I think the problem is with the shadows on the individual steps, then. Not the overall shadowing mind you, but the individual shadows on each stair. Those shadows have a hard line on one side, and are faded on the other. The edges the stairs are cast shadows on the steps below them, in other words, and I think yours are backwards?

Anyone else see this, or is it just me?

To be honest, Rake, it matters very little to me. A verbal description by the DM (in my group, that's me)would clear any confusion my players may have anyway. I'm not going for 100% realism in these maps anyway, just a better looking map for my players to look at than black lines drawn on a plexiglass topped table.

Perhaps if I was planning on entering these maps in a contest I may have paid more attention to details like that, but the fact is I never intended to enter any map-making contest, and I certainly have no hope of winning. If you dont like the stairs and want to use the maps you can download the dja and change them. Of course you'll probably find alot of [?]'s where objects should be as my art folders are a bit of a mess.

This contest entry was so incredibly close to geting my vote!

It will make it into my game. I especially like the Tipped Tankard with the alleyway through the building. It was one of those - "I wish I'd thought of that" things.

The visual appeal in these maps are incredible and I am certainly looking forward to more maps.

Once again, I ended up weeding out entries and my personal affinity for a few sentences of backstory. . . . but it was really close.

This map was also very high on my list for Best Inn. I really like the layouts and the incredible use of art pieces. Nice work

By the way, I did post an overview map with my contest entry. It is cut in four and posted so it looks like one big map (on my browsers at least).

Ah, sorry Kepli, I just looked through all the pages of your entry post again with my browser window fullscreen and found the overview. Somehow I missed it ... sorry I did too, as it would have definitely made my top 3. Though I dont know who you would have replaced ... 3 choices isn't enough with all the great maps that were submitted.

Yup, making a choice for the top 3 was a real b#$ch ... I constantly felt guilty for not nominating others. We make some pretty darn good maps here
