    Post *** June Challenge - Mapping the Hex***

    THE CHALLENGE

    Hi folks, this month we'll be doing a followup on last month's challenge. Whereas last month's challenge was to create an artistic hexmap with keyed points of interest, this month's challenge is to map one of the keyed points of interest featured in one of two winning entries from last month: Carbus's Pritior or mariuccij's An Isolated Valley (see the thumbs below). The style of map will vary based on the nature of the point of interest. It could be a battle map of a monster lair, a map of a lost dungeon or a map of a Elven forest city. There are quite a few possibilities to choose from. It may be that more than one person wants to map the same point of interest. That is perfectly fine. Each entry must contain each of the following:

    1) A title (which should be the name of the point of interest);
    2) The hex number of the map in which the point of interest is found;

    In keeping with the hex-map mechanic, it is also suggested to include some keyed information about the point of interest (e.g. a description of the town, or a history of the dungeon), but this is strictly optional. EDIT: to clarify, this month's challenge need not be a hex map (though it may be if anyone decides to make one).

    Title each new thread May 2013 Entry - <your title>

    Precede each WIP image with the tag ### Latest WIP ###.

    The challenge will end on or around the 30th of June, and the winner will receive a golden compass, and the envy of your peers.

    do the maps have to be in a hex style or can they be 'normal' maps?

    You don't need to do a hex map
