    Default *** June/July Lite Challenge: Free for all ***

    This month it's a free for all in the lite challenge! (and apologies for the late launch of this month's lite challenge. Guilty as charged)

    The challenge is to take this silhouette and turn it into any kind of map you can imagine:

    *** June/July Lite Challenge: Free for all ***-junjul.jpg

    It can be an island chain, the outline of an large structure of dark matter holding together a stream of galaxies or a region of poisinous fungus suffusing a dungeon cavern. Just make sure that the shape is clearly visible and recognisable in the map, and that it represents a key element of the map.

    Each entry should be posted in a new thread, with June/July Challenge Entry: <name of entry> in the title. Each work in progress thumbnail should be preceded by ### Latest WIP ### to make sure the thumbs are picked up by the thumbnailer script.

    The contest will end on the 15th of July.

    The winner will receive honour, glory, a silver lite challenge medal and a $40 Profantasy gift voucher.

    Can we edit it a bit but keep the same overall silhouette?

    Yep, as ever ultimately the agreement with the rules is judged by the voters, but if I can't see the shape as a major element in your map it might get disqualified. Obviously there's a grey area on how much modification you can get away with.

    I am contemplating entering, even though it's totally not my style. *shrug* We shall see what this week brings.

    Lots of entries this month. The contest will close on the 15th at midday EST (or thereabouts). Make sure you get your final edits done on time!

    Wow, there are a lot of entries...what's the math on the number of votes we get again?

    Yes, there will be three votes each for this one.
