The Ancients is a game set on Earth. In 200BC. The Roman Republic is slowly taking the mediterranean by storm, the second of the punic wars has just ended, yet the war against Macedon has just begun - and this is just in Italy. Travel and explore the land and peoples, from the Lusitanians of the Iberian Peninsula to the ancient Ainu of Japan.

Well the Lockpicks are too rounded and look more like blowtorches, and most of the metal items in the icons have outdated Palettes and are more shallow than I'd like, in colour.

The foraging basket looks like a burn victim and the polemaking makes little sense. :D

I would redo the backrounds for them, since theyre very... "cheap" (gradients never work well IMO)

Icons as a whole looks awesome!

+1 to this.

I'd like to get a much more sassy thing going on, but I think i'll leave that to a future trademark that will evolve in-game.

Keep in mind that these are still first-draft graphics, so please don't judge us too harshly! :)

Well, here they are, the first graphic-icon representations of the skills that can be experienced in-game.
By the time people are playing however, some of these may be removed and others added.
