Ultima VII Party Planner

In an effort to learn more about backbone.js I made a web application that is easily considered beautifully useless (beauty in the eye of the beholder, useless in the eye of everyone else). Really, this is probably one of the finest work of code writing I've accomplished to date and there are maybe ten people in the world who will use it.

Menion makes out like a bandit.
There is plenty of room for improvements, but I'd like to write about it anyway.

The picture is an example of a typical, eight character, all level six party. You have a list of all trainers to go visit, who to train when you get there, and about where they are on the map. It also shows how much gold to take to each trainer, and the total cost of all training.
