Create a Map in Notepad or some other word processor, using nothing but "standard fonts." You know the ones with recognizable letters.

Have you ever looked at an e-mail address and said "ye gods, I'm in a corridor filled with monsters?"


(sorry, this idea made me think of good old ascii NetHack :) )

While I do find the idea interesting, I do not think it would make a great challenge due to the probably low number of entrants & the severe technical limitations of the challenge. Maybe saying a map inspired by ASCII maps or art, but not necessarily done that way ... dunno. I just think the results wouldn't necessarily be that pretty.

Dwarf Fortress!!!! But I really don't think we would have too many takers.

If you want to make it more accessible, you could say it has to be a map done in something like ASCIIPaint (http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=14588.0).

This reminds me of Kingdom of Kroz ^.^ Only there the monsters were ascii, not the walls...

Asciipaint is cheating, let's do this in the old way, keyboard + code tags :D
Just like this epic battle !
