Welcome to National DROD Architecture Month 7! Which nation it's for has never been decided, and which month it's in has never been consistent.

This is an irregularly-held event where participants attempt to make one room a day for a month. What you do with the rooms afterwards is entirely up to you.

Don't worry too much about the quality of the rooms, just try out any idea you have. The point is to just get the creative juices flowing. In fact, don't even worry too much about getting a room a day done - just see how many you can manage.

The first official day of this NaDRODArchMo is August 1, but if you want to start early, you can feel free to do that too.

I've started making some rooms.

At the end of August, does everyone's rooms go into a compilation?

What generally happens is everyone makes a post with a hold attached and replaces the attachment as new rooms are added, on whatever schedule they please.

There's no expectation of a compilation or publishing - the rooms are yours to do whatever you'd like with. So far, the only published hold produced specifically as a NaDRODArchMo project is my March Madness. There are other holds that have used rooms made during NaDRODArchMo, though.

That said, if multiple participants want to put their rooms together in a compilation, there's nothing stopping them.

It's looking like I'll be back at my main computer before or shortly after the start of the month, so I'll be participating in this.

I plan on making rooms for several of my stalled-out holds in progress, so I won't be joining any compilation at the end of this event. If something like that does happen, I'll maybe throw some unused rooms your way though.

Time to formally kick off the month! I've made a room. Maybe later I'll fill in empty space for walls, but for now, I'm just putting in the main puzzle.

I'll be editing this post every few days with a new attachment and comments on the new rooms I make.

I will join this NaDRODArchMo trying to do something interesting. I will edit the hold along some notes for each room here.

Finished the NaDRODArchMo sort of, problably will not promote the hold to HA although will edit the hold fixing broken rooms and checking that the hold is conquerable (only have doubts in 1E and 3N2W) and then left here for preservation.
Thanks for everyone who played or tried my hold, hope you enjoyed it.

I moved my NaDRODArchMo hold to a separate thread to help keep things organised.
