PC1 Human Fighter
PC2 Human Fighter
PC3 Human Fighter
PC4 Half-Elf F/M/T
PC5 Human Cleric
PC6 Human Mage
Are PC1-PC6 all male or are there any females in that party?

PC3 and PC6 are female.
For what it's worth, the cleric was actually neutral. PC6 was CG but you can make her evil if you like...she is wearing dark colors after all!


COKPC1 Human Fighter
COKPC2 Human Fighter
COKPC3 Human Fighter
COKPC4 Kender Cleric/Thief
COKPC5 Human Mage
COKPC6 Female Human Mage
I assume that the Kender and Raistlina are the two females in the party.

Correct. Raistlina is, of course, neutral.

Using icons from Treasures of the Savage Frontier and Pools of Darkness does give more variety to the PC combat icons. Thanks!

I think I might have to assemble some Gnomes, Halflings, and Dwarves from scratch.

According to the Monster Manual (1E), Dwarves usually have tan skin and brown, black, or gray beards, Gnomes tend to have wood brown skin and white beards, while Halflings have ruddy skin and curly brown hair.

My thought would be to go through the default Gold Box icons and pick the ones that haven't been picked yet. You've got an awful lot of dude-with-sword-and-shield there.

Then again, if they haven't been picked, maybe nobody wants them...

Too bad there is not some browser utility or something to create icons like those that were available in the old GB games. One where you could swap out the body parts and such.

Funny story about bearded guy on the upper right (icon 7):

I used the default party from Gateway (not so hot, but whatever) and had a human female mage with the headdress as her icon (similar to icon 4). When I transferred the party from Gateway to Treasures, she suddenly developed a mustache and beard (due to the icon shift, the choices hadn't lined up properly; apparently they didn't bother to figure out exact equivalents for each of the item choices).

I decided she was transgendered and Amanitas had helped her transition as a reward for saving the Realms from Vaalgamon.

So close.  You almost had all six icons of my default party in there, and you removed one at the last minute.  That makes me sad.

OK, I placed your Female Human Ranger in slot 37. I always equip my Ranger with a sword and use her in melee, but I understand the desire to give her a bow. I had to make a lot of editorial decisions, removing some icons that looked very similar to existing ones, including one of my own default party.

So, are there any icons that people would like me to remove?

Or icons that you really wish were included but are not?

I'm open to suggestions about how this CBODY file could be improved.

I didn't submit any, so I am clearly in no position to complain, but my party would usually include a dwarf with a large axe.

You would like the Male Dwarf Fighter in slot 35 with Axe and Shield to be replaced by a Dwarf with a Two-Handed Axe. Is that correct?

The small "female caster" on the bottom that I did with the green robes leaves a lot to be desired (not one of my favorite icons).  Even with the hair change, I still don't think she looks great. You could replace it with something better if someone offers or you have another small icon ready to go.  If not, I'll be happy to submit a better looking one.

Though, I think just picking a different color scheme might go a long way, and you could probably take care of that yourself.

Yep, that would be great. I like the hood though so the weapon is probably all I would change.
