Yeah... But what about the south pole? And would there be any other bonuses beside the base autodeploy?

Also this would mean we would neet at least 16 bases, and preferably at least 24 regular territories.

Open ms paint... take some existing map of antarctic, doodle the borders & territory names on top of it, bonus areas etc.

If you don't want to or don't have the time I understand... Bison king already made one gp plan, but I thought it would be cool if I could get some competing designs and then choose the best ;)



dude, I have TONS of time, still waiting for a professional level job to land in my lap.. lol

How about one territory... he who gets the drop gets the game. Totally random.

Antarctica: The Russian Roulette of Continents.

And as dumb as this sounds, I would play this game at least once, if not then multiple times.

Well, it should probably go in the no pile... but think about it. The ominous image of Antarctica, a list of 7 colonels and all you need to do is join to get their points... maybe.

Mm-hmm. How would one get those colonels to join though?

Seriously though, IH, if you have any ...eh... serious gameplay ideas for this map, you are just as welcome as anyone else to put together a gameplay draft and post it here... can't have too many ideas after all. ;)

Sounds like an idea from the Foundry Past---I recall a slot machine map. :)

===================

As for the map, if there is any difficulty figuring out the direction of the project, one could always do a futuristic Antarctica map, I see some fun potential for that...but I suppose it makes sense to get a vanilla Antarctica map first.

Mainly, I'm just hoping to bypass that pesky 2 map limit by having someone else do the gameplay and put the map through the foundry on his name ;)

...Well, we don't have a vanilla moon map either, and we're still making a moon map based on a futuristic war. So I for one would have no problem with a futuristic battle scene on the antarctic... really, anything goes, as long as I can put in some penguins ;)

I've been lurking in the various Foundry forums for quite some time, wanting to get my hands into it, but also wanting to avoid anything like Blitzaholic has with Clandemonium.

I've got a couple of ideas for it, but I must admit that I completely and utterly lack graphical skills. MS Paint will really be the best that I can do, but if that works for you then I'll give it a go.

natty, you've already got one idea from The Bison King, and sounds like a second coming from AoN. I'll try to get my idea done tonight or in the next couple of days, and then you'll have 3 choices to choose from. I'll commit to running with it all the way through as a true partnership if you choose my ideas. Ultimately though, as the artist, it's your map and your choice on which gameplay to go with.

Oh, and I haven't looked at e_i_pi's design so if mine looks like his it is entirely by accident. Don't want his idea biasing mine.
