    We're just a presumptuous bunch who think everything is supposed to be in English. Just ignore us

    I think the difference is that wald or walde is more obviously a different language term. Forst being so close to the English word, where a good amount of the map in is English, reads as a typo instead of a different word. But it was meant as a question, not a critique as such.

    Awesome, man. So awesome. I can't rep you again right now, but it's there in spirit.

    Come on Mr. J. I still have a long road to catch up with you, my friend. Remember, your maps were the reason I ended up in this lovely Madhouse of a guild

    Hey, Diamond - if you dragged this guy in here, THANKS! :-)

    Schwarzkreuz, there's very little I could suggest as improvement that wouldn't be just personal preferences. I guess maybe Mr. C. Serpent might look more at home if his lower edge matched the wiggles of the wave texture. And the mountains might have a smidgen more 3-d believability if in a couple of places their tips actually breached the northern coastlines?

    I love the cactus desert symbols. The mountains are as usual crazy-awesome. The understated icons are a nice touch, but should there be a key? I like the scale, but it'd feel more comfortable if there were a unit mentioned - even if it were a totally bogus one. One wants to travel two hundred Somethings, not just two hundred :-).

    I'm neutral on the spelling/naming thing, or leaning slightly toward Different Is Good ...

    Another summer time map... How could I have missed this one?

    Love the sea monster and the sea texture. It is good to see you experimenting with colour. Great map. I agree with jigibson's tips for improving your already awesome map btw.

    Just awesome. Every so often I go digging and find a gem stuck in the back of the forum somewhere. I am so glad I found this one.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
