    Edit4: Added the second gameplay of Gorgonage's Clash in Mountain Valley. That were all games I could record.
    I have some replays of games I couldn't fully participate. I also could record those, as well maybe.

    How about melee map? Not really a melee, it's like meele-RPG. You play as a peasant (or any worker) and your race will be controlled by AI. You help your faction to win by being useful diligent worker. Sounds interesting?

    Good luck!

    Doesn't somebody mind to explain how this challenge work? I still don't understand after reading the main post. So, are we creating a map within 24 hours, after the timer is started, and should submit it before the timer ends? What if I post my map nowhere during the timer? Will you guys still play it, maybe in the next Funmap Evening? And about rolling the genre, I still don't understand.
    What are you rolling there? The genre of map we should make or the genre that you will play in the Funmap Evening?

    The way no one responded to my last post is quite pissing me, especially the way WaterKnight ignoring my post. LOL Guys, I'm trying to take part here but no one is even willing to help. But I will let it go for now. :)

    Yes.

    This is no contest. The challenge is imposed on yourself. So even if you submit your entry a bit later, we do not mind. But the Funmap Evening will already start half an hour after the timer has expired, so you may miss parts if you want to participate or it may get in line. It has been quite common for the earlier rounds that maps still get hotfixed after the deadline.

    And again, we always encourage the mapmakers to show up at the Funmap Evening

    footmen wars and misc (anything that does not fit the other categories) were rolled. You are supposed to pick at least one of those genres and realize it in your map. Same for the keywords.

    So me for example will build an underground footmen wars variant with mining crystals as one objective.

    Sorry, I did not remember your post, was in a hurry to post the announcement. Melee is not represented as a genre at the moment but as said above, misc is a wild card for whatever is not in the list. Also it does not have to be pure anyway. You are to incorporate the genre but it may as well be a mixture.

    edit: Here is the ending timer.

    This is what I got so far. Feedback plz.

    Matched genre: misc
    Matched keyword: crystal (there are ice crystal tiles in some parts :p)

    I gonna write some descriptions here. In progress...

    Your role in this map is a worker (peasant, peon, wisp, and acolyte). Your job is to become useful worker to help your faction win. But compared to other workers, you have some special abilities:
    - You can pick and use items
    - You have exp and level
    - You inherit all abilities of normal units of your faction race. However, your faction need to research those abilities before you can use it.
    - You have some attributes (damage, armor, mana, and hp) which can be upgraded using attribute points (not working atm).

    Some other hints:
    - You can determine your faction's race in the lobby, while your own race does not affect anything.
    - Currently, you can only gain XP by gathering resources for your faction. Every level you will get 3 attribute points, every 3 level you will get 1 skill point.
    - You can buy items but using your personal properties (gold and lumber)
    - The game is totally playable without any other player.
    - You have limited privileges since you are just worker. You are unable to build structures on your own.
    - If you are undead, your acolyte has special ability to gather lumber from trees.
    - Try to switch between team color filter (the button is beside the minimap) until you find the most fitting one.

    To-do:
    - Skill learning.
    - Faction Quests, merits, and titles
    - On combat EXP income
    - Special build. You will be able to build some defensive structures but using your own properties.

    For some reason, I occasionally lose control over worker, and can't tell him what to do for a while. I'm not sure if something like that is suppose to happened.

    Click Idle Worker icon to navigate you to your unit. Hint: change Team Color Filter Mode to 1 (button is beside the minimap) to differentiate your units color. :)

    Crap! I forgot to edit after the Undead testings. Faction 1 can only become Undead atm. :(
