I've gotten to play with it a bit, and the Browse Characters desperately needs a "Sort By" field. The chars seem to be unsorted -- either random, or maybe in the order they were uploaded. As a user, I would expect them to be sorted alphabetically by default, but with the option to sort by TL or point value.
