Massive Layout/Code Update
An extensive code and layout update has been applied to the game. It would be best to do a CTRL+F5 or clear your browser's cache to take advantage.
Users on the desktop version can now view a more detailed listing of a creature's battle effects by clicking their status info area during battle.
Users can view the Kin OR form of a creature to its side during battle, whichever is available. This position will be re-arranged with the mobile interface.
Waiting message fades opacity during PVP games. Not that important, but I think it's a nice touch.
An annoying horizontal scrollbar in the Chrome web browser overlay menus should be resolved.
The following pages are now mobile compatible when the game is accessed from mobile.puppetnightmares.com: Dungeons, World Map, Login Menu, Login Notice, Story Battles, PVP Battles, Camp Creatures, Items, Equips, Marbles, Items, Parties. These updated pages support hotkeys (If you have Support Status) and playing in any orientation you want. Rotate your device to try the alternative layouts. It's even functional if you play on a desktop.
Battle hotkeys are now accessible on Mobile with Support Status. So if you want to hook up a keyboard to your tablet, you can play just like you do now.
More standardized-looking buttons.
The taskbar and mini chat are now available, making this as full-featured as the desktop version.
If you'd like to help with testing, please remember what pages have been announced as having support before using "Help>Report a Problem." I am only interested in Mobile Feedback for those pages only.
You can access the mobile version at any time at mobile.puppetnightmares.com. The Mobile Mode will be linked on the front page once it's further along.
Thanks for reading and being a part of the community!

Layout Update #2
Warning: a CTRL+F5 is necessary for this update to function correctly.
Timers count down from their initial value. The countdown won't be completely accurate, but I think it's a nice touch.
You can now enable/disable Safety Locking for an equip by clicking its unlock/unlock icon below it, saving you the trouble of clicking again at the top.
Edit: This change was partially rescinded because I felt the unnecessary unlocks made it a bit busier than it needed to be on screen. You can still click them away, but to lock new ones you'll still need to use the top menu.
You can now rename equipment without a naming ticket.
Renaming equips was moved to the top menu and is now called "Change Name." This modified option allows you to rename multiple equips at once.
Unlike creatures, a unique name for your equipment isn't required.
Renaming one equip at a time is still available on the equipment status screen.
Descriptions for a few newer items were cut back.
":NL:" commands were not being line broken in the Camp>Item screen; this is fixed.
I fixed a bug obscuring some party data because of a layout change I made (I forgot to update the page correctly).

I didn't want to have to upload this yet but I screwed up uploading higher resolution icons than the game was ready for.
Anyway, here's the highlights of this update:
Universal Auto Battle Button that can change shape with the layout.
Scaled back UI on Desktop.
New camp icons (only creatures have been updated).
Various layout changes and fixes.
HP or EP values will change color as a creature grows weaker in your camp menu.
This will probably be messy for you if you don't ctrl+f5 or clear your browser cache, whichever works best for you.

High Fashion Bug
The new Highest Fashion command was corrupting assignments a bit. Headgears were placed in the armor slot and vice versa if it was used. If you utilized this command, it's recommended that any creatures you used it on be stripped, and then re-apply the equipment you want them to wear.
