Looks pretty cool. The font's a little difficult to read, though.

Maybe it's not a physical map, but it is a relationship map, so I say it counts!

Concur with Gidde, though. The stylized font is okay for the title, but it's not legible enough to be used so heavily elsewhere. Also, watch the contrast between some of the darker colors and the black text; that also hurts legibility.

I like the paper background, but it's pretty low-resolution, so it's gotten all blurry from being upsampled. You might be able to improve it with judicious use of sharpening and some noise, but it might be simpler just to create a new parchment. There's a pretty good tutorial in our tutorials forum by RobA for parchment creation in the Gimp. It should be possible to adapt it to Photoshop.

Thats really cool. Some of the fonts are still kind of hard to read but still cool :)

Not sure what sarrow is but usually it's sorrow and despair. Maybe it's a depressed bone marrow, heh. I kill me. :)
