Welcome to the Monthly Map Melee sponsored by the Worldbuilding community where you have the chance to win over 50 steem just by drawing a simple map. The goal of this contest is to help Game Masters from all Tabletop RPG genres to fill up a portfolio of fun and easy to produce maps while simultaneously introducing steemit to one of the most time-consuming parts of the game, world-building. While this can also be one of the most rewarding aspects of the game, it often goes unsung. The bard will sing many tales of the party’s glory but never of the GM’s. And, damn it, you deserve some recognition for your hard work. We know how many maps are never seen. We have burnt that same midnight oil. We know the pain, but more importantly, we know the pleasure of this hobby and want to spread it to more people in the world.

50 Steem as the total prize pool

@lacking made me do it ! I upvoted the blog and we will enter the contest asap we are already drawing

We look forward to your entries!

Awesome! Looking forward to it!

Thank you for your entry! It's wonderful to see the children included in this. Worldbuilding at such a young age is just the push they need to show them that they can create worlds just the same as the people that create the books and tv shows they love.

And thwy are so good at it, they tell about it like they live in that world. And they extended it to minecraft and we are on our way today and they brought paper to draw some more. Yes fun!

Minecraft is an absolutely amazing game for keeping that imagination active. I've thought about using Minecraft to build parts of my world to help me visualize the layout and terrain, but that would be a LOT of effort for me.

Nice!! I hope you will get lots of takers!!

Thank you!! We hope to see a good number of tries!

Fascinating idea! I've got this on my calendar of todo's to remind me. I hope to be able to put something together! Thanks for sharing this on #pypt!

Love the idea! I'll try and come up with an entry... Though its outside my typical genre its still fun :)

What is your typical genre? This first contest is fantasy map making simply because that's what my cousin and I were grooving on at the moment and hoped it would be a relatively easy contest even non-writers could participate in. We are open to any ideas and genres for future contests.

No worries! Its a great idea! It just means I don't have anything which fits on hand ;)
We tend to focus on Science Fiction themed, but that doesn't mean I can't make it work. :)
The only real obstacle is time!
Once again, thanks for the great contest!
