    Default *** March/April Lite Challenge: Dwarf Fortress ***

    This month's lite challenge is to map a dwarven fortress. This can be as small as a staging post on a road down into the dark places of the world or as large as a full blown dwarven citadel. This challenge is light on rules and restrictions, as long as your map describes a home fit for a dwarf.

    Remember to precede any image attachment with the tag:

    ### Latest WIP ###

    so that the thumbnail scraper will pick up your entry.

    The challenge will end on the 15th of April. Good luck and happy mining!

    Are bonus points awarded for using ASCII key coded 'art'?
    (If you don't get its relation to Dwarf Fortress, and consider yourself a geek, then hang your head in shame.)

    I was wondering how long it would be before someone made that reference and I am duly impressed

    On that note - if you value your free time do not google dwarf fortress. You have been warned...

    It should be called the "Time Sucking Void"

    Make that "Time Sucking Void with Poor User Interface".

    Hopefully I'll have time to actually attempt something for this challenge, but more than likely I'll get side tracked on making a newer version of DF with a design that started in my HCI class.

    You know, I'm very tempted on this one. There is a technique with Terragen I've been eager to experiment with in combination with the hand-drawn simulation I was trying to achieve with one of my previous challenge maps, and this just might give me the opportunity to do so. It is, however, going to depend on how much time I have available.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.
