    Map Techa

    A commissioned piece for a novel. This is the internet version, I also did a smaller b/w version for the print edition.

    Thank you, Max. As many of my maps are very colourful, I wanted to do a more subtle colouring. I'm happy it came out this way.

    That's works very well. Funny, since I'm doing the opposite on the second map of the monthly challenge : more colourful

    Very nice map

    It was a little hard to distinguish which location corresponds to which race. For example, I can't tell if "Bale" belongs to Dark Elves or Humans.
    However, I'm sure it can be hard to depict different types of architecture with just symbols like that, and most of the other races are very distinguished.

    I like how you did the mountains, gave the middle of the map a very cozy feel.

    According to the key, Bale should be human?

    Outstanding work, as expected from you, Sap. I really like this one; it has a Red Epic feel to it, but not as busy (which I think is the main downfall of some of his maps), better color, great icons and layout.

    Thank you, D! I cannot deny that I was partially influenced by Jared's work.

    Very fine job!

    Your sea is really pleasant. The global shapes gives me feeling of a very good board game map.
