    I don't understand how the PS mods not wanting to award you with mod status for doing a bunch of art projects for an april fools joke warrants shutting this entire project down.

    I don't think anybody actually wants this to stop, but I don't see how getting PS mod status would have anything to do with an april fools project. Mod status is for modding things, not running this entire (very well done) project.

    I don't know if this was reserved but I didn't see any done so-

    I grew up seeing beautiful things in my head and always wished I could explain to others exactly what I was seeing. I've gotten used to using words.

    Success

    File > Download

    Apologies to Wichu since I totally handed in all the sprites by the time I saw those wonderful two dragons.

    Please keep this file in IS until perhaps the end of the week then we will go public.
