Apparently the post I made yesterday never showed up. Huh. Anyway, I clarified a couple of the rules a bit more. I'm experimenting with how it's laid out at the moment... I think what I'm going to go with is going to be something like a bigger version of the World of Nintendo background, with more tiers. More tiers for more characters!
Mm, they are a bit. I spent a long time trying to find a look for them that worked, because I wanted a theme going there like what I had with the Nintendo picture (the platforms there were based on Mario blocks). I actually experimented with using actual consoles as the platforms, but they were difficult to stack convincingly, and I didn't want to look like I was favouring consoles by having some higher up the pile than others.
In the end I just looked at the colours consoles have had over the years, and black/dark grey seems to have been a heavy favourite, though light grey/white was a close second. I just went with that. Hopefully it won't notice so much when it's full of characters.
Teev, one of my real-life friends has already begged me to put Raz in. So consider it done.
EDIT: Oh, and Old Man, I'm gonna go ahead and put that down as a resquest for Axel.
