Yay! with the varied selection of maps available I'm surprised this got chosen. Thanks for the honour. Must try and outdo myself now...

This is now the second of vorropohaiah's maps to receive a Cartographers Choice Award here at the Guild, and it is easy to understand why. A lot of time and care went into crafting the rich detailed heraldry and all of the lovely hand drawn elements.

Congrats, Vorropohaiah! This is definitely my favourite map in the new 'batch' of CC awards. It sounds almost like a backhanded compliment to say I especially love the heraldry, but it really isn't. Well done!
btw: how did you do the heraldry?

couldnt be simpler - i just found a batch of free custom-shapes that fitted the heraldry theme and used them on a shield background i made. add some colours and finish off with a subtle bevel/emboss and some noise.btw: how did you do the heraldry?
Wow, Love the map... very nice... Is it bad to say that my favorite part is the torn section, bottom center... LOVE IT!
Off the hook amazing.....
This map is absolutely spectacular. I wish you the best of luck in outdoing it, that's going to be a heck of a challenge.
