An island full of aquaphobes and sea-fearers. The governor proves his mettle by living in a boat-like house on the beach. Few others venture beyond the town walls.

Cordgrass Island

by Jallie (Midnight), a.k.a. Bunch (Viridian)

On this salt marsh, land is valuable. Competitors share workspace in the common trades; the city fathers dismantled ships that ran aground to expand the dock for additional buildings.

Visit http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=17403

Although I'm afraid that you won't be able to make an island fast enough for this contest. ;) So you'll also want this thread: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=14060 where you can post any island that you make and get it commented on.

My goodness, you're the most patient contest I've run. After lots of fiddling, I actually can't get my editor to work. But the one at the office does. Results soon!

By the way, Tomyris's links aren't working for me.

Well, I know I didn't want to seem too pushy. I've had no problem with the editor at all and I even redownloaded it accidentally on top of the old one so guess I just got lucky.

As for patience itself, I've checked this forum every 10 minutes to see if you posted yet...so I guess I'm not THAT patient...hehehe.

Ok, Monday I will be travelling to NYC and won't arrive there till evening so I'll just have to check in the evening.

I put Tomyris's files on my site, in the meanwhile - I don't know what causes the problems, but would be a shame if he missed the contest due to some issues with his site.
(Warning! These are just the ones I downloaded for having a look at them, when the links worked. Everything should be fine, and I didn't edit them, but I think I'd better add that for clarification.)

Wow, thank you so much. The links are working fine for me, so I don't know what the problem could be. In case it's something with direct linking, the fakey page they're on is here. (Although if the ones you put up were from this thread, they're the most recent ones, so that'll work too.)

They didn't work for me, too, when Nemo posted, and now they're working again. Strange. Umm, I think I'll just leave my post up there, in case your site hiccups again.
Did you check if I posted the right files? Should be your final versions, but I know that I got at least one unfinished version you posted in the Discussion thread somewhere on my hard drive. I'm 99% sure I posted the right ones, but as you can see, I'm not always paying enough attention... *g*
