too many good entries. that vote was a tough one
Something witty and pithy
WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many good maps on this one, and just not enough votes... honestly I could have used like 4 more, hell, I'd vote for all of you if I could, but as it stands, I had to make my choices.
My votes were:
GP--- You got my first vote. straight up a excellent hand drawn nature, good color, good flavor and nice text along with the added information in the map made this my first choice. The bonus content was excellent of course, and you a true workhorse.
5mpig--- Just a great idea, but not only that, deftly and smartly executed. It was nice to look at and just an overall great map.
Jojo--coloring, the unique style of the flora and fauna really turned me on to this map, and.. ya know, I like the way ya tipped it on its side, that is a true mark of genius there also loved the texture of the ocean...
Rav--- Love it, love it, love it. Like the texturing, the ambiance, the coloring .... all of it. This map just made me want to climb into your brain and put that knowledge in my head and do what you do
NK--- Ya know I love handdrawn, and this was a truly excellent handdrawn and colored map that your choice of Aztec Flavor only enhanced and beautified. KUDO'S...
I am decidedly the dumbest admin ever...I voted for 3 instead of 5...I suck, and I am ready for my flogging.

Wow. Just "wow". These are some truly excellent maps!
I am also thrilled with the map turned on its side (Jojo's). I can see myself using that map, along with one of the others, as separate handouts for players and not telling them they are the same area! It'll be great to hear their reactions when they realize it.
I also like some of the well done maps that are not overdone, if you know what I mean? I like maps without city names so that I can provide my own, for example. So my voting went along those lines. I thought the glyphs along the side of Neon's entry were great!
Overall there were some very imaginative entries. I'll be back!
I overvoted last month, so maybe that kinda evens it out...

This is a really nice experience, participating in a challenge like that. I'm sure i'll repeat the experience. By the way, thank you very much to the 2 voters who found my map worthy The competition was very impressive.
Good luck to all
Oh and how do we see who voted for who. It seems implied that we can? (forget it..i just found out )
