After seeing all the maps here, my 9 year old son wanted me to post his map. Well, here it is! (It's a start I guess :))

Haha, not bad for a 9 year old. My 12 year old brother keeps saying he wants to join.

That's one mean-lookin kobold (shudder)...very scary. We need more dungeons around here so post up any that he does.

You would not believe the smile on my son's face after he read all the comments. :D Thank you guys for the support! I gave him some rep (Snickers Candy Bar) for the accomplishment and a new DND 4E Dungeon Masters Guide. He is asking what a word means about every 5 or 6 minutes. lol Thanks again!

Thoughts on a Kid's Mapping Challenge...

It would have to be "announced" to various teacher and children associated sites, given some time before the challenge start and the same month requirement, very little parameters, and perhaps age groups with some material mapping prize or other appropriate (inexpensive) prizes.

Might give good PR for the guild and improved exposure!

Thoughts?

Sounds like a plan...

I fear plans...

But we must face our fears...

Therefore I say we do it...

Whenever I teach a class on stained glass I always tell the people that learning how to do it is one thing but that they will learn even more when they try to explain it to someone else. So I would say let's try it out on our own pumpkins first and see what we can teach them. If they like it then we could go from there.

This sounds like lots of fun.

I know my youngest son (5 years old) is ALWAYS drawing maps, but they don;t look like any map you or I might recognize ;)

That map rocks! Your son should be proud of himself. It sounds like you have a budding cartographer/gamer in the making. ;)

Very cool map. Has all the basics and a special charm!

Thats a very big Kobold! It must be very very dangerous. I like the gold pile too.


Looks great! Lets see another.

How about one with 3 rooms?

Maybe a Dragon or a Bugbear?

An excellent map indeed. I'm glad you posted it. It's certainly clearer than some sketches I get sent by (unnamed!) clients!

And oh how I wish we could spend rep on Snickers bars.... Though that might give RobA and Ascension heart failure.

I'd be spending all of my rep on tortellini and dancing girls :)

Well that does raise the important question of the conversion rate between snickers and dancing girls... but then this is a family thread :)

Ya, I new you could ask girls to dance but how do you get them to "tortellini"?

Enjoy it while you can. I can't get my son interested in anything that doesn't involve his girlfriend, sports or World of Warcraft. If I could just get him to include academics in there, I would call it a win and move on, but creativity would be a big plus.
