We've had calls for more/new icons before, but I thought I'd take a few minutes to put together a list of specific suggestions, and urge other to do the same.

EDIT: As I think of new suggestions, and add them here, I will note them as "(added date)". I do not expect to make note of them being added to Realm Works here, if any actually are.

New Icons:

We have Blue Pawn, Blue Potion, and Blue Sphere.. but only spheres for Red, Green, Yellow, and Gray. Fill in the colors for the flags as well.

Fantasy/General use:
  • Crystal Ball
  • Bell
  • Book (open)
  • Book (closed)
  • Bookshelf
  • Candle
  • Eye of Horus (stylized Egyptian eye)
  • Ankh
  • Scales
  • Justice figure
  • magic circle(s)
  • pentacle
  • Treasure chest (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Torch (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Oil lamp (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Hand-held magnifying glass (for clues/investigation) (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • coins falling from one hand to another (maybe a bit too much for a small icon) (suggested ed Feb 21, 2017)
  • Stonehenge-style menhir (possibly too close to Paizo's golem logo to work) (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Lion face (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Tiger face (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Bear face (suggested Feb 21, 2017) (oh, my!)
  • Dragon face (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Fish (suggested Feb 21, 2017)
  • Bird (suggested Feb 21, 2017)

+1 from here

Load your own icon would be nice but might be difficult with import-export of stuff.
Maybe if we have to provide one of the default icons as well, that RW can fall back on if it cannot find the custom icon. When selling stuff one could add a little icon pack that the enduser could opt to import or not.

Well, not a high priority for me but we can always make wishes :-)

Deputy Calendar Champion

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Worldographer (Hexographer 2), LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.

But you've put "(added <date>)" to the list.
Some people might think that this is when it was added into RW :-)
