    Septentia makes me want to play Carcassonne… Anyone? Shall I make some tea?

    It is fantastic, really. But still, I can't help but feel that the city sort of overshadows the rest… Colorwise and shapewise the whole map is wonderfully composed, but awesomewise, it's top-right heavy

    Yup, that's my only complaint about this one. The city map is too good.

    THW
    Urenia is a colony of vardenia located south west on another continent across the sea.

    Don't you think that trying to emulate with digital work the traditionnal hand-made work of some great geographers that lived five centuries ago isn't some kind of an evolution? :p Anyway I fear that my next project won't please you more than this one

    Carcassonne? I would definitely (though it's been a while I haven't play to this game) Well I guess your complaint isn't really a bad one

    Utterly astounded at your work! I am gamemaster of a small group, and I stumbled upon Cartographer's Guild while looking for a tutorial on mapmaking and saw your work. Words fail me. Demoralized and amazed at the same time!

    I suppose it would be naive to ask for any advice regarding tutorials to fledgeling mapmakers?
    Are the names/heraldry, etc. mostly of your own invention?

    If you would email me a commission pricing guide I would be grateful. I don't have pm privileges yet, apparently. And if I knew what rep-ing was I would gladly do it (provided it's a good thing)!

    Intentional misspellings and bad kerning. You have a wonderful attention to detail. This map is just beautiful!

    Really excellent work AGAIN, Max. Can't rep you yet, but have a five-star rating and a like instead. And you know I'm coming to eat your brain one of these days...

    Great map Max, apparently I missed this one last week! The City portion is amazing.

    Thanks much Bogie. Funny that everyone seems to dig the city map since at the start it was more a secondary side map in my mind, hence I went with a small one. Finally it tuned out better than I thought
