Oh? The new theme? Yeah. I just wanted to see what it would look like. Back when we were talking about black-on-white vs. other-way-’round I threw together this inverse of the TwentySided theme as an experiment. Then I got a bright idea: Hey, I’ll use this for Halloween!
Except, the little dice images looked awful because they were on a white background with shadows. So I re-shot pictures of all the dice, cut them cropped them, colored them, reduced them.
Also, the icons didn’t match. So I came up with these lame stand-ins. They don’t match, color-wise.
DMotR now looks like rubbish, and if I want it to look right I’ll need to re-make all the navigation and logo graphics. I’m quickly realizing that this is one of those “In for a penny, in for twelve metric tonnes” sort of deals. I’m going to stop sinking time into this and just let it be. It’s just a couple of days. I’ll restore the old theme on Nov 1st.
To those who like the new theme and think I should make it “an option”: I’m open to suggestions. Switching to a black theme means replacing the dice roller, the DMotR graphics, the category icons, and swapping the other various dice and logos on the site. You can’t change all that by swapping out CSS files, which is how most sites allow users to theme-switch. The site has a lot of legacy stuff we need to support and a lot of cruft, which makes the introduction of new features more problematic.
Also: Happy Halloween.

It's not a legend. It was real. There was a time before DLC. Before DRM. Before crappy ports. It was glorious.
The product of fandom run unchecked, this novel began as a short story and grew into something of a cult hit.
