The City of Trosta

Once the eastern most stronghold of Arkhosia, it fell during the final skirmishes with Bael Turath. Later restored by Nerath, it has maintained it's independence since the fall of the last great empire. This is my first attempt at a city map. I used Gidde's hand drawn maps for the artistically challenged tutorial for color/texture, The buildings are a brush set that I got from I'm not sure where (i'll update if I can find again).

At the moment, its somewhat difficult to read the map in terms of what the various lines and shapes mean. Right now, the roads and squares/plazas look a bit like a complex system of ponds and watercourses which is a little confusing. Also, the buildings look a bit divorced from the roads in many places which also contributes to making the roads look like something else. I think if you had your buildings more closely follow the roads in terms of placement (possibly added more buildings as well) it would help make the map clearer.
