V2 now with tools:


It is kind of a menu. Pick your favorite dwarf body, your favorite 
helmet, your favorite tool. Or suggest something different. Since it is 
just a draft she just just did it over the DWARF6 mockup - we can 
discuss font later.

As for the license, whatever. She slapped a CC-BY-SA on it based upon 
your previous email. She doesn't have a problem transferring ownership 
to whomever/whatever but I don't think that there is a legal entity that 
can possess it and I don't feel like we want to wade into all that 
entails. It is a favor, a donation to the community.
