It's going to be amazing!

And the Winner of the 2012 Custom Map Giveaway is...

Posted by Labyrinthian

Entry to our 2012 Custom Map Giveaway is closed.  We had some great entries, but unfortunately we can have only one winner.

And that winner is...

Gerald O'Grady!

Here is his winning entry: 

My map is of the world Eagonia, a land of Volcanic islands, a god-struck wasteland, vast giant-filled mountain ranges, deserts, swamps and huge forests. Twelve nations thrive including a large evil empire, a nation of city-states and several small embattled kingdoms. Explorers discover ancient ruins, mystic sites and underground cities but more interesting are the thriving cities half above and half below water, the holy city of Th’ir and the wastelands of a nation destroyed by gods. This map, from the quill of a daring voyager, seeks the limits of the continent and halts where “Here be dragons!”


Congratulations to our winner!  Gerald, we'll be in touch.

2012 Custom Map Giveaway!!!

Posted by Labyrinthian

We've been having some technical difficulties here over the past few days both with our feed and our site.  I think they've all been resolved, but if anyone encounters further problems please email me directly using the "email us" scroll on the right.

Because of said technical difficulties I wanted to re-post about our 2012 Custom Map Giveaway.

From the original post:


Have you ever wanted to have a great digital version of your campaign map but lacked the skill and know-how to translate your vision into reality?  Well we at the Labyrinth are here to help one lucky person make their dream come true!  That's right we are going to give away a free custom made map to one of our lucky readers.  Our rules are slightly different than last year's contest, so please read carefully.

Entry:
Entry to this contest is simple.  There are only thee requirements: 
  1. You comment on this post stating that you want to enter the contest and describing the subject of the map that you want (world, kingdom, dungeon, town, or etc) in 100 words or less.  
  2. You must be a follower of this blog when you Enter via Comment
  3. We must have a way to contact you (Since you are a follower this is pretty simple, just don't disable every means of contacting you!)

It really is that simple!  Entry will be open for one week at which time we will select the best entry and furnish one lucky person with a great custom map.

So now you are probably asking yourself, "What if I win?  How is this going to work?"  Well if you are our winner we will contact you through your Google profile.  You then have five days to respond and accept your prize.  That's when the fun begins!  Communication will take place back and forth so that we get an idea of  what the map should look like, what colors to use, name locations, etc.  We will furnish the winner with working versions leading up to the final version to make sure we are on the right track and the winner is happy with the progress.

The map will be the property of the winner with the artist(s) retaining the right to display them in their portfolio only.  Finally, we will show the finished version (with watermark) on this site so everyone can see how it came out.


To enter the contest please make your submission in the comments section of the original post.  Best of luck to all!

Game of Thrones Season 2 Trailer

This trailer actually premiered on Sunday, but for some reason I haven't been able to post it.  It's a short teaser that features a cool voice over from Stannis.

Free Continent Map (With Bonus Blank Inn Map!)

Posted by Labyrinthian in , ,

Here is a Continent Map for you.  Like all of our Free Map Monday Maps, this map is 100% free for your personal use. It is devoid of city/town markers, mountains, forests, or anything else which leaves you free to add anything you want to the map with ease. Please feel free to leave thoughts on this map or the series of free maps in general in the comments section or email us by clicking on the "Email Us" scroll in the far right hand column.

Enjoy!


I was messing around with an online tabletop program and made an inn map to drop tokens onto and test the program out.  As a bonus, just in case anyone can get some use out of it, I've included that map below. 


Neverland Premieres Tonight

Posted by Labyrinthian in ,

Syfy's Neverland premieres tonight at 9pm est.  It looks pretty great, and with Walking Dead on its midseason break there is no reason not to tune in. 

For those of you who don't know about Neverland check out the trailer below. 


Arya's New Look

Posted by Labyrinthian in , ,



Maisie Williams who plays Arya in the HBO's adaption of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is nothing short of awesome.  If you don't believe me watch this video where she discusses Arya's new look for season 2 of Game of Thrones.



I couldn't help but chuckle about how she not only reads what fans say online, but goes out of her way to prove them wrong.  That's the Arya spirit.  Playing Arya is one of the more difficult jobs on the show, in my estimation, but the casting people really struck gold with Maisie Williams. 

Now if only they could find a new Sansa...
