Heh, that was coincidental (and the "binge" part was Phil's fault)l, though it reminds me that they haven't, unless it was at the wedding and we didn't see it.

Hmm. An intriguing idea. The Symphony title graphic could probably use a little refreshing anyway (it's a bit low-rez and at the time it was made, GIF was the only reliable way to get transparent backgrounds in all browsers, which greatly limited the available color depth), and the intermediate stages would call from some fontology, which is always fun.

Apart from the obvious challenge of envisioning what the transitional phases would look like, the main challenge there would be sourcing the base images. For instance, there's a weapon missing from my set that would be needed to do a similar sort of graphic for anytime before Knights III. I have a photo of a sword that kinda LOOKS like the Thorn of the Rose, but that wouldn't feed the bulldog in, for instance, the border of an S2 title image.

Hey Terminus, feel like another project? :)

Well, there wouldn't actually be that much - there are, after all, only two Symphonies between 1 and 4 - but as you see above, the idea does make work for more than just me. :)
