Actually, worlds, continents or countries aren't any different from each other if it's a fantasy map, isn't it? This wasn't what I was expecting for maps under the Fantasy category, but thought it included stuff like 8 Thoughts, Patch Wars, Madness, and many other creative ideas like those. I'm disappointed to find that none of the options in the poll allow for such things...

I would've hoped that a country or continent allows for expansion into these kinds of maps. Alternatively, would it not be an idea to have a poll for a geographic map or non-geographic? So Midgard, Midkemdil etc. would count as geographic and 8 Thoughts, Madness etc. wouldn't.

Good point, this poll is misleading! :D

How would you be able to tell a continent from a country in a fantasy situation? :-s

I voted for the world, simply because we are all from different countries.

Continents are cool. We don't need another space shot of a world where a continent can be a single region. I want mountains and rivers.

I voted for a world, but I'd be happy with all of these options.

But no city option? No cosmos? =)

So, as an example from D&D:

World: Oerth -

City: Sigil -

Cosmos: The Planes -

(Yes, I know we won't be able to use copyrighted material. This is just an example. (= )

I voted for World, because I feel that in a situation like this where we are going for a fantasy map, I would much rather see some kind of 'fantasy world' rather than a battle or continent or country. That's why people should vote World!

anamainiacks, this poll is for scope, what you are after is the next one which will deal with theme. The three maps you talk about, I would very easily put into the battles realm. It will be up to the map maker[s] to come up with the final idea[s] based on the results of the polls. Not to worry, all aspects are covered. But because of the second polls results with size, some options have been closed. Again, it will also depend on the results of this poll on how it goes next.

Plenty of polls to come. But as I said to anamainiacks, those come in the battles realm.

Cosmos, we already have space maps, another one would be very similar, hence hte reason to exclude it from this weeks poll. City falls under battle.

Seems limited for fantasy setting. Went for world as gives broader spectrum and can be designed to incorporate the others. World may just look like 1 continent, or have battle going on.
