This month's June/July challenge is to map a multi-storey villain's lair. This could be anything from the classic necromancer's tower, to a many leveled zeppelin or flying castle. The only requirement is that it have more than one level and that it be used for nefarious purposes.

This should be detailed enough to use as a reference for combat encounters but it is not required to be at a large enough scale to be printed out for use as a battlemap.

This challenge will be closed on the 15th of July. Happy mapping!

Oh man.... another good challenge. I think I might try Dr. Evil's Secret Volcano Lair. :D

:) Now there's an excellent excuse for some lava. Nothing quite like a good volcano lair.

okay... questions popping up...
1. are there any rules about the map having to be on one "page" - course multiple levels would be easier on several separate maps?
2. Mature content - any rules about that? (it is an evil map task after all) ;)

Are you going to map the Evil Pornographer's Lair of Ultimate Doom? :D

That would be the bedroom of any 17 year old these days :0

To answer your question tilt, I think the position we've tended to take about mature content is that if it's not gratuitous and is there for a good reason then it's fine, but be aware that despite the appearance of a high number of old fogies on the site there are some younger people too.

@ Diamond: That'll be my very next map ;)

@ ravells: Yep, thats what I thought ... I'll post a warning then ... and I'm not sure I'm able to carry out my vision anyway *lol*

still need an answer concerning the media for multi-level entries. Could I make my map in a pdf so I don't have to have all levels on the same page?

I'm sure that's fine tilt, but you may have thumbnail scraper problems.

I just didn't have the time I thought I would to participate this time around; maybe next month though. Good luck to all those in for this month! Voting is going to be tough...

Just to say that Tilts entry this month is a multi page PDF and the thumbnail scraper didnt grab and make the image correctly so I am attaching this image below and will hand edit the html to put it in. So to the CLs, dont kick the updater any more or else it will overwrite the changes ill make in a mo...
