    Default *** January/February 2014 Lite Challenge: Circle, Triangle, Square ***

    Hey everyone! This challenge will be kind of a free form type of thing. Your mission is to create a map that incorporates a circle, a square, and a triangle. The theme and type of map is entirely up to you, but each entry MUST include all three shapes in one form or another. Be creative; they don't even have to be visible as such - you could incorporate them as open space in a park or something.

    Please do remember to title each thread: January/February 2014 Lite Challenge: < your title here >

    Also remember to preface each image you want to show up in the thumbnail scraper with: ### Latest WIP ### (If you don't, your map won't show up for the voters at voting time, which might hurt your chances. )

    The challenge will end on or about the 14th of February, after which we'll have four days of voting. The winner of this month's challenge will receive, appropriately enough, a circular silver compass, demonstrating his or her all-around coolness.

    Or I could be real cheesy and map anything I want and then just stick my Avatar on the map as I often do.

    Sure, you could do that. But remember with these challenges that veracity is often in the eye of the voter...

    I dunno... I might vote for that just for sheer grit

    (Except I'm gonna win this time)

    (Okay probably not)

    (Think I messed up already)

    (GAH!!!)

    (OMG what's up with all these parentheticals...?)

    I kid.

    What about a Terry Pratchett-style flat world, only instead of riding on turtles and pacaderms (spelling?) yours could be floating on a giant man whose eye pokes through the center of a mountain on an... nevermind. (Shut up Jalyha!) (No you) (YOU!) (Fine, both of us!) (Okay!)

    PS: I swear I'm not crazy

    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.

    I would ask if I can enter both main and lite contest with the same map :-) ... only that would give me only ten days or so and I'll probably have trouble with even a full 25-26 days to work :-b...

    So - to force myself to actually dive in - I am starting a sqcirtriarecleangle map that just *happens* to be a game as well. Heck, I'll even throw in a technical compliance with last month's idyllic town. I was looking at Sanborn Fire Insurance maps from 100 or so years ago, and thinking that's a straightforward look I can probably carry off without spraining a brain.

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck. Forget sprains.. if I tried that, my poor little brain would melt >.<
