I'm liking the diversity so far! Since this is an Open Format challenge where you can post whatever kind of map you want - anything goes. Guild challenges have been traditional geared toward maps of fiction, my own specialty, but with such a large and international community, there are many points of view in what type of map each wants to create.
I'd probably never create an alternate earth map, but its great seeing someone else doing so in this challenge. I've seen very few truly historical maps of real places posted here and Hoel's doing just that.
I hope to see some of the regulars from past challenges getting involved as well - but its good to see some new blood at work. I can't wait to see more entries!
