Hi all. I'm Jin, and I'll be working on the designs for the Stack Exchange sites as they graduate from the beta phase. Each site will have its own unique theme that will reflect its topic. However, all sites will share quite a bit of common elements so they feel like they're part of the Stack Exchange family.
I'm in the very early stage of brainstorming about the design for the RPG site's final theme. Before I go any further, I'd like RPG.se community's opinion on the direction I'm thinking about.
Looking at the types of questions and popular tags, it seems a lot of them are about D&D. The design I have in mind is very graphics heavy around the shell of the site(headers, footer, site background). I'm thinking about using Medieval graphical elements, vintage paper texture, grunge effects, dragons, dice etc. Basically, a more subtle version of http://www.worldofwarcraft.com or http://www.wizards.com/dnd/Community.aspx
I think it'd work well for the RPG.SE site. However, I was wondering if such a design would alienate other types of RPG gaming questions?
If you have any other design ideas for the site, please let me know.
BTW, I really like the dice logo idea proposed here
