The Comment You're Replying To

Thank you, Christine and David. I really appreciate the Alfaerie Graphics; and that anyone can expand the set is truly excellent. The pieces are generally clear, simple, and distinctive; this allows for good visualization of new pieces. The icons are easy [for my son] to manipulate and extend. So they are easy to tinker with, for which this very much a non-artist thanks you. I believe this graphics set has a lot to do with what appears to be the increasing popularity of variants. It's attractive, generally consistent, useful and flexible. I cannot rate this, I am disqualified by having pieces in the set, but the complete Alfaerie Graphics set is beyond excellent, and is a public service for us game geeks. Thank you again. Joe
