    Default Create a Map in Notepad

    Create a Map in Notepad or some other word processor, using nothing but "standard fonts." You know the ones with recognizable letters.

    Have you ever looked at an e-mail address and said "ye gods, I'm in a corridor filled with monsters?"


    (sorry, this idea made me think of good old ascii NetHack )

    While I do find the idea interesting, I do not think it would make a great challenge due to the probably low number of entrants & the severe technical limitations of the challenge. Maybe saying a map inspired by ASCII maps or art, but not necessarily done that way ... dunno. I just think the results wouldn't necessarily be that pretty.

    If you want to make it more accessible, you could say it has to be a map done in something like ASCIIPaint.

    This reminds me of Kingdom of Kroz ^.^ Only there the monsters were ascii, not the walls...

    Asciipaint is cheating, let's do this in the old way, keyboard + code tags
    Just like this epic battle !

    Code:
         __________________________
        /|  P           P         /|
       / | /\          /\        / |
      /  |/()\________/()\      /  |
     /   ||   [|]  [|]   |     /   |
    /    ||() [][][][] ()|    /    |
    |    ||     ____     |_   |    |
    |   /  []  /    \  []  \  |   /
    |  /_______| || |_______\ |  /
    |  ##########||########## | /
    |__##########||########## |/
               /    \             
               |    |   
    [Come n'fight !]  [gtfo my castle!]
            /               \
          \o_/     •  •  • ¬_o/
           |                 |
          / \               / \
