Re: #GCCM [Week 5 - Fantasy] [Competition Post 2]

I voted Historical Fantasy.

I suppose it's premature to speak of specific concepts, but I'm having an idea. I've always loved the "Heroes in Hell" series of novels, in which historical figures like Sargon the Great, Julius Ceasar, Ernest Hemingway, Confucius, and Napoleon come to be recombined in new and entertaining ways. Obviously, that's copyrighted, but a similar concept under a different name -- like "Valhalla Roll Call" for instance -- could be done.

The great battles of history could be celebrated -- Austerlitz, Horns of Hattin, Agincourt, Guadalcanal, Salamis, Thermopylae, Bosworth Field, and so on. Their victors could also be present as terts, and you would get a bonus for matching the battle to it's victor. So you get +1 if you hold both Napoleon and Austerlitz, another +1 if you hold both Horns of Hattin and Saladin, and so on and so forth.

The rights to the map will follow with CC policy. The author of the map keeps it but CC has the right to use it for as long as it wants.
mint-murray wrote:High Fantasy it is (can include dark fantasy)

Dark fantasy deals mainly with creatures of a nasty nature. High fantasy can include light/dark elements.

Never too early to get your ideas in.

I'll guess 71 maps in the jar. Though, I think someone with a little more computer savvy then me, will blow-up the jar size and count them exactly.

ManB, I have to apologise to you. This is a mistake on my part. When I sent the entries of, I entered your first one twice. rds sent me a PM saying this and I, in my own haste never rechecked your PM. Again my apologies. I will endeavour to not make this mistake again.

Does not work. The pixels become very hard to count like that. So far, you are the forth to answer (though you need to send a PM) and all are different. :D

JaneAustin suggested I add a few books to this so everyone can see the type of things that can be made.

Attention all Conquer Clubbers!! Welcome to the second graphics competition in conjunction with The Great Community Map Project.

....................................................Everyone is a Critic

Below, you will find two images from my Rorke's Drift map. The only difference between the two images are the impassables for the outpost have been removed. Your job is to put them back in.

Original Image
Image

Download this image.

Do not copy my impassables. This contest is to see if you can come up with something better. :mrgreen:

Rules:
  • You cannot resize the images.
  • You must not change the game play.
  • You can submit up to two entries.
  • DO NOT put your name on the image!
  • Send your images to me koontz1973 via PM.
  • All submissions must be in by this time.



Prizes:
    First Place.
  • General Achievement Medal
  • 500 Conquer Credits or your name (variation may be used) as one of the regions on The Great Community Map.
    Second / Third Places.
  • General Achievement Medal

All entries will be judged by a crack squad of troops who recently broke out of a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by El_Jefe they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The Mod-Team.

Welcome to the fifth weekly competition held in the foundry in conjunction with The Great Community Map Project. We have a great one for you this week.

.................................................Carnival Games

Take a close look at the image below. It is from a simple childhood game of guess how many jellybean's are in the jar. Only this time, it is maps in a jar. But like jellybean's, more than one of the same colour can be in the jar. ;) Do not send the maps names, just the number of different maps.
Example
1 Midgard map = 1 map found.
2 Midgard maps = 1 map found.


    Image
The player with the closest number will be declared the winner. If multiple entries answer correctly, multiple medals (Max of 5) will be awarded.

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

Good luck and happy hunting.
:D
