Taken thanks for your interest :)

Project Scope:
Hi my name is Hal and I'm working on a little project called Arkham Investigator over on Boardgamegeek: Arkham Investigator: Core set (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/138963/arkham-investigator-core-set)

The game has been released as a playtest version and will be released soon (hopefully in the next couple of weeks) as a free to download print and play game. I hope to build some interest in the game and look to release as an actual kickstarter boxed boardgame around Christmas 2013. Initially I cannot pay for a map (three kids to feed, you know the drill) but when I launch the kickstarter I hope to be able to pay my artists / map makers from the proceeds. Realistically there is a chance the actual boxed game never gets made so obviously the payment will be negotiable and dependant on that - its primarily a not for profit fan-project initially.

Fictional H.P. Lovecraft's Arkham, Mass. in the USA of the 1930s.

Design Concept:
Standard street maps of the city with building with their reference number on them. I have tried to do the map but it is quite amateurish: My weak effort in powerpoint. (http://bit.ly/147W30f)

I would like it to look a little more professional like the one that comes with Sherlock Holmes consulting detective: SHCD example map (http://boardgamegeek.com/image/251113/sherlock-holmes-consulting-detective) - or better ;) If possible can I have a look at previous work?

Number of maps:
One initially - if the Kickstarter is successful I hope to offer additional maps as stretch goals (Innsmouth, Kingsport, etc...)

300 dpi minimum. Jpg, tiff, or png files
Full color

Remains with cartographer.
Publisher retains right to reproduce the map/s online for free download with the game and for promotional materials. Publisher will negotiate the right for physical copies of the map in a boxed boardgame if/when the situation arises.

I would like to have it done in the next couple of weeks (I would like to release version 2, on the 15th April but realise that is short notice).

Initially nothing I'm afraid, but negotiable when the kickstarter begins.
