    Wow that is quite a prize list. Hmmm... Maybe I'll join this months challenge after all

    Post You better!

    You better get involved, because 4 participants (so far) is so few that its almost an insult to RPGTonight the sponsor of the challenge.

    And while its been pointed out that my entry is kind of above-and-beyond, so a tough entry to compete against, I can't win all three prizes and there are three great prizes - that can't be an excuse not to participate.

    We had plenty of participants last month and there was no material prize, so I really don't get why there are so few participants this month.

    Come on guys, get off your duffs and get to mapping, there's prizes to take here and more than one winner to take it. What's stopping you?

    Lack of good ideas...at least for me.

    Post Ideas then!

    OK, ideas then - I don't have to worry, my entry is complete, so I wouldn't be using any of these, but here goes...

    1. Create a linear dungeon map, have the PCs chase a wounded BBEG that lost the encounter with the PCs and is trying to escape to fight them in the future, but somehow botched his escape plan so he's working on plan B, which is to get to some teleportation chamber on foot. If the PCs can catch him, they can end his chance to ever come back. Create a dungeon map from point A to point B.

    2. Zombie invasion - some eldritch device which is causing the zombification can be shut off to end it altogether. The PCs need to get to that device and shut it off, which may cause all the zombies to fall down dead when this happens, meanwhile a multitude of zombies are trying to eat the players to prevent their demise. This could be a street map, make it linear it works.

    3. PCs are escaped prisoners from a prison camp behind enemy lines. The underground has a safehouse located in a hidden forest location near the front lines. The PCs have to negotiate their way around military patrols, a fence or wall that contains the area behind enemy lines. The PCs must try to get there and not be caught by SS patrols, road blocks, etc.

    4. The PCs are reporters trying to discover the true identity and secret hideout for their local superhero (superman, batman, the Tick, whatever).

    5. The PCs are aboard a starship. There captain and senior crew have been captured by the Xenomorphs who've attached their ship to the PCs ship hull. A secondary bridge must be accessed to take control of the ship back, and arrange the release of the senior crew. However, main corridors are blocked so the PCs must crawl through ventilation system and maintenance corridors to reach the secondary bridge, meanwhile Xenomorph hunters are behind the PCs trying to stop them.

    I could come up with a dozen more, but this should be enough of a start to generate your own ideas.

    Let's see some competition here!

    My basic idea contribution would be to just draw out a long and winding road, slap some trees around it, and set up some road blocks for orcs or goblins to jump out of. The challenge is quite challenging and I think most people are trying too hard to come up with some unique idea. Keep it simple, road and trees. Make it long instead of square. Don't let genre get in the way, if your road is gray then some yellow paint down the middle turns it into a modern street If it's brown then it could be any genre.

    Well the challenge is intended to be used in a Virtual Terrain application, in this case, RPGTonight for the purpose of a chase scene in an RPG game - so how could that not be appropriate???

    Unless you mean the prizes - and you must be pulling our legs with that comment!
