Ok, hello all! I'm new to the Cartographers Guild and I would like to present my work. I also would like to hear opinion about it. I'm sure it's not perfect.

It's got a really nice 'busy' feel to it (lots to explore) and I like the oversized symbols. Nice use of the standard CC3 symbol set.

looks good - and I agree with rav, the crowded/busy feel fits nicely :)

Thank you. But I still feel like something is missing.

well, you don't have many rivers, and at least one of those you have goes from ocean to ocean - which a river doesn't do. :)

Well, I at first found the 'busy' feel to be...well...rather busy, but I agree, feels very Might and Magic-ish.

What you 'are' missing is some of the power of CC3, that of sheet effects. There are no glows, shadows, edge fades, etc, which I believe is one of the big powers of CC3 over CC2. Right now, it simply looks like a CC2 map with CC3 symbols. Also, there is no legend nor a *cough-cough* scale bar :(
