    Wow. Skimming through the posts, I thought the parchment version was a winner waiting to happen, the rest of it adds so much it's going to be tough for others to keep up with you in the voting

    Wip

    Now it's my turn to say wow: Wow!
    Your feedback stunned me.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions about the text (escpiecally to Cash & blue - sounds like an 80's actioner ). I declare the following WIP
    as to be a 95% progress version putting aside the last 5% for any spontaneous ideas there may come or mistakes you might find.

    As the new stuff is not as easy to spot as it used to be, here are the changes:
    • corrected letter
    • added ink stains
    • added ink texture to letter
    • added seal
    • captions corrected (loggia)
    • edited blueprint info (upper left corner)
    • element's positions adjusted



    I appreciate any comments.

    Regards,
    >Moe

    You know what. I was going to put together a map for this challenge, but I'd rather just see you win this one.

    @vman and mrB .... put something together anyway - its not about winning - its about challenging yourself to do something in a short time - and often out of your comfort zone. And every challenge will make you better at mapping.

    Please continue on your stuff, if you want asides the challenge.
    I don't really feel good about my work holding you guys off from doing your work.
    I am sure it feels great to know, that one's own work is inspiring - but this feels anything but great.

    As tilt said, it is all about practice. I've learned so much during this challenge and a lot of it didn't end up in the final version, but ended up in my
    personal head library ;-)

    Best wishes,
    >Moe

    Oh, dont worry, you're not holding me off. I have more on my plate right now than I need anyways so I really dont have the time to do another challenge map quite yet.

    Im not discouraged or anything like that. Though your map does garner some envy from me
