Title: Contest: Neraka Map Design
Post by: Anista on December 20, 2020, 11:21:45 PM
Hello Cartographers and Artsy people:

Neraka is missing a proper in-game map. We'd like to use your design!

Rules:
1. Design your map in text characters. (Visit inns of starting cities to see examples.)
2. Post your map as a response to this thread, or email to anista@arcticmud.org.
3. Each 'line' of the map should be no longer than 76 characters, including spaces.
4. The active immortal staff will vote on the 'best' one, if any are worthy of being implemented.
5. Submissions are due by Dec 30, 2020 to make it into the wipe patch.

Bragging rights is correct, with some possible 'special treatment' in the chaos before wipe. Surely people want to "give back" to the game after "taking so much" from it over the years, right?

However, if we offered a 5 minute head start on the 'wipe rush' for the best submission, how many submissions do you think we'd get?  ;)

How about the winner gets +2 to any stat they want at start of wipe? Just on 1 character. Or they can play exotic race from start of wipe

This sounds good, except it's only allowed to be the worst stat for your class and doesn't follow you through reincarnates.

How about loading the other maps that arent on the website?

I know the existing ones are really good.

Ascii versions are better than none, especially for new people starting.
