If you're aware of a great map that's never been played at Gencon, let us know. It may be that it is too large or uses terrain that we have little of. Or it may actually be that we haven't seen it.)
This is why I really like the map makers that put the dimensions (in Inches or or cm NOT hexes) on the pdf. It's so nice to sort through by size.

@Tiranx , @TREX and I have been in communication these last 3 months or so planning and working on a new map thread where tournament directors can go for high quality, competitive maps. Our design will be similar to the format we used for our most recent map building contest, The Ruins of Valhalla (and now currently the Wilds of Valhalla).

Re: Battlefields of Valhalla Discussion Thread

So when browsing through the list of group memberships available in this forum, I noticed this one:
Architects of the Realms of Valhalla
Judges for the successor group to the BoV

With Group leaders: @Sir Heroscape , @Tiranx , & @TREX
Is this new project being worked on in secret, as I have not seen any public discussion on it since the post above from the end of last year. Maybe I should have just PMed the leaders, but am curious into any progress.

Re: Battlefields of Valhalla Discussion Thread

Hello! I couldn't find this information anywhere else but I do not want to shift through 5k posts to find it. I am using the map Arctic Divide. I downloaded the PDF and built it but the PDF fails to state if the snow and ice are heavy and slippery respectfully or not. Thanks.

I believe it is normal snow and normal ice.

The designer left it open but he did have a preference:

My personal preference was for both to be Heavy, but the Heavy/Light factor is ultimately left up to the user of the map. Tundra, so far, is the only terrain whose effects can change upon the decision of the map user.
Most of the times i've seen it used it was heavy snow normal ice. I believe we actually reviewed accounting for that variance.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

For my intent and purposes to be as official as possible I will use heavy snow and normal ice and argue for this to be the default due to it being judged off of these parameters.

In the BoV display thread, Ice Blossom is incorrectly listed in the 1x Road to the Forgotten Forest section.

I see what you are saying. It looks like it is in the right section, but missing TT in the parenthesis. I'm not sure who has access to that original post to edit that.

I don't have time to go hunting for it right now, but if one of you guys will drop me a direct link to it, I can fix it.
