June's Challenge, Build Something for the CWBP (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=2176) has come to an end, so it is time to vote! We were a little late getting this out, but the voting is still open for 5 days.

Again, we will use the thumbnailer, courtesy of RedRobes, to view the entries this month:

List of Entries by Thumbnail (http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/Temp/CG/ChallengeTN/Challengers_Jun08.htm)

Remember the rules, and the guidelines:


You must create a map of a settlement or structure that fits thematically and geographically with the work already done on the project. It does not have to follow any style used in the project. You are welcome to map in whatever style suits you and that you are most comfortable with.

But……..You have to map one of the following things:

A walled town or city
An area of wilds approximately 20 miles across
A trading town next to a river
A coastal port
A stretch of road approximately 50 miles long
A ruin
An underground lair or mine

A couple of housekeeping items on the entries:
- Sigurd's entry was withdrawn from the challenge, so is not available in the voting options, even though it shoes up in the thumbnails.
- Meleeguy never got an image posted up (hence the lack of a thumbnail), so That entry is not in the list, either.

Good luck to all the entrants! The real winner of this one, however, is the CWBP!

I assume we still have not started the vote for multiple thing eh? Damn... this is going to be SOOOOOO hard to pick just one.

You can blame RobA. I was going to use muliselect, but he beat me to it. ;)

It would have made it far easier to vote, but I suspect we'd wind up with a huge tie.

I cast my vote for rlucci's Fort Lost. It's a very useable map, clear, and attractive. It's also a site I'd very much like to explore, right down to the fight with a sea dragon in a half-submerged cavern.

What do you guys think of a trial multiselect this month? We post the SAME poll, with multiselect on, and "evaluate" the results...the multiselect poll won't count this month, but if everyone votes honestly on it, we can see whether or not it would be a viable future option.

Also, I'm glad RobA put the voting up...I am JUST NOW logging on to do it...th elast three days have been kinda hectic, and while I've been able to log on for short periods to look for any fires to put out, I haven't had time until just now to do the voting...and lo and behold its done!!! YAY!!!

Yep, a trial multi-select poll sounds like a great idea.

I was torn between rlucci and gamerprinter because of the nice use of 3d...in the end I chose gamerprinter because he went above and beyond the 3d concept...terribly torn though...I would vote for both if it were multiselect.

I like the idea of the trial multiselect.

Once again, lack of time on my part means no entry for me this month.

Now that being said, I did really like the idea of this month challenge with one exception, next time decide upon only ONE subject of map (may it be city, dungeon, area,...).
Cause it's really hard to make a choice.
Which criteria would I go for...
In the end I decide to take a city that I would like to use in my next few games session, so I chose Torq.

Also to note that my players may soon see their doom inside rlucci castle hi hi hi hi hi....

Nice work to U all,
Alu.

Given the choice, I prefer multi-select voting.

Because there are excellent examples in multiple styles - I would hate to see one style dominate, because it takes all the wins.

I voted for Ravs, all the way. The church in the top right of his monastery floorplan has a very authentic look. A style I'd certainly try, if I had access to the proper resources to compare for authenticity.

Good job, everyone! :D

I'd prefer multiselect voting too, but with a restriction on 3 choices at the very most.

PS Thanks GP!

First my apologies for being a no show. I put in about 10 hours (lots of tools experimentation) on the Castle but didn't get something that I wanted to present yet. I'll continue this map for the project, and try to resist entering anymore contests until well along if not complete. I should have a WiP up within a few weeks at most.

Voting this month was very difficult - my top 3 are rlucci, ravells, and torq. Redrobes and gamesprinter's entries are also very noteworthy.

My voting method is to 'count' the the number of 'wows and hmms' from a map, factored against the entry criteria. Plus or minus subjective bias, and there we are. :)

Unfortunately I did not have time to provide an entry this month, I know how much you guys missed me and hated to disappoint you, but the plate was rather full for most of this month.

A tough decision this month, but rlucci caught my ballot. I just dug the crispness of the map, the placement of the levels was well done and it just won me over in the end. Great maps everyone, Rav and Torq would have been my other multiselect choices...

rlucci was my choice too....absolute Bryce magic!

Well, Ravells, I guess I returned the favor, because I voted for yours. You put that dovecote in toward the end and that sealed it for me. I'm a sucker for dovecotes and gristmills. Go figure.

even though all the entries were amazing, i had to go with neon for a couple of reasons. first, he has entered every challenge i can think of and he's a great guy to boot. i like the underdog. keep it up dude. the map is great! simple and elegant. just the thing i like in a map.
all the others were great. one of these days i'm going to have to enter again when i get my computer back...

Thanks delgon! It was a fun challenge, but I don't think I'll be doing another map like that in a hurry - it was far more work than I thought it would be!

Well done Ravs - that was an excellent map. I voted for it too actually. It looked like it came right out of a brochure of a real place.

Looks like we have a winner! Congrats Ravells for a fantastic map post and a good win too! Nice work!!!
