    Wip Jan-Feb 2014 Lite Challenge: Euclid's Tomb

    Who is buried in Euclid's Tomb?

    This map has at least a few triangles ( one big one ), 10-12 Circles, and about a thousand squares ( depending on how loose your definition of square is ).

    The basic map is finished, next I need to add some more dungeon dressings ( not to mention his tomb ) and some labels and a scale.

    No fair no fair no fair.

    *stamps feet*

    Kidding (sorta)

    It looks great, as ever, Bogie. (And more complete than mine after 2 weeks )

    I would think though, there would need to be some sort of reason for someone to build a triangular room in a rectangular dungeon, losing all that space o.o

    Then again, I know nothing about dungeouns!!

    I wish I could steaal your mosaic, though.. mine is giving me ISSUES.

    This was originally designed as an "Old School TSR/D&D style map made with modern digital techniques".
    The beauty of the old D&D maps is that they never made sense, they just were what they were.

    By mosaic, do you mean floor tile? I have hundreds of them, what are you looking for?

    Oh, i was thinking about doing a tomb of the "Math Mummies".
    Looks like you beat me to it though

    Anyway, that's a very interesting layout and I'm sure it'll look
    great. Good competition this month as a result of the half-
    challenge last month!

    One complaint: I need more squares!
    The best maps are the ones we like the most after looking at the longest.

    Mosaic = Pattern. And yes, floor tiles, but it's the design in the floor tiles (circle room). You can see my half-finished (okay 1/4 finished) mosaic in my challenge thread... it's slow going, trying to place each tile by hand (except the pink marble, lol) and I was just jealous cause yours looks better already D:

    Formost can make anything he wants, there is no restriction. We have even had challenges where everyone has to start with the same shape and make a map using it.

    This is looking good, Bogie. I really like that soft glow you've got coming from those wall mount thingies.

    Attack of the Blobs? Yeah, I think we need to do a Revenge of the Blobs pretty soon...

    I had some free time after painting the bedroom so the map is finished. ( Unless I find some big mistake I missed before )

    Now you have to look at the map and figure out who is buried in Euclid's Tomb, besides Euclid of course, it is his tomb after all.
