James: Having seen your impressive Jetan graphics I was a bit suprised that you would give these green and blue ones an 'Excellent.' But, thank you very much for taking the time to do so.

You mentioned that 'the capital pieces are multi-colored, underlining their relative importance.' But I should point out that the multi-color was really to distinguish a 'Morph' piece. So if a green Morph-Bishop captured, for example, an opponent's blue Queen [and then morphed into a queen] we would replace the green Morph-Bishop with a two-colored green Morph-Queen.

Of course, others can use these pieces (some of which have 'markings') for other purposes than morphing. In fact, I just now realized I can use them on a game being tested with Jeremy. Must let him know. Thanks for bringing this up... I had overlooked that.

Christine... just saw your comment too... thanks... I was thinking maybe the green was too bright and was possibly choosen while I was on cold medication.... Best regards to all.
