Togo, Argentina, Greenland, Benin, and Jordan.

He says he's called Innis, by the way.
I asked him what his parents were thinking - he told me he's been asking himself that for 30 years.

historical fantasy is my choice! whether in the realms of king arthur, norse gods, the pharaohs or something completely different, there is plenty of fertile ground for the imagination to bring forth a truly original work.

With just over a day left to vote on this, it is split between 3.

Considering low has Game of Thrones, Dark has Twilight and contemporary has Harry Potter, three of the biggest fantasy names over the last few years; surprising they have not gotten more votes.

IKR! I really wanted Contemporary initially (not just because of HP), but since it looks like it isn't going to win, I had to switch my vote to one of the others...

Unfortunately it is misleading. I notice the votes for High Fantasy have pulled ahead again since you inserted "Lord of the Lings", but we are obviously not going to be making an LOTR map.

The categories were clear enough as they were, they didn't need "examples" which just serve to prejudice the vote.


My apologies if this made things worse. I am not terribly familiar with the distinctions b/w different types of fantasy, and thought if 2-3 examples of well-known books or movies or tv shows were posted, it would helpful to those like me.

Honestly, I do not see what was done as influencing people. Many many times has a person come in asking for a game of thrones map and low fantasy had low votes. :lol:
