Default Halloween theme

October 25th, 2009, 23:04
We've just activated our Halloween theme. If anything is looking strange for you or you don't see one hell of a pumpkin in the upper right corner, try Shift-Reload.

This was all done by Jimmith — thanks a lot!

We're also experimenting with a new logo. It's still work in progress, but we wanted to get the holiday theme out before Halloween is over. Enjoy!

Ah, some more info: the site will default to the dark layout for the duration because it looks better with this header, but only for new visitors who didn't get their cookies yet.

Very nice. My pumpkins never turn out that good.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

It looks great. Especially the centered ad works really well for the layout.

Scaredy cat!

Some more info on the logo to give credit where credit is due:

The silhouette of the logo was inspired by an image called Castle Silhouette by Alex Girolamo on deviantart. Lovely piece.

The highlights and the big tower are based on a tower Omega sent us when we were trying out new logos many months ago, which never made it for various reasons. So thanks Omega!

Jimmith and I are still working on some details, hopefully we'll have one nice new logo for RPGWatch at the end of the process.

I'm glad people like the artwork

JDR13: Its actually a jolly nice pumpkin, he just made that face for the portrait. If you're scared of him I'll tell him not to hide in your closet or under your bed even though he really wants to.

This Halloween theme thread lacks the Halloween theme.

I like the new watchtower. It reminds me of this picture.

Very nice.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
