    @Diamond - ah that makes sense. That brings up an odd dichotomy as the grunge (caused by wear or the grain of the paper) should be scale independent - but that's never going to work with a scaling font. Perhaps a little light wear over the top of the whole set of line art in a mask to hint at wear elsewhere? Again, it's a small thing.

    Lovely. Using black only for the radiation symbols really makes them stand out. Nice!

    Thank you, guys.

    I'm trying to avoid any obvious Fallout comparisons, but inevitably it's gonna happen...

    Great map! Looks like a cool setting, too. I'm not really familiar with Fallout, but it seems the whole post-apocalyptic genre was established long before it came along, and is still going strong.

    I think the coastline is way to accurate and detailed, and don't really fit the style that the mountain/hill brushes has established. But it's up to you ofc, I would probably go for a more handdrawn style, tho.

    Sweet stuff, Diamond. Fallout? I had to look up Fallout; my mental echo was that it has a taste of Horseclans about it :-). Yeah, any post-apocalyptic setting is going to somewhat echo others... unless you pick a location so offbeat that readers won't even get the changes you made. Post-apocalyptic Argentina wouldn't be as fun for me, since I wouldn't immediately get the before/after stuff. What you're doing is great, and I'll want to take a look at the book(s) once they're published !

    I love the map and think the style you used is a perfect fit for the flavor of the text.

    Really great map!

    The senario reminds me of Fallout.
