Interesting effect with the shading. Is there a reason that you picked to show the map with black and white contrasts (gothic story, vampire story, world overrun by undead, tragic story, etc.)? The main problem that I have with the map is that the shading is so heavy in some areas (especially on the left side of the map) that it makes it difficult to read what the country and geographic feature names are. I'm not saying that you should not shade, but the names of the geographic features should be legible and easy to read. Keep at it, with some further processing and refinement, the map could be very sharp.
