    Thank you all very much. I put over 50 hours into this darn map and my will sort of began to ebb away so that's the main reason for it not being as diversified in areas as it could be. That and I'm not really creative when it comes to architecture. Hopefully it fulfills its secondary purpose to inspire others to always be awesome. In the end, I do it all for you guys to maybe, hopefully, spark something inside and inspire you to epicness. I tell ya one thing, though - this is the third poster size map that I've done in the past few months (2 commissions) and working that large for that long really drains ya. I need to do a city map and get my sanity back.

    Great job Ascension, really inspiring. Noticed some words in sort of Portuguese, Spanish or other Latino languages. Is that true or I'm going nuts??!?!

    La marisma de muerte is Spanish (I think) for swamp of death.

    This is just outstanding, Big A. Definitely in my top five fave maps of all time.

    Excellent art, excellent topography, and excellent settlement naming (picking names all from one source always gives a good unity.)
