I am working on Board to Board so cannot give an exact time frame but I'm anxious to complete it all as I have other sites pending. Right now I need to wrap some things with the Member Wars Board and then I will start attacking the others.
This does seem interesting, though one thing that concerns me is the limitations on character images.
It is actually one of my few complaints when it comes to character creation that seems to have carried over this this nor have I ever really understood why it is necessary to lock character images to a select few images.
This is especially frustrating to me as a Dungeon Master since a campaign I am currently running and have consider starting on the site doesn't use humanoid models, races, or characters. Not a single image would work in this case.
Sighs I apologize but I don't believe this will be as helpful for me, at least not at the moment.

Actually, there will be far more images added, even images according to the system. For instance Pathfinder has its own set of images that I will be adding soon.
The images shown will also be based on the game you are creating your Character for, so if you have a Super Hero you will only see Super Hero images.
If you have a small set of royalty free images you will like us to add to Member Wars send them to my Email and I will add them in.
Just tried it. Works well and looks like it can be a great addition to the site.
Thomas, why the dependence on images for TEXT role-playing? I understand some people like to have an image but images are so varied I doubt you can cater for everyone.
This might be more work for you but if the boxes are specific to the system someone plays then it will be more felixble for them as they may not know what to fill in each box.
Fair points, it can work for more general roleplay so I may still use it and I may have a few images.
Well not it isn't but one thing of note is that whatever images is chosen, or perhaps not chosen, will still be seen on the right side of one's post. If none of the images fit, one may just have to go without as it will be more of a distraction then an aid.
Images are not required, that and any such things can be added as part of the character sheet needed to be filled out. I'm sure I can come up with something... If I ever make any posts on the site and become active again.
That's a good point actually, maybe two things can be done for that if JB wants:
1. An option to not show images at all or
2. An option to have generic images like clouds, a forest and other things that does not have to be a 'face'.
