    Tell me what you think. I have only viewed the design 1024x768 but have viewed it in all browsers there seems to be a little mis alignment in ns but it is no big deal.

    Nice layout. Good Colors. Might need a little more contrast between page text and the background color.

    Great job capturing the "look and feel" of a medieval / fantasy era and game. The logo is especially good, as is your use of tables, etc.

    However, I'd recommend doing something to create more of a contrast between your text (on both the navigational menu and the home page) and your background. Additionally, consider using a color different than your main text to differentiate links from normal text.

    Also, you may want to remove the underlines from your sub-category headings (Starting, Inventory, People, etc.) so that they aren't perceived as links.

    Overall, great job! Keep up the good work.

    I like the colours, and it seems a fit with the game and the setting. There really aren't that many problems. The graphics are well done. I agree with others that Arial seems to be the new standard on the web; I guess people just got tired of Times New Roman. Anyway, a very nitpick detail, sider.gif on the main page does not align perfectly, it's one pixel to the left. I viewed it on 800x600 and NN4.x.

    Change the font? C'mon, he's using Times New Roman...people always seem to say that Arial is a better "web font"...but I honestly don't think so. I've got a parent who used to be a professional proofreader/typesetter (that sort of thing) who mentioned some study that supposedly proves that Times New Roman is a HIGHLY readable font...as much as any other out there.

    Many popular sites use TNR...personally I like both Times and Arial...and I tolate Verdana.

    Just wanted to thank you guys for the tips/compliments. I am looking into the text problems & the mis-alignment in the tables in netscape.

    I agree with that, you should change the color scheme a bit. Right now you've got only light-brown, brown and dark-brown, kinda boring.
    I hope that this site isn't finished yet: all links between 'alignments' and 'legal note' doesn't work. Overall a clean design, very neat, it made me feel like home.

    Hi,

    Great layout and choice of colors!

    I would suggest, like several other people, that you make the text more visible and easier to read.

    I would also add a little bit more color to the site, maybe by adding some around the main table or something, just to lighten it up a little bit.

    Hope this helps!

    Chris Roane
