View Full Version : *** November / December 2012 Lite Challenge: Built on a Word ***

11-24-2012, 03:46 AM
This was an idea from Lonewanderer in the suggestions forum (http://www.cartographersguild.com/mapping-challenge-suggestions/19534-built-word.html) which was universally liked:

This month's challenge is to build a region/city/town/building that is based around a word supplied by the Moderators. You can make anything so long as it clearly reflects the supplied word, for example the word "eight" could be the City of Eight Towers, a city where everything is based of an octagon, or the word "high" could be a city in the clouds or a really tall tower.

You have a choice of 3 words:




The contest will close on or about the 15th of December. If you have not entered a contest before, please read the rules which are in this subforum.

Best of luck to everyone!

Sounds interesting!

Bonus votes if we manage to incorporate all three words into our map concept somehow? :)

This sounds interesting, I'll have to keep it in mind as I sketch maps in the next little while!

Now you can ... just create a map of a place near you using "eight", "broken" or "black" and enter it in the December (regular) Challenge. ;)
I always wanted to create a map from the 1st to the 15th of a month that could be entered in both challenges ... I just never have any free time. :(

Well, it's the 16th and it looks like there aren't too many of us CLs poking around the halls this winter.

If you have any last minute changes you wish to do I suggest you get on em!

I will be out for the afternoon and have a business meeting later but unless somebody has locked this up for voting by then, I will try to get it done tonight.

So, I'll just say 6pm Arizona time is the cutoff. If you are going to try posting after that you are playing it risky (I believe that's 8pm Eastern time btw). Honestly, I might not get to it until midnight and someone else might do it before then. It is the 16th after all.

Have fun and keep drawing!
