    yes, it's not too much, I limited it to those which were the most mentioned and discussed, while I also not included those that were to similar to the latest themes.

    I voted for Horror/Nightmare, purely because I like the idea better than the others.
    Evolution though doesn't sound too bad.

    Horror/Nightmare, duh. I mean that was one if my ideas, plus itr's one of the widest and easiest themes from all listed... well maybe except for racial settlements, but that doesn't sounds so creative...

    One of YOU'RE ideas? Look at the first page.

    Silly tleno, always thinks everything is his idea.
    Anyway, I'm going off-topic with that.

    Keep the votes coming!

    I completely agree with this dude concerning the evolution theme.
    I'd rep him but for any apparent reason I can't.

    Frankly put, I probably wont join if "Horror/Nightmare" get's picked. Honestly, I find it foolish to have such a narrow, specified and uncreative theme for a terrain contest, artists need their freedom...

    Bah..

    I kinda like don't see so much of limitation, I mean it can take place in sci-fi, horror, modern... I kinda can't understand why do you call it narrow. Could you eleborate?

    To my eyes, it seems narrow as to the end of it having to do with "horror." In some way or another it needs to look scary/dark or twisted. The scenery can be what you chose it to be, yes. But then, it has to compliment the feeling of fear and or surprise, horror. And thus narrowing the ideal feel of the terrain down to something that seems very limited for me, in terms of emotional conclusion and overall feel of a terrain.

    Besides, I just dont really like the theme, never been a fan of horror stuff.

    I hate horror too. But I think that's the best of ideas we have for this contest...

    Racial Settlements is by far the most free theme nominated.

    And quite frankly I would actually not leave this matter to be decided by a public poll where half of the voters won't even enter the contest :p

    EDIT: I just noticed that a ":p" just had to be added to make this post slightly more badass.

    A post-apocalyptic theme could be good ~.~
