10 Ways that Dungeon Maps can be Art

  1. Taking you to another reality
  2. Showing your own reality in another way
  3. Resonating in tune with cultural traditions
  4. Throwing cultural traditions into sharp contrast
  5. A craft that requires a certain effort and technique to master
  6. An opportunity for the artist to show off a technique that's theirs and theirs alone
  7. A symbolic language for allegory or metaphor
  8. A vehicle for expressing ideas
  9. An living, evolving tradition that changes, advances, and grows over time
  10. A very special kind of art: art you can play

I havent, but maybe that's a thought. I consider myself kind of a beginner at both, because I'm always learning new things. Situation creation in particular is a subject that never gets exhausted.
