If MMAN's vote is for Lost tales of Britain, it really equals steampunk now. :2thumbsup:

Please, add some new animations to Lara ok? Faster shimmey and climbing. Lots of people may make that levels. And choose nice outfit for Lara ;) Not classic because it's very old and ugly.

Well, I just voted for Lost Tales of Britain. :2thumbsup: Steampunk got me all excited at first, because I immediately thought of Richard (Dick) and the kind of levels people of his calibre would create, but then I thought that you could get some equally bad levels and as someone else commented, you do want to be able to play them one after the other. (I'm still playing the Venice ones, since life, the universe and everything gets in the way of playing these days - at this rate, they'll probably last me until this years Advent Calendars!)

Well, a competition will only be as strong as the ideas and skills of the participants permit, so I don't buy Richard's argument - you could just as well have a plethora of sucky Tales of Britain or Sagas of the North levels as of the Steampunk kind.

By all means vote for the setting you would prefer to see, not by some esoteric prediction which one will produce more enjoyable levels.

As for the vote changing - let's stay away from that as it can get very confusing easily. Since the voting goes on till the 9th of May, no one had to vote right away anyway and could've just watched the discussion play out and make an educated choice on that day.

If MMAN can change his vote, change mine from Sagas of the North to Steampunk then, to keep the balance :P

Has much I liked the Steampunk theme, I decided not to choose it because I feel that ever since it started BTB has always had themes closely linked to the official Tomb Raider Games. That left me with A - Sagas of the North - clearly inspired by TRU and B - Lost Tales of Britain - somewhat inspired by TRC (and here and there on other games... TRLA comes to mind). Since I have never enjoyed that second environment too much I choose Sagas of the North.

I go for steampunk as this calls for very interesting levels and gameplay. The picture of Britain looks nice but not so much for the building blocks of the editor. I'm already having fantasies about clockworks and machinery :)
