Clean "forum sized" Lankhmar logo needed

We have had a Lankhmar forum at The Piazza for a while now, but we do not have a logo for it yet. :(

If anyone has the time to make a logo for Ashtagon to upload to the server, that would be really helpful.

The logo would need to go onto the Campaign Worlds page and match the other logos there. It needs to do the following things:
  • It needs to be a clean logo (so if you crop one from a RPG book, you need to get rid of the book background),
  • It needs to be 90 x 30 pixels to fit into the forum (If you don't save it that size, someone will need to do it again),
  • It needs to be saved in PNG format,
  • It needs to be kept in the right aspect ratio, so you need to add some transparent pixels around to logo, to centre it in the 90 x 30 space.
Ashtagon has the final say, as it is her forum, but if anyone has the time to have a go at this, we might be able to give her a few options to choose from.

90 x 30 is hardly big enough to truly display the grandeur (squalor?) of the Greatest City. Nevertheless, here's my try at it.

True. Sometimes we have struggled to get other campaign setting logos to fit in the available space. But the mind's eye can fill in some of the details. The main thing is for fans to be able to recognise the logo.

It looks like Ashtagon has managed to create/source a logo, so we don't need to look for one any more, but thanks very much for your help.

Ah, well. I guess I'll work up a Middle Earth one and a Call of Cthulhu one, then.

That would be awesome. Thanks.

tbh, the log I put in was once I created years ago, back when I had expected Lankhmar to become a forum much sooner. I'm not really happy with it, as it kind of fades out against the softwood colour scheme. But it was already uploaded. I will entertain submissions for a better logo image.

Its pretty faded against subsilver2 as well. Definitely could use a better one.

What do you think of the logo that AlHazred made? Is that usable, or does it need to be tweaked?

It needs color, or it will be worse than the current one.

Eh, I fixed the lower left corner anyway, it was bothering me.

I could color it. Any suggestions? The copy of TSR's Lankhmar I have is white (and has a different, ordinary, font anyway.)

How about using the sandy brown color from the current logo, but with the more strongly defined borders your logo has?

Very nice.

I wonder if Ashtagon will like it. :-)
