Something's wrong with the thumbnails - Xyll's 'roof top run' is returning a texture rather than the entry...may need to suspend this until the thumbnails are sorted out.

It look's like he was missing the "### Latest WIP ###" - I added it to the post above it, but Arcana or RedRobes will need to re-run the thumb-nailer.

Probably should have had everyone who did 'tiles' create a contact sheet with all of the images.

Soo many good entries and ideas. Some I would have loved to have seen fully realized (I'm looking at you here Ravs ;)).

My vote went to Mystic Magelan for his wonderful 'Winter Wonder Land Chase', and to CBDroege's Escape from the afflicted (if it has zombies, I am in ;) LEFT 4 DEAD 4 EVER!)

Thank you everyone for all of the effort you invested in this. I learn as much from your work as I do from my own.

I wanted to vote for some new blood so no offense Steel & GP ;) Yours clearly kick a lot of butt. I went with MM mainly for his sled ride and with Drahyden mainly for size. Xyll & CBD were very much in the running, Xyll's is very pretty to look at but kinda small and CBD was neck and neck with Drah so I went with size. Congrats to all who finished.

Ummm sorry....I got obsessed by this new city tutorial which I'm still struggling with and on top of that I'm now trying my hand at making mapping fonts so something had to give.

Sorry I didnt notice this one before. The sticky thread is here:

http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=2066

and says that you can control which image you wanted by putting in the latest wip tag. You should put one in on the last image that you want used as the thumb. Whats happened in your post is that steel general has edited your thread and I guess has put one in on the last wip point. In any case, everyone should really look through the threads of all entries and not go by the thumbnail.

Very recently the generation of the thumbnails have moved from me pushing buttons to arcana or any CL who knows the page of buttons to push and get them generated right now. I am hoping that in the very near future that Arcana will make the thumbs self generate periodically like every few hours or so and then they will always be up to date. But you must put your wip tag in at the image you want or else it will use the last one in the thread.

Congrats, MysticMagellan! New member who can proudly wear a Challenge Winner Badge - good job, nice work on the map, especially the sled portions of the map (my favorite part).

Looks like I got second place! Though that normally means nothing, this month I get to pick some prizes, yay!

Good job everyone, see you in the next challenge.

Well done Mystic - I really loved that map and thought the snow was just top. Not bad to join and win ! And GP too your map was another devastating entry deserving a podium position. Well done to everybody as always.

Thanks everyone. I've browsed through a lot of maps from people and I'm surprised I did so well. It's really boosted my confidence in my ability to create maps and I can't wait to design a few more.

Go to http://www.rpgtonight.com/

Go to the contact page, and send an email. Mention you are the third place winner, and ask for a specific prize. You will need to review the list of prizes in that thread, pick a prize you want worth "1 point".

And wait for a response.

Thanks everyone for all the fine entries. I have heard from all the winners, and will be emailing everyone shortly. Congratulations all!

PS: Although we only stipulate that we be allowed to place the *winning* entries in our on site collection for use by our players, we would be honored if any of the non winners allowed us to do the same. If so, you will be identified by name (or handle) as the artist next to your map thumbnail on the selection screen. Your email address can also be displayed.
