Tony, I've updated them to offer a plain background (as a variant). I must admit, the plain background looks much cleaner. I'll have to think about a new graphic for the shah. <p>By the way, the elephant and counselor graphics are based on a new font I'm having created. The work is being done by Tom Buhrman (of ItsYourTurn fame). I'll be posting a page soon that shows a preview of this font. <p>I did the chariot graphic myself! Thanks for the kind words.

David: I really like the piece graphics, particularly the Chariot. The traditional Rook image is great, but its not a Chariot! The Elephant is neat too! The Ferz image is very nice. My only question: how about taking the transformation of these images to the next step by changing the King?!The background image is interesting, but I prefer the plain board. Same for Chaturanga.
