First my apologies for being a no show. I put in about 10 hours (lots of tools experimentation) on the Castle but didn't get something that I wanted to present yet. I'll continue this map for the project, and try to resist entering anymore contests until well along if not complete. I should have a WiP up within a few weeks at most.
Voting this month was very difficult - my top 3 are rlucci, ravells, and torq. Redrobes and gamesprinter's entries are also very noteworthy.
My voting method is to 'count' the the number of 'wows and hmms' from a map, factored against the entry criteria. Plus or minus subjective bias, and there we are.
