Re: Map Building Contest: The Wilds of Valhalla

That other post was edited. Thanks for your patience.

I'm one of those people who build the maps first, then reverse-engineer them starting at the top to put them into Virtualscape. I had a heck of a time with this map, as I consistently switched tabs between the Snow, Road, Swarm and Base terrain.

Also, I want to thank Sir Heroscape for rekindling my affection for map sharing. Now maybe I'll be inspired to share pics from Heroscape Club or even get back to vids with Canuck.

ooo....very intriguing map.
You've inspired me to write a backstory for you for that map...feel free to use it if you'd like

Just to throw in a couple cents no one asked for, I've designed and played on plenty of maps with glyphs on lava, and it's honestly one of my favorite aspects of lava terrain. It makes glyph-centered decisions making and risk taking more exciting, and makes glyph holding more fluid because it's more likely to change between players and less likely for one player to just hunker down on a glyph.

When a map is built for it, it works quite well. Also, obviously, the strength of the glyph matters. You're not often going to want to risk lava damage for initiative, but attack +1 will merit either risking wounds or spending activations to hop on/hop off quite often.

Lava field glyphs also advantage using multi-life heroes, or lava resistant figures, or figures that have unusual movement powers like zombies or GGs. I like this more than advantaging Deathreavers.

Re: Map Building Contest: The Wilds of Valhalla

Good points @dok and @BiggaBullfrog , though I think experience will have to teach me what you've said. Im beginning to see the theoretical merit of glyphs on lava, but time will tell for me. Either way, I appreciate the comments.
@NecroBlade , life happens...we'll catch you in our next one.

Re: Map Building Contest: The Wilds of Valhalla

@Sir Heroscape , I'm back to work today from being sick. Now that I'm feeling half alive I'm going to finish up the prize tower when I get home, then I'll throw down on judging the maps. Thanks all you guys that put in submissions, the maps I got to take a glance at so far look pretty cool.
