That sounds very good to me... I've been playing around with making some of my
own maps. Most of them are based on solving puzzles/gathering clues rather
than going around killing everything. Just thought I'd mention it in case
anyone is interested in looking over my maps... I admit I'm not a very good
map designer, so I'd love to have some feedback (even if my maps aren't "good
enough" to be part of the standard distribution).
