Basic Notifications to the user are in place

I live. Life got kinda busy, there was a vacation, etc. etc.

Anyway, after lots of UI sketches trying to capture all interactions with the game I finally decided on a layout.

The main communication feature for the game is a Notification Log across the top of the screen. It will retain the complete history for a battle, allowing you to scroll backwards and forwards.

Of course, this means undoing a number of other things that were creeping up towards the top of the screen.

A secondary goal is to keep the mouse interactions in the top left corner. I don't want to have to play tennis between the left and right sides of a wide-screen monitor.

Are you planning on doing an expanding drop-down to display tens of messages at once? Filter? Message search?

There are lots of neat features you can do with notifications and logging.
