Theme – Winter

Each Contest will have a specific Theme your map should be
based on, This Months theme is 
Winter

We think that the Winter theme should be pretty straight forward.
We just released 3 packs of Winter tiles and assets so we
would like to see what You guys are able to come up with 🙂 

Your Map can be whatever you like as long as it’s Winter Themed, be it a Cave,
Mountainside, Tavern, Hideout, Fort etc.

It’s up to you 🙂

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<<

>>Extra Clip Studio Winter Brushes<<

    • 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.
    • 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.
