Actually 19 is my Boroughs, not Venardhi's. It's not quite abandoned, but I'm having a time finding time for it. If someone wants it, I'll relinquish it, but I'd like what little I've put in so far to remain(Winsome Bay, the Stoutling towns, a river or two). I've been really inspired by SeerBlue's work(or that of the carpet orcs), but most of that inspiration is hardly applicable to the Boroughs.
I really need to get on with some of my ideas: the Dwarven city buttoned up under the Barrier Mountains for fear of the plague, the Vampiric Empire growing among the desperate Plague victims across the mountains, the ruins and legends of a vast elven kingdom of old, possibly related to the Plague itself.

Can I have area 2?
Sure. Wait for 7 days and if the original author doesn't answer it's yours.
Just to remind everyone that I still have all the tiles in color and height info too. You don't have to use the height info - thats up to you but its really useful if you can map to fit with the land-sea regions of the color maps so they line up easy. Really we should have had an official set of tiles but there wasn't one. I guess its less of an issue now as you will probably have bordering tiles already mapped to work to.
I would still give an arm and a leg for a blow up image of each region with the river/water stuff generated by FT by NeonKnight.... Either that or a larger version of that projection with the rivers AND the grid overlain in the correct place.

OK, I'm really sorry for sucking a lot. Would it be OK if I worked on region 11? There isn't any indexed thread for it, so I figured I should post here. I'll also PM hans_worst to see if he's OK with it.
Sorry Octopod, I'm afraid Valarian has already taken region 11 (stated further up this thread). Check the whole of this thread to see which ones are still available.
Strike two! OK, got it. Sorry, didn't read page 2 -- although I should have figured there'd already be someone jumping on a nifty-looking peninsula like that.
What about area 15, then? Doesn't look like anyone's touched that one, and there's no thread for that either...
(ETA: If I succeed in claiming this region, can I also please get a contour map of the area from someone who's got good software for doing so?)
