I have replaced the more orange Motif pieces with these more brown pieces. I made these pieces before the orange pieces, and I originally made the orange pieces to replace these. One problem with these pieces is that they all have a border of light grey pixels around them, which shows up poorly on dark backgrounds. Although I haven't fixed this, I have provided a light marble board on which the light grey borders don't show. I decided that the more orange pieces didn't look good on any boards, while these pieces did. In the future, I might see what I can do about fixing these pieces, but it will probably involve recreating them all.
