I've had this piece sitting around almost finished for who knows how long. Decided to finally call it done.

I play D&D regularly with a group of co-workers and this is a scene from our first ever play session. Taking place in the Forgotten Reamls, I played a dwarf wizard and our party was sent down into newly excavated sewer tunnels under Daggerford to quell a kobold rebellion. The campaign was finished over a year ago already, but I wanted to pay homage to it in the style reminiscient of the old rpgs of the 80's and 90's using the EGA palette.

There's a lot of influence from the Gold Box games as well as both the Eye of the Beholder and Realms of Arkania series. I always felt the Gold Box games could use a proper isometric battle map and a more icon oriented UI instead of tons of text.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to write comments.

@jph Thank you for the many compliments!

@Quiara Glad you like the UI. As much as I hate doing UI's in my day-to-day work, making pixel art UI's for some reason feels fun and relaxing. :D

@Trigonomicon Thank you so much! Sometimes working with strict limitations pays off.

@Amorph Thank you very much!

@Jinn Glad you like it. Thank you!

@DawnBringer If the master of palettes approves this use of EGA colors, I'll take it as the highest compliment. Thank you ever so much!

@critikill I'm glad to hear it looks playable. Thank you!

Really nice use of the EGA colours, and really nice little portraits. Great stuff.

Trigonomicon (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 8/4/2020 04:08

So many small works of art in this. Great work with the limmited color palette, too.

Quiara (Level 6 Garbage) @ 8/3/2020 21:15

God, I'm a sucker for pixel UIs. Good balance between being textures and being readable. Portraits for the characters are obviously lit.
