January Challenge: Create a Map for Print!
Well this my first time in posting a Challenge, as well as sponsoring one! For those who don't know, I own and operate Gamer Printshop specializing in printing RPG maps in full color large format prints that are laminated and shipped worldwide. I make maps too, of course! ;)
This month we want you to design a map that is fitting to hang on your wall, or grace the gaming table with. I will print in full color the full size map of the Winning Entry, laminated and shipped to their address, worldwide.
The Winner will receive their map printed and included in the Cartographers' Guild section of my Ecommerce site for sales to the public. $2.00 from each purchase will be donated to the Guild.
The theme is Create a Map for your RPG campaign or fantasy novel - create a map that best fits your needs! Anything goes, this is a FREE FOR ALL theme. Do you need a city map, a regional map, and encounter map for your next gaming session? Anything qualifies.
Post a "placeholder" map to show WIP progress if you can.
The minimum criteria for the final map is at least a 100 ppi JPG sized at 24 inches by 36 inches (at least 2400 x 3600 pixels). This map is intended for print, so it has to be big. Maps are not limited to 100 ppi, however, I will accept maps up to 300 ppi, but this is not a requirement.
To make this challenge more special than one with a Prize, we hope to get many participants. Because I am the sponsor, I cannot participate.
Good Luck, everyone! I hope you're the winner, so I can print you a map!
PS: once a winner is chosen, I will contact them and make arrangements to obtain the file for printing purposes. I will respond to any questions that you may have in this thread.
I could amend the map criteria...
Since its still early, I could amend the map criteria to 18 x 24 (1800 x 2400) but I really don't want to get smaller than this - lets get some more responses to this for a final consideration.
