Yeah, that would make sense. I'll do that a soon as I get on a computer.

Is anyone having trouble accessing the PDF's? I'm very new to the whole Google docs and PDF thing.

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

I checked for you and it wants me to sign in before I can access the file. Not familiar with how Google docs work, I use mediafire for my maps and it provides me with a link I can share.

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

Nice looking maps.

Magma Marsh in particular stood out for me, but I'm a sucker for a nice lava map. Did you think about trying to incorporate the Hive as a line of sight blocker? And drudge aside, I'm not sure what will draw units to the very edge, perhaps a glyph on each side?

Actually, no, the idea of adding the hive to the map hadn't crossed my mind, but I'll give it a shot.

As to glyphs, well, I used glyphs on all of those maps (yes, they were to the sides. ), I found they were defiantly a magnet and attracted units to the sides. I just kinda forgot to add them to the map.

Thanks for the feedback, Ollie!

I have my work cut out for me, so just as soon as I get on my computer I'll fix all the mistakes.

~JS, still from his phone...

EDIT: I really had a good time building Magma Marsh, the idea of lava and swamp is really appealing to me.

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

I'd recommend putting the places that you used for glyphs as part of your Virtualscape file so it is clear how they have played in to your design.

I've got a concern with Magma Marsh; at first glance it looks pretty, but a glyph anywhere on the map can be reached by a flyer with a move of 6 on the first order marker. So you can fly over with any number of dragons, grab a glyph, and attack. Mimring, Nilfheim and Zelrig can all get first strikes on multiple figures.

Unfortunately I don't think there is much that can be done about that without redesigning the map

I like the look of So Cold It Burns. I assume that you use glyphs on the furthermost lava tiles? If not this is a great spot for them. That said, there is only one adjacent hex that can be attacked from, so this could be troublesome for melee attacking a figure on that glyph. If you have them available, I'd recommend replacing one of those molten lava with another lava tile so it can be attacked by at least two melee figures.

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

@bacchus,
The glyph on MagaMarsh is actually located on a single piece, preventing any double spaced figure from standing upon them. While it's not entirely off to the side of the map, it is still rather close.

It's so cold....it burns!:
Yup, that's where the glyph is located. I'll see about placing another piece next-to it. However, I'm trying to limit my boards to 1 master set, and two expansion set's, so that may be a little tricky.

I need to get back to these at some point, but I'm a little busy at the moment, so I'll conduct the changes later.

BTW, are you fellas able to access the PDF links now?

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

No. I clicked a link and it just brings me to a blank page with some drop down menus (file, edit, view, help) that don't lead to anything that allows me to see the build directions. I tried the download option and it wants me to sign in.

Re: JS's Just Special Map Thread - NEW

Nice looking maps. I would suggest switching the start zones on Forest Fight for the Heights to the long ends of the map. Currently, ranged flyers will be able to get a first turn strike on an opponent's start zone.
