    Theme – None!

    We’ve decide to have another “Free-for-All” month without a theme.

    Your submission can be whatever you wish, as long
    as it complies with the detailed rules below.

    Originality and creativity goes a long way! ^_^

    Detailed Rules:

      • Submission has to be a Battlemap made with Forgotten Adventure’s assets, textures and resources, you can modify them however you like.

    >You Can Download Our Assets Here<<

      • You can use assets/textures etc from elsewhere (if you have rights to use them) or even draw your own! The majority of the map has to be created with Forgotten Adventures textures/assets.

        If the used Non-FA assets/textures don’t match the style/aesthetics and they make up large portion of the map it’ll be considered as a negative in the judging process.

        Example: Used Non-FA Textures covering 50%+ of your map with couple of our assets on top.

      • Submission are limited to 1 IMAGE FILE per person.
        If your battlemap features a Building with multiple floors for example, please put them all into a single picture.
      • If you notice a mistake in your map after submitting, you can fix it and re-submit your map with the same name!
      • Your Battlemap may be any size or orientation of your choosing. 
        But of course great looking map at around ~20x20sq will have a better chance at winning than super detailed 5×5 room or empty and bare 60×60 cave.
      • Submissions that are deemed offensive or inappropriate in any way will be automatically disqualified.
      • Maps submitted after the deadline will not be judged.


      • All submitted maps (unless they are disqualified) will be shared on our website once the contest is concluded free to download.

    Finished Map Export Rules:

    Finished Map has to be in JPG or JPEG format, maximum size of 35 Mb and Without Grid.

    Recommended:     200 ppi  (1sq = 200×200 pixels)
    Minimum:        140 ppi   (1sq = 140×140 pixels)

    Quality Example:
    20×20 Battlemap would have these dimensions

    Judging Process:

    We will be focusing mainly on 2 Main factors when deciding the winners.

        • Aesthetics — The overall look and composition of your map
        • Game-play  — How fun your map would be to play in
