    Seems like it, contest should end in 24 hours or so

    I like this one! There’s particularly a lot of potential for many pre colonial countries.

    Yes, as of right now. Does anyone else have an entry in progress? I expect to post the new round in about 34 hours.

    Wait....if it survived longer than OTL, how come fantasy maps are allowed.

    Fantasy doesn't mean it has to be set in a Tolkienish universe. If I have the time to post one, mine will be a fantasy map about Hawaii for instance.

    I’m sure a map that shows a continuation of an established country that canonically gets destroyed in a fantasy or sci fi work would get accepted

    You've got a couple of weeks to figure something out - maybe there's another way to get an image file of it?

    Not really, and it honestly isn't very creative beyond the form, so making it with Gimp would be of no interest ... and I wouldn't want to ruin the physical form to get a good scan ...

    An idea could be to put it on a decent setting and have a "photo of an exhibition from an ATL" kind of thing. It would certainly be very creative. We can always use more diversity on these things

    I have a couple of ideas for some mofts:
    Double-Sided Coin: Show a war/cold war map between 2 nations with almost identical ideologies (like between soviet and american stratocracies)
    Death of a Bachelor: A map of a nation that has finally (re) united with another nation
    It's Always Sunny: A map where you have to show a nation, or a part of the nation, on the Equator, or close by
    In the Shadows: A map of a nation that has always been less important than it's neighbor, until that neighbor collapses. you have to show the aftermath of them becoming a major nation.

    In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king: Show a country that is a major regional power, not because it is particularly powerful, but because its neighbors are exceptionally weak.

    Show a country along side what their perception of the known world is, preferably done in a style reminiscent of old maps of the world.

    About 12 hours left for anyone who wants to enter MotF 208. In the meantime, I have posted the entry for Map of the Month 7: The Way I See It! This extended round will run through the month of December and into the new year.

    Does it have to be a country? Can it be a first-level subdivision?

    Does the second map need to be of the entire world? Could we have a map of a particular neighbouring region or even continents?

    First of all, congratulations to @Višeslav for winning MotF 207 his map of Ukraine and its allies!

    The voting thread for MotF 208 is now posted, so be sure to check that out and vote for your favorite!

    This would be fine, as long as the inhabitants of that province/state/prefecture/etc. have a significantly unique worldview that is reflected in the second map. :)

    The second map does not need to be a complete world map, but it needs to show some portion of the world beyond the country portrayed in the first map. A regional or continent would be fine.
