    Default Mapping it All Wrong

    Basically, make the best bad you can. Break all the 'rules', with river violations galore, climatic impossibility, inconsistent scales and people who wear hats on their feet. Rivers can flow upstream (without any of that silly tidal boare nonsense), rain shadows occuring on the winward sides of mountains... Just make it all so terribly wrong, and the wronger it is, the better the outcome! Turn all the conventions and rules on their heads, and make the best awful map ever!

    >evil chuckle<

    Let me know what you reckon!
    Regards,

    It might be quite instructive and it will be fun trying to spot all the errors. A Yay from me!

    Reminds me of playing the absolute worst notes in music just to try and expand the paradigms. An interesting idea I think.

    There should be an addendum -

    The point of this is not to make a bad looking map, but to make a logically impossible map.

    I feel like a map contest like this is going to be flooded with MS paint and crayon scribblings, and the truly clever subversions of 'proper' mapmaking techniques will be lost among the clutter.

    That is a good idea, to be honest
