    Oct / Nov '18 Lite Challenge: Finish Mapping this Island

    Our last Lite Challenge produced some great maps, and some hard choices when it came to voting time! We had two winners this month, so joint congrats to Eri for map 'Ruins of the Last King', and to Kellerica for 'Huly's Rest'. Honourable mention to runner up Tenia for the gorgeous 'Island of Nowhere'.

    Nov / Dec '18 Lite Challenge: Map the ruins of a lost city/fortress

    The new Lite Challenge is up and running, with a few maps started already. Bogie writes...

    This month's Challenge was suggested by MadMappingMapped, you can see his original thread here: Link to Suggestion
    Basically, map an ancient place that is in ruins. It can be real, like Machu Picchu, legendary, like Atlantis, or fictional, like Mordor. Or something that is entirely your own creation.

    Head for the intro thread if you have questions, or check out the current entries here.

    Note about future round-up posts: I'm struggling with time for these weekly blog posts, so I'm switching to a monthly round-up for the foreseeable future. The post will go up probably around the end of the first week of the month or thereabouts. Thanks to everyone who reads and comments!
