    Well, winter has arrived (in my part of the world at least), so I was thinking it was time to get inspired by that annual white horror.

    So, with Christmas coming up, being the busy time of the year for many people, I am thinking we make this a two-month challenge, having it run from now and until the end of January.

    The challenge is simple, make a winter-themed map. This can be a dungeon, village, city, overland or any other map type you can envision, the only requirement is that it is winter-themed in some way.

    As usual, this contest will be linked to the community atlas. You should identify some location within the atlas you can map, and use that for the contest. As always, you don't have to submit your map to the atlas even if you participate in this challenge, we are only using the atlas as a setting for the challenge, but as always, we are grateful for anyone who do wish to participate in the atlas by submitting their map. For anyone planning to submit their final map to the atlas, you should register your claim with me before starting as usual, to ensure multiple people won't be working on the same location, as well as ensure you meet the atlas guidelines.

    When picking a location in the atlas, please make sure it is a location where a wintry map would make sense. Doesn't have to be a location of eternal winter, but it should be a place where the location would look like your map for at least part of the year (i.e. in winter season).

    Some suggestions:
    - A snowy village
    - An overland map covering the southern coast of Ezrute
    - The snow-tower of the Ice Wizard
    - An ice-level for our megadungeon below The Temple of the Unholy (See the previous Megadungeon Challenge for details)

    For anyone participating, please post your intention here. I encourage everyone who participates to have a WIP thread for their map to show off their progress. If you make one, please link to it from your post here.

    Hoping to see many people participating. The atlas now contain 373 maps, and I would love to see this number reach 400 before the 3-year anniversary in february.

    How very weird!

    I was thinking earlier this morning that It would be nice to make a Christmas card map now that I've practiced my inking skills a little.

    Maybe, if I have time after I've finished the Ferraris map, I can do a wintery version of it of some kind :)

    I'll think about it... but I really can't come up with anything.

    Well, of course I'm in - and I might do an island in the north of Alarius, I'll get back to you on that.

    Oooh! I experimented with a winter map a few years ago so I'm in.

    I'll claim #22 Tavern and Inn in Stormwatch located in the Emerald Crown Forrest on Alarius.

    Here's the link, to my WIP thread

    Ooooh! I've done quite a lot of winter mapping, as you've all likely noticed with all my posts some time back when my players were off to fight a white dragon. However, many of my fills were some i made and others i found online. It'll be interesting for me to keep within the constraints of CC3 products and stay out of my MY SYMBOLS and MY FILLS folders, hahaha! Okay, I've been doing a lot of writing for my campaign and making dice for our shop that it's time to get back to doing some maps!

    I'll reserve the area Varmstadt Springs in Skorra on Ezrute in the GlaciƤr Kristol region

    I will do North Wind Island in Alarius. I have never done winter before, so I will be extending myself. While I have lobster and salad on the beach on Santamas day. Enjoy the cold everyone.

    I really can't decide what's worse, winter or lobsters & beaches. Probably the latter, but I am a fan of none of them. Wouldn't have minded having your climate in general though, especially on this time of the year. Looking forward to seeing how your winter map turn out though, winter is so much better on imagery than in real life.

    I haven't looked into the atlas a lot but from a quick glance it looks really interesting. I'm definitely going to do this, hopefully it turns out well!

    Great. I always love having more people participating, being for the atlas or just the contest. And the contests are all about challenging yourself a little.
