    Exclamation Wanted: Cartographer for arena map

    We are running a "Battle of the Core Classes" *drum roll* and we seek the input from a skilled cartographer to create an arena map for the challenge.

    If anyone would be willing to lend us her/his expertise we would much appreciate it.


    Specifications for the map follows.

Just like Doom as well, there would be monsters in the way too to add some 3rd party flavor. Last one standing wins (which because of the monsters could be none). There would also be secret rooms to discover with magic. That would help out the rogue and ranger. In the end, none of my friends were interested in competition D&D though, so I dropped the idea.

    These are the map specification ideas from that thread, right?

    Yes, those are the ideas that have been tossed around in the thread.

    They are not very consistent, but might serve as inspiration.

    I posted my interest in the official topic.

    Really, I just need confirmation of the arena's dimensions or would you be fine with it being my decision?
