|Status||resolved||Product Branch||0.15 ancient branch|
|Summary||0008634: Spell & Ability Icons|
We're in the process of updating and standardizing all of the game's spell and ability icons, following a template devised by roctavian:
1. All the icons should have a background matching their type: square for spells, octagonal for abilities/evocations, and + shaped for invocations.
2. The various schools and gods have associated color schemes; Cheibriados invocations are teal, ice is blue, translocations are a certain shade of purple. Obviously it's fine to use colors from outside of these as necessary, but using the "right" color is encouraged.
3. Don't get hung up on trying to represent the spell's effect exactly. A strong, memorable symbol is far more effective as an icon than an exact diagram of what the spell does. For examples, see Sticky Flame and Lugonu's Banish invocation.
4. If the existing icon is fine, there's nothing wrong with simply modifying it to fit the new style and applying the correct background.
I've attached an image with the blank backgrounds and a few examples; there are dozens more already pushed to trunk.

Not 100% about summon hydra or small mammal, but figured I'd upload what I got.
|I actually really like the hydra and small mammals one. :)|
|I think the ray at the top could be bigger. Like the fist of an angry god.|
|Forgot to mention, but these are all in.|
|Looks like these all got done!|
