The end result of the first attempt at...something. I called it Kelos because it popped into my head and that's as good a reason as any.

I'm nigh artistically illiterate so the mountains were very tough. I'm sure there are rampant shading errors. As for the trees, well they might be a little monotonous but it was all I could really muster.

Shading in different "biomes" was a little confusing, and I'm not sure if it worked as well as I'd have liked overall. Maybe next time I'll make it a tad more civilized and put in some towns and what not, roads, etc.

Hue-wise, I really like the old feel, which begs the question as to how to go about drawing roads on one hand and differentiating them from rivers, etc. I guess it'd be a matter of scale/line thickness...

The rune titling is just for posterity, though it probably just detracts from the map overall.
