KHAs 1st ANNUAL MEGA-MAP BUILDING CONTEST! WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Hello fellow ‘Scapers. I was talking to PoF a few months back and somehow we brought up a multi-man FFA (8 or 9 people; MMFFA). I was joking about it, but he took it seriously, and now I am here running a contest.

For this MMFFA, I need a MEGA-map (i guess this would make it a MMMMFFA?). Below I have a list of all terrain I have access to, categorized by terrain type and size. Your task is to build a field using as much of this terrain as possible.



Winner Announced: Auralerogeny. View his winning map here.



Rules/Regulations:
1. Entries must be in PDF format! Submit Entries to my email: kh_addict@verizon.net
2. Keep the map as balanced as possible.
3. There must be at least 8 starting zones.
4. Each starting zone must be able to accomodate no less than 1500 points.
5. Size of the map can be pretty much unlimited, as long as it is within the terrain regulations (see list below), but we (my playgroup) would prefer if you make it to fit one of two layouts: 12’x3’ or 6’x6’ (I have 2 6’x3’ tables to use). The layout you choose is purely up to you. Also, please keep in mind army cards! I have 3 small end tables (dinner tables) that can fit maybe 12 cards each, and a card table as well that I can use for card placement if need be. We also have a floor (obviously).
6. Please, ONLY ONE ENTRY PER PERSON

Deadlines:
The contest will run until Monday, November 20, 2006. We (my playgroup) will analyze the maps and decide which one we will use amongst ourselves, and that maps designer will be rewarded with a $10 (subject to change) gift-card to Walmart (unless they have any objections to WM, then they can PM me and we’ll work something out). The winner will be notified by the following wednesday, both in this thread and VIA PM.

Just to avoid questioning, I am doing a gift card because it is easier that to say “…one small expansion of your choice,” because I may not be able to find that expansion. It’ll also only cost $.39 to ship, instead of upwards of 1 or 2 dollars, since I can fit it in an envelope and stick it in my mailbox for pickup.

The Rundown:
Make a field to fit on either a 12’x3’ table or a 6’x6’ table using the terrain below.
Fields must have a minimum of 8 starting zones
Starting zones must be able to accommodate 1500 point armies.
All entries must be in a PDF format, or they will be disregarded. No exceptions.
You have until Monday, November 20, 2006, at 12:00 midnight EST to submit entries. (I am lax with this, as I have to have everyone in my group view the entries before we decide on the winning map).

24 Grass: 78
7 Grass: 53
3 Grass: 64
2 Grass: 77
1 Grass: 206

UPDATE:
I will now be accepting VirtualScape files in addition to PDF formatted entries. VS will allow you to render more easily the castles and TT, which i would really like to use in this; LandSCAPE will not.

you have until midnight (EST) tonight to submit any entries, guys! at that point, this thread will be shut down and an (un)official winner will be decided.

Can it be submitted in Virtualscape or does it have to be a picture of the map.

Do we have to use all the terrain on that list or we just can't go over it?

I already have some 6'x6' maps.

For those about to scape, we salute you.

K/H_Addict costs too much!
it has to be in a PDF format (IE with levels to go by as per the official maps) or i won't accept it.


I'd like it to use what is listed, which is why i took the time to post what i have. If any of them use the bulk of what is listed, go ahead and submit one. Otherwise, all i can say is "Sorry."



Also, i am going to add this to the first post momentarilly, but please, only ONE ENTRY PER PERSON

One more thing: Please, when submitting entries, Include something heroscape related in the title, preferrably "MMFFA Entry."

Just be sure to use what is listed, and no more than that, and make sure the entry is in PDF format. Right now, it seems you are the only one who will be entering...

I imagine the sheer scale involved is scaring a fair few people off. It's hard enough to make a balanced, interesting map of normal size, let alone a behemoth like one of these...

I've got most of the expansions but you've got a lot more master set material than I do. I might do something purely in Virtualscape though if I end up having time. Luckily Virtualscape gives physical measurements in the map building screen. It sounds fun.
