    What about mapping a subject of Medieval Christianity, like Earthly Paradise, Purgatory, or Hell (all of which were supposed to be on or in the earth at undiscovered locations)?

    At the end of the day the decision of what counts as a myth is up to the voters. If you can convince them that what you have mapped illustrates a myth - however you choose to define that term - then you should be fine. If instead you map something and people decide that it is not a map of a myth then you'll lose votes. I'd suggest that you make sure that your map makes the case well. In my own opinion, the mythical locations of purgatory on earth would certainly count, but my vote is only one vote.

    The rules allow us to disqualify a map if it does not fit the challenge parameters but I don't think that has ever happened. Instead the votes usually enforce the rules pretty well.

    Obviously, I haven't been around as much the last couple weeks

    I want to enter this but I'm pretty slammed for time right now. I am brainstorming what I will do if I get to it though. Hopefully, I will.

    @Midgardsormr: I thought that might get your attention

    @Jaxilon: Sorry to hear that. Hope it lightens up enough for you to get an entry in.

    Hey Torstan, I was just curious when voting starts for this. I had originally assumed on the 10th, but after re-reading your post here, it sounds like the 15th. Just curious, since if it's the 15th, I have time to do more work on it
