Here is what i have so far for the "Eastern" Continent, i haven't done rivers yet as you can see but i will post that when i have it done so i can get them passed by the river police :) haven't totally finalized where i am going to put everybody but i have planned an ancient gnomish civilization at war with demon worshipping intellegent Ogres (Oni), musket wielding human and dragonborn samurai fighting a Mind-flayer communist slave state, Cannon-weilding Ogres roaming the open savanna, Hobgoblin Mongols (sounds cliche but i am working on it), Thai/Buddhist Elves in a tropical rain forest. Czarist "northerners" that were once a far colony of the Dragonborn/Human/Dwarven Republic from the "western continent" that lost contact and developed its own culture and sect/church similar to the Roman Catholic and Orthadox split. anywho here are my first steps.

Something about the trees is throwing me off. The terrain looks fabulous but the trees look too .. crisp I think is the word I'm looking for. I can't quite tell if they're beveled or if they have a drop shadow. Maybe blur them a bit to help 'em sink into the terrain more naturally. Otherwise it looks good.

@ Steel General: Thanks!

@ Ascension: Yea i was thinking the same thing, or maybe a larger soft-round brush... a couple test maps i did of a smaller scale didnt have the same issue but i cant remember if i had to blur them... and i forgot to add a drop shadow... that may help. Good eye thanks!

Fractal Terrains to generate the random height map, Wilbur to erode it "realistically", and then Gimp (or photoshop) to make it "fit into" the map.
