As pictures often say more than just words, I'd like to show images as suggestions you could implement; aka mockups.

This mockup shows the character class selection of DD, shown in a nice grid with bigger class images.
Class images taken from the QCFDesign site, a few pages of blogs back. I wanted to take race images, but yeah...
There are also 2 other images, from the other roguelike Dungeon of Dredmor, which shows a quick re-selection of your previous build with the information of the cost; which is the total cost of the items you wore the previous dungeon run.
This may come in handy if you had a perfect setup for your previous run, yet made a fatal human error and lost because of it.
Random puts your faith in Tikki Tooki's hands and let him decide about your following setup. (Though that's just flavor text, no bonus piety and/or worshipping Tikki Tooki from the start of the dungeon included.)
As most times with my mockups, I uploaded the PSD file (PhotoShop Document) at DeviantART, and here's the direct link for easy edits.
The image itself took near no time to create. Typing this post takes longer to do, just saying...
Please post your own imagery here, if you like.
