Re: Map Building Contest: Ruins of Valhalla

Quick question: Can we use BftU/Marvel as expansion sets? Or are they set at master sets?

Just talked with Sir Heroscape and he also agreed that we should use BftU and Marvel as expansions.

I will ask @Sir Heroscape to add that to the OP.

Just joking right? I didn’t mean to scare you off…it was more out of an effort to get the word out to the community of cartographers who might not otherwise be aware of it. Help the contest get some traction…ya know?

I apologize, I was just taking from Dignan’s list of Cartographers that he has on a Sticky in the Maps thread. I tagged all the most active members instead of the whole list.

Agreed. Continue on

Re: Map Building Contest: Ruins of Valhalla

I still need to place Glyphs, start zones and maybe add some battlements for flavor but that is roughly where I am at.

Not sure how balanced it is. Considering a permanent Move Glyph at the Fortress Door and Treasure Glyphs on the sand hexes. Uses everything from RotV and Forest and all the tiles and a decent amount of walls from Castle.

Interesting exercise as I have never attempted to build with limits and for something 'official' though I always tried for balance in maps with SZs. We mostly play drop placement these days.

EDIT: Is there a way to post the VS file or do I just need to 'take a pic' of each level for the build instructions?

I always upload the VS file to a site like mediafire. Then you can just link the download of it in your post. That is an easy route.
If you upload the VS file you can print out the instructions through virtualscape. If you do it that way tornado, multiple judges can at least build it and try it out.

@Sir Heroscape, agreed on the marvel and underdark expansions.

Re: Map Building Contest: Ruins of Valhalla

Cool. I'll see if I can come up with something for you guys. I'm really tempted to use a castle set for the theme (ruins), but then they are hard to balance for all armies. Uncapped wall sections might be the compromise.

Re: Map Building Contest: Ruins of Valhalla

BftU as an expansion is incredibly tempting. I may have to try an alternate.

Re: Map Building Contest: Ruins of Valhalla

Like All Your Pie, I'm also surprised to get a call here as a mapmaker, but I'll certainly try to contribute something here.
