    Wip September-October Mapping Challenge - New New York

    I've decided that I'm going to try do some "transformations" of New York. I've got a few ideas in mind:

    a) A future military occupation takes a section of Manhattan or isolates it by land and across bridges from the area around it. Altering the layout and redirecting certain roads or bridges.

    b) Possibly build a HUD/Handheld Digimap.

    c) The US has been crushed by it's own financial issues and plummeted from the world stage. (No I'm not anti-US or a communist or anything like that... just making a speculation) This has left New York in the distant future as a micro-political warzone (Think Escape from LA...New York Style) but I'm not sure if I want it to be "Post Apocalypse" (i.e. the world has played catch the nuke) or "Result of Abandonment" (the rest of the world is just fine... the US however has dived and Canada has suddenly had to create a nice big military to keep the rabble from heading north from the USA). This would result in a city filled with Tribes/Gang/Power-Cliques... and mapping that. Probably futuristic style as well.

    Any feedback from the people would be appreciated.

    After trawling through a few others, I think I've hit an idea...

    A New York Board-Game concept...
    Something Political probably... maybe something more like Diplomacy/Risk... Actually I am brainstorming as I type... so I'm now seeing the Tribal-Warfare as a game concept... ooooooh. I'm feeling all inspired and much awesomeness is about to happen I think...

    Thats better !

    It sounds like Escape from New York. There was a film before the LA one for new york. See here. It also had all but one bridge down and that was heavily guarded and the island was also a wreck but in this instance a huge penal colony.

    If I had better creativity and art skillz I would so have loved to have done New York in the style of Judge Dredds Mega City One and the accompanying board game. Have you guys seen that ? Its a bit of a collectors piece now but if you can ever get a copy then its worth it. There's no board game that is 10% as good as that one. If anyone has played it then shout cos I gotta compare strategy. I thought about and dismissed that idea right away but it would have been fun to do.
