Hey Folks,

some of you may have seen bits of the map I've been working on for quite some time (see here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?5447-Harogard-new-Version/page2&highlight=kargath)). And finally I'm done with it:

(CLICK ON IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW ... BUT CAUTION: IT REALLY IS LARGER!)
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1194813/kargath/karte_guild_thumb.jpg (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1194813/kargath/karte_guild_guild.jpeg)

The Map was entirely done with Inkscape and Gimp on an UBUNTU Operating System.

Also I want to make clear that this map is to the greatest part a comission for the LARP-Group I am part of. Followingly there are features of the geography that I had to bring down on this map gritting my teeth for I knew they're sooo disregarding things like river policy ... Nevertheless: Be sure that I did all I could to persuade the responsible persons on that particular matter.

And by the way ... we didn't steel the name "Kargath" from Wow ... we had it first. :)

The link - she be broken cap'n. Looks pretty good, though.

An excellent piece of work. All the fonts colors, symbols and other elements mix perfectly with each other, nothing seems stylisitically out of place.

Sehr schöne Karte!
Könnte es sein, dass es einen Typo hat (fehlender Buchstabe), oder muss das wirklich "Kronrotektorat Königswacht" heissen?! ;)

Das ist in der Tat ein Typo ... einer von mehreren ... Danke fürs Bescheid sagen.

A true eye candy! The colors fit well, not too bright, wow, I'm really amazed! It looks like it could appear in a game box right now.

Only little suggestion: give the grid a mask with a few pixels space around the fonts (Witwenturm for example). But its still readable well, so don't mind. :)

Very nice map wally! The compass rose is a bit too prominent for my taste, but that's not important. Well done!

ASAMOF I found quite a dozen of Typos ... also I decided, that I want to redo the Mountains and Forests with new selfmade brushes.

Im deeply impressed by overall quality of this map and brilliant accuracy of lines and other things. Total harmony from one end to another. "Old map effect" also very good, nice for eye and spirit of adventure. Absolutly great work!

So ... what do I have to do to get this map awarded? :)

You don't get an award just for finishing a map, although maybe we should have a nice shiny button since so many folks never finish. Also, you don't go around asking for an award. If your peers and we CLs deem it worthy then we give it.

just asking ^^

this was ment more like a "What does one actually have to do to achieve an award" kind of question

I've finished the second edition ... I had to correct a couple of typos but I used the opportunity to redo all mountains, forests and the whole coloring.
Hope you like it:
