Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Blessed Yule and all that everybody.

For the year-end bridging prompt I'm going to do a semi-assignment prompt. I'll link this collection below, and you can either pick one or ask me to pick one for you when you sign up. No bonus or penalty either way.

And what are we dealing with? Well, we've done a lot of prompts on aspects of the core of nerdery that is Dungeons and Dragons, but there's one aspect we haven't touch yet: the map. So here's a bunch of funky old maps:

In addition to the usual rules against poetry, erotica, fanfic, political screeds, etc, one more for this week: No historical fiction . Do something more creative with your maps. Be inspired by it rather than going literal. SciFi, Fantasy, or anything set in the present is fine.

1000 words. Toxx for 500 extra.

And in the holiday spirit, when you sign up you may optionally link to one of your older stories and, if you don't fail the week, I'll crit it too.
