    Another wonderful map Sapiento! There is one thing that bothers me though. It's the legend. Shouldn't the labels be right beside the symbols for mines? Now it looks as if a gold mine had no label and silver mine were a gold mine if you know what I mean. It looks more like a mistake than something intentional...

    That said the map is beautiful.

    Thank you. Yes, a mistake. I replaced the file.

    Awesome as usual.

    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.

    Maybe the Legend could be adjusted so that "Ruined Watchtower" could be on a single line of text. I had to look at it twice to recognize that there wasn't a missing symbol. Maybe also include the solid and dashed brown lines and the dotted yellow lines.

    The map itself is gorgeous.

    Very nice Sap, makes me long for more time to map myself.
