    Fun stuff, I like it. We could use something like that for a challenge...find a smudge and turn it into a map.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    If you look back far enough, you'll see a map of one of our members (Highlander) has found its way there.


    EDIT: Here it is!

    This post might be of interest here:

    It's about the "Atlas of True Names" which presents a map of the world with entomological place names. For example London is replaced with "Hillfort", Dublin with "Black Pool" and Manchester with "Bear Guard Home". Makes me a little less embarrassed by my unimaginative place names.
