The goals of this competition were all over the place, but I was able to grasp an idea of "Evil Sea People" luring in tourists to a resort island, only to capture, eat, and experiment on them. The "Puzzle" was a built-in murder mystery, where travelers are disappearing one-by-one. As for "Constant Battle" and a "Place of Power", I decided to combine the two as a unstoppable portal leaking in monsters who the sea people must fight back to control their claimed territory and prey. The whole place was built off of ruins of an "Ancient Civilization", allowing map editors to add secret passages, traps, and more.
