Is it possible for the API to create transparent graphics (like auras), except in shapes other than circles and squares?

Just curious, because if the answer is "yes" then that might open up some interesting possibilities :-)

Yes, you should be able to create any SVG ( Scalable Vector Graphics ) path with the createObj function. Just set the fillColor property to an html color that includes transparency (#RRGGBB AA ). The trickiest part is calculating the coords and formatting the path JSON properly.

Look at WeaponArcs for an example of a script that does this.
