Who is buried in Euclid's Tomb?

This map has at least a few triangles ( one big one ), 10-12 Circles, and about a thousand squares ( depending on how loose your definition of square is ).

The basic map is finished, next I need to add some more dungeon dressings ( not to mention his tomb ) and some labels and a scale.

No fair no fair no fair.

*stamps feet*

:P Kidding (sorta)

It looks great, as ever, Bogie. :) (And more complete than mine after 2 weeks :( )

I would think though, there would need to be some sort of reason for someone to build a triangular room in a rectangular dungeon, losing all that space o.o

Then again, I know nothing about dungeouns!! :D

I wish I could steaal your mosaic, though.. mine is giving me ISSUES. :)

This was originally designed as an "Old School TSR/D&D style map made with modern digital techniques".
The beauty of the old D&D maps is that they never made sense, they just were what they were.

By mosaic, do you mean floor tile? I have hundreds of them, what are you looking for?

Oh, i was thinking about doing a tomb of the "Math Mummies".
Looks like you beat me to it though :P

Anyway, that's a very interesting layout and I'm sure it'll look
great. Good competition this month as a result of the half-
challenge last month!

One complaint: I need more squares! ;)

Mosaic = Pattern. And yes, floor tiles, but it's the design in the floor tiles (circle room). You can see my half-finished (okay 1/4 finished) mosaic in my challenge thread... it's slow going, trying to place each tile by hand (except the pink marble, lol) and I was just jealous cause yours looks better already D:

Formost can make anything he wants, there is no restriction. We have even had challenges where everyone has to start with the same shape and make a map using it.

This is looking good, Bogie. I really like that soft glow you've got coming from those wall mount thingies.

Attack of the Blobs? Yeah, I think we need to do a Revenge of the Blobs pretty soon... :D

I had some free time after painting the bedroom so the map is finished. ( Unless I find some big mistake I missed before )

Now you have to look at the map and figure out who is buried in Euclid's Tomb, besides Euclid of course, it is his tomb after all.
