For the good of all of us.Except the ones who are dead.
It took some digging, but I found a super-handy post with a lot of fantastic information on map-making in general.

As one of your judges for round 2 (and as a cartographer), the kind of thing I would expect to see in your text description includes (but is not limited to):
The technical details (elevation indicators, scale, secret doors, windows, trap doors) do not need to be in the text description.
One of the other things I will be looking at on the map is: how fun will this be to run an encounter in, both as a GM and as a player? Are there fun variations in terrain that I can use as choke points? Ambush sites? Is all just a flat expanse? Can I use elevation to my advantage? Is the rogue going to be able to sneak attack somebody here? Will I long for the days of bouncing lightning bolts?
Okay, maybe not that last two, but you get the idea. If the battlemap comes out, I want it to be fun and memorable for both sides of the table.
Removed a couple of posts and their replies. If this is a topic you feel strongly about and want slaves removed as a character's purchase option in the Organized Play Program, please contact the campaign staff.
Exactly. Different classes require a different approach to a situation. :)
It's almost like I planned it that way...

My favorite part of this blog post: "Paizo time"
The longer I've worked here, the more I'm convinced that the Paizo offices are caught in a Maelstrom-fueled eddy where time flows differently. Sadly, it often works against us, rather than for us.I'm still trying to get the proteans to understand that.
are Archetypes of non-occult classes allowed, assuming they are from the Occult Adventures book? (such as the Psychic Detective Investigator Archetype or the Psychic Bloodline for Sorceror)
No—the classes must be from Occult Adventures.
Wait....wouldn't the old Dragon Magazines for 3.5 technically count as "Paizo published material" in this regard?
As much as I want to say yes, I'm going to have to go with "no"—we don't own the IP on that and we can't reproduce any of the content legally.
The original version of Rasputin had his own unique Oracle mystery. Can our version have its own unique archetype/other sort of Occult modification?
No new mechanics—statblock only!
As far as point buy goes, follow Brandon's lead here.
"As long as his CR meets 17" is my ruling.
The second issue is gear. By-the-book 96,000 for level 18 NPC? Ol' Ras above has about 115,000 worth.
Available money is equal to the value of his equipment in his original stat block.

"Cover credit" means: Is your name on the cover of the book? If it's not (and you meet the rest of the criteria), you can enter.

When I first wrote that bucket list, it was in 2012, a bit before I heard about Throne of Night. Mostly my thoughts for it would be for the exiles to establish their own kingdom, building on a few tidbits from the Second Darkness AP.
