    Meh, I have so much to study that I didn't had any time at all. Maybe next time...

    Maybe I should have made the rules more clear :vw_death:

    Should have put them in the quest log and messaged them at the start of the game.

    Also I think there was a bug where windwalk interferes with vertex coloring.

    __

    The thing that I am most annoyed at myself about not including is a message that pops up when you die for the first time, telling you to touch a paladin to respawn. Otherwise people think that the game is broken when they try to collect acolytes and cannot.

    I did read the rules from the loading screen but, from a game design standpoint, passive blocks of texts are not reliable. You have to understand the gameplay by playing, which is done by highlighting and separating good from negative effects. When something as decisive as dying, change of objective happens, I think it would have been a good idea to use just in time alerts as you said like "Your got your soul sucked out by touching a Dreadlord. See a Paladin to regain your life.". But I do not know if doing this first time only is enough.

    It does. A unit cannot be vertex-colored while windwalking/invisible.

    No date specified yet.

    Any rules of some sort or is it just a "make a map"?

    By WaterKnight's request, it will not be a challenge like we did previously. Join chat and we will discuss theme/rules, but it will not be official.

    If you're not interested anymore, understood.

    Hi,

    Since we are not doing an official map making challenge anymore, please see here for the replacement fun challenge:

    Funmap Evening Event

    So far there's about 5 of us, as far as I can tell.
