How many map making medals do the current CAs have between them?
For a bonus, how many map medals do all of the people who work in the foundry have?

I'm going to guess that CAs means everyone wearing blue shoes, except nobodies - 13 medals.
I'm also going to guess that the bonus question adds only nobodies, and his 6 makes 19.

Part 2. nobodies is correct, you forgot Gilligan though. Our trusty xml checker.

Not just yet - the answer to Part 2, with Gilligan's 9, is 28.

NOW I beat the Gilligan.

I voted for a map based on a real place. Truth is stranger thanfiction. I also have something in mind and wonder whether I will be able to do that!

### Re: The Great Community Map Project. Competition Post 2

I voted for fantasy, because there really is far more room for imagination and mapmakers' creativity to have the free reign. And I think we already have a heck lot of maps that are based on real locations and/or events...

Gilligan brought me here! (But methinks Swifte is winning...)

Correct, I drew it free hand with a number two pencil.

Got to love those filters.

I find a real place probably more intriguing, and although most argue that there are "enough" real maps, I think that it can still be exploited. By the way, Real-life can be outside of the Earth: Jupiter and its moons might be interesting too, for example, or a Rail World.

i have lots of ideas,just take the themes of pinball-machines like pink panter or heavy metal.Or other boardgames like monopoly.And then all the books;papillion or ,,it'' etcetera.I voted fantasy becouse there are less of them and more possibilitys.The basics of all maps are quit the same,but its nice to have lots of choise.Indeed,a battle royal with more regions would be great,i joined one once and was eliminated before i could start,zero rounds!!!

It says real place, or fantasy. Sex themed map isn't a real place. Although, I suppose it could go either way. (thats what she said!)
With a "real place" being some kind of sex themed place....*shrugs*

Only if you want to make it tough. Feedback is one of the easiest things to do with maps. You either like a map or not, and then why.

Well done sannem. You got the last just for fun.

Tourney news.
First tournament is now full and has privileges. Just waiting on the poll to end on Sunday to get that started with the chosen map.
merch313 has also awarded the tournament with a GA medal. So thanks to the tournament directors for supporting us here in the foundry.

Another tournament will go up soon.

I was serious! I've thought about it for awhile now

You have a map about Nuclear War, Drug War, Prohibition, the Apocalypse.

I think its about time we have a sex themed map! Its only a natural progression.

We can call it....the Battle of the Bulge.
