TOPIC: Design Contest Input Needed

Design Contest Input Needed 10 Years, 5 Months ago  
We wish to host a map design contest later this month, and I would like your feedback on how best to do it. I want to make it restricted somehow, so someone with a huge amount of sets will have an advantage. Here are some ideas to kick around:

1) Give a bried description of an encounter and let the builders come up with the set for it. That should keep it small and creative.

2) Give a list of what exact sets can be used, and then see who can come up with the coolest design.

3) Give a specific challenge and see who can to the best job -- something like a large bridge within a cavern complex or a ruined moathouse.

Your feedback would be appreciated.

Two Classes?

Limited: Small number of DF sets. (No homemade pieces)

Unlimited: Anything goes.

I'm interested in your #1 idea. DF used to best handle an encounter. That is how we use this stuff in games.

Will the Computer design thingy be ready by then? Is that what we will be using?

I Like the Idea of Multiple Classes "Advanced" and "Beginner" or what Ever, and are we Talking about "Open" Designs Using Like an Unlimited Number of "Fictional" Sets (A la Dungeon Mapper on the Site), or are we Talking about Showing say Digital Photos of Actual Sets... Cause that Could Make a Difference right there in Catagories Best "Ideal" Lay-out Versus Best "Actual" Layout etc... I Like Your Idea Number 2 myself, in terms of Variety... And I Also Think it might be Interesting to have a Specific Catagory for for say Individual "Modified" DF Pieces, Like Alternate Paint Schemes, and Home made "Nernies"... (Using DF of Course)...

I like the first idea, concerning the re-creation of an encounter. Just seems liek it makes better contest material then the others.
