WINNER!!! - Spartan Scrolls

DRIDER
by Ulysses



Download Requires: 1 BftU and 1 FotA
As you and your party struggle through the rough-hewn, labyrinthine passageways of the Underdark, the walls begin to open up, and just as you feel a prickle on your neck, your boot finds an uneven step. With an echoing crunch, you look down to see what appears to be the molted exoskeleton of some sort of giant black arachnid. You lift your torch to see a yawning cavern with smooth walls and stalagmites carved in the likeness of the drow queen, Lolth. ‘Drider territory!’ you croak to your party as they ready their weapons.

Congratulations @Ulysses on the #1 Map in the ARV Spartan Scrolls map building contest!!! Contact @Nomad to collect your prize.

And another huge thanks to all who participated in both the contest AND the voting!!! We had 35 voters, one of our biggest yet! It's exciting to see such a great turnout and we look forward to our next contest. In the meantime, head on over to the workshop thread if you want some help on your map.

Thanks All!!!

~ARV

Re: VOTE NOW!! - TOP 10 - Spartan Scrolls

Great work cartographers!

This was the toughest time we have had trying to narrow the field down to 10 maps. We spent hours discussing and debating.

With so many deserving maps, it really came down to the fine-tuning and slight differences in the balance of the maps. For those not in the top-10, we encourage you to post in the workshop thread.

Thanks again. Long live Heroscape!

Re: VOTE NOW!! - TOP 10 - Spartan Scrolls

I’d be interested in somebody a little better than me going through and giving their opinions on some of these maps. Maybe @dok or @OrcElfArmyOne ? I can understand the judges not wanting to give too much bias.

I’ll probably drop my (feeble) thoughts in this thread tomorrow.

Re: VOTE NOW!! - TOP 10 - Spartan Scrolls

Not sure if anyone else is having issues, but I have one vote to cast (I've already submitted 2), but I don't have access to the form any longer, it just shows results.

Is there a quick link to topdowns or build instructions for all of these? I'm reluctant to publicly judge them when I'm not totally sure I'm seeing the whole map correctly from the one image.

Re: VOTE NOW!! - TOP 10 - Spartan Scrolls

This is a question for one of the judges. I noticed my map didn’t make the cut which I expected since I am new to the game. However I was wondering if you had any tips on how I could improve the map and ideas to make it better. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

The Submissions Archive has all of the maps and their build instruction links:

Absolutely! We hope you everyone who didn't make it into the top ten will take advantage of our Workshop Thread - located here. You'll notice that there are a few instructions there to follow.

Forgive the formality - but it helps to keep everything in the same spot so we're not chasing around multiple threads to workshop maps with people.

What Superfrog said on Discord was right. So everyone who still has yet to vote, make sure you do it all at once!

Re: VOTE NOW!! - TOP 10 - Spartan Scrolls

A lot of these maps seem either way too cramped (full of chokepoints) or way too open (lots of spots without line of sight blockers). I feel like there are a few real standouts that do a good job of balancing these two extremes.

Parallel and Wyrmspine Gate are the clear stand outs for me. Several others look promising with some tweaks. Regardless, this is a popularity contest, not a playability contest, and in your average casual game, balance doesn't matter much anyway.
