Uuuurgh. I'm kind of stuck. I'm heading west slowly but steady however I am starting to struggle a bit. The lore is going very well, we're writing more and more. It's just this map that is missing so much and I can't come up with something amazing right now, maybe if I post a WIP thread I'll think of something epic.

As usual; extreamly WIP.

Why are you stucked? What's your problem right now?

Btw, as I already said I'm not a big fan of the shadow around the coast that makes the lands looks like floating a bit...

I'll work on that Maxie.

Right now I need to come up with something good to "fill" the bottom-right side of the map, south of the big forest. I need to come up with a landscape there that looks nice.

Here's a different style on the map just for you while I work on the sea.

If you dont know exactly where you're going, it's a pretty good idea ro remove textures/colors to work imo. Well i dont know the settings of your world but moutains, hills, grass, rocky areas, swamps, plateau can be some alternatives to fill up the empty spaces.

Might try to get some grassland in there somehow, cheers Max.

What I would suggest you Thordred is when you start a map is having a whole idea of how it's build (as I previously, also depends on your campaign settings if it's a map for RPGaming). Best way to do it is to sketch it (even quick and bad looking sketch :D ) so that you can see if your elements and terrains are coherent, well located or harmonious to look at. Well this would probably be a step on a next one :D

Yeah, we're trying to get the lore for that nation written so I think I will have more to go on soon.
