I didn't get around to adding a few minor things to my entry (WIP Thread) before the challenge closed, so here's the final-and-I-won't-touch-it-again map:
I always like flavor text. Good stuff, man.
Nice map dude. It would be cool so see a follow-up map from the second expedition too.
It's a really nice and clear map, and the reader/writer in me likes all the text too. My only very minor gripe is I think those lines pointing to the points of interest would be better in a different colour or with a stroke. As they cross the black outer map border, they lose a tiny bit of clarity which I guess is I find most noticeable because the rest of it is so clearly defined.
Thanks guys. - Larb, you make an excellent point about those lines. I have an idea on how to fix that - will try it tonight when I am back home.
The Gateway text has a typo. The word "followed" is missing the "d".
