Hey everyone! This challenge will be kind of a free form type of thing. Your mission is to create a map that incorporates a circle, a square, and a triangle. The theme and type of map is entirely up to you, but each entry MUST include all three shapes in one form or another. Be creative; they don't even have to be visible as such - you could incorporate them as open space in a park or something.

Please do remember to title each thread: January/February 2014 Lite Challenge: < your title here >

Also remember to preface each image you want to show up in the thumbnail scraper with: ### Latest WIP ### (If you don't, your map won't show up for the voters at voting time, which might hurt your chances. :D )

The challenge will end on or about the 14th of February, after which we'll have four days of voting. The winner of this month's challenge will receive, appropriately enough, a circular silver compass, demonstrating his or her all-around coolness.

That's punny :P


's a very broad challenge, isn't it? Maybe I can finish something this time! :)

Or I could be real cheesy and map anything I want and then just stick my Avatar on the map as I often do. :D:P;)

Sure, you could do that. But remember with these challenges that veracity is often in the eye of the voter...

:D

I dunno... I might vote for that just for sheer grit :P

(Except I'm gonna win this time)

(Okay probably not)

(Think I messed up already)

(GAH!!!)

(OMG what's up with all these parentheticals...?)

I kid.

What about a Terry Pratchett-style flat world, only instead of riding on turtles and pacaderms (spelling?) yours could be floating on a giant man whose eye pokes through the center of a mountain on an... nevermind. (Shut up Jalyha!) (No you) (YOU!) (Fine, both of us!) (Okay!)

PS: I swear I'm not crazy :)

I would ask if I can enter both main and lite contest with the same map :-) ... only that would give me only ten days or so and I'll probably have trouble with even a full 25-26 days to work :-b...

So - to force myself to actually dive in - I am starting a sqcirtriarecleangle map that just *happens* to be a game as well. Heck, I'll even throw in a technical compliance with last month's idyllic town. I was looking at Sanborn Fire Insurance maps from 100 or so years ago, and thinking that's a straightforward look I can probably carry off without spraining a brain.

I sincerely wish you the best of luck. Forget sprains.. if I tried that, my poor little brain would melt >.<

Wow! You are crazier than I am! ( and that's not easy )

Cheese.

I'm not *really* crazy. I usually keep my conversations with myself *inside* my head. I only actually talk to myself about once a week. Crazy people say this stuff out loud all the time. :P

But yeah... :D

Just a reminder - there's a bit less than a week left in the challenge. Threads will be locked down Friday evening, probably around 9PM or so Pacific time.

I'll see if I can manage to draw a map during our meeting this evening. Just for the sake of mapping something again, after I looked at the other entries I don't have the slightest chance to even come close to winning... :D

As I saw that you could do so on another entry thread, and as my name was just... really... in order to get something on the topic..

Could you change my entry thread to "Jannah Manor"? Since that's what the map turned into... ?


If not too much trouble, please. :o
