    Great job all. I actually found it quite hard to choose my two favourites as there were a couple I liked, trying to balance creativity with technique and style. As my first challenge entry I have to say I found it a blast and I'm looking forward to the next one already

    My main vote went to Bogie's Bridge of Tears Prison. Love the level of detail presented.

    Watsland would have been my number my selectionsone pick, but all it needed was a discription in each of the specific diagrams on the right to finish it up. Thanks for the great entries. It was hard to pick my selections.

    Another tough call this Month. I wanted to vote for 4: Detention Centre 417 by LonewandererD, The Dark by lostatsea, Prison Planet by Sapiento and The Devil's Cauldron by Yospeck. I ended up going with Centre 417 and Prison Planet. But good job everyone.

    Cheers,

    As always, quite difficult to judge... Congrats to all for applying the challenge, I wish I could have myself...

    My 2 choices:
    1/ SuperMax Seven by Diamond: very detailed, neat realization, ready to use, and I like the simple and efficient style
    2/ The Dark by lostatsea: clear and ready to use sci-fi style

    My would be choices / special mentions:
    Detention Centre 417 by LonewandererD: nice details (escapees and others), but lack of readibility inside the camp itself.
    The Devil's Cauldron by Yospeck: nice style and feeling, but no map key or indications except some drown in the text, would be my first otherwise.
    Brbridge of Tears Prison...There is no return. by Bogie: nice continuing of last challenge, but no map key or indications.
    Sci-Fi Ancient Prison Ship by Fury: style very interesting depicting a grim sci-fi mood, but lack readibility, I spent some time on it but still don't understand the place.

    Thanks for the mention The "map" isn't supposed to be a map in the traditional sense, which is why there are no indicators because quite simply I felt it would just clog up the image and detract from the overall feel (ie. it's a page from a n ancient book as opposed to reference material). Also, it's a fairly simple map so really didn't feel there was anything that would need highlighting that couldn't be taken from the image itself, the text was fluff/lore there to support it. Whilst I could have thrown a compass rose, scale meter and notes onto it, I think it would have just looked like a standard "Tabletop Iso Map", which isn't what I was aiming for at all.

    Tough choice this month. Eventually plumped for Ttaliel but only just. Congrats all round for all submitters.
