Tamien's links don't work for me, but her instructions do. I get a big map if I take jalapeno_dude's map link and chop off the "?" part of the url.

Neither the new links nor the instructions work for me. The spoilerboxed images don't either. Teeniness abounds. Maybe somebody who's able to get the large versions could imgur them?

Tamien, I can barely detect the bolding in your quote but I think your idea of bolding for appeal is excellent so I'm going to make things colours in addition to bolding.

But some of the things I didn't bold were because I didn't understand the references. Heart of Darkness? Casablanca? Like, I've heard these phrases but they don't expand into plotlines in my head.

I can't say I feel that strongly about any of the marked, because I need to get a better feel of what we are likely to get before I start to get attached.
