Marathon Infinity MapMaking Contest

You may be a seasoned cartographer already, or maybe you can't even spell "map". Regardless, with Forge and Anvil you now have in hand the best tools for making Marathon maps, and once you get into it you'll be amazed at how much fun it is, and how much finesse it can take to make a map that is both great looking and fun to play.
