Quarry Port - a town in a river valley
Here's the final for a town map I've been working on - titled Quarry Port:

The WIP thread was a great resource, with loads of great ideas for locations to add to the town.
I wanted to take a shot at a non-traditional defence structure for the town - placing it at the bottom of the cliffs rather than the top, and allowing the cliffs to do most of the work of defending the city. The water-powered stone elevator at the north was a fun addition.
The full-res version is 3300px by 2550px - but I'm selling it as a map pack, so this is a lower res version. Here's the cover of the map pack (which also includes 33 building .png icons for personal use):
