    Default The Velaedin Empire

    This is the regional level of zoom for the world I'm building. The Velaedin Empire consists of seven duchies, ruled from an eighth central district.

    The style is based on a great tutorial by Ironmetal, and inspired heavily by Ramah's Vaniya map.

    Done almost exclusively with the Gimp, with text processing in Photoshop.

    An excellent map, bro. The colors and text really do it for me...they always do...and you have done yours superbly. The biggest compliment I can give is this...snagged a copy for my inspiration folder.

    The only thing I don't like about this map is, that I didn't make it. He he (smirk) Seriously though, great work.
