Colours - Max 32.
Transparency - Optional.

I think that seems fine. It states "not unlike parkour", rather than just "parkour".

it references parkour and a postman, so there's an implication of contemporaneity - but would something like a ninja on sengoku rooftops, or the hashashin in 11th century jerusalem, or even neo - still count? - as long as the action was of a free-running character?

You hit the nail on the head :)

It may be a good idea; however, Mambazo did specify no animation :o

Anyway, I feel the challenge is really about indicating motion, sans motion.

 It really should allow animation. It would be more fun that way )

Aaahhh...this would of been nice if animation was allowed. Could of seen some nice running and jumping anims.
