That way there would be a map of the world with a view of every kingdoms buildings on it. I am not sure how to do that but if you could somehow hover over the selected square and see a picture with a link it would be a good idea
Wow, that's impressive! Although I'm pretty certain (someone correct me if i'm wrong) the general consensus was that we were going to create a new story, of which you can be a part. :) But if you could get it posted up here I'd love to read it. :)
Yep, that's the idea! The ability to add a creation to a map via link, located in your chosen faction's lands, would be very cool! We could possibly do it on Flickr. First, you would get it on Flickr, then you can add a note to the map photo giving the location of a creation on the map we end up choosing. :)

If we had one person who was our "representative" to EB, they could stay in the loop as far as monthly contests and run the CC thread. Once a contest deadline closes, that person could simply post a summary of results and a link to our thread on the GoH forum.

I don't think we need to have wizards who are casting kingdom-wide force fields or raining down meteor showers to smite their foes, but if someone wants their sig-fig to be an orc/werewolf/centaur/etc or if someone wants to have a castle headed by a warlock that's staffed by an undead army, I don't want to crimp their creativity.
That's true. The benefits of being linked to them alone would be large, and I think we could still do things our own way. Yes, Exactly! Wizard lead rampages were what I didn't want to see! :P Although I still don't like the idea of undead armies. Zombies\skeletons aren't authentic to what I believe we are trying to achieve. I don't think we will be crimping to much creativity by not going so much towards wizards or undead things.
