Is there a place where we can view the maps?

Blood in the Water
If a Sea Witch is adjacent to a wounded Hero while on a water space, this Sea Witch adds 4 to their attack value.

Then play them with some Drow Chainfighters to get the heroes where you want them.

You have me. I'll work on something. I imagine there's a suitable mini out there, too.

I got this. Just give me some time, and occasionally private reminders.

Re: Ruins of Valhalla: Top 10 Posted!!

I'd like to look at each map again before voting. Is there a one stop shop somewhere for images of the top 10 maps?

Sir Heroscape is putting one in the OP soon. And by "soon," I mean "presently." And by "presently," I mean "in the future."

The OP should have an image of all 10 maps. But I'll be adding each map individually as well.

Re: Ruins of Valhalla: Top 10 Posted!!

I just want to say thank you to all of you guys that participated in our contest. All of you that didn't make it into the top ten don't be too disappointed. I can personally assure you that we will have a great time using your maps in our NHSD tournament and I will personally make sure we run different kinds of contests in the future. Don't look at it as a waste of time. If you had fun doing it, and the other scapers have fun playing on it, it is a win. I also have fun building prizes and sending them out. That also takes time and money, but I'm happy to do it, as I know @Sir Heroscape , and @Tiranx are as well. Keep your eyes out for some more contests or draws coming up that I'm sure you will love. Again thanks, all you guys.

Which of The Ruins of Valhalla maps is the best?!

Forsaken Cloister
Arborshate's Pathway
By a Common Barrier
Ruined Pier
The Great Wall of Valhalla
Desecrated Mine
Hephaestus
Valda Keep
Stalwart
From the Ashes


No
Roundabout Marsh ~Capsocrates in the top ten?





Of those remaining, I particularly liked:






But the winner (IMHO, of course) is . . . Stalwart ~Dignan!



Elegant, balanced, and a bit asymmetrical, Dignan displays yet again why his Maps are not merely Maps, but Works of Art. [And why I've been, lately, turning so often to him for a Map, rather than building my own.]

For those looking for a consolidated list. The OP has been updated with both Download links and images of each of the 22 map submissions for this contest. Enjoy!

~Sir Heroscape, who probably should have gotten his homework done first...
