    I like it. Looks great!

    I was debating whether I would prefer the bat to be red, but I think I like the black with a white outline.

    Of course, on a black field, it becomes Just the white outline.

    If you have any ideas for variations that you would like to see, feel free to toss them out, I will gladly work them up for you.

    The only other thing I am considering is can we put other small images in the open black space underneath each wing? I'm thinking something like crossed swords or a battle axe on the left and an anvil on the right.

    If you want those tertiary charges to be quite small, it might be appropriate to say the bat is between them. However, I don't know if they'd be large enough to actually tell what they are. Remember, the size of these items in-game will almost certainly be quite a bit smaller than the images we're using to give examples.

    Yes. Good call.
    Right now, the builder scales the charges to be roughly equal, so it would mean a smaller bat and castle, as the builder adjusts to fit 4 charges instead of two.

    With that said, I would prefer to stay with what I have then (thunderbird's last image on Page 2). And like Trenyc said, even if the additional charges could be made smaller, they might be so small that it is difficult to discern what they are. What do I need to do to submit the CoA for approval?

    Hi Sargon,
    Your design is in the cue, if approved we will load it to the College wiki. Hopefully the Tues. night hangout will move the devices we have for review along :)

    I hate to keep bumping this, but how is the queue coming along? Am I still in there somewhere?

    The issue we're stuck on is that a black bat on a black field with a white outline is effectively line art, which it looks like we're going to have to prohibit.

    So, without having reached a decision, we're not sure what to tell you.

    However, you are still in the queue.

    Thanks for the update. Should I expect a final response and/or recommendation from the group or do I need to start thinking about alternatives?

    It would not hurt to think of alternatives.
    Might be faster than us making a decision. :oops:

    We have a contest going on right now, so I would not expect rule changes/decisions for about 6 weeks.
