Thanks for the link! I've recently been working on making new vector images of the four Ogres from Against the Ogre Horde. The ones from HeroScribe's All-In-One Icon Pack (http://www.heroscribe.org/icons.html) were fairly low quality blobs. So I'm using Gimp to grab the Ogre images from the rulebook scan (available here on YeOldeInn), clean them up, import them into InkScape, simplify the path a couple times (to remove extraneous path nodes and keep the file size down), then touch up some of the curves. I'll try to remember to post pictures here once I reach Champion status...

Once those are done, I'll take a stab at adding the Monster vector images into a font file with glyphrstudio that you mentioned.

Thanks!

I did finish the updated Ogre Icons, but haven't added them into a font file yet. Here are some raster image comparisons between the original HeroScribe Ogre Icons (top photo), and my touched up versions (below)...

Wow, those look significantly better than what's in HeroScribe!

Indeed!

Count Mohawk, I sent you a PM. Did you get it? It is still showing as sitting in my 'Outbox' as opposed to in my 'Sent messages' folder where I would expect it to be. Let me know if you got it.

Thanks!
