Nicely done Geamon...
Here's is my last edit for the one page dungeon comp and what I've submitted to Alex. Personally, I'm proud of the progress I've made on encounter styled maps and really enjoyed this project regardless if I win anything. I wish good luck to RE and Gamerprinter on their submissions and hope to see all three of our names on the list of winners. If you would like a non labeled version or an edit please ask.
Nicely done Geamon...

Yeah, nice stuff.

nice job, good luck with your entry.
Personally, from viewing the blog links of most of the other maps on the OPDC page, most everyone else is creating tiny inset maps on a wall of text covering most of the page. The best maps by far will be mine, Geamon and Reckless Enthusiasm - at least among those that I can see, since about a third of the maps posted don't have links, so I can't really see what their entries look like. The main good thing is that there will be at least 21 winners and there are currently just short of 40 map entries in total, which means half the maps are winners already. And by the links posted, some of those entries aren't even following all the contest's criteria, so several of those entries will not qualify for a win at all.
I think the Guild is well represented this time, primarily for the lack entries, and the lack of following the contest rules. I think the CG members entries will have all the top positions in this year's contest.
This is looking great! Very filled and lots of interesting things to look at! I agree that we'll no doubt be standing side-by-side in the winner's circle.
It is kind of nice that they have so many winners, but I also kind of wish they had an absolute #1, #2, and #3. It seems like people deserve a numerical ranking in any such contest.

Thanks for the compliments guys!
@TheRedEpic : Really appreciate it, especially coming from you. I think your encounter maps are some of the most well done maps I've seen.
They have an 'absolute' number 1, everybody else is number 2, unless you don't win, then you might get an honorable mention and a runner up. The number 1 is Best Cartography...
Geamon this is really excellent. I think it might be the best you have done to date. Awesome job, I hope you win.
