Hey There,
For creators interested here something for you !
Note that it's open to everyone, even if you're first map ever, you're welcome to join the contest :)

The winner will be designated by random draw.

THE CAMPAIGN : https://forums.solasta-game.com/forum/dungeon-en-fr-crown-of-the-dungeon-maker

ARHCIVES :
CONTEST CLOSED
- Now we will review/walktrough the dungeons proposed.
- Then The RandomDraw will designate the winner among the participations. (Another key for a dlc will be won it's yet to be decide if it will be randomly draw as well or voted by creators and/or players.)
- In the End, a final build of the CODM campaign will be made (possibly live streamed as well for some part) and all maps will be mixed. I'll add another 1 from myself.

Final Build of CODM Campaign :
There will be many steps for this process that i can resume like this (note that some steps may happen at the same time) :
1 - Collect info from original maps /
2 - build the story (trying to keep the most i can but make link between things. this may need modifications though.)
3 - Story check (with SimulationCommander)
3 - re-create encounters to fit with party level up and themes(still trying to keep the intent of creator.)
4 - Beta-test encounters and make Improvement (by silverquick)
5 - Check for decoration and mapping (like fire camp and stuff like that)
6 - Write the in-game story
7 - Check for In game story corrections
8 - Create the campaign stuff like pictures zip files nexus-steam-mod.io pages and descriptions etc.. + Upload
9 - French Translation + Upload
10 - Start a new contest :)
Note that all original maps will be also proposed on Nexus via a single zip file.

I love this idea! Even if we just flood the world with playable mini-adventures, I'm all about it!

Somehow Silverquick will turn one small map into an entire campaign. ;)

Lol I could, 

But I figured I'd bow out of this one since I think he's trying to encourage new module makers so it would be kind of unfair of me to throw my hat into the ring.

Eh, it's going to be awarded by random draw anyway. Might as well give everybody something to strive for!

Well if that's the case sure I can throw something together fairly quickly that would be high quality.

Well I whipped something up real quick tonight, its actually pretty good,

Not really playtested that much and its off the top of my head. I only tested with the Default party so I imagine any party should be able to get through it. I'll turn it over to SirMadness tomorrow.

Hey ya ! :)
@SimulationCommander Yeah I think that you'll be happy to know that i received a map from the Silverquick ! As I am :) And i'm waiting for yours now :p

As Silverquick said the main goal is to encourage players to use the DM a little + help to promote the future DLC as well and the random draw is here to "not judge" new creators and let them try and do what they can with comfort

But I'll try my best to provide another key with a "jury" electing the "best map" - This will depend on how many participation I'll have for this contest, if there is only 3 well.. if there is a Lot i'll do, That i'll know only at the end of the dead line (20th september.) Already asked him but Silverquick may be part of this jury though this particular jury/key thing is still a "stand by". (and still need to think about what can be the points to check on a map like "decoration / interactions / creativity etc.. I don't really know for the moment what can be a "good overview")

I've never done anything like that before but maybe I'll give it a shot :)

Thinking about this a little further, it WOULD be possible to set up an "arena" style battleground where you could set up chests for each level. Opening the chest would start a level-appropriate fight. With a campfire, I don't see why you couldn't just have a single map grind from 1-10!

Alright I'm almost finished but I can't figure a couple things out:

How do I get the game to start up with a blank screen to put text on? A prologue to the adventure. Also, how do I make it so you export your characters instead of just having the game go back to the main screen when the adventure is over?

Once I fix those I think I'm ready to submit.

I think most people use the Entry Activator > Activated Lore (modal) to get that first screen of introduction text

You export your characters by leaving an Exit with destination 0 (it doesn't go to another map). Taking your party through that gets the game over screen with stats and Update (export).

Thanks, I'll try that out :)

After I posted I realized it wouldn't let me export because I was using the playtest party *doh*

When I ran through it on newly created characters it allowed me to export as normal :)

It's alive!!!

Just one more pass to finish up the wordsmithing and I'm all set to submit :)

Thanks for all the help, you guys! I never would have tried anything like this without a little push :)
