Back in Action Ė New ARV Contest

Posted September 13th, 2021 at 03:35 AM by truth


What? What? Another ARV contest awakens your curiosity and creativity ... and calls on your willingness to accept a challenge!

It's been more than a minute, or two, but the Architects of the Realms of Valhalla have recovered and we are back with a new contest and a great prize for the best Architect of Valhalla.

This contest comes to you with a rather difficult proposal; those of faint-heart should stop reading now.

Weíre calling on all map builders to come up with competitive, tournament worthy maps where you are challenged specifically to build with at least one Marvel expansion. We don't see the Marvel set used too often. Now, we will!

Submissions will be accepted starting on October 4th and will go through November 1st. More information can be found on the ARV Contest Thread.

And last but definitely...

10 Tips to Make Your Maps Not Suck

Posted September 6th, 2021 at 10:01 PM by superfrog

Recently on the discord server, somebody asked for some noob-friendly tips on how to make maps that are fairly balanced. I consider myself pretty skilled at making maps that don't suck (not an expert in making perfect maps by any stretch), so I put together my top 10 tips to make any map work.

Please note that I'm not saying all great maps follow these guidelines. I'm only saying that if you DO follow these guidelines, I don't think you can make a map that sucks.

Perhaps in the future I'll take some time to revisit some or all of these tips in detail, but for now, here they are:

mediocrefrog's tips for making a map that is at least okay
1. Try to have the highest height at level 4. 3 and 5 can work too but 4 is a safe choice.
2. Make at least two sections that are this height, but make them close enough together that figures can easily threaten multiple from a broad range of the map.
3. Put some glyphs evenly spaced from...

FFC #77 - Figuring out stakes

Posted August 18th, 2021 at 02:20 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #77

Iíve said elsewhere that I want to use this time to further study writing, specifically what I have left to work on.

One of those areas is stakes. Stakes have always been a bit of an issue for me, as Iíve mentioned before on numerous occasions. Despite various proclamations that I had Ďfixedí stakes or Ďfound the answersí, they always were difficult to work with when developing a story.

Over the years, Iíve gotten an increasing understanding of the nature of stakes. Not only in simply what works and what doesnít, but why those things work or donít. Iíve analyzed books and films, read research, and formulated my own findings. Usually when you come up with a theory that fits everything like a glove, itís a sign youíre on the right track. Well, Iíve found such a theory, and I wanted to share it with the other writers here.

Iíve gotten bits and pieces of what exactly personal stakes (the...

FFC #76 - Opening impressions of The Stormlight Archive

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #76

A while ago, I finished the Mistborn trilogy, by Brandon Sanderson. In a word, Iíd describe it as a solid read. Some things I took issue with, others I thought were masterful. The end result was that it got me excited to start the Stormlight Archive. I finally got my hands on the first book about half a month ago, but in all that time, Iíve only read through the second chapter.

While there are a few reasons for my apparent lack of enthusiasm for the book (some of which have nothing to do with the book at all), there were a few which I feel have contributed heavily to the bookís current un-read state, and which I think can be instructive in how not to start a story.

Iím coming to realize that Brandon Sanderson is known for his unique style of switching PoV constantly throughout his books. While he certainly managed to use it to his advantage in Mistborn, here itís causing me to lose interest after I...
