Some posts deleted to eliminate conflicting info.

I'm reposting the complete information in the Descent Questions & Clarification Thread.
Please ask rule related questions in there.  Thank you.

Could we get some character photos? Images from the cards or photos of the miniatures would be cool.

Maybe pictures at some point.  Miniatures... doubtful.

I will happily change your character image to whatever your DH avatar is.  That was what I did originally so you guys would know who is who.

See if you can get a close up Screen shot.  Maybe wearing that Headless Horseman helmet.  :D

The Descent Map post has been updated to show who has moved, who hasn't and all the visible monsters' current health.

Mac, I checked out the map post using IE 6 and definitely see what you mean by "can't see anything to the right." It's COMPLETELY invisible outside of your window size. Obviously something needs to change. If it doesn't change on our end anytime soon, here's a couple options that you might have (of course, your computer may play nice, so let us know).

Option 1: change your screen resolution to 1600 x 1200 (which is what I'd guess Chris is using).

Option 2: Use Firefox - it's a great browser anyway! ;)  Actually, for some reason the map image and text is still visible outside of the normal viewing area when using Firefox. It works nicely for this situation, even if that is not the way that the layout should be handled.

I've added tags on the map post to the special abilities and other items not described elsewhere.  I've also added tags to the stuff in the "Cut/Paste Turn Order" post so you won't have to do alot of deleting to trim out the excess.

I'll work on doing the same to your character sheets, as well as adding a legend detailing the other items on the board and their effect on you.  Also, I'll start putting in details about how to head back to town, and what exactly you can do there.  (Fortunately, right now, there's nothing to do there, since you're all too healthy and too poor.  Hopefully we can remedy those for you.  ;)

There are some pictures on the map that I can't tell who or what it is.  Basically I know Dragon and myself.

I can't tell enemies from teleports from friend.

Can I get a little help here?

The blue bordered circular object are you guys.  The images representing them are your Dragon Hobbies avatars. 

The green backed, octagonal objects are your familiars.

The things the other guys keep killing are the enemies. 

The thing your heading for, is a stairwell, and your certain death.  ;D

The mini-map is pretty much a radar, showing all the living objects in the dungeon.  They are:

Blue - Players
Green - Familiars
White - Monsters
Red - Master/Named Monsters
