First in and all those malleable minds to alter ... mwahahaha.

I chose a battle. It's the only one that meshs CC with fantasy. It also gets away from strictures of land and geography and enters the true realm of the imagination. Nothing is sacred, no boundaries just a complete and total mindblowing opportunity to express! It also deals with the conceptual stuff that us smaller mappers prefer and gets around the dead wood that large maps often sneak in! Music, lights, action ...

Sort of in agreement here. I starting to think large, but now a more small scale battle would suffice.

Welcome to the forth weekly competition held in the foundry in conjunction with The Great Community Map Project.

..........................................Mind Bender

A rather nasty little competition for you this week. :twisted:

I went for a walk round the foundry forums, Drafting room, Main foundry , Beta maps and the Atlas.

On my travels, I stopped of at many interesting places. Can you guess where I went?

Look at the image below. In this image you will see strips of many maps. How many, I will not tell you. The strips have not been resized or altered in any way.
;) But it is up to you to decipher the image and list all of the maps.
Image

List all of the maps you can find. The player with the most maps found will be declared the winner. If multiple entries find all maps, multiple medals (Max of 5) will be awarded.

Get the entries to me (koontz1973) by this time.

Good luck and happy hunting. :D

I voted for country. I'd rather not have an overly complicated map, which seems to be the way 'battle' maps go at the moment. A country gives more scope than a continent but a world is a bit too far. Honestly though, I'm not really bothered over the result of this poll.

Anyway, I best try this competition..

Yea I kinda agree with iAmCaffeine here

I don't really care which wins, battles seem to be overly complicated though so I'd rather not have battle win, but otherwise I really don't care! So I vote continent
rds is awesome!
