    This is a solid idea for a challenge.

    Totally second this one. I'm a fan of the original works, of course, but this one was just classic. Fair Verona Beach...

    You gotta like an author who talks about, "carrion men, groaning for burial," "As if increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on." Wouldn't know how to map these, but they're fun to pop into a conversation.

    I'm not a fan of Shakespeare at all, so I'm actually going to have to say nay on this one.

    I really like doing maps that I can turn around and use in a game, so I am not a fan of doing maps that are too restrictive. And while I do love the poetry of Shakespeare, it does not exactly inspire me to go out and make maps. I would rather skip Shakespeare and go to the source if I was going to make up a faerie grove, and I doubt I will ever have need or want to map Verona.

    A rose, by any other name, would still point north.

    And they say the bard doesn't inspire cartographers.
