    Map Centralia - The Holy Centralian Empire and the surrounding lands

    Finally finished! Took some time but I think the result is a fine old-looking map.

    Made in PS, shields and deco elements mainly in Illustrator

    EDIT: As there seems to be a problem with the thumbnail view I post an outgoing image here until the problem is solved.

    Hmm... this might just be a feature map with a bit more story detail in the post...

    This is incredible work. Love the cohesiveness - everything fits so well together. I especially like how the country borders look like someone used a highlighter (very well, I might add - I'd never have such a steady hand ^.^) The icons are perfect, and the geographic features are seamless. Fantastic work; and those coats-of-arms (however your pluralize that) are fantastically well done. Love to see more of this work!

    I'll have to think about a story for this map.

    Again, this is one these maps that automatically get one to think about its story, its people and its cities. Most excellent work!

    Thanks, Legiazus. Perhaps I'll come up with a short timeline for this map.

    Info

    btw, I've started a second map with the Centralia theme, this time a strategic view of the armies, here in the WIP section

    As the thumbnail preview doesn't work in the first post, I placed an image of the map there.

    I think that maybe the boundaries might need to be a little more distinct to use this as a game board.

    Maybe. But I didn't want too strong colors, as this would not really fit with the general old look.
