    Well then. I'll submit my entries once I find an SD card scanner. The only camera I have on hand for use anytime at all is my Nintendo 3DS, of which the picture quality is... in a word, horrible. Though I am trying to find some sort of scanner for my maps, but I'm not having much luck.

    Well, if you have to settle for a phone pic or digital camera be sure to go outside and get some really good lighting. It'll make it a lot better.

    Try your local Library, Kinkos, or Staples. They should all be able to scan for you.

    Well, I've done it with a cellphone. The pictures turned out great. And so far, I'm the only one who's entered this challenge.

    Nah, it's fine man. There's more than just me here so I don't expect to have challenges tailored towards me.

    To be honest, I find it hard to get inspiration for most of the challenges - hence my only ever attempting to enter once. Well... that and I am too slow and never have time.

    I'm hoping for another "map a castle" challenge to come up some day as I still want to have a go at doing the idea I had for that one.

    NO!! The horror... the horror... the sheer level of bribery... How could you?! The corruption! How scarred the innocents are, bribed and forced to stay in this.... this... monstrosity!!

    Ahem... sorry about that. Sometimes I get carried away when I'm in a dramatic mood.

    Hehe, it comes from being an rpg'er most likely.

    Ok, folks, it's been a short challenge this round but we are already over due to lock this down. I may do it tonight if I don't get caught up with other things here at home. If not tomorrow for sure.

    If you have some last minute changes to make please get on it.
