Hello Guilders,

The guild is a great place, right? "The mappiest site on the web" as one of my esteemed colleagues is wont to say. But what about giving the Guild a map it deserves? The challenge this month is to Map the Guild!

Whether you want to describe the Guild as a fantasy world (with its mountains of unfinished WIPs, its ocean of the golden compass, its realms of rep or whatever you want), a complex political map with a lot of puzzle intriguees, a modern building's map showing the offices and rooms of some shining and famous members of the Guild or a labyrinthic dungeon where you can find the dreadful Bogie's torture chamber or the feared wells of Arcana - where it is said many spammers died in awful pain, it's up to you fellow cartographers. Let the Guild shine in all its glory on maps!


As always, please include the following in your entry threads:

Title each new thread February 2014 Entry - <your title>

Precede each WIP image with the tag ### Latest WIP ###.

The challenge will end on or around the first of March, and the winner will receive a golden compass, an enviable accolade here at the Guild and a bunch of cookies specially cooked for you by Diamond!

Waitttttttttttt just to clarify about if I win (probably won't but just in case!)

Okay so I'm in the Lite Challenge already, which ends in a couple weeks? If, in some impossible twist of fate, I won the lite challenge... I can still be in this contest?


AND

If I am in this competition, then I cannot enter the next lite challenge?

Great idea, I was thinking about this for some time but I still haven't figured out how to do it.

1-yes
2-you can't enter in a lite challenge if you win a normal challenge.

Have an idea for this, absolutely not convinced I can find the time and don't know if I want another unfinished WIP hanging around my neck :D

Thanks Azelor :) So I can still enter, I just can't win if I win? :P

You do. unfinished WIPs are like BLING... y'know how you see the rap stars with like 80 gold chains around their necks... same concept :P :P :P

Jalyha, you can enter any number of full challenges and lite challenges - as long as you don't win. You can win multiple Lite challenges and still enter any challenge. As soon as you win a full challenge, only then are you no longer allowed to participate in Lite Challenges. If you never win (and we don't want that), you will never be excluded from participation in a challenge.

And to me, badges are the 'bling', if you consider your avatar as the head, the badges beneath it look a lot like gold medallions on your chain.

Ohhhhh that makes sense :)

(And yes, they do look like medallions, lol! :D But if I call the WIPs bling, maybe more people will join!!! ? :) )

No, I'm sure it's a trap and your just going to send us a picture of a cookie by email. :x

HAAAAAAAAAAH ! I'm already drawing this (http://www.cartographersguild.com/current-lite-mapping-challenge/25888-january-february-2014-lite-challenge-town-leak.html#post233923)... what with the streets & alleys that are guildspeople-named. And Establishments to match, particularly if anyone wants self-meaningful stuff along 'their' road or I guess along Main, Aqueduct, Park, and so forth. Of course I started it weeks ago so it won't do for this contest. Hmm - I wonder how *else* I would portray the Guild. Think, think, think...... Guild. Gild. Gilt. Guilt. Gelt. Jelled. Jailed. Gilled. I suppose a map of the best fishing areas would be a Cartographer's Gilled Map. Decorated with gold leaf it might be a Gilt Gilled map. I guess I feel bad enough about that level of pun that I would have Gilt Gilled Guilt. Somebody should make me pay. Which payment would be Gilt Gilled Guilt Gelt.

Naaah, that idea hasn't jelled.

There's something better possible. Hmmmm...
